Afer Dark, by Phillip Margolin, is the best mystery/thriller I¿ve ever read 'and believe me I¿ve read many'. To me the evaluation of how good a book is can be determined in how long it takes one to read it. I read After Dark in less than two days. It is a masterful work of penmanship with a twisted plot that keeps you reading to see whodunit, but the plot is so intricately woven, you never can decide what the resolution will turn out to be. Publishers Weekly called Margolin¿s style ¿whiplash plotting¿, which is an excellent description inasmuch as several characters were under suspicion. This was a complicated story with a great deal of legalese that could only be done through Margolin¿s background as an attorney. It is so well written, one must wonder if it comes from one of his court cases. If you are a mystery/thriller buff like me, then read this book. I think you will be as pleased as I was with it.

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.

After Dark was an excellent book. It was the first mystery book that I read and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The book had an ending that was surprising; it made you think about previous events that happened in the book and it's nice how everything falls in to place. I loved the book and would recommend it highly.

After Dark held my interest from beginning to end. I was so surprised with the ending. I loaned the book to a few of my friends and they loved it also. In fact, one friend went to the library and borrowed other books by Mr. Margolin and she thoroughly enjoyed them.

This novel has it all: love, hate, revenge, ethical dilemmas, and a surprise ending. I couldn't wait to find out who killed the Justice yet hated when it ended. Worth the time and money if you enjoy suspenseful legal stories.

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.

After Dark was a very good read. There were so many twists and turns in the story. Trying to figure out who was responsible for the murders Abbie was being tried for was interesting. There were clues early on but nothing was given away. I would recommend this book and am interested in checking out other works by this author.

Well put together. Intricate details come together seamlessly. However, I didnt understand why Tracy couldnt empathize with Reynolds delima but thats my personal opinion which doesnt take away from the book.
