Killer Ambition

Book 3, A Rachel Knight Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Los Angeles D.A. Rachel Knight faces down the murderously ambitious side of Hollywood in Marcia Clark's newest thriller.
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.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 15, 2013 – Rachel Knight finds her professional future on the line in former prosecutor Clark s suspenseful and gripping third legal thriller featuring the L.A. deputy DA (after 2012 s Guilt by Degrees), the best yet in the series. Teenager Hayley Antonovich has disappeared, and her father, Russell, a blockbuster Hollywood producer, alerts the authorities only after he s paid the $1 million ransom without getting his child back. Hoping that Hayley can be found alive, Knight and her allies in the LAPD feverishly comb the ransom drop for clues. News that Hayley had been dating 19-year-old Brian Shandling makes the latter an obvious person of interest, but before he can be located, Hayley is found stabbed to death. Knight and her team believe they have identified the killer, but she must use every trick in her trial lawyer s arsenal to have a hope of prevailing at trial. Clark s own expertise enables her to realistically portray the drama and vicissitudes of a criminal prosecution.

Customer Reviews

Gritty As a Courthouse

Only an author like Marcia Clark, who has "walked the walk", can accurately describe the pressures of a high-profile murder case. As a long-time Los Angeles homicide detective, I have experienced during trial, the late-night meetings in the D.A.'s office; the struggle to interpret the expressions on the jurors' faces; the frustration of witnesses who fail to appear; the strategy sessions...the frustration of judicial rulings that defy logic or appear to be contrary to established case law.

Marcia Clark, perhaps more importantly, has captured the essence of why prosecutors and detectives do what we do. The desire to seek justice, to speak for the dead; to ease the burden on the families of the victims; but also for the intense sense of camaraderie by all involved in the prosecution. Nothing is sweeter than the victories nor more bitter than the defeats.

I'd like to buy Rachael Knight a Martini, but failing that, I'll have to impatiently wait for Marcia's next book.


Very difficult to put down.. You would want to read the whole thing in one day.

Killer Ambition

This was, beyond a doubt, one of, if not the best book I've ever read. Marcia Clark just keeps getting better and better and I can't wait for another book of hers to read. She will really have to go some in order to top Killer Ambition though. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read!
