Lawyer turned novelist; Phillip Margolin worked for the Oregon Court of Appeals before eventually moving into private practice. However, in 1996, he began writing full-time. His novels have won numerous awards and accolades, and several have been made into movies and miniseries. He has authored over 20 novels, all of which have been bestsellers. In his latest novel, Murder at Black Oaks, Attorney Robin Lockwood investigates a murder at an isolated resort in the Oregon mountains where she is tasked with finding a murderer among the odd group of guests. Murder at Black Oaks is a “skillfully written and well-polished new classic mystery” that is the “perfect winter read.”
