Book ~ "Proof Positive" - Phillip Margolin (2006)

From Amazon.com ~ In bestseller Margolin's third legal thriller featuring defense lawyer, Amanda Jaffe, respected forensic expert, Bernard Cashman, who works for the Oregon State Crime Laboratory, has developed a personal philosophy that allows him to manufacture evidence to ensure the successful prosecution of those he feels are guilty, especially if crucial evidence is missing. He's not a madman, just absolutely sure that he knows more than judge, jury and the legal system when it comes to administering justice. After a fellow crime lab employee approaches him about discrepancies in his work, he adds murder to his list of methods that ensure his continuing crusade. The author deftly manages a large cast of characters and ties the many plot lines together with enough clever twists to satisfy faithful fans and newcomers.

I like Margolin's books, though I hadn't read any in a while. I enjoyed this book. I found it confusing at first keeping the characters straight but was fine once I got to know them.
