Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Phillip Margolin returns with a shocking and enthralling thriller about the way CSI evidence can be misused by a killer with his own twisted sense of justice.

Doug Weaver is a defense attorney who believes the best of his clients, and Jacob Cohen, on trial for murder, is no exception. Yet Bernard Cashman, a forensic expert at the Oregon State Crime Lab, finds evidence that indisputably connects Cohen with the crime.

Frustrated and confused, Doug consults Amanda Jaffe, star of Margolin's spine-tingler Wild Justice. Amanda and her father, Frank, are working on a case that seems completely unrelated: gangster Art Prochaska is accused of murdering an informer. When Amanda starts looking too closely at the seemingly air-tight evidence in these two apparently unconnected cases, people start to die — and she discovers that a madman with the power to alter the truth is on the loose.

Review:

"Margolin definitely retains his reputation as one of the best courtroom drama authors of all time." Library Journal

Review:

"Margolin is never going to be a poster boy for stylish prose, but this is a briskly paced, cleverly plotted, long-overdue switch on all those heroic forensics guys." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

Defense attorney Amanda Jaffe is representing an insane derelict charged with a hideous murder who claims he's being framed. Is it possible that a CSI technician would misuse his position? Amanda discovers that a madman with the power to alter the truth is on the loose. Available in a tall Premium Edition.
