Gone but Not Forgotten
by Phillip Margolin

War and Peace
by Leo Tolstoy
In our interview with Margolin, he talks about some of his favorite reads, listing War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry, A Soldier of the Great War by Mark Helprin, and Stone City by Mitchell Smith among his top picks "because they are brilliantly written, have great characters, and -- most important -- have really good plots."
