Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "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"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 February #1
    In the second Robin Lockwood novel (following 2018's The Third Victim), a college athlete is convicted of rape. The conviction seems unshakable, even though the athlete strenuously denies the charge. DNA evidence doesn't lie, after all. Or does it? Lockwood, a young and relatively inexperienced Portland, Oregon, lawyer, soon learns that there is no such thing as completely indisputable evidence. Lockwood may be young (and a new series lead), but Margolin throws her into the deep end with a couple of very tricky cases (there's also a client accused of murder to deal with). Legal-thriller fans will find it satisfying to see Margolin back at the top of his game: after a slump that lasted for a few books, his writing has regained its stylistic flourishes, and his pacing is impeccable.
