The Third Victim: A Novel

We rated this book:


Brutally tortured, a young woman miraculously escapes her captor. Unable to identify her kidnapper, she manages to identify where she was held tied up and brutalized – the cabin of ruthless, egotistical attorney Alex Mason. As a new attorney, Robin Lockwood is now working for “The Sorceress” of the courtroom, Regina Barrister, who is legendary in legal circles as being the best criminal defense lawyer money can buy. But Robin has her doubts about her new employer when it appears that Regina is hiding something that could impact her client as well as other seemingly unrelated cases. As compelling evidence mounts and more victims are discovered, it looks like Regina and Robin will lose in the courtroom and Mason will face the death penalty.

With over 30 novels and short stories, Phillip Margolin’s latest legal thriller, The Third Victim promises twists and surprises that turn out to be predictable. The storyline offers the usual lawyer’s race to find the truth before someone innocent goes to jail. The characters are likeable but could have used more development. The Third Victim is a quick beach read for summer vacation.
