The Perfect Alibi by Phillip Margolin

The Perfect Alibi by Phillip Margolin
(Robin Lockwood #2)
Thérèse Plummer (Narrator)
Audiobook - Duration: 07:06:56
Published March 5th, 2019 by Macmillan Audio

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.

My thoughts…

The Perfect Alibi by Phillip Margolin is the second book of the legal thriller Robin Lockwood series. Robin Lockwood, former MMA fighter, is now a partner in the law firm, Barrister, Berman & Lockwood.

When a young college student accuses a football player, Blaine, of rape, the DNA test is irrefutable, and he is imprisoned. Robin is hired to represent the young woman in the civil suit against Blaine. When another woman is raped, and the DNA matches Blaine things become perplexing. At the time of the second rape, Blaine is imprisoned. He doesn’t have an identical twin; he can’t be in two places at once, everything is questioned.

Meanwhile, several attorneys are being murdered. This is where things got complicated.

The Perfect Alibi was another great addition to this series from Phillip Margolin. The series is rather fast paced as it follows along from the beginning of a case, the investigation and court room appearances which held my interest. But the complicated storylines were a bit of a problem for me with this mystery. There are so many characters and storylines that I found myself re-winding the narration just to keep everything straight! Though this novel is part of a series with the same primary character, it reads as a standalone. I will definitely be looking forward to more to come in this thrilling legal series.
