A great mystery, some court drama, and I thought the part about Alzheimer's was most interesting.

A great read, as always, from Phillip Margolin.

Philiip Margolin writes great novels mixing crimes and legal issues . THE THIRD VICTIM is another fun read in this same vein. The story is interesting and engaging and a quick read. One unexpected, interesting, and realistic twist is a subtext dealing with the problem of when a highly successful person (a lawyer in this case) suddenly begins 'losing a step' and how that person deals with it (or not), and how those who are friends and co-workers deal with it. This is probably more common in life than we think, and in my experience it is unusual to find adventure/crime novels dealing with it. A courageous addition and I was impressed with how he handled it. Good, fun read overall.

Quick read - interesting story that includes dementia and a murder investigation and trial. Quite an interesting twist at the end of this book. Bet you won't see it coming!

When I read the comments by the pros I was reluctant to read this book. I have enjoyed all his other books so decided to give it a try. It was so good I wanted to read it in one sitting. Hopefully this is the beginning of a fresh new series.

I read an early release copy of this title. It kept my interest and moved quickly. I finished it in 2 days. A lot of sexual content for me personally, however, it was an interesting read and i enjoyed it. great look at dementia and at victims of violent crimes. Interesting twist at the end.
