Phillip Margolin

Phillip Margolin has written over twenty novels, most of them New York Times bestsellers, including Gone But Not Forgotten, Lost Lake, and Violent Crimes. In addition to being a novelist, he was a long time criminal defense attorney with decades of trial experience, including a large number of capital cases. Margolin lives in Portland, Oregon.

His new novel is The Third Victim.

Recently I asked Margolin about what he was reading. His reply:
My favorite book I read recently is A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. It is magical and everything a novel should be.

I also finished Greg Iles' Natchez Burning trilogy while on vacation. This consists of three huge books – Natchez Burning, The Bone Tree and Mississippi Blood – which are really one very long but thoroughly engrossing novel set in the present that revolve around civil rights murders committed by a secret offshoot of the KKK in the 1960s that might have been involved in JFK’s assassination.
