Defense attorney David Nash has made a career out of setting monsters free - and no one does it better. Now a case has come to "the Ice Man" that could help cleanse Nash of the guilt and doubts that torment him: that rarest of all defendants, an innocent man. A family man, a rising star in the legal profession, this new client has been accused of a heinous crime - the brutal murder of an undercover vice cop. But the case that is supposed to be Nash's redemption could prove to be his downfall, dragging him into a dark and sinister world where lies and the truth are interchangeable; where the manipulator becomes the manipulated, and every answer spawns more complex and terrifying questions. And as the shadows close in around him, the final question that remains for David Nash concerns his own fate: life . . . or death? "Beautifully constructed . . . tightly written, a pleasant mixture of brutality and humanity, with a humdinger of a solution." Contra Costa Times "Margolin is the master." Pittsburgh Tribune Review

Professional reviews

"Though it was written more than 20 years ago, THE LAST INNOCENT MAN still maintains its vitality. It's a bit of a slow starter, but once it gets going, the listener becomes entranced with the multiple issues presented. Christopher Lane's narration gets one through the talky prose, and his character depictions are versatile. Among others, Lane plays defense attorney David Nash, who is at the pinnacle of his career. He's called upon to defend a civil attorney for the rape and murder of a policewoman, who at the time of her death was posing as a prostitute. Lane excels at several characters, in particular a sardonic guilty ex-client, for whom Nash won an acquittal, and a rough-around-the-edges private eye. The ending leaves most issues resolved and the listener satisfied. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
