Об этой аудиокниге

It's a beautiful summer night in Portland, Oregon. Ami Vergano, a young attorney and single mother, arrives at her son Ryan's little league game with their tenant and new friend, Dan Morelli. When the assistant coach calls in sick, Morelli seems happy to help out.But then one player roughly blocks another and a fight erupts.Before the game ends, Ami witnesses violence that shocks and horrifies her and makes her question everything she thought she knew about Morelli.

On the other side of the continent, ex-mental patient Vanessa Kohler, a reporter for Exposed, a tabloid that specializes in alien abduction stories, watches a piece on television about the little league massacre and quickly places a call to the FBI. For years she's been telling anyone who will listen about a vast government conspiracy to conceal a secret military unit headed by General Morris Wingate, a presidential candidate, and for years everyone has dismissed her stories. But when Vanessa sees Dan Morelli fighting, she believes she's found the key to proving that her theories are true.

Vanessa hires Ami Vergano to represent Morelli, who is charged with attempted murder, and Ami is drawn into Vanessa's paranoid world. Are Vanessa, a former mental patient, and Morelli, a confessed mass murder, telling the truth about one of the nation's most respected soldiers and politicians? Or are their charges the products of two sick minds? Ami has to decide who and what to believe in Phillip Margolin's most exciting and surprising thriller since his breakout bestseller Gone, But Not Forgotten.

    A widow with a young son takes in a renter, with training unlike any other. When that training comes back, the widow is thrown in the middle of a seemingly paranoid tale of secret government military units. The characters were well done and so likeable when the should be and despised when they should be. Even the supporting characters had enough depth that I found myself wanting to know even more about them (and cheering them on).

    Lost Lake was entertaining, moved along nicely, had a strong plot and good tension. There was a lot to like about it. It's the story of a man Carl Rice, who was part of a general who is now running for president's secret army of assassins. Years later, he is arrested. A lawyer who befriended him agrees to take his case while General Wingate targets him for assassination. Although I enjoyed, there were some parts that I thought were unbelievable and brought the book down a peg. For instance, the evil General Wingate was running against the incumbent president in his party's primary and beating him. That does not happen in real life. The moment Wingate daughter started making allegations against him, he would be sunk. There's no way in hell a presidential candidate could have done all of those horrible things without it getting uncovered; ask Herman Caine, Bill Clinton and Gary Hart. Once the whole thing got uncovered Wingate's response was so utterly preposterous that it was laughable. Margolin wrote a decent story, but he needs to get a grip on reality.Carl Alves - author of Two For Eternity

    I have been a Margolin fan for many years but, for me, this book was not among his best. The details were overly repetitive. Characters rehashed the same issues over and over and I found myself skimming multiple sections. About a third of the way through the book, we were taken to various points decades back. These sections went on with tremendous detail, making it hard to stay connected to the characters in the present story. Also, I had a problem with the timeline. One of the main characters was drafted in the Vietnam War, yet he was only in his 40s in 2005. That being said, Margolin's writing is still crisp and entertaining. While I didn't love this book, it won't deter me from reading more from Phillip Margolin.

    Same as "Gone But Not Forgotten." Not much character depth, but a good read with interesting twists and turns. That's enough for Margolin

    An over-the-top novel that gave you too much connection with the characters so you never doubted their intentions even though the rest of the world did. The story is told through many different views, probably the wrong ones.
