Publisher's Summary

Defense attorney Jason Kolarich is back in another edge-of-your seat thriller...and this time he may find himself in over his head, in more ways than one.
James Drinker is a bit of an oddball. A funny-looking, geeky loner, he walks into Jason Kolarich’s office one day with a preemptive concern: two women have recently been murdered, seemingly by the same killer, and Drinker thinks he will be the police’s main suspect. One woman was his ex-girlfriend, he says, and the other was a friend. He’s the only link between the victims and he has no alibi for the night of either murder - surely the police will realize it soon. Believing he’s the target of a frame-up, Drinker hires Kolarich for his defense.
Something about James Drinker seems off from the start, but Kolarich doesn’t give it too much thought. Until another murder occurs. And then another. And as he begins to probe his client’s life and story more closely, it quickly becomes clear that nothing about James Drinker is what it seems...and that the target of the frame-up isn’t Drinker, but Kolarich.
Unable to stop a serial killer - and prove his own innocence - without breaking his sworn attorney-client privilege, Jason Kolarich must hunt for the truth about James Drinker, the series of brutal murders, and why he’s been set up to take the fall. The answers will be beyond anything he could have imagined.

Disappointed

I am disappointed in this series! It's a jumbled mess. Jason is inconsistent in his beliefs, actions, temperament....everything! It feels like 4 books written by the same guy about different guys that happened to be a lawyer at the same firm. Then after they were written the names were changed to Jason and the background shoved down the readers throat. Did I mention a million and one times that his wife and baby daughter were killed in a car accident? Insulting to the intelligence of the reader that its bashed over our head every 15 pages.
All of the other characters are consistent and I fell like I know and care about those people more than Jason.

So very disappointed

Good but might be better on paper.

What made the experience of listening to The Last Alibi the most enjoyable?

David Ellis' story


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. I didn't find myself anticipating as many elements as I usually do after over 600 Audible titles and thousands of books before those.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Usually I like Luke Daniels just fine. His ONLY, but HUGE, error in this book was Joel Lightner's voice. I have read or heard all of David Ellis' books. I think he would agree and Luke is in danger of becoming a joke like Scott Brick if he keeps doing that. And Tanya Eby just wasn't needed for this book. She wasn't horrible...except every time she did a male voice. It was also a distraction to hear the same character voiced by 2 readers.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Oh, not really...it was just a really good story.
