PHILADELPHIA (February 2019). Number 1 bestselling author and Philadelphia attorney William L. Myers Jr, is set to release the third novel in his best-selling Philadelphia Legal Series. The novel, A Killer’s Alibi, published by Thomas & Mercer, will debut February 14, 2019. The first book in the series, A Criminal Defense debuted at No. 1 on Amazon and went on to become the No. 6 best-selling Kindle book of 2017.
A Killer’s Alibi features Philly crime lord Jimmy Nunzio caught, knife in hand, over the body of his daughter’s lover. Nunzio prevails upon former Philadelphia prosecutor turned defense attorney Mick McFarland to take up his defense.
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 killing her abusive father. 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.
Says New York Times bestselling author Bill Lasher: “William Myers’ riveting new novel is not just a crackerjack legal thriller, it is also a wrenching portrayal of a whole range of father daughter relationships, showing how they can damage, how they nourish, how they go dangerously off track. A story not to be missed.”
