Chapter One

He moved with purpose. That alone might have drawn attention to the man in the soiled wool overcoat, but the postlunch crowd was a briskly flowing river of bodies.
Friday 56:
I tried to keep the triumphant note out of my voice. "You've got my word, Walter. I'll be so civilzed, you won't even believe it's me."
This week I am reading Guilt by Degrees by Marcia Clark. This book has been on my TBR mountain since July 23, 2014. Here is the description from Amazon:
Someone has been watching D.A. Rachel Knight--someone who's Rachel's equal in brains, but with more malicious intentions. It began when a near-impossible case fell into Rachel's lap, the suspectless homicide of a homeless man. In the face of courthouse backbiting and a gauzy web of clues, Rachel is determined to deliver justice. She's got back-up: tough-as-nails Detective Bailey Keller. As Rachel and Bailey stir things up, they're shocked to uncover a connection with the vicious murder of an LAPD cop a year earlier. Something tells Rachel someone knows the truth, someone who'd kill to keep it secret.

Harrowing, smart, and riotously entertaining, GUILT BY DEGREES is a thrilling ride through the world of LA courts with the unforgettable Rachel Knight.


  1. I enjoy Marcia Clark's books, and want to read more of them. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  2. I need a good murder mystery now. I need something lighter than what I've been reading. This sounds good. My Friday Quotes

  3. Great snippets! Sounds like an awesome read. Enjoy! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

  4. Never read anything by her. The beginning teases the senses!

  5. I have a couple of books by this author but I haven't read them yet. They sound really good.

  6. I've heard good things about Marcia Clark's books. This one sounds good. Yay for getting something off the TBR pile!

  8. Wow - that must be a big TBR pile, if it's still got books from 2014. I cleaned mine out the other day - removing some, and reading others, and I feel so much better. I like the look of this one, though...

  9. It's always great to knock a book off that tbr! :)
