Description

In the second entry in this exciting new series, the search for a missing judge leads Samantha Kincaid into Portland politics and a labyrinth of crime, corruption and cover-ups. Deputy DA Samantha Kincaid is back to work after an attempt on her life and a promotion into the Major Crimes Unit. When the husband of Portland City Judge Clarissa Easterbrook reports her missing and Samantha is called out on the case, she assumes her only job is to make the District Attorney look good until the judge reappears none the worse. When the police discover evidence of foul play, however, Samantha finds herself unearthing secrets that Clarissa wanted to stay hidden, the lingering personal tolls of a crime that occurred decades ago, and corruption at the highest levels of the city's power structure. Her quest for justice could cost her not only her job, but her life. In the skilfully plotted, highly suspenseful follow-up to her acclaimed debut, JUDGMENT CALLS, Alafair Burke once again demonstrates that 'she's got what it takes' (Michael Connelly).With its irreverent heroine and seamless blend of squad rooms, streets and the courtroom, MISSING JUSTICE confirms Burke's place among the genre's most talented newcomers.show more
