I haven't read any of his books yet but I have Sleeping Beauty on my TBR and lent it to my parents and he says it's the best bok he's read in a long time.  For those of you who have read his books, are his others as good?  I'm thinking of getting some more of his books and need recommendations!

I listened to one of his books on tape and it was very good.  It was "Gone But Not Forgotten".  Loved it.

I've enjoyed all his books but I think Sleeping Beauty was my personal favorite of his.

I read Gone But Not Forgotten as my first book by him.  I can't tell you how much I loved it!  I always read his as soon as they come out.  I'm #1 on the WL for his 2008 release!!!  Woo-Hoo!

I just got done listening to Wild Justice.  It was great!  I have a few other ones on my TBR from him.  Can't wait to read those.

Just finished Executive Privilege, have also read Proof Positive, Ties That Bind, The Associate, and Lost Lake.  He really knows how to spin a tale!  Love Margolin!

I just finished my first book by him, Sleeping Beauty, last night.  I told dh when I was in the middle of it if X is the killer in the end, then I'm never reading another book by Margolin again.  But if X was not the killer, then I definitely will.  Mind you, this was in the middle of the book.  So, X was indeed the killer so I'm not going to waste my time on any more books by him.  I actually enjoyed his style of writing, but the reviews made it sound like the plot had so many twists and turns and kept you guessing til the end that I was rather disappointed that it was so easy for me to guess whodunit.  And, I rarely read this genre so that made it even more disappointing.  It did read easy, like you were watching a movie, and there were a couple of scenes that made me edgy.

I enjoy his books; I've read three and liked them all. Jeartstone, Sleeping Beauty and Wild Justice. I think Wild Justice was the  best of these three.
