"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"--… (meer)

I actually read this almost exactly four years ago --- frustrating that I didn't remember it but also because my library's internet connections don't always work well enough so that I wind up picking out a book I've already read. YES, aren't there enough books in the library so that should never happen??? Note to self: ALWAYS check when I get home again where LibaryThing WORKS!

However, why not reread something that was good the first time? Too bad about the ol' brain. ( )

Morgolin has several subplots going, but the two driving the story were relatively transparent. It doens't take a huge crime/detective fan to unravel his story, almost from the beginning. It was readable, but once you think you have it figured out, you have it figured out. ( )

I decided to give this one a second chance. I actually was really enjoying the beginning of this one. However; it started to follow too many characters and too many storylines. It was almost too much going on all at the same time. When listening on audio, it was hard to keep track of who was who.

I wish it would have stayed to the initial trial and characters. ( )

A great follow-up to The Third Victim, the first book in the series. Again the characters are likable and you want them to be innocent and likable, but there’s always the bad one in the bunch. The DNA twist was differently done.
Again I did not guess the “who”until almost the end of the book.

A good read. Similar to the 1st book in the series. ( )
