If you liked the first two Rachel Knight mysteries, you'll enjoy this one, too

The main character clearly draws on a lot of the personal experiences of the author, and is a flawed but likeable, sassy criminal prosecutor who ends up doing a lot of detective work as well. I liked the introduction of a second strong character to the cast, but I would have liked to have seen her personality developed a little more deeply.
I also really liked the addition of the Hollywood element to the plotline. This book gets more into the courtroom side of the criminal prosecution process. While the voir dire (jury selection process) part is interesting, the amount of time spent on the court process slows the pace of the book. However, this picks up in the end, for another suspenseful finish.
