The daughter of a wealthy Hollywood director is kidnapped then found murdered. Could it be her boyfriend who has also disappeared? But then his body is discovered and the investigation leads to the best friend and confident of the director. No, it couldn’t be and so the trial begins.
From the start to the climax and resolution, this story doesn’t stop. Marcia Clark has created a strong character in Rachel Knight. Knight won’t stop at anything to get her suspect. This story delves not in the characters as much it does in the legal system and what it takes to prosecute a much sensationalized case. This nearly 500 page novel was not only educational but engaging for this reader!
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.
