Review “FINAL JUDGMENT” By Marcia Clark

This is Clark’s fourth Samantha Brinkman Legal Thriller. The scene opens on Bora Bora, with Samantha and her new lover, Niko Ferrell. Back in the states, Niko makes his living teaching Krav Maga. Samantha has finally relaxed enough to trust him, in spite of her control freak, suspicious nature. The idyll is shattered when Niko gets a phone call telling him that his friends and his mother have all been wiped out in a financial disaster. They all invested in Gold Strike Enterprises—after he told them it was a sure thing.

Niko’s mother, Sophia, lost everything. That wouldn’t make her destitute, since her son is more than capable of surviving the losses and could support her, but she’s a proud woman. So proud, she works herself up to becoming gravely ill. The two men at Gold Strike, Bryan Poser and Tanner Handel, each come to Niko and tell him, in confidence, that the loss is the fault of the other person. Niko seems angry enough to kill them both. Only one turns up dead, and Niko is the obvious lead suspect.

Samantha rallies her team, Michelle—office manager and BFF, and Alex Medrano, the investigator and skilled hacker. She also has somewhat of an ally in her biological father, Dale Pearson, senior homicide detective on the LAPD force. Financial crimes are uncovered, along with a call-girl operation that operates in the sinister shadows of LA, and, worst of all, pedophilia. As everyone on the team digs deeper, and the Gold Strike partner who wasn’t murdered, Tanner, disappears, more and more signs point to Niko’s guilt. Samantha proceeds to either clear him or convict him, which will break her heart and smash what has been her only chance at a good relationship.

The plot proceeds through high and low, throughout LA and the environs, keeping us on the edge of our reading chairs, late into the night.
