A Killer's Alibi - TLC Book Tours

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis:  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.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: A Killer's Alibi is the first book I read by William L Myers, Jr. and I really enjoyed it.  It reminded me of Sydney Sheldon (I loved his books) with a twist of Lisa Scottoline and early days of John Grisham.  Mob/mafia thrillers are always exciting to me.  

I really liked the characters in A Killer's Alibi.  They all worked together and complimented each other.  The spunk of Gabby, Mick and Pipers daughter, added some sassiness to the book.

There were two main stories: defending the crime lord Nunzio and re-opening an old case to free an innocent women.  There are so many zigs and zags in the book as both stories unfolded.  There were several times I thought I had figured out the "who dun' it" in both stories; however, I wasn't even close.  A Killer's Alibi kept me on my toes from the start all the way to the end.  I hope there is a book 4 in the works.

If you are looking for a fast pace, thriller, lawyer/legal system, type of book, you really should check out A Killer's Alibi.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I had no idea A Killer's Alibi is actual the third book by Myers.  It is 100% a stand alone book, but I MUST read the first two: A Criminal Defense and An Engineered Injustice
