The author is reminiscent of her father (James Lee Burke) who is one of my favorite authors. Her books keep getting better and her characters more defined and believable.

Alafair Burke's "Close Case" is as 'inside' of the system of law enforcement as it is of a tightly bonded family with one exception. The police are one side of the family and the prosecution,Attorney General and the Deputy District Attorneys are relatives.
Close Case is about a murder to close for comfort, and an investigation too close to home and a case too close to call. Burke delivers with inside details from a two point perspective. The police and their family ties to one another that doesn't allow questions concerning their tactics. In other words, they are extremely protective of one another even if some deputy district attorney feels like their case has been compromised by them. A good defense attorney can use this chink in the armor to their advantage. And Samantha Kincade, DDA is in a no win situation - lose the case and lose the respect of those providing her with evidence, no matter how it was obtained.
The book cuts to the chase and digs deep into loyalty,conscious and integrity. A real good read and by far the best of the Samantha Kincaid trilogy.
Burke shines with this story, a real star rising above the horizon !

This was another great episode in the life of Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid. I hope that Alafair Burke continues this series. I enjoy the characters in her novels and appreciate the development of the world of Portland. She does it so well the city becomes one of the characters in each mystery facing Kincaid.
