Review of THE THIRD VICTIM by Phillip Margolin

To be honest, I am a fan of Phillip Margolin, but especially his books that have twists and turns and lots of red herrings. This is it! This book has a lot of characters and many are potential suspects. When the book begins, two women are dead and one has escaped alive. But there is someone lurking, ready to take another victim. Oregon police think that they have arrested the perpetrator when they take lawyer Alex Mason into custody. But is he really the criminal? There are others still out there, and the women of the city may not be safe yet. Mason hires renowned criminal attorney Regina Barrister. In turn, Regina has hired a bright new intern, Robin Lockwood. Robin suspects that Regina is beginning to suffer from dementia. Will this affect her ability to defend Mason? The entire book is a series of twists and turns and so. much action that it is a great, gripping read. Only Margolin can lead the reader down a primrose path straight into the arms of a killer that no one suspects!
