Suspense | Thriller Legal
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 rapesâ€”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 chargeâ€”one that should be dismissed as
self-defenseâ€”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
Phillip Margolin, the master of the legal thriller, returns
in one of his twistiest, most compelling crime novels yet.
