A Matter of Life and Death

Summary: Joe Lattimore, homeless and trying desperately to provide for his young family, agrees to fight in a no-holds illegal bar bout, only to have his opponent die. Lattimore now finds himself at the mercy of the fight’s organizers who blackmail him into burglarizing a house. However, when he breaks in, he finds a murdered woman on the floor and the police have received an anonymous tip naming him for the crime.

Robin Lockwood, an increasingly prominent young attorney and former MMA fighter, agrees to take on his defense. But the case is seemingly airtight—the murdered woman’s husband, Judge Anthony Carasco, has an alibi and Lattimore’s fingerprints are discovered at the scene. But everything about the case is too easy, too pat, and Lockwood is convinced that her client has been framed. The only problem is that she has no way of proving it and since this is a death case, if she fails then another innocent will die.

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I have been a big fan of the Robin Lockwood series since I started reading it ( The Third Victim, The Perfect Alibi, and A Reasonable Doubt).  So when I saw this book on Netgalley, I knew I had to have it. And it def continues my enjoyment of the Robin Lockwood series!


What I Liked:

The cover!

How Phillip Margolin has all these secrets and double crossing and things may not make sense as to how they will relate- but then he pulls it all together and it’s good!

The ending. I just love how the book comes together.


Bottom line: Another winner for me. The only sad thing is that I have to wait for another book!!
