Doug Weaver is a defense attorney who always believes the best of his clients, and Jacob Cohen, on trial for murder, is no exception. Jacob may be homeless and mentally ill, but Doug can’t believe that this meek and intensely religious man could have killed and dismembered a woman. 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, who, with her father Frank, is 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.

    " What happens when a forensic expert, a self-appointed "hero", plants evidence to get the bad guys convicted in several cases - a great story on an unusual premise. A solid B+. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Review by Marti | 1/22/2014

    " This is a book that I have been reading while using my stationary bike, sporadically. I have already forgotten some of what I have read. Persons end up being accused unjustly, and evidence is tampered with by other people who are supposed to be trustworthy. It was rather interesting, and I believe that I have read other books by Mr. Margolin. "
