Synopsis: Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid is back at work after an attempt on her life and a promotion into the Major Crimes Unit. When the husband of Portland, Oregon city judge Clarissa Easterbrook reports her missing and Samantha is called on the case, she assumes her only job is to make the district attorney look good until the judge turns up. When the police discover evidence of foul play, however, Samantha finds herself unearthing secrets that Clarissa had wanted to stay hidden, the lingering personal tolls of a crime that occurred decades ago. And when those secrets lead to the discovery of corruption at the highest levels of the city’s power structure, Samantha realises that her quest for justice could cost her not only her job, but her life. Missing Justice, the highly suspenseful follow-up to Judgment Calls, confirms Burke’s place among the genre’s most talented and exciting newcomers. ‘A born storyteller. Burke ... has created an attractive heroine whom I look forward to meeting again.’ — Sunday Telegraph ‘The author’s background as a former deputy DA in Portland lends gritty ambience to this modern parable of greed and ambition.’ — Booklist
From the Back Cover:
Newly promoted Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid's first assignment back after a much-needed vacation is a hot one: Judge Clarissa Easterbrook has gone missing from a wealthy Portland neighborhood, and Sam has to make the DA look good until the prodigal judge returns. Yet it soon becomes clear that the woman didn't vanish voluntarily-and it's no surprise when her bludgeoned body turns up at a local construction site.
What is surprising is how quickly a suspect is apprehended while Clarissa's husband, a prominent surgeon, is cleared of suspicion. It all seems a bit cut-and-dried to Sam, especially when she discovers that Clarissa was keeping secrets that the city's elite would prefer to stay hidden.
Now, with each piece of the puzzle she uncovers, Sam is getting closer to the truth-and to the wrong side of some very powerful people. It seems Clarissa's secrets may have caught up to her in the worst of ways. And in her quest to exonerate an innocent man, Sam could be next in line...
"A wonderful writer, with the kind of skill I most admire...I'm a big fan"
"A very clever whodunit long on red herrings, shadowy motives, and sly humor."
