Doug Weaver is a defense attorney who always believes the best of his clients, and Jacob Cohen, on trial for murder, is no exception. Jacob may be homeless and mentally ill, but Doug can't believe that this meek and intensely religious man could have killed and dismembered a woman. Yet Bernard Cashman, a forensic expert at the Oregon State Crime Lab, finds evidence that indisputably connects Cohen with the crime.
Frustrated and confused, Doug consults Amanda Jaffe, who, with her father, Frank, is working on a case that seems completely unrelated -- gangster Art Prochaska is accused of murdering an informer. When Amanda starts looking too closely at the seemingly air-tight evidence in these two apparently unconnected cases, people start to die -- and she discovers that a madman with the power to alter the truth is on the loose.
From the author whose writing the Chicago Tribune called "twisted and brilliant," Proof Positive promises all the plot twists and gasp-inducing surprises that are Margolin's undisputed trademark.

"Margolin's third legal thriller featuring lawyer Amanda Jaffee is proof positive that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts--especially when boosted by a competent reader like this one. Nanette Savard saves the day by propelling listeners through some implausible legal shenanigans and equally trite dialogue. Jaffee defends a troubled man accused of murder while her father, also a lawyer, is hired to defend a gangster, similarly accused. Both are unaware that the cases are linked and evidence has been tampered with. Savard's crisp reading makes the listening experience pleasurable. She is also better than most female readers at portraying male characters. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
