Description from Amazon:

When the daughter of a billionaire Hollywood director is found murdered after what appears to be a kidnapping gone wrong, Los Angeles Special Trials prosecutor Rachel Knight and Detective Bailey Keller find themselves at the epicenter of a combustible and high-profile court case. Then a prime suspect is revealed to be one of Hollywood’s most popular and powerful talent managers–and best friend to the victim’s father. With the director vouching for the manager’s innocence, the Hollywood media machine commences an all-out war designed to discredit both Rachel and her case.
Killer Ambition is at once a thrilling ride through the darker side of Tinseltown and a stunning courtroom drama with the brilliant insider’s perspective that Marcia Clark is uniquely qualified to give.

My thoughts:

The third book in the Rachel Knight series by Marcia Clark has Rachel sparring with the defense in the court room, something we haven’t seen too much of in the first two books. In my opinion it’s the best so far. It’s a blockbuster (overwhelming, impressive and effective). It’s worth every single one of the 657 pages. Suspenseful. Parts of it had me biting my nails. I was far from ever being bored.

She continues to use the gift she has of description which makes me think I’m right there in the book, Yep, I’m one of her team; and she still comes up with great and witty dialogue. A new character has also been introduced, Declan. Hope to see more of him in future Rachel knights’.

I highly recommend this book and if you like legal thrillers start the Rachel Knight series.

I was given a copy of this book to review from Mulhollard Books through NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.
