Lawyer and author Phillip Margolin has been writing legal thrillers for more than 40 years. He is not one of my favorite legal thriller authors, but his novels consistently earn 4 stars. The plot is excellent, but the real strength of The Third Victim, released this week, is the fascinating characters. The publisher's summary for The Third Victim comes too close to giving away the plot. Narrator Therese Plummer does a good job of narration.
Margolin has had a prestigious legal career. I've read many of his legal thrillers going back to the mid-1970s when he was in his early 30s. Now in his mid-70's, he continues to write excellent if not outstanding novels.

So many good books have been written recently. Philip Margolin's Third Victim falls into the good book category.
This book has all the makings for a good mystery. The pretty protagonist who is new at her job. Put herself through college by becoming a martial arts fighter. Her boss is a renowned criminal attorney experiencing some issues that make it difficult for her to perform her job adequately. The client is a very unlikable and arrogant attorney. He claims he's innocent of horrendous murders but his third victim got away and pointed to him as her attacker.
Taught mystery with excellent narration by Therese Plummer.
