A KILLER'S ALIBI by William L. Myers Jr. Blog Tour


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 sexually 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.  


"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 offtrack. A story not to be missed." ―New York Times bestselling author, William Lashner

I was blown away...A Killer's Alibi in three words: Sharp, Shocking and Intricate. ―Novel Gossip Book Review

My Review

A Killer's Alibi is the third installment in the Philadelphia Legal series which can be read as a standalone novel. I have not read the first two installments yet, since I didn't have enough time to but I look forward to diving into those two books as soon as I can.

You have two for one in this thriller...Mick McFarland hired to represent Crime Lord Jimmy Nunzio who is being charged for murder of the son of another crime lord, and Mick's wife Piper, who is trying to free Darlene Dowd who she feels was wrongly convicted of her father's murder...a dynamic dual for sure.

With an eye for detail, this story unfolds with amazing creativity and wit. It was easy to get caught up in the drama with myself wanting to slap Jimmy and yell at him to just talk, to my heart just breaking for Darlene and the horrors she had to endure. This ingenious thriller is fast paced with integrate elements. Twists...and more twists and turns, left the imagination wide open because honestly, I didn't know what to expect.  All the characters in this story felt so real in my soul....all the conversations absolute.

This was my first legal thriller to read and I am hooked.
I watch a lot of crime and law shows, why I have never picked up a legal thriller before, I have no idea. 

Thank you William Myers for sharing your imagination, and sending me the books!


William L. Myers, Jr. is the No. 6 best-selling author for Amazon Kindle in 2017 for his debut novel, A Criminal Defense. That was the first in what has become the Philadelphia Legal Series. The third book in that series, A Killers Alibi debuts February 19, 2019. 
A Killer’s Alibi has had rave early reviews including New York Times Bestselling author, Bill Lasher—

“William Myers’ riveting new novel is not just a crackerjack legal thriller, it is a wrenching portrayal of a whole range of farther-daughter relations, showing how they can damage, how they can nourish, how they go dangerously off track. A story not to be missed.”

Born in 1958 into a blue-collar family, Mr. Myers inherited a work-ethic that propelled him through college and into the Ivy League at The University of Pennsylvania School of Law. From there, Mr. Myers started his legal career in a Philadelphia-based mega defense firm. After ten years defending corporate America, he realized his heart wasn’t in it. So, with his career on the fast track to success--he gave it all up and started his own firm. It was time to start fighting for the common guy.

That was twenty-five years ago and since then, he has focused on representing railroad employees and other honest, hard-working people who have been injured by others. He has represented thousands of clients in his tenure and has become a highly-regarded litigation attorney up and down the Eastern Seaboard.
