Marcia Clark has another winner on her hands.
This book is the second in the Samantha Brinkman series, and while it can be read as a standalone, several subplots do carry over from the first book, so you may want to read that one first.
OK. So. Samantha is called on the represent a young woman who stumbled into the brutal slaying of her adopted family. But soon after, the young woman, Cassie, begins displaying weird behavior, and Sam has to wonder whether everything was really perfect with this suburban family.
The main plot – the family murders – was really intriguing. It kept taking twists and turns, right up until the very end. It also approached them in a good way, which keeps the reader guessing, because it really could go in many directions.
Again – read until the last pages!
The subplots mentioned earlier also continue, which was interesting. What I like about Samantha is that she blurs the lines between justice in the legal sense and justice in a literal sense. It’s really interesting to think about.
I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes a good mystery. But be warned: you’ll be reading every spare minute you get!
