Blood Defense (Samantha Brinkman #1) By: Marcia Clark
"First in a new series from bestselling author and famed prosecutor Marcia Clark, a “terrific writer and storyteller” (James Patterson).
Samantha Brinkman, an ambitious, hard-charging Los Angeles criminal defense attorney, is struggling to make a name for herself and to drag her fledgling practice into the big leagues. Sam lands a high-profile double-murder case in which one of the victims is a beloved TV star—and the defendant is a decorated veteran LAPD detective. It promises to be exactly the kind of media sensation that would establish her as a heavy hitter in the world of criminal law.
Though Sam has doubts about his innocence, she and her two associates (her closest childhood friend and a brilliant ex-con) take the case. Notorious for living by her own rules—and fearlessly breaking everyone else’s—Samantha pulls out all the stops in her quest to uncover evidence that will clear the detective. But when a shocking secret at the core of the case shatters her personal world, Sam realizes that not only has her client been playing her, he might be one of the most dangerous sociopaths she’s ever encountered."

"Blood Defense" by Marcia Clark
I found "Blood Defense" was one good mystery, suspense, surprises, crime and thriller read all round up into one good long fast moving read. Be ready for a lots of twist and turn that will definitely keep your attention to he end. The main character [Samantha] along with several other supporting ones[Michele & and Alex] and a few complex ones were well developed, defined, portrayed and believable all helping to give the reader quite a attention grabber read. I will say that this was definitely one of those reads where I thought wow is this what was it like in a day in the life of this lawyer. When you think you have it all figured out there will be many more surprises just around the corner for this lawyer and her team. If you are looking for a good mystery that flows so well with all of its twist I would suggest you pick up this well written novel to see for yourself how well this author brings it all out to the readers. That ending of this story was quite one that I didn't see coming only leaving me to say wow! So, if you like a mystery with lots of surprises I would definitely recommend this one for you and I look forward to this authors next series.
I received this book free read with my Amazon Prime membership.
