  • A Reasonable Doubt

    very interesting story and just enough suspense. While some legal thrillers lose credibility this one stayed credible

  • An entertaining read

    I received a free electronic ARC of this modern legal mystery/police procedural on February 22, 2020, from Netgalley, Phillip Margolin, and Minotaur Books. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this novel of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. If you love Oregon or don't know anything at all about it, you will love it by tales end. Phillip Margolin tours us through the best parts of Portland with warm descriptive passages that make you need to visit. Robin Lockwood had been the first girl in her state to place in a boy's high school wrestling championship and competed in her university fielded top NCAA Division I squad, she is an exercise guru and runner, and a top of her class legal master. You just have to root for her throughout this tale of woe. A Reasonable Doubt is the third in Phillip Margolin's Robin Lockwood legal thrillers. If you enjoy mysteries surrounding magicians, this book is for you. Robin has an intense and thorough legal mind and has been added to the firm of Portland, Oregon lawyers in the firm that originally included Regina Barrister, now retired. In March of 2017, British citizen Roger Chesterfield approaches the firm looking for Regina, to handle a 'little problem'. Regina had been able to help him out of another little problem years ago and he remembered her fondly. Finding her retired, he pays a retainer to the firm of Barrister, Berman & Lockwood to assist him in obtaining a Copywrite for his latest magic act, The Chamber of Death, before he began using it in his Las Vegas act. Oh, and he might be needing a 'top-flight criminal attorney very soon. Robin accepts a retainer on the copyright problem but does not commit the firm to any criminal work until she has some facts. Which was a good thing - everybody and his Uncle are after Roger Chesterfield, from Las Vegas mob boss and his debt collectors, ex-wives, and most of the magicians you can bring to mind. Currently, he is suspected by Westmont Country Club of cheating at cards, making passes at most of the staff and some of the wives, and expecting his current wife to foot all his bills. Jane Dowd is loved and respected by everyone who knew her and her super-wealthy deceased first husband, and the club is not slow in circling round to protect Lily. Unfortunately Lily cannot see through the charm, and the couple withdrew their participation in the Country Club, removing Lily from her circle of supporters. And Regina, though much is fuzzy in her current memory, remembers that the case she had covered for Roger - two murders in 1997-1998 - he slipped out of serving time for due to a technicality. Her advice to Robin - don't trust Roger Chesterfield. And then new murders start turning up, including one at the Westmont Country Club. Portland Police detectives Martin Quinlan and Roger Dillon are excellent in their coverage of these new murders and a couple of older ones, but brash Peter Ragland, the spoiled son of an old well-loved DA, manages to give the cases away through shoddy work. But then there are more dead bodies...

  • A Reasonable Doubt

    Pretty good but deffinitely not one of his best. A bit far fetched to me.

  • A REASONABLE DOUBT

    That was a very entertaining story. Very enjoyable except there were too many parts of the story that were duplicated. Spoiled a good story.
