Caught me up with the first page. Kept me up late at night wanting to find out what would happen next. Margolin is spell bounding as he weaves a story of the many lives that a terrible crime infects. True thriller

The Third Vicitm is a very complex legal thriller, not only with an intriguing, misdirecting 'who done it' factor but with compelling problems potentially and probably facing real life lawyers and others. My son (who is a lawyer) and I actually discussed this not long ago: how do you recognize then tell someone they are failing through no fault of their own and that it is adversely affecting their work?

Obviously, this was not the prominent theme of the book, but that ribbon of narrative running through the story caused me to wonder and constantly re-evaluate who actually was the third victim: the attorney, the client, the person actually the third victim and/or numerous others and it is pivotal in the outcome of the legal case.

Well done (again) Phillip.

Sure, lots of characters and sub-plots but it was fact paced, easy read and moves along at good pace. I had a hard time putting it down. Read it in 2 days. It's my first Phillip Margolin book...but definitely NOT my last!

Be prepared to read descriptions about brutual sex and violence to females. This is a police procedural story with lawyers, lawyer's investigator's, and police detectives playing important parts in interviewing suspects and victims. Court proceedings, of course, play a featured role as witnesses, victims, and suspects testify. The story has a "She said/He said" construct with fingers being pointed at victims and suspects. It's the end result of the charges - the sentencing - that lends an immediacy to finding out how the crime was conceived, conducted, and what the end goal was. The storyline reminded me of the deceit in G Flynn's novel, "Gone Girl". After a while, my head was spinning with the many theories the author had in moving his plot forward probably wondering which would make the better solution.

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