Review Text

  • By Jeanette Cooper on July 31, 2008

    "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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    A very well written thriller, with a tad to much blood and guts. It all worked good together in this book though. I will definitely buy the next one In the series. if your into suspense you will definitely enjoy this.

    Well written but drawn out and predictable.
