Phillip Margolin's "The Third Victim"

Phillip Margolin has written over twenty novels, most of them New York Times bestsellers, including Gone But Not Forgotten, Lost Lake, and Violent Crimes. In addition to being a novelist, he was a long time criminal defense attorney with decades of trial experience, including a large number of capital cases. Margolin lives in Portland, Oregon.

His new novel is The Third Victim.

Here Margolin dreamcasts the leads for an adaptation of The Third Victim:
There are two major characters in The Third Victim. Robin Lockwood earned part of her tuition at Yale Law School fighting in mixed martial arts tournaments, so I need a very athletic, mid-twenty-year old in the part. Alicia Vikander from Ex Machina and the new Lara Croft movie would be perfect.

The other lead is Regina Barrister, a dynamic criminal defense attorney and Robin’s idol, who is experiencing the onset of dementia in the middle of a death penalty case. Sigourney Weaver would be excellent in the role.
