Book Review: ¿After Dark.¿ In the book, ¿After Dark¿ by Phillip Margolin, Tracy Cavanough, a young lawyer, finds her best friend dead. Soon after, Justice Robert is killed by a car bomb. This mystery then takes its place in a law firm. In this book, the plot is a very hard to follow. It is non-linear in how the events occurred. One thing happens, and then the plot jumps to something else. This mystery has many twists and turns. Although some dialogue goes into more detail, it sometimes becomes hard to follow. For example, Dr. Shirov goes into detail about neutron activation analysis. This dialogue didn¿t need to be that detailed, it confuses the reader. The final conclusion was exciting, but for that you have to read through the plot twists. In my opinion, ¿After Dark¿ is a very smart book to read, but the author¿s writing style is hard to follow. I would recommend this book to people who like law mysteries. However, I don¿t recommend it to people who don¿t know much about law.

Good plot. Different than his other novels.
I liked this story. It was not as gory as his newer books and had a quaint small town feel. The main character was not as likable as his other characters and he did not really grow on me as he changed throughout the story. Its worth the read. Good story.Was this review helpful?
