Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* In a horrific scene torn from the headlines, two masked gunmen massacre students and staff at a pep rally in the gym of their suburban L.A. high school. Two bodies found in the library, masks at their sides, are presumably the shooters, who committed mutual suicide. But it’s soon apparent that the library scene was staged and the real shooters escaped, having not only exceeded Columbine’s body count but also having walked away alive. And this is just the beginning, one of the shooters says in a letter to Deputy DA Rachel Knight (who achieved media prominence in a previous case); this is a competition in mass murder. So Knight and Detective Bailey Keller must work against the clock to find the killers, consulting with psychologists and dealing with parents who deny that their children could be perpetrators. It’s a bone-wearying search, undertaken carefully with a future trial in mind, as seemingly good suspects turn out to be dead ends. Clark handles sometimes painfully raw scenes with great sensitivity and skillfully works in material about what makes a mass murderer, as she ratchets up suspense to a deadly conclusion. Her fourth legal thriller featuring Knight is another tour de force. --Michele Leber

Review

"Clark handles sometimes painfully raw scenes with great sensitivity and skillfully works in material about what makes a mass murderer, as she ratchets up suspense to a deadly conclusion. Her fourth legal thriller featuring Knight is another tour de force."―Booklist (starred review)

"What could be worse than a Columbine- style school shooting? Rachel Knight finds out in Clark's ticking time bomb of a thriller, the fourth in her series featuring the L.A. deputy DA.... The twisty plot and dynamic duo make for a suspenseful, if sobering, page-turner."―Publishers Weekly

"With THE COMPETITION, Marcia Clark has upped the ante yet again, reaching new creative heights. Though the subject matter is both dark and disturbing, her sensitive handling of the material and the informative nature of the narrative allows the book to transcend traditional thriller fare. Pulse-pounding, poignant, and provocative, this is a story that will engage your heart and your mind. It's also proof beyond a reasonable doubt that fiction can help us to understand reality."―John Valeri, Examiner

"A real page-turner."―Mary Lignor, Suspense Magazine
