This is another really good book, the second in the Samantha Brinkman series. In this book a family is butchered by an unknown, possibly a gang member. The only one untouched is the adopted teenage daughter. Throughout the book a horrible story of psychological and sexual abuse is revealed. Because Samantha is the young girl's attorney and she herself has a history of abuse at the hands of her stepfather, she is inclined to believe. As the story progresses more horrific acts come out. Are they true? Clark does a great job leading the reader/listener between two prominent characters and until you hear the last chapter you will not know who committed the crime.
Samantha is surrounded by a cast of colorful characters that really fill the story with excellent dialogue.
Interesting subplots going on as well that include drugs and human trafficking and some not so ethical acts by the attorney but done for a good cause.
Angela Dawe did a great job narrating. She is normally not on my top narrator list but I believe she has found her niche with this series.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Our lead character, Samantha Brinkman, we're supposed to believe is some fancy lawyer, who goes on TV shows yet still speaks using a "girl from the block" slang, all the time. Plus the narrator made it sound even more ridiculous, and it really turned me off. I don't think that she was a very good selection as the narrator for this story.
Was Moral Defense worth the listening time?
I'm not sure was possessed me to listen to the second book in the series, after I wasn't especially thrilled with the first one, but I'm definitely not going to continue on this series. The series of highly unlikely events just compounds the ridiculous of the narration.

This is no two in a series and as someone who doesn't really like series very much, I can honestly say I'm now converted. I can't wait to read the next...... however many.
This story if full of twists and turns. Ms Clark is a master of changing your mind for you! Did the sweet fifteen year old adopted daughter kill her family in cold blood, or didn't she? As Sam and her team work on this case and numerous others it seems, sometimes yes and sometimes no! The main characters in the books are developing nicely and the sub story which can't be mentioned without giving away the best twist ever, is also developing and growing into a book in its own right. Waiting now for more in the series!
