My first time to read Phillip Margolin and it will not be the last. One of the best mystery novels that I have read in some time. Interesting, suspenseful, plausible, and a well told story is the best description of Gone but Not Forgotten.

The book shuffles back and forth a little between Hunter’s Point, New York and Portland, Oregon. The transitions are handled well and help to tie several items together.

Opening in Portland where Betsy Tannenbaum, a defense attorney, agrees to represent Martin Darius. Darius is accused of killing four people who were found buried on one of his construction sites. Three of the four were missing women whose last know whereabouts had been “decorated” with a black rose and a note that simply said, “Gone, but Not Fogotten”.

An investigator from Hunter’s Point arrives in Portland and informs the District Attorney of the same circumstances in murders that had occurred in the New York town some eight years previous. She also brings evidence including a fingerprint card of a suspect in those murders. Upon investigation it turns out that the suspect in New York (a gentleman named Peter Lake) is in fact Martin Darius who relocated to Portland.

Our author then weaves a very well written story of the events in the investigation and he very cleverly brings subplots into the mix. These subplots primarily involve Betsy Tannenbaum and her family. Her life gets turned upside down by her association with Martin Darius. Several other characters, especially the District Attorney, also play important roles. The author brings one major character into the story in a quiet, almost unobtrusive way. The method he uses to bring this about is interesting and somewhat different.

Phillip Margolin, who has made the NY Times bestseller list many times, is a former trial attorney. Gone, but Not Forgotten has sold over 1.5 million copies and was made into a TV mini-series. Overall a great book that holds the reader’s interest to the final chapter.
