A popular actress has been found murdered. A plucky criminal defense lawyer, Samantha lands the case. Marcia Clark is a very talented and clever writer. I was enjoying the book right away. I liked Samantha, she is very funny and down to earth. I liked the mystery and all the descriptions of the sleazier parts of L.A. A Stephanie Plum type How to get away With Murder type mystery. A fun and exciting summer thriller read. I liked this book so much, that I want to continue reading about these characters and future books in the series. This book had a lot of twists and turns that I didn't expect. I was really caught up in the story and couldn't put the book down. Great read. 5 stars.
