Why I started Reading Alafair Burke's Books
One day at the library I was looking for enough books to get me through an unpleasant medical procedure. A man who was browsing the new books next to me recommended I check out the first three Samantha Kincaid Legal Thrillers. I'm glad I did. I had not read anything by Alafair Burke before, but I'd like to read more of her work.
Samantha (Sam) Kincaid is a Multnomah County deputy district attorney (DDA) in Portland, Oregon. Sam had been an Assisant U. S. Attorney in New York before her then husband Roger had gotten a job as in-house counsel with Nike in Portland, so she had moved with him. After they had moved, she discovered he was playing around and she divorced him. Her first DDA assignment was in the Drug and Vice Division (DVD).
Reviews of the Samantha Kincaid Legal Thrillers
The author, Alafair Burke, is a former DDA in Portland who now teaches law and appears on television as a legal commentator. We can assume she has first-hand knowledge of her subject. I'm hoping to pick up another of her books soon. I was sorry to see the last one end. For more of my reviews of mysteries and thrillers, see Bookworm Buffet, my book review blog.
