Clark's work has contributed some of the best novels this genre has seen, and Killer Ambition carries the torch one installment further.
If you haven't read her other two, you'll still love this one, but I highly recommend you keep up with the series! Truly excellent stuff here for any kind of reader!
The relationships between Rachel and her friends/coworkers/romantic entanglements remain strong -- although I think it was a bit more in the background this time around, and the book suffered for it.
I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure we spent more time in court in this novel than the two previous. Which is good, on the one hand, because these are supposed to be legal thrillers, so it's good to have the courtroom proceedings. On the other hand, these are supposed to be legal thrillers, and on the whole, the pace and momentum of this books comes to a standstill in the details of the trial. Now, maybe this is just me -- after my Perry Mason phase in high school, most of the courtroom depictions I've read have been by David Rosenfelt or from Paul Levine's Solomon & Lord series -- and while Clark has a fun, light touch -- she's nowhere near as amusing as these two. Similarly, she doesn't have the gravitas and talent of Michael Connelly -- by the time Mickey Haller gets to court, the brakes have failed and there's nothing to slow the runaway freight train of tension, suspense and energy. I'm not saying I want Clark to turn into a clone of any of these gentlemen -- I'm just saying that until she improves, her readers are better served with Rachel & co. doing the bulk of their work in the field.Read more ›
For me, Ms. Clark's use of humor was good, but a little overdone, especially in tense scenes I thought she should have scaled it back. A small flaw in a five-star read! Highly recommend.
What one has come to expect of Ms. Clark, thanks to her extraordinary legal skills and experience is,of course, present in "Killer Ambition." What has been added to this very potent mix is a deeper penetration into Rachel's personal life: her family, her friends and her interior existence.
The series' promise has been fulfilled and surpassed once again.
