Description

The "master of heart-pounding suspense"—New York Times bestseller Phillip Margolin—returns with a new legal thriller starring Robin Lockwood. A young woman accuses a prominent local college athlete of rape. Convicted with the help of undisputable DNA evidence, the athlete swears his innocence and threatens both his lawyer and his accuser as he's sent to prison. Not long after, there's another rape and the DNA test shows that the same person committed both rapes—which is seemingly impossible since the man convicted of the first rape was in prison at the time of the second one. Now, the convicted athlete, joined by a new lawyer, is granted a new trial and bail. Shortly thereafter, his original lawyer disappears and his law partner is murdered.

Robin Lockwood is a young lawyer with a prestigious small law firm and a former MMA fighter who helped pay for Yale Law School with her bouts. She is representing the victim of the first rape for her civil lawsuit against her rapist, who is now convinced the rapist is stalking her and trying to intimidate her. At the same time, another client is up on a murder charge—one that should be dismissed as self-defense—but the D.A. trying the case is determined to bring it to trial. Now she has to mastermind two impossible cases, trying to find the hidden truth that links the two of them.

Phillip Margolin, the master of the legal thriller, returns in one of his twistiest, most compelling crime novels yet.

        Convicted of rape owing to solid DNA evidence, a local college athlete is granted a new trial when a second rape is committed while he is behind bars--and the DNA evidence matches that in the first assault. Thereafter, his original lawyer vanishes and the lawyer's partner is murdered--all of which creates trouble for Robin Lockwood, who finds herself defending the initial victim in a civil lawsuit against the man she accused, whom she now fears is stalking her. Another keenly intricate plot from the New York Times best-selling author, recently seen with The Third Victim.

        December 15, 2018
        Portland attorney Robin Lockwood (The Third Victim, 2017) gets a second case--or rather a perfect torrent of second cases.Outraged that the police have granted bail to college football star Blaine Hastings, who's accused of raping her daughter, Randi, during a frat party, Maxine Stark wants Robin to sue the pants off the guy. Blaine has big pants, too, since his father, insurance executive Blaine Sr., has money to spare. Armed with DNA evidence, Robin and her trusty investigator, Jeff Hodges, are so successful against Blaine's attorney, Doug Armstrong, that Blaine's bail gets revoked, he's convicted of the crime, and he's resting comfortably in jail when Jessica Braxton lodges her own accusation of rape against an unknown she remembers only as "Ray," and Ray's DNA turns out to be the same as Blaine's. How can the poor boy possibly have assaulted a second victim while he was locked up? The presiding judge, unable to answer this question, grants Blaine bail once more while he awaits a new trial, and he promptly takes off--very wisely in view of the criminal complications about to spring up from every corner in Multnomah County and far beyond. Doug's law partner, Frank Nylander, is beaten to death in his own office; Nylander's client Leonard Voss, who'd sued Norcross Pharmaceuticals for causing his incapacitating stroke, is murdered along with his wife; and Norcross attorney Tyler Harrison III turns up dead in a vacant lot in Manhattan. Closer to home, Margolin reveals that slimy prosecutor Rex Kellerman has embarked on his own one-man carnival of crime, from sleeping with Doug Armstrong's wife to meddling with forensic evidence. What does all this have to do with the alibi Blaine Hastings has for that second rape--an alibi so perfect that it casts serious doubt on the DNA evidence that convicted him in the first place? Not a whole lot: The connections among different felonies in this woolly tale are as loose as all those lawyers' connections to the truth.So many murders, so many plotters, so much churn that you may wonder if you accidentally picked up a collection of short stories.
