Defense attorney Jason Kolarich is back in another edge-of-your seat thriller...and this time he may find himself in over his head, in more ways than one.
James Drinker is a bit of an oddball. A funny-looking, geeky loner, he walks into Jason Kolarich’s office one day with a preemptive concern: two women have recently been murdered, seemingly by the same killer, and Drinker thinks he will be the police’s main suspect. One woman was his ex-girlfriend, he says, and the other was a friend. He’s the only link between the victims and he has no alibi for the night of either murder - surely the police will realize it soon. Believing he’s the target of a frame-up, Drinker hires Kolarich for his defense.
Something about James Drinker seems off from the start, but Kolarich doesn’t give it too much thought. Until another murder occurs. And then another. And as he begins to probe his client’s life and story more closely, it quickly becomes clear that nothing about James Drinker is what it seems...and that the target of the frame-up isn’t Drinker, but Kolarich.
Unable to stop a serial killer - and prove his own innocence - without breaking his sworn attorney-client privilege, Jason Kolarich must hunt for the truth about James Drinker, the series of brutal murders, and why he’s been set up to take the fall. The answers will be beyond anything he could have imagined.

David Ellis' story
Yes. I didn't find myself anticipating as many elements as I usually do after over 600 Audible titles and thousands of books before those.
Usually I like Luke Daniels just fine. His ONLY, but HUGE, error in this book was Joel Lightner's voice. I have read or heard all of David Ellis' books. I think he would agree and Luke is in danger of becoming a joke like Scott Brick if he keeps doing that. And Tanya Eby just wasn't needed for this book. She wasn't horrible...except every time she did a male voice. It was also a distraction to hear the same character voiced by 2 readers.
Oh, not really...it was just a really good story.
Yes. Story of true friendship, love, coverups, wrong conclusions, twisting fate to save a friend.
Hold tight if you believe you know who done it and why think again the ending will have you thinking.
David Ellis when is book 5? Wait to see what will happen to Jason !
I am disappointed in this series! It's a jumbled mess. Jason is inconsistent in his beliefs, actions, temperament....everything! It feels like 4 books written by the same guy about different guys that happened to be a lawyer at the same firm. Then after they were written the names were changed to Jason and the background shoved down the readers throat. Did I mention a million and one times that his wife and baby daughter were killed in a car accident? Insulting to the intelligence of the reader that its bashed over our head every 15 pages.
All of the other characters are consistent and I fell like I know and care about those people more than Jason.
So very disappointed
I have found a new author ! David Ellis is a great writer and The Last Alibi is fantastic! The Jason Kolarich series is wonderful. The characters and performances are excellent. This is one of my favorite books...ever. I highly recommend this author and this series.
Appropriate Narration! Some narrators can convincingly narrate both male & female voices, Dick Hill & Scott Brick are good examples. Luke Daniels can do it, he even does a great job narrating Oberand's (a Dog) in the Iron Druid series.Some of David Baldacci's books are examples of narration done right: a Male does the "male role" & a female performs the "female role". Whoever made the decision to narrate this book needs to apologize to Luke Daniels, Audible listeners, David Ellis, then resign & seek employment at Wal-Mart!
Used a single Narrator or let each Narrator read their respective "voices". Tanya Eby's attempt to narrate Jason's voice (or any other male voice) was so pathetic, I couldn't even stand to listen to the entire book!
Luke Daniels is an excellent Narrator & I have always enjoyed Audible books he has narrated. Tanya Eby does okay with the "female voice", but she absolutely cannot do male voices!
I really don't know, it might have if I could been able to listen to it!
This book was in my Wish List and was given to me as a Gift from my daughter, but Audible's policy is that I cannot return it for a credit. So, my daughter just wasted a credit! I don't get it, why can't I just return it and get a credit for book that I would enjoy?
Audible, I hope you are reading this, you have a Customer Service policy that will alienate at least 2 customers at once:both the gift giver & recipient. I am a very long-term customer but I'm likely to cancel my membership and look elsewhere for my audio books!
I love the complexity of the Jason Kolarich series and Luke Daniels is a great reader.
Retired Political Science professor from a community college. Especially like Legal Thrillers.
Although I enjoyed the book, I found it difficult to follow during the first half. The author keeps jumping from the present to the past in ways that I found confusing. I have enjoyed some of the author's earlier books much more. The last third of the book was very well done.
Not so much time spent on the main character's sexual relationships. More time spent on the investigation and trial.
I would have preferred one, rather than two, narrators. Still, each did an acceptable job.
