Description

Defense attorney Doug Weaver believes his client, Jacob Cohen, is innocent—but the forensic evidence proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the meek, mentally ill homeless man killed and dismembered a woman . . .

Hired to defend gangster Art Prochaska against charges that he murdered an informer, lawyer Amanda Jaffe and her father, Frank, have their work cut out for them—because, as improbable as it seems, the forensic clues scream that Prochaska is guilty . . .

And now people are dying inexplicably—as Amanda and Doug join forces to find answers hidden somewhere in the darkest corners of crime scene investigation, where a god-playing madman holds the lethal power to alter the truth.

        May 1, 2006
        In bestseller Margolin's third legal thriller featuring feisty defense lawyer Amanda Jaffe (after 2003's Wild Justice
        ), respected forensic expert Bernard Cashman, who works for the Oregon State Crime Laboratory, has developed a personal philosophy that allows him to manufacture evidence to ensure the successful prosecution of those he feels are guilty, especially if crucial evidence is missing. He's not a madman, just absolutely sure that he knows more than judge, jury and the legal system when it comes to administering justice. After a fellow crime lab employee approaches him about discrepancies in his work, he adds murder to his list of methods that ensure his continuing crusade. Amanda is still working in her father's law firm and still having trouble with her love life, though Margolin wisely steers clear of wasting much time on her personal problems. The author deftly manages a large cast of characters and ties the many plot lines together with enough clever twists to satisfy faithful fans and newcomers. 6-city author tour.

        July 15, 2006
        Criminal defense attorney Amanda Jaffe, heroine of Margolin's Wild Justice and Ties That Bind, has her work cut out for her in this outing. Lawyer Doug Weaver is suffering from nightmares after witnessing the execution of a client whom he had advised to plead guilty to matricide in the erroneous hope of avoiding the death penalty. A mobster is accused of murdering a drug addict after his fingerprints are found at the scene of the crime. A deranged homeless man is charged with committing a ghastly murder when the victim's blood is found on his clothes. The forensic evidence against all three men is overwhelmingunless it is being manufactured. Enter Jaffe, who gets some help from her father, Weaver, and a private forensic scientist. Forensic science is hot, and Margolin brings it to the forefront in this gruesome and frightening legal thriller Recommended for all public libraries.
