review 1: This was a difficult book to rate because I loved it and hated it. Lawyers have a bad reputation and one of the main characters in this book, Charles Benedict - a lawyer, perpetuates that stereotype. I almost put the book down because he's underhanded, mean, savage, and uses tr...

review 1: Although at one point I thought this story was very similar to Margolin's previous stories, I realized it really was the basic formula that was familiar as opposed to the story itself. Still I enjoyed the book and reconnecting with Dana, Brad & Ginny while seeing how Margolin pla...

review 1: Over the years I've read a number of Margolin's books, and I either like them a lot or I don't. This falls in the latter group. I enjoyed the historical detail, the fact that it's based on a real case, but the dialog was so unrealistic and stilted that it threw me out of the stor...

review 1: The plot moves quickly enough, and the local settings feel genuine (even though there's no back door at the Peet's on Washington at Broadway; both doors are near windows that wouldn't provide a secretive meeting spot).The characters and scheming, however, are either over-the-top ...

review 1: Margolin takes the reader back into the newly created State of Oregon in 1860, where slavery has been abolished, but the sentiments are still high among Americans. Matthew Penny, a young lawyer, is commissioned to assist in the meagre defence of a man accused of stealing money fr...

review 1: Powerful people disregarding the law and twisting it to justify their actions was a theme throughout this book. Crooked judges, lawyers, wealthy businessmen and even the prostitute rewrote the script when necessary. The grief that a young lawyer felt from the loss of a loved one...

review 1: The story transpires over 15 years and involves multiple murders. I enjoyed reading in the acknowledgments how Margolin came up with the story since I used to live on St. Simons Island, GA. The murders have an interesting connection. However, I think the young novelist is an unne...
