What do you get when you combine a drug addicted surgeon, an ambitious lawyer, the bodies of nine torture victims, and a bad arrest? Phillip Margolin’s new novel “Wild Justice”.
Amanda Jaffe is the ambitious lawyer, trailing in her father’s footsteps, takes on the representation of Vincent Cardoni, a brilliant surgeon and womanizer with a checkered past of violence and substance abuse. He is accused of several murders after two heads and nine bodies are found on property traced to him. Other characters filling the suspect pool include Cardoni’s ex-wife, a brilliant doctor in her own right; Tony Fiori, Amanda’s love interest; a vengeful detective; and a mobster and his henchman, who believe they were ripped off by Dr. Cardoni.
I like a story that keeps you guessing for as long as possible. Margolin does as excellent job with his structure and his character development. I look forward to reading more from this great author.
