is my first Phillip Margolin novel Filled with twists, turns and intrigue, I was curious to how the subplots may or may not connect At times I had trouble keeping Robin s different cases, suspects, police and attorneys separate I had to stop to think who attached to what case.Detectives and DNA lab experts explained that only identical twins have the same DNA, although as a TV procedural veteran, I ve seen at least two episodes on CSI and LawOrder SVU where identical DNA was found in unrelated people when one had donated bone marrow to another I m easily distracted by details.The multiple payoffs in THE PERFECT ALIBI make this a must read mystery flag 5 likesLike see review Dec 17, 2018 Anne rated it liked it I ve always liked Margolin s books but I think since I ve read so

much going on, it felt fractured and scattered I didn t feel it was cohesive while I was reading it It all came together and everything was resolved beautifully at the end, but I wasn t anchored while reading it I like the flow to flow, and the reason I requested this book wasn t that prominent of a storyline I think the blurb in the back should have stated something differently This was basically a book about a lawyer in an up and coming law firm with multiple different cases on her desk, some intersecting, with a pretty nice twist at the end that was somewhat surprising flag 2 likesLike see

Do I recommend it Yes TBH my life got turned upside down last month, so it perhaps isn t fair to judge right now, but it isn t like I am NOT recommending it or anything, so I HATE spoilers, so I ll must give the basic outline Robin Lockwood, the young attorney we met in Margolin s The Third Victim is back, with an interesting case, as she is hired by a young woman who is accusing a prominent as in wealthy family, famous star on a big deal team local college athlete of rape There is DNA evidence, the athlete is convicted, and he swears he didn t do it, and threatens both his lawyer and his accuser as he s sent off to prison Then, there s another rape and hold on here the DNA in this case matches the DNA that convicted the athlete Since he was in prison at the time of the second rape, he gets a new lawyer, a new trial, and bail Right after that, his first lawyer who he blamed for his conviction in the first trial disappears and the first lawyer s law partner is murdered.There s another story going on, and Robin is busy both professionally and personally which I often don t like, when protagonist get involved with their co workers, but this time it works Margolin s many years of legal experience shine once again, as he makes the investigation, courtroom, and legal wrangling both interesting and entertaining I m going with 4 stars on this one, but he is still one of my very favorites in the legal thriller genre flag Like see review Jan 31, 2019 Mindy rated it liked it Disclaimer I received a free electronic ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I thought

does not have an identical twin, that suspense mystery only lasts so long While this was the main case that starts the story, it kind of gets drowned out by the other cases that Robin gets involved in It was able to hold my attention, as bits of the case gets revealed throughout the story, but in turn, it causes a ripple effect Other secrets get revealed, people get killed and my attention slowly begins to fade, but it luckily lasts long enough till the end Overall, reading this felt like a stream of Law Order episodes happening back to back with a sprinkle of personal struggles from the MCs popping up here and there Not bad, but it would have been better if the sole focus of the book was on one case rather than a bunch of cases which widens the cast of characters, which is a bit confusing overwhelming at times because it made the plot too busy and caused my focus to crumble I can t really say much about the book without revealing any spoilers since it is a mystery, but perhaps it would be worth your time if you re into Law Order or mystery thrillers flag Like see review Dec 20, 2018 Misty Reds Romance Reviews rated it really liked it Being a former MMA fighter Robin

by Phillip Margolin In the second book featuring the protagonist, ex MMA fighter lawyer, Robin Lockwood who first appeared in The Third Victim by the same author , the central plot is hinged on the logic that a person cannot be in two places at the same time.Justice has to prove that a rapist, convicted based on his DNA found on the victim, committed another rape, again based on DNA, while being locked up in jail With several other impossible cases batted around, intertwined with Lockwood s personal life, this is quite a busy novel, which at times makes the reader lose the thread.The author, however, masterfully carves each piece of the puzzle to fit in nicely Review based on an advance reading copy provided by NetGalley, Macmillan Publishers and St Martin s Press flag Like see review Dec

    4. I ve always liked Margolin s books but I think since I ve read so many thrillers lately, this one although satisfying was not as suspenseful as others It involves an interesting rape case and a competent attorney, Robin Lockwood Lots of characters and I got a little lost as to how they all connected until the end, but ultimately I enjoyed the story as well as the writing Thanks to NetGalley for this ARC

I recvd this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review I wanted to like this book than I did, mostly because the blurb intrigued me, a rich guy rapes a girl and ends up in jail, only to have his DNA show up in a rape while he s in there. sounded good, something that maybe could lead to me not predicting the outcome, what I got though, was this was actually a sort of mini case in a bunch of other cases A lawyer with several cases and a few of them overlap It was intriguing e I recvd t [...]


    7. I gravitated toward this book because the synopsis intrigued me I especially enjoyed the female characters in the storyline Most of the men, however, were not likable and about 55% of the way through the book there was just too much corruption to the story Many cases were being prosecuted and storylines interweaving which is usually fine when I read , but there seemed to be a lack of cohesiveness in the stories, and the middle of the book felt heavy and clunky The story started to pick up a I gr [...]
