"Narrator Therese Plummer delivers a stellar reading of Margolin's latest thriller...Her vocal skills capably supplement Margolin's fast-paced story in this riveting production." — AudioFile Magazine

The “master of heart-pounding suspense” returns with a brand new audiobook series — The Third Victim is New York Times bestseller Phillip Margolin at his very best.

A woman stumbles onto a dark road in rural Oregon—tortured, battered, and bound. She tells a horrific story about being kidnapped, then tortured, until she finally managed to escape. She was the lucky one—two other women, with similar burns and bruises, were found dead.

The surviving victim identifies the house where she was held captive and the owner, Alex Mason—a prominent local attorney—is arrested. Although he loudly insists upon his innocence, his wife’s statements about his sexual sadism and the physical evidence found at the scene, his summer home, is damning.

Regina Barrister is a legendary criminal defense attorney, known as “The Sorceress” for her courtroom victories. But she’s got a secret, one that threatens her skill, her reputation, and, most of all, her clients. And she’s agreed to take on the seemingly impossible task of defending Alex Mason.

Robin Lockwood, a young lawyer and former MMA fighter, has just left a clerkship at the Oregon Supreme Court to work for Regina Barrister. The Alex Mason trial is her first big one, a likely death penalty case, and she’s second chair to Regina. Increasingly, she’s worried her boss’s behavior and the details in the case against their client don’t quite add up.

    " The Third Victim by Phillip Margolin is a standalone book and the 13th book I’ve read by the author. The action starts in the early pages, and I thought the reader was being exposed to the crime info early on and the remainder of the book would be the “trial” portion of the story – BOY was I wrong! Just when I was convinced I thought I knew who the bad guy was, the author tosses in numerous twist and turns, and offers up several potential options for who actually committed the crime and why. The story held my attention, has several likable as well as dislikeable characters. The book is filled with crime, deceit, courtroom drama, tension, and friendship. The story is complete, with no cliffhangers or dangling storylines. I wish to extend my thanks to the author, St. Martin's Press/Minotaur Books, and Netgalley for an advanced readers copy in exchange for an honest review. The publication date for the book was March 6th, 2018 – the book is available in multiple formats. For me, this was a 3.75-star read which I will raise to 4 stars. "
