A Killer’s Alibi + Giveaway

About A Killer’s Alibi

Series: Philadelphia Legal

Paperback: 430 pages

Publisher: Thomas & Mercer (February 19, 2019)

For attorney Mick McFarland, the evidence is damning. And so are the family secrets in this twisty legal thriller from the Amazon Charts bestselling author of A Criminal Defense.

When crime lord Jimmy Nunzio is caught, knife in hand, over the body of his daughter’s lover and his own archenemy, he turns to Mick McFarland to take up his defense. Usually the courtroom puppeteer, McFarland quickly finds himself at the end of Nunzio’s strings. Struggling to find grounds for a not-guilty verdict on behalf of a well-known killer, Mick is hamstrung by Nunzio’s refusal to tell him what really happened.

On the other side of the law, Mick’s wife, Piper, is working to free Darlene Dowd, a young woman sentenced to life in prison for her abusive father’s violent death. But the jury that convicted Darlene heard only part of the truth, and Piper will do anything to reveal the rest and prove Darlene’s innocence.

As Mick finds himself in the middle of a mob war, Piper delves deeper into Darlene’s past. Both will discover dark secrets that link these fathers and daughters—some that protect, some that destroy, and some that can’t stay hidden forever. No matter the risk.

My Review

I liked this book. The alternating storylines at first kind of was distracting. At first there was Mick's case and than the case that his wife, Piper was working on. I did not really make the connection at first that the story changed between the two cases and therefore, I was trying to figure out the connection between the cases. In fact, I thought that Mick's wife was helping him in the beginning. This is partly my bad but at the same time it showed that the transition to the two storylines was not as smooth. Yet, the further that I got into the book, the clearer the dual storylines got.

I was drawn more towards Piper's case. The main character, Darlene was more relatable. Plus, I really felt for her and her story. So for me the overall story was a bit more one sided. Yet, I thought that Mick; himself was good. He showed his intelligence. Together, I thought that Mick and Piper worked well with each other. They fed off one another's energy.

While, I might not have "loved" this book, I would read another one by this author. I may even go back and start with book one in this series.

The cover is what drew me in! I like it when I'm kind of tricked by the clues. It keeps me thinking! Dianna (dedezoomsalot at yahoo dot com)
Thank you for your review! I too can find dual POV novels distracting at times, depending on how it's done. But this still sounds like a good read. mbradeen [at] yahoo [dot] com
