Known for her work on the O.J. Simpson trial, Marcia Clark crafts a dazzling fiction debut with GUILT BY ASSOCIATION, a legal thriller about a tough L.A. prosecutor facing the most difficult case of her career. Rachel Knight is not easily rattled, but the murder of her friend and co-worker--who was in the middle of a complicated case--shakes her to the core. Assuming responsibility for the case he was working, which involves the severe beating of a well-connected young woman, Rachel also investigates her colleague's strange death. The cases intertwine and amplify each other, sending her down a dangerous path into a totally engrossing investigation.
