Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Carelessly confident that the cops will recognize his innocence when his wife is found murdered, Stuart Gorman tells them everything-and becomes not only the number-one suspect, but number-one with a bullet. He reluctantly hires lawyer Gina Roake. Back in the game after a personal loss of her own, Gina knows all too well that innocence is no guarantee of justice...

Synopsis:

After a weekend at his cabin on Echo Lake, Stuart Gorman returns home to find his wife Caryn floating dead in their hot tub. Homicide inspector Devin Juhle is called to the scene and soon learns that Gorman had recently asked for a divorce and that the couple had a $3 million insurance policy. A gambling man would bet that Stuart Gorman didnt stand a chance. But then a betting man might not have tangled with Dismas Hardys law firm and in particular, with Gina Roake.

Synopsis:

In his latest "New York Times" bestseller, legal-thriller powerhouse Lescroart delivers the story of a man accused of murdering his wife. Investigator Wyatt Hunt and police detective Devin Juhle appear, as does longtime series regular Dismas Hardy, but the lead goes to Gina Roake, an attorney in Hardy's firm. Available in a tall Premium Edition.

I thought I would be disappointed when I realized that Dismas Hardy and Abe Glitsky were not going to be major characters in this book. Not!!!!!!!!!!!

Enter Gina Roake, a tough but very human partner in Dismas Hardy's firm. Widowed when David Freeman, the firm's founder, is murdered, she's taken three years to get over her grief and moves on by taking on a high profile murder case.

The story progresses quite well as do most of Lescroart's books, a lot of character development, excellent court room scenes, believable dialogue. Towards the end, I had a hard time putting it down. Fairly surprising ending, actually two endings with all the loose ends tied up so we can get back to Dismas and Abe, I hope.

I notice some of the reviews I read expressed disappointment, not me. I'm sure most Lescroart fans and those trying him for the first time will feel rewarded when they finish this story.
