Before “The Last Alibi” the only David Ellis novels I had read and reviewed were the ones he has co-authored with James Patterson. A man named James Drinker hires attorney Jason Kolarich to represent him. Simple enough but Drinker is not the name of the client and things get more complicated as the story unfolds to the point of Kolarcch being charged for the murder of a woman he was dating. “The Last Alibi” is an enjoyable tale of the dark side of attorneys and what they will do to win a case that is a fast paced well crafted legal thriller that will have readers turning pages to its final surprising ending.
