Did you ever want to escape from a bad situation by totally turning your life around? In “A Quicker Blood,” a young woman lawyer attempts to change her life by assuming another woman’s identity and escaping to what she hopes will be a new and idyllic existence.
Three years out of law school, Karen B. Clark is already the stereotypical “burned-out” lawyer. Weary of life in New York City, bored by the work at her Wall Street law firm, and fed up with her two-timing boyfriend, Karen impulsively takes off for a lawyers’ convention in Chicago. There she meets another young woman named Karen B. Clark, whom Karen calls "K.B." K.B. has just finished law school and is about to begin her legal career in the small town of Walden, Wisconsin, where a law firm has hired her, sight unseen.
When both Karen and K.B. are injured in separate mishaps, Karen awakens in a hospital where she’s been identified as K.B. After learning that the real K.B. is dead, Karen decides to seize the moment and turn her life around. She'll take K.B.’s place and try life as a small-town lawyer.
In Walden, Karen relishes her new existence and begins a sizzling romance, but she soon uncovers terrible secrets that lead her to fear for her life. Strong and smart, Karen survives a host of challenges, only to hear some startling revelations at the end of the story.
