A ten-year-old New York case involving disappearing wives, supposedly solved, returns to haunt Portland, Oregon, as feminist defense attorney Betsy Tannenbaum is hired by a wealthy developer

Blackwell North Amer
In Portland, Oregon, the wives of several prominent businessmen have disappeared without a trace, leaving behind only a black rose and a note with a simple message: "Gone, But Not Forgotten."
An identical series of disappearances occurred in Hunter's Point, New York, ten years ago - but the killer was caught, the case was closed and the special "rose killer" task force was disbanded.
Betsy Tannenbaum, a Portland wife and mother who has gained national recognition as a feminist defense attorney, is retained by multimillionaire Portland developer Martin Darius - for no apparent reason.
Nancy Gordon, a homicide detective for the Hunter's Point Police Department and an original member of the "rose killer" task force, hasn't slept a full night in ten years, haunted by nightmares of a sadistic killer who, she swears, is still out there...
Alan Page, the Portland district attorney, trying to make sense of the sudden series of disappearances, opens his front door one evening to find Nancy Gordon on his doorstep - determined to tell him a story he won't soon forget.
Across the country, in Washington, D.C., the President of the United States has just selected United States Senator Raymond Colby to be the next Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. In a private meeting, Colby assures the President there are no skeletons in his closet.

One of Margolin's better novels. This one has it all
twists and turns,up and downs,
Very interesting story line
caped off by a surprising
ending. A must read for criminal law lovers.

The book is really interesting and the plot has a good premise but somehow I felt it wasn't as well develoved as it could have been. Also, there were several procedural errors that even I could detect and I'm not a trained detective or pathologist
