Would you kill to protect your career?

Deputy DA Rachel Knight and Detective Bailey Keller are catapulted into the most high-profile investigation of their careers when the teenage daughter of superstar director Russell Antonovich, one of Hollywood's most powerful men, is kidnapped.

Things go wrong fast. The young girl's body is found abandoned in the trunk of a car. And Rachel's hunt for the killer puts her on a collision course with some of the most celebrated players in the film industry - and into conflict with her own boss, who is desperate to stay on their good side.

It seems the glittering surface of Hollywood covers a darkness to match the most depraved criminals. But Rachel will bring the truth to light... no matter who wants it to stay hidden.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Marcia Clark and the Rachel Knight series * . *
It's no big surprise that Marcia Clark knows her way around a courtroom, and a murder mystery - but she's also a terrific writer and storyteller. -- James Patterson
Suspenseful and gripping.... the best yet in the series. Clark's own expertise enables her to realistically portray the drama and vicissitudes of a criminal prosecution * Publishers Weekly *
Legal thrillers don't get much better than this.... Boasting a feisty protagonist, a winning supporting cast, and steadily escalating courtroom drama, KILLER AMBITION finds Clark at the top of her game * Booklist *
A refreshing and suspenseful portrayal of high-stakes trials * Los Angeles Times *
You must read this book: it is wildly and complexly plotted, ebulliently witty and filled with riotous humor; it details the inner workings of the L.A. legal system with unprecedented accuracy and verve - and to top it off, it is a damn, damn, good thriller -- James Ellroy
Marcia Clark's debut novel showcases her experience and knowledge of the legal system. The pace, plot and dialogue are as sharp as they come in the genre. -- David Baldacci
This introduction to LA special prosecutor Rachel Knight charms from the first line then surfs a tide of knockabout humour, sassy backchat and armour-piercing observation * Daily Telegraph *
Taut, compelling, and accomplished, with a gritty authenticity that comes from an insider's knowledge of the criminal justice system...A first rate legal thriller -- Meg Gardiner
Knight makes a compelling protagonist - rebellious, straight-forward, salty * Guardian *
Spying on the system's inner workings proves increasingly addictive, and it's refreshing to find a lead character pursuing a stressful life because she actually enjoys it. A blade-sharp read. * Financial Times *
Marcia Clark knows her villains, and GUILT BY DEGREES gives us one you won't forget. She also gives us one of the toughest and most appealing heroes to come along in a very long time. Prosecutor Rachel Knight is smart, funny, and just about fearless in her pursuit of justice and a good martini -- Joseph Finder
