Hello and welcome to Monday, and my usual State of theBlog weekly address! I am going throw in what is going on on the blogtalk show, The G-ZONE, also as there is going to be some serious fun and excitement this week also. To start with, please feel free to visit my new and exciting Author’s Page at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Giovanni-Gelati/e/B004XO846Q/ref=ntt_athr_dp_...
Also feel free to purchase the Digital short Story Vincent Zandri and I collaborated on, ”Down Low-Dead”. As of this writing, we have received fourteen reviews, 13 five star and one 4 star review. I will make every effort to have my friends from Trenton with the bent noses find the four star person, and have a discussion with them, make them see the error of their ways, and to rectify this heinous error in judgment. The Amazon link for the story is :

On to today’s novel: Marcia Clark, have you heard of her? Maybe the name rings a bell? I am not going over that stuff, I just want to discuss the novel, but yeah, she is that Marcia Clark, of O.J. Simpson fame.
The novel is interesting; it gives a pretty neat inside look at what possibly goes on in a prosecutor’s office and the heroine is one tough broad. Good stuff. Check out what is between the covers:
Los Angeles D.A. Rachel Knight is a tenacious, wise-cracking, and fiercely intelligent prosecutor in the city's most elite division. When her colleague, Jake, is found dead at a grisly crime scene, Rachel is shaken to the core. She must take over his toughest case: the assault of a young woman from a prominent family.
But she can't stop herself from digging deeper into Jake's death, a decision that exposes a world of power and violence and will have her risking her reputation--and her life--to find the truth.
With her tremendous expertise in the nuances of L.A. courts and crime, and with a vibrant ensemble cast of characters, Marcia Clark combines intimate detail, riotous humor, and visceral action in a debut thriller that marks the launch of a major new figure on the crime-writing scene.”
I enjoyed the read. The characters she has created seem real enough; the action comes pretty hard and quick, and the realism is there. I was most interested in reading this to see if she could create the world here, character inhabited, if she could draw me in, capture my interest and hold it for the duration of the novel. I was pleasantly surprised that she did and was glad. If you are a fan of this genre, looking for a good read on a tough as nails broad that makes no excuses but causes others to do so, then this is for you. If the novel fits, you must download it. I hope Johnny Cochrane turns over in his grave on that one.
