"[ Moral Defense ] has it all: a hard-charging lawyer heroine, tough-as-nails cops...as well as fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants pacing and page-turning twists." --The Associated Press

For defense attorney Samantha Brinkman, it's not about guilt or innocence--it's about making sure her clients walk.

In the follow-up to bestselling Blood Defense , Samantha is hired as the legal advocate for Cassie Sonnenberg after a brutal stabbing left the teenager's father and brother dead, and her mother barely clinging to life. It's a tabloid-ready case that has the nation in an uproar--and Sam facing her biggest challenge yet. Why did Cassie survive? Is she hiding something?

As Sam digs in to find the answers, she's surprised to find herself identifying with Cassie, becoming more and more personally entangled in the case. But when Sam finally discovers the reason for that kinship, she faces a choice she never imagined she'd have to make.

For Defense attorney Samantha Brinkman, it's not about guilt – it's about making sure her clients walk. In this sequel to Marcia Clark's best selling Blood Defense, Samantha is hired as the legal advocate for Cassie Sonnenberg after a brutal stabbing left the teenager's father and brother dead, and her mother barely clinging to life. It's a tabloid-ready case that has the nation in an uproar, and Sam facing her biggest challenge yet. Why did Cassie survive? Is she hiding something? As Sam digs in to find the answers, she is surprised to find herself identifying with Cassie, becoming more and more personally entangled in the case. When Sam finally finds the reason for that kinship, however, she faces a choice she never imagined she would have to make. (Description edited from the synopsis on the back cover of this paperback edition, a synopsis presumably provided by the publisher – Thomas & Mercer.)

I thought the three side plots were a distraction. They weren't necessarily uninteresting, just they distracted from the main plot, which I thought was very interesting. In fact, the main plot was so interesting that I sometimes felt like Billy Crystal in “When Harry Met Sally,” wanting to turn to the last page to find out what happens, even though I wasn't particularly happy with what did happen.

This is the 2nd Samantha Btinkman book and like the 1st one (Blood Defense) it kept you reading right to the end. Samantha, who is the main character, is a lawyer who pushes the boundaries of the law. There are twists and turns throughout the book and the ending leaves you wondering what is going to happen next. Hopefully there will be a 3rd book in this series.
