Overview

In Portland, Oregon, the wives of several prominent businessmen have disappeared without a trace, leaving behind only a black rose and a note with a simple message: "Gone, But Not Forgotten." An identical series of disappearances occurred in Hunter's Point, New York, ten years ago - but the killer was caught, the case was closed and the special "rose killer" task force was disbanded. Betsy Tannenbaum, a Portland wife and mother who has gained national recognition as a feminist defense attorney, is retained by multimillionaire Portland developer Martin Darius - for no apparent reason. Nancy Gordon, a homicide detective for the Hunter's Point Police Department and an original member of the "rose killer" task force, hasn't slept a full night in ten years, haunted by nightmares of a sadistic killer who, she swears, is still out there... Alan Page, the Portland district attorney, trying to make sense of the sudden series of disappearances, opens his front door one evening to find Nancy Gordon on his doorstep - determined to tell him a story he won't soon forget. Across the country, in Washington, D.C., the President of the United States has just selected United States Senator Raymond Colby to be the next Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. In a private meeting, Colby assures the President there are no skeletons in his closet.

Portland is cloaked in a shadow of fear by a series of disappearances identical to those ten years earlier on the other side of the country. As a female defense attorney receives a mysterious retainer from a multi-millionaire developer, the District Attorney begins a manhunt for a killer who leaves no traces . . . except for a black rose and a card reading "Gone, but not forgotten."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Images of gruesome violence pervade this gripping tale of abduction and serial murder. Affluent housewives in Portland, Ore., are disappearing without a trace. In each case the only clue is a black rose and a note reading, ``Gone, but Not Forgotten.'' Upstate New York police detective Nancy Gordon arrives to tell Portland's DA of a similar series of murders she had investigated back East. After implicating powerful local developer Martin Darius in the crimes, Gordon herself disappears. When several mutilated bodies are found at a construction site owned by Darius, police take him into custody. Darius's newly retained attorney, criminal lawyer Betsy Tannenbaum--a zealous advocate of women's rights and a successful defender of battered wives--begins her own search, which leaves her wondering if Darius is a psychotic killer on the loose, or the victim of a government cover-up involving the President's nominee for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Margolin ( The Last Innocent Man ) writes with breakneck pacing and just the right injection of lurid detail to make chills race down readers' spines. If his narrative is a bit choppy and some of the plot twists are telegraphed too clearly, he nonetheless delivers a top-notch whodunit with an explosive and satisfying conclusion. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club selection; major ad/promo; author tour. (Oct.)
Wes Lukowsky
Betsy Tannenbaum is a defense attorney of growing reputation in Portland, Oregon. Her specialty is battered wives who've retaliated against their abusive husbands. Local multimillionaire contractor Martin Darius puts Betsy on retainer for crimes he "may" be charged with in the future. Wives of local businessmen are being kidnapped; the only clues are a black rose and a note saying "Gone, But Not Forgotten" left at each scene. A police detective arrives from New York with evidence that Darius is actually Peter Lake, a New York attorney who was a suspect in a series of similar incidents 10 years earlier. Darius admits to Betsy his involvement in the first set of crimes but insists he's being framed for the current Portland kidnappings. Betsy is put in the position of defending an admitted monster who has shown that he prefers to torture his victims before he disembowels them. This is an excellent thriller in the "Silence of the Lambs" mold, but what sets it apart from similar efforts is the use of choice as a plot device. Throughout, good people are forced by circumstance to choose between two evils. How can one live with a decision when the choice is between today's suffering victims versus tomorrow's potential victims? The characters agonize because the results--whatever the choice--are the seeds of nightmares. This topnotch thriller more than lives up to the "Not Forgotten" in its title. Expect the book to generate debate--as well as chills--among its readers.

First Chapter

Gone, But Not Forgotten

Chapter One

"Have you reached a verdict?" Judge Alfred Neff asked the eight men and four women seated in the jury box.

A heavy-set, barrel-chested man in his mid-sixties struggled to his feet. Betsy Tannenbaum checked the chart she had drawn up two weeks ago during jury selection. This was Walter Korn, a retired welder. Betsy felt uncomfortable with Korn as the foreman. He was a member of the jury only because Betsy had run out of challenges.

The bailiff took the verdict form from Korn and handed it to the judge. Betsy's eyes followed the folded square of white paper. As the judge opened it and read the verdict to himself, she watched his face for a telltale sign, but there was none.

Betsy stole a glance at Andrea Hammermill, the plump, matronly woman sitting beside her. Andrea stared straight ahead, as subdued and resigned as she had been throughout her trial for the murder of her husband. The only time Andrea had shown any emotion was during direct examination when she explained why she shot Sidney Hammermill to death. As she told the jury about firing the revolver over and over until the dull click of hammer on steel told her there were no more bullets, her hands trembled, her body shook and she sobbed pitifully.

"Will the defendant please stand," Judge Neff said. Andrea got to her feet unsteadily. Betsy stood with her, eyes forward.

"Omitting the caption, the verdict reads as follows: 'We the jury, being duly impaneled and sworn, do find the defendant, Andrea Marie Hammermill, not guilty…' "

Betsy could not hear the rest of the verdict over the din in the courtroom. Andrea collapsed on her chair, sobbing into her hands.

"It's okay," Betsy said, "it's okay." She felt tears on her cheeks as she wrapped a protective arm around Andrea's shoulders. Someone tapped Betsy on the arm. She looked up. Randy Highsmith, the prosecutor, was standing over her holding a glass of water.

"Can she use this?" he asked.

Betsy took the glass and handed it to her client. Highsmith waited a moment while Andrea regained her composure.

"Mrs. Hammermill," he said, "I want you to know that I prosecuted you because I believe you took the law into your own hands. But I also want you to know that I don't think your husband had the right to treat you the way he did. I don't care who he was. If you had come to me, instead of shooting him, I would have done my best to put him in jail. I hope you can put this behind you and go on with your life. You seem like a good person."

Betsy wanted to thank Highsmith for his kind words, but she was too choked up to speak. As Andrea's friends and supporters started to crowd around her Betsy pushed away from the throng to get some air. Over the crowd she could see Highsmith, alone, bent over his table, gathering law books and files. As the assistant district attorney started toward the door, he noticed Betsy standing on the fringe of the crowd. Now that the trial was over, the two lawyers were superfluous. Highsmith nodded. Betsy nodded back.

    Gone but Not Forgotten

    The book I read was Gone But Not Forgotten by Phillip Margolin. The setting of this book is not all that important because it is in two different towns, Hunter's Point and Portland. If this story had a different setting it would need to have mountains and a deserted farm house, where the women were kept. It is not immpossible for a different setting, it might just take a while to find another place like the ones in the story. The major conflict in this story is between a serial killer named Martin Darius, and the governmment. In Hunter's Point, Martin would kidnap women, with no trace of srtuggle , but he left behind a black rose pinning down a card that says 'Gone but not forgotten'. He kept the women at a farmhouse and would use them for his own sick and twisted pleasure, trading them like dogs. When the women were found, Martin recieved a pardon and got away. Nine years later, in Portland, the same kidnappings began to happen, but Martin claims he is innocent. The story was written in third-person. It tells you what everyone is feeling and thinking. In one chapter, the author will stay on one main character, like Betsy Tannenbaum. Then in the next chapter, it will discribe in detail how Martin Darius is feeling or what he is thinking. If this story was told by one of the characters, he/she would miss out on an important action that took place while they were somewhere else. The narrator might not be that reliable, because he would lead you on about the killer being a certain character and then surprisingly it is someone else. The writer used a lot of flashbacks in this story. The book opens up in Portland, but in the next chapter, they go back nine years into Hunter's Point. After a few chapters there, the story went back to Portland, back to Hunter's Point, and then back to Portland to finish off the story. In this story, there are a lot of scenes that have blood and guts, like in the middle of the story a missing girl was planted in Henry Water's basement. When they found her, her insides were pulled out and she was lying in a pool of her own blood. Her body was totally mutalated. The writer also liked to build up suspense and have a lot of sad and disgusting scenes. He wrote it topically because whenever he is on a certain topic, he will give us a flashback.

    OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is the best book I have ever read. I came upon this book approximately 9 years ago and I'm still talking about it. I recommend it to anyone and everyone, especially those who love a good thriller like myself. I usually don't like to read a book more than once, but this one I can read over and over again. It will keep you on your toes, flipping pages and lacking sleep. You just can't wait to see what happens next. Margolin is my ultimate favorite author.

    I will never forget !!!!!!

    I read this book about eight years ago and forgot the title. I thought it was something to do with rose killers but to my dismay i was wrong. I finally found it and want to tell you this book is really intense. it took me 12 hours straight to read this book top find out what was going on and wished it kept on going. I would recommend this book to any whodunnit freaks out there. this book will remain 1 of my favorites forever.

    !!!!!INTENSE!!!!!

    I was in a slump when I picked up this book shortly after it's initial paperback release and what a VERY pleasant surprise! I can list on one hand how many books I have ever read which made me feel compelled to finish as soon as I possibly could...and 'Gone, But Not Forgotten' is one of them. I am always incredibly facinated with authors who can juggle several (engrossing) plot lines at once and then seamlessly tie them together by the ending, and I have GOT to hand it to Mr. Margolin, this book does it as good as any I have ever read. As a native Oregonian, I also found the use of one of my all-time favorite cities as a backdrop an added bonus. What can I say without spoiling the plot? The bad guy did some REALLLLLY bad stuff several years ago, and due to some ingenious plotting, wasn't convicted of any of it...jump ahead a few years to Portland, Oregon where the SAME crimes begin again, and since the police had never revealed the details to the crimes originally committed, NOBODY could have done them but our bad guy...or maybe not...? How this story unfolds and especially the ending is absolutely amazing! I would also recommend 'After Dark' and 'The Last Innocent Man' as his 2nd & 3rd runner-up best books, but after that, I haven't enjoyed his other books nearly as much...(I haven't read 'Wild Justice' YET) but as far as a whodunnit with style with a bad guy every bit as evil as Hannibal the Cannibal, but more intense, this story takes the cake. 'Gone, But Not Forgotten' has GOT to be one of my ALL-TIME favorite books, and if you even remotely enjoy murder/mystery/thrillers, this one just might become one of your favorites as well.

    It It didn't take me long to reach a verdict on this thrilling who-done-it novel by Phillip Margolin.
    I am glad I took it home with me. I can see why it made the New York Times bestseller list.
    I loved the sparks the novel generated in keeping me moving from page to page. It certainly kept me
    on the edge of my seat. It is a well-scripted fiction novel and one you cannot put down.
    "Gone, but Not Forgotten" will keep you spellbound.
    Wait until you see the ending. It is definitely worth waiting for.

    Simply a Great Book

    I'd never even heard of Margolin before someone gave me this book. It turned out to be one of the best detective novels I've ever read. Absolutely no slow spots in this one although some places are difficult to read due to the content. All of Margolins books are good, but this one is easily his best.
