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.

From the author whose writing the Chicago Tribune called "twisted and brilliant," Proof Positive promises all the plot twists and gasp-inducing surprises that are Margolin's undisputed trademark.

    " YUCK. This book was so boring for me that I returned it without even reading halfway through...and I NEVER do that. It just felt like the author was trying too hard, and I could totally see where it was going. I guess I just wasn't interested. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony Kime | 5/23/2011

    " Forensic tech gone bad so he can put bad people away. "Evidence" distracts the good guys and the reader. If you need a mind dump, this is it. Entertaining and well written. Better then some of his other books... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shauna | 4/15/2011

    " Found this book in my sister's stash. Looks like she or someone else bought it for a plane trip from the OK airport. That should explain how good the book was.(That it was bought at an airport, not that it came from my sister's stash) "

    " Just got introduced to this author a few months ago and really like his writing style. Fast moving, suspense along with tense action. Story revolves around forensics faking, a little mob involvement and the proverbial innocent guy conficted unfairly. "

    " it took too long for the bad guy to be caught -- and until he was, too gruesome, with too many deaths -- definitely not a book I will want to read again :( "

    " I listened to this book on CD on this week's trip to Seattle. It was a real good suspence, I hated to see it end. I forgot how much I have enjoyed Phillip Margolin. He is a Portland Author and his books take place in Portland, which is cool to recognize locations and scenes in his book. "
