In the third installment of Marcia Clark's bestselling series, attorney Samantha Brinkman's investigation into a family's deadly secrets is compromised by a threat from her past.

When the daughter of prominent civil litigator Graham Hutchins is found with her throat slashed, the woman's spurned ex-boyfriend seems the likely suspect. But only days later, the young man dies in what appears to be a suicide. Or was it? Now authorities are faced with a possible new crime. And their person of interest is Hutchins. After all, avenging the death of his daughter is the perfect reason to kill. If he's as innocent as he claims, only one lawyer has what it takes to prove it: his friend and colleague Samantha Brinkman.

It's Sam's obligation to trust her new client. Yet the deeper she digs on his behalf, the more entangled she becomes in a thicket of family secrets, past betrayals, and multiple motives for murder. To win her case, she's prepared to bend any law and cross any boundary that stands in her way. Sam has always played by her own rules, and it's always far. But this case cuts so deep and so personal that one false move could cost her everything.

Excellent addition to the Samantha Brinkman series...

I have thoroughly enjoyed all four of the Samantha Brinkman books. This is a very well developed character with multiple flaws, she is not the superwoman type attorney making this a very believable story. Based on who the author is it makes you wonder if there is some truth in the fiction.
In this book Brinkman finds herself representing a father whose daughter has been murdered. Her boyfriend is the prime suspect and then he dies - murder or suicide? Now the father is the suspect... The boyfriend was quite unsavory, the daughter has lots of secrets. She had been an overachiever who grew up in a very controlling environment, now free and in college...
There are a few cases going on simultaneously and all are very interestingly intertwined.
Angela Dawe does an excellent job narrating.
This is a very good book and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.

Thank You.

Excellent legal thriller!

My only issues with Snap Judgement are that the plot develops too slowly and that Angela Dawe narrates the audio book. Taking the narration issue first, I find Angela Dawe's voice irritating, but she did an good job of narrating. The plot line is outstanding, but the middle of the novel develops too slowly; the novel is unnecessarily wordy. Marcia Clark continues to develop as a writer. The Samantha Brinkman series is about serious social and legal issues whereas Clark's earlier Rachel Knight series was light and fun. There is nothing light or fun about Snap Judgement: when high school and college age girls send nude selfies to their boyfriends they are taking a risk that can ruin their lives. In summary, this is a complex, serious, and worthwhile novel. Despite my concern with excessive wordiness and a slow developing plot it deserves and earns 5 stars.

Good Read/Great Dialogue

I enjoy this series. Sam is a thinker. I would like it better if the language was cleaned up.

Another EXCELLENT book from Marcia Clark!

Marcia Clark doesn't disappoint with this 3rd installment of the Samantha Brinkman series. Her writing and story telling ranks right up there with the best in the Mystery/Thriller/Legal Drama genres. Great character and plot development. Sam Brinkman, while extremely likable, is a gritty, no-nonsense defense attorney with a passion for seeking the truth and defending her clients no matter how difficult (and sometimes dangerous) the task becomes. I highly recommend this book and this series. Also, check out Marcia Clark's "Rachel Knight" series. Both are excellent!

Good story

Could use the the line "poured myself a double of Patrone Silver" a few less times. Has to be other ways to take up space....rather repetitive.
Also poor attempt at use of humerous analogies......too many.

Trust Is For The Young

What made the experience of listening to Snap Judgment the most enjoyable?

I am a true fan of Ms Dawe, over 100 of her reads, which is how I found Ms Clark's books.
I have since listened to Ms LaVoy series of this author, don't miss it. The editing on that series is not as good as this series.
Ms Clark has a great sense of sarcasm, and Ms Dawe delivers it as the author intended.
Note: I do use the new 1.25x speed.
These are not a dark series e.g. Dennis Lehane or Karin Slaughter, both author's stories have kept me awake with gore, and terror and I no longer buy them even though my fave narrator's read them.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love the whole crew, and Ms Dawe brings out the best in each one. I love Alex, who wouldn't. Dale sounds like a mature hunk!

Which scene was your favorite?

Ms Clark has hit her stride with this book, and editing is so much better. Story moves quickly, and is pure entertainment. The next book's outline can be seen in your imagination.
I look forward to the next book in this series with Ms Dawe reading it. Note, you don't have to read in order, but you get the flavor of the relationship between Dale and Sam.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes, I did.
If you like light mysteries that entertain, but don't scare the daylights out of you, see Ms Dawe reading the Clyde Phillips, Jane Candotti series and my fave, Tiffany Snow series.
If you like romance, my all time faves, Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood and the Nora Roberts the MacGregor series, Ms Dawes Scotts brogue is the best. Enjoy

Great new series

Marcia Clark has an extraordinary talent of being able to write law in her mystery novels. She does it in a way that doesn’t go over the lay person’s head and is fantastic at writing both for the DA and defense attorney’s point of view. Love the red herrings and plot twists! Great book!

Another Edgy Lawyer and PI Case--Samantha Is Hard

Another really good book about a sharp lawyer with attitude. I listened in Audible and Angela Dawe, the narrator, captured the anxiety induced plot to perfection. Only someone with knowledge about investigations and criminals could write a story like this. Marcia Clark, as we know, has the chops. Samantha Brinkman has her posse, Mishie and Alex work closely. She couldn't do without either one but Alex is the guy who can get to places she can't. Like hacking into phones and web sites. He's the guy I'd want in my corner. Her dad, Dale, is also a keeper. I found myself anxious listening because the narrator enthused her narrative with the sensations that a lawyer trying to solve a murder would exhibit. There was a lot going on and I'm glad to say that Samantha handled it all with her usual white knuckle approach. Bertha, her car, may be on the way out but Sam is here to stay. Can't wait for Book 4.
