For example, we learn on page 160 that local mafia hitman Ed Gordon is an ex-marine who had been dishonorably discharged for assaulting an officer. How can you combine doctors, lawyers, local mafia, serial killers, abusive spouses, and harvested organs on the black market, into a psychological thriller set in the beautiful pacific northwest, and not succeed? I'll tell you how! Read Wild Justice.

It's her only contact with us. Mike might be right, McCarthy said. If we send the men in now, we blow it, DeVore cautioned. If we don't and something happens to Amanda, I. Hold it, the tech interrupted. They're in the basement. I can hear them going down the stairs. Send the men in, now, McCarthy yelled, ripping off his headset.

Seven years ago, Phillip Margolin seized the imagination of thriller readers everywhere with his chilling breakout bestseller, Gone, but Not Forgotten.

Thursday: Subject is still combative after four days of applied pain, sleep deprivation and minimal food.

Vice squad detective Bobby Vasquez, for months on the trail of a slippery underworld figure, receives an anonymous tip that directs him to a mountain cabin. He races through the idyllic Oregon woods, expecting to close the book on a long-standing vendetta. What he finds instead opens a Pandora's box of horror that will haunt him to his dying day.

8:10: Subject bound and gaffed and placed in upstairs closet at end of hall. Turned out lights in house, drove off, then parked and doubled back. Watched from woods.

Within hours, Vincent Cordoni -- a brilliant surgeon with a history of violence and drug abuse -- is arrested for a heinous crime. Facing a seemingly insurmountable wall of evidence, he turns to Portland's top criminal defense attorney, Frank Jaffe-who, along with his ambitious daughter, Amanda, must put on an inspired defense. Amanda's first taste of criminal defense work is as intoxicating as it is chilling, but it raises moral questions she's loath to address. Is she defending an innocent man? Or is she using her considerable skills to set a monster free? Then Cardoni disappears under bizarre circumstances. Four years later, a second set of murders has begun ....

8:55: Subject exits house, naked and barefoot, armed with kitchen knife. Remarkable strength of character. Breaking her will be a challenge.

Has Cardoni resurfaced to ply his deadly trade anew? Is there a copycat killer? Or has the real killer been someone else all along? The police will do everything they can to stop Cardoni -- but they have to find him first.

Following a twisting trail of clues, including a harrowing diary that clinically records the killer's horrible deeds, Amanda Jaffe and Bobby Vasquez join the hunt-and themselves become targets of the twenty-first century's first genuinely monstrous psychopath.

Wild Justice is the first appearance of Amanda Jaffe, a criminal defense attorney in Portland trying to emerge from the shadow of her father. The two are hired to defend Vincent Cardoni, a surgeon accused of torturing and murdering nine people in the woods of Oregon. He claims his wife framed him, and on a technicality, he is released. Soon after, he mysteriously disappears. Fast forward four years, and Amanda is wiser and more experienced but still trying to develop her own identity as a criminal defense attorney. More bodies show up that resemble the same MO as the murders four years ago, but this time, it's Cardoni's wife that is on the hot seat. But who's really guilty?

I recently finished the branches of government trilogy, and this was a bit of a disappointment in comparison. Jaffe's character is shallow and a bit of a cliche. After four years as a defense attorney in a major city, it would stand to reason she would be a bit hardened and more jaded, but that never really comes across. Her character remains flat. It's an interesting premise - did the coked out doctor with the anger issue do it? Was it his ice queen wife? Was it a host of of husbands she's left dead in her wake? Was it the boyfriend? I figured out in the first quarter of the book who did it. If you think back to your junior high lessons on foreshadowing, you'll figure it out too. That took something away from it for me. I like books that keep me guessing until the very end. Margolin still manages to write a good story with a decent pace, so it's worth a read.

"Wild Justice", by Phillip Margolin, is my third read by him and I'm fascinated by his stories. He weaves a tangled web of characters and sub-plots around his main plot that is mind-boggling and keeps you guessing the outcome right to the end. This book had me suspecting who the bad guy was in this story, but I was never sure until the evidence stacked up against him. Few books I've read make me read continually to get to the end so I can learn the resolution--Margolin's does. When I finish with a book of his I can't wait to start another of his books. "Wild Justice" is a violent story and not for the tame-hearted, but for those who like police stories, court room drama, murder mysteries and thrillers, then this is a book you will find extraordinarily captivating.

I was very pleased with this book. I had read the latest Amanda Jaffe book, but this one starts at the beginning of her career when a few mistakes were made, but due only to inexperience. A good family dynamic was also established between her and her father. Most of all, the twists and turns of the story itself, the final determination of the killer after others were viewed as suspects. I could hardly put it down and was sorry to see it end. I recommend it to any lover of mystery novels with a good portion of legal proceedings well played out.

Intricate development of characters in the book

I had not read a book by this author in a number of years and decided to try him again. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Would recommend it to people who like mysteries.

Just enough twists and turns to keep you pushing forward but enough clues to convince yourself you know who did it before the end

I simply love this book, it belongs in a series with the other Amanda Jaffe stories where this is the beginning story. I bought this book because I actually read the second book in this series "The Ties That Bind" first, so the story line really caught my interest. I would recommend this book and "The Ties That Bind" and "Proof Positive" which would complete the set. This book arrived on time and as described by the seller.
I have read all Margolin's books except for his newest, "The Associate" and this one, "Wild Justice", is the best I have read so far. This book keeps you second-guessing on who the actual suspect was. I already had figured it out who during the middle of the book, but I wasn't definitely 100% sure till later because you never know the author might fool you. That's what makes the book more interesting to read. I enjoyed it from the beginning to end.
