    Not His Best

    I have been a Margolin fan for many years but, for me, this book was not among his best. The details were overly repetitive. Characters rehashed the same issues over and over and I found myself skimming multiple sections. About a third of the way through the book, we were taken to various points decades back. These sections went on with tremendous detail, making it hard to stay connected to the characters in the present story. Also, I had a problem with the timeline. One of the main characters was drafted in the Vietnam War, yet he was only in his 40s in 2005.

    That being said, Margolin's writing is still crisp and entertaining. While I didn't love this book, it won't deter me from reading more from Phillip Margolin.

    Enjoyable Summer Read

    Take this one to the beach and you will knock it out in a day or two. Entertaining enough to hold your interest.

    Getting tired

    At first this author kept me involved because of his Portland connection, but that only goes so far. Paper characters and strained story line are disappointing.

    exciting political thriller

    General Morris Wingate is running for his party¿ presidential nomination against the incumbent president. To the public at large he is a hero who used his security officers from the company he owns to rescue hostages in Afghanistan. What they don¿t know is that when Wingate ran the agency for intelligence data coordination, he formed a black ops organization and assigned the men to kill those he declared as enemy combatants of the United States.--- To dissolve his personal unit, Morris sent his men into a trap in North Vietnam where they all died except for Carl Rice who escaped. Carl was once the lover of Wingate¿s daughter Vanessa Kohler. When she found about the unit she tried to expose her father as a traitor, but he instead had her committed to a mental institution and now nobody takes her seriously especially since she works on the tabloid Exposed. Carl surfaces after fifteen years on the run; he and Vanessa team up in the hopes of exposing retired General Wingate to the American people.--- Phillip Margolin has written an exciting political thriller that captures and keeps the audience¿s attention even when fans knows almost from the start that Wingate is evil but cleverly eliminates anyone who knew about his clandestine activities.. The audience will keep reading just to find out given the lack of no paper trail or other evidence how Wingate can be convicted in a legal court room or in the court of public opinion. LOST LAKE is a chilling work because the premise feels so plausible.--- Harriet Klausner

    TOP VOICE PERFORMER GIVES FINE READING

    Novelists cum attorneys tell their stories with ringing authenticity and revealing detail. Philip Margolin (Gone, But Not Forgotten; Ties That Bind; Wild Justice) practices that art with a skill that few can emulate. This time out, Margolin raises the bar even higher by creating a compelling female protagonist - Vanessa Kohler. Voice performer Deborah Hazlett is an articulate, polished reader who delivers both danger and sincerity with the sound of her voice. When Ami Vergano, a young single mother and an attorney in Portland, Oregon, goes to her son's little league game she is accompanied by a rather new friend, Dan Morelli. She's a bit surprised when Morelli steps in to take the place of an ailing assistant coach, but surprise quickly turns to horror when a brutal fight breaks out on the field. Many miles away Vanessa Kohler is riveted to her television set as she watches a news story about the bloodshed at the little league game. She has a checkered history - she's a former mental patient and has been dismissed as a crazy when she tries to tell officials about her father's involvement in a government conspiracy. The sight of Morelli propels her into action once again. Vanessa hires Ami to defend Morelli who is charged with attempted murder. What Ami discovers about Morelli's past is more than she bargained for, and Vanessa's accusations are equally troubling. It's up to Ami to find out the truth. Suspense all the way on this one - a terrific listen. - Gail Cooke
