This is the first book I have read by Jo Robertson which I got free on the kindle, and it would have been worth every penny if I had paid for it. It was a well written without being overwritten, and the author brought you into a time and place in the past. I felt a connection with Emma, the main character who is a reporter and has got involved with a murder case. Her involvement with Malachi the lawyer is real and even if her independence was exaggerated in that she defied her parents it is only people like her who women are independent now.,

An excellent pace that keeps on going until the end of the book with a twist and turn in the plot all the way

Frail Blood is loosely based on the murder trial of a young woman in Southern California, although the author states the characters and locales are solely products of her imagination.

Alma, a servant in the Machado household, is seduced by the youngest son, Joseph. A simple girl, Alma believes Joe loves her and will marry her after they become intimately involved. After she discovers Joe has discarded her for another woman, Alma is determined to make sure what Joseph did to her doesn't happen to another.

She straps on a pistol and confronts Joseph at the Machado house on an evening when she knows the family is out. She's not even sure why she brought the pistol, other than to maybe ensure Joseph listens to what she has to say.

As it turns out, she doesn't say anything but, rather, fires a single shot at Joseph. The last sight she sees is Joseph clutching his shoulder and falling. Overcome with fright and horror, she flees into the woods where she is later captured.

Malachi Rivers is Alma's defense attorney. A man with notorious past swirling around his relationship with his ex-wife and his abusive father, he resides in Placer Hills in the hopes of leading a quiet anonymous life.

Prosecution Attorney Charles Fulton, together with his band of protégés, is full of confidence his case against Alma is solid and she will hang for her crime.

Rivers and Fulton share a mutual dislike and actively antagonize each other at every opportunity.

Emma Knight is the new owner of the town's newspaper in partnership with her uncle. Emma scores a coup when Alma tells her she shot Joseph. Emma prints a damning article outlining Alma's confession. An article that makes Malachi's defence all the more difficult.
