    • Abstract:
      Summary: "A murder investigation draws firebrand attorney Samantha Brinkman into her boyfriend's past in this novel of high-risk suspense by bestselling author Marcia Clark. When it comes to relationships and self-preservation, defense attorney Samantha Brinkman has always been cut and run. But it's different with her new lover, Niko, an ambitious and globally famous entrepreneur. Sam is putting her faith in him. She has to. He's also her new client-a suspect in the murder of an investor whose shady dealings turned Niko's good life upside down. He had the motive: revenge. As did many others who banked a fortune on the wrong man. That's a point in Niko's favor. So is his alibi for the day of the slaying. Until that alibi mysteriously disappears. As Sam's feverish search for another viable killer begins, the investigation only leads deeper into Niko's past and its secrets. From the darkest suspicions to final judgment, fighting for Niko is Sam's job. To do it, she must risk everything on a man who could make all her worst fears come true."--Publisher description.

Criminal defense lawyer Samantha Brinkman thinks she's found the man for her in martial artist Niko Ferrell, until things go south. An investment company Niko had recommended to friends and family, including his single mother, admits that a major trade in cryptocurrency has gone bad, losing millions. Days later, Niko's mother, who had invested everything with the company, suffers a debilitating stroke, despite Niko's assurances that he will take care of her financially. Then one of the two company traders is found murdered from a martial-arts blow, and the other soon disappears. Sam, who occasionally operates outside the law, according to her own sense of justice, is firmly behind Niko even as police eye him as a suspect. However, as she delves more thoroughly into his background, she begins to question whether he is being honest with her. With its fast-moving plot and winning characters, this fourth entry in the Brinkman series will keep readers turning pages and rooting for Sam. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

In Clark's excellent fourth thriller featuring L.A. defense attorney Samantha "Sam" Brinkman (after 2017's Snap Judgment), Sam has found her dream man in Niko Ferrell, a funny, smart hunk who's achieved global fame and fortune with a business empire centered on his martial arts skills. Her cynical belief that her happiness is too good to last is validated when their vacation on Bora Bora is interrupted by news that Gold Strike Enterprises, a company Niko invested in, has gone under. While the significant financial loss is one Niko can afford, the same isn't true for others to whom he recommended the investment, including his mother, who's wiped out and suffers a debilitating stroke from the resultant stress. That tragedy gives Niko a powerful motive for murder. When Niko and Sam discover the dead body of one of the men who ran Gold Strike, Niko becomes the prime suspect in what turns into a homicide case. Sam's need to believe her boyfriend's innocence is tested when she learns secrets about his past he withheld from her. The plot twists are both plausible and shocking in this intelligent page-turner. Fans of whodunits featuring ethical dilemmas will be pleased. Agent: Dan Conaway, Writers House. (Apr.)
