When Dismas Hardy agrees to clean up the caseload of recently disappeared attorney Charlie Bowen, he thinks it will be easy. But one of the cases is far from small-time - the appeal to overturn the murder conviction of National Guard reservist Evan Scholler, who has been sentenced to life without parole for the murder of an ex-Navy SEAL and private contractor named Ron Nolan. Two rapid-fire events in Iraq conspired to bring the men into fatal conflict: Nolan’s relationship with Evan’s girlfriend, Tara, a beautiful schoolteacher back home in the states, followed by a deadly incident in which Nolan’s apparent mistake results in the death of an innocent Iraqi family as well as seven men in Evan’s platoon. As the murky relationship between the U.S. government and its private contractors plays out in the personal drama of these two men, and the consequences for Evan become a desperate matter of life and death, Dismas Hardy begins to uncover a terrible and perilous truth that takes him far beyond the case and into the realm of assassination and treason. From the treacherous streets of Iraq to the courtrooms of California, Betrayal is a magnificent tour de force of pure storytelling. Download and start listening now!


Listener Opinions

    " This is a good read if you like James Patterson, Grisham, etc. I liked the current themes (Iraq) as well as the law aspect. I am a closet lawyer you know. There were a few words I could have done without but they are easily skipped over. "

    " This book in the Dismas Hardy series by John Lescroart was fascinating to me for it's glimpse into how the world of defense contracting in Iraq works. (Or doesn't work, depending on your point of view.) "

    " First three-fourths of the book are amazing, final 100 pages sort of drags, with the end result pretty predictable. But could not put the book down for the first 300 pages or so. "

    " This was quite interesting! We really enjoyed listening to it. It is the story of a Iraq war vet, his trial and appeal. So it has the elements of telling the story and the legal aftermath. Very intelligently done. The reader is quite good, too. "
