He is obsessed with her innocence. He will be destroyed by her guilt.

The walls were champagne. The house was immaculate. A prosperous doctor lived there with his son and his beautiful wife. But the elegant walls hid a family's secret, a wife's shame. And one day shots rang out in the doctor's house. Suddenly Jennifer Witt was in jail, facing the death penalty.

Jennifer insisted that she had not killed her abusive husband -- and she could never have killed her own son. Dismas Hardy believed her. But Hardy was only part of the defense team, and the only lawyer who continued to believe her...even as her story was torn to pieces, even as her lies came out, even as she was found guilty of murder.

Now there's only one thing Jennifer can do to save her life...and she refuses to do it. So Hardy must do it for her. And in a shocking case of violence, betrayal, and lies, his only weapon is the truth...

The 13th Juror...When innocence is not enough.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Sawczyn | 2/4/2014

    " Most suspenseful book I've read in a long while, kept my interest throughout, was very hard to put down. Although the book seemed predictable in parts, unexpected twists show how unpredictable it really is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elsie | 2/1/2014

    " Not the best Lescroart I've read but still intriguing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 1/14/2014

    " This Dismas Hardy novel finds Dismas working in the private sector as a defense attorney. This case finds him acting as Keenan counsel for a battered wife accused of killing her husband and son while his friend and landlord David Freeman handles the initial case. After Freeman loses the trial can Hardy find enough evidence to keep her from being put to death or even enough to have the judge set aside the verdict and free her? Good effort from Lescroart with good courtroom action and investigation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 1/7/2014

    " Dismiss Hardy mystery - Jennifer Witt accussed/convicted of murdering her husband and son. She refuses battered wife defense; maintains her innocence; and in twist at end actual murderer, her psychiatrist, is exposed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 12/13/2013

    " This book kept me guessing as to "who done it." Jennifer Witt tried to make everything perfect for her doctor husband who was shot dead along with her 7 year old son. Evidence mounts against Jennifer but will her attorney, Dismas Hardy, do enough to save her? Battered wife syndrome? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 12/10/2013

    " The 13th Juror is NOT a quick read, but it is one that you don't want to put down. The characters are very human and the plots and subplots keep you wondering just what the truth is. Jennifer Witt is accused of killing not only her abusive husband and only son, but also her first husband years earlier. The victims, except for the son, are not very likeable...but neither is Jennifer. Every character has their own agenda and it is hard to tell who or what to believe. The legal aspects of the story are very well explained and,as often in real life, the truth is complex and not easily revealed. You keep reading to the end to find out what really happened....and when you do it changes everything. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CLM | 12/2/2013

    " Lescroart's books sometimes take a while to get into but I always enjoy them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 12/2/2013

    " I don't know about you, but I'm the type of person who has to keep a list of the books that I have read. Otherwise, I ended in a situation like this where I read a book over again. This book was just okay the second there wasn't in new surprises. I discovered that I had read this book before when I reached the halfway point. It was much better the first time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 11/13/2013

    " This book came with others from Ann and I picked it up for an easy read just before leaving on a trip. I enjoyed all 500+ pages of it, plan to find and read other books by John Lescroart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 10/20/2013

    " I liked this one -- very good for its genre. Pretty good pace; kept my attention. Basic story of woman accused of killing her husband and son, and the lawyers hired to defend her. Some twists and turns along the way. Could have been edited down a bit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 10/14/2013

    " Move over John Grisham, you've got competition in my book. I look forward to reading more books about lawyer Dismas Hardy and am delighted to see there's a whole series of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darlis | 9/26/2013

    " Another good court room drama--we kept coming up with theories as to "whodunnit?" for the whole book. Stan and I really enjoy this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne R | 7/20/2013

    " I enjoy all of John Lescroart's books especially the Dismas Hardy's Series. The books do follow a similar thread but in a legal/mystery series that is to be expected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rae | 4/25/2013

    " A legal thriller in which a housewife is accused of shooting both her young son and doctor husband who is a control freak. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 4/9/2013

    " This was one of those breathless, can't sleep legal thrillers. Best in show. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 11/20/2012

    " I had figured out who "did it" within the first 50-60 pages but was still surprised at the catch at the end. For those who like courtroom mystery books, the Dis Hardy books are all pretty solid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 7/11/2012

    " Not bad. Contunuatio of the Dismus Hardy books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Kelly | 6/14/2011

    " I was about 1/3 of the way through before I got really interested. I will read him again, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dhartridge | 3/22/2011

    " Accurate portrayal of psychology of battered woman. Several red herrings had me fooled. I enjoy the camaraderie and family relationships of protagonists as well as the setting in my favorite city, San Fran. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 6/24/2010

    " Lescroart is one of my favourite authors. This was a great book, like everything he writes! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Walter Straus | 3/22/2010

    " Lescroart, John Sandford, and Scott Turow are among my favorite novelists. I have liked every book they have written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 2/28/2010

    " It was just ok. Too much irrelevant info makes for a long book. The epilogue was really good, but then it didn't pick up again until about chapter 50. Too many characters were introduced throughout the whole book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Merrie | 9/7/2008

    " I love the Dismus Hardy legal thrillers that John Lescroat writes. I can always tell about where in the series I am by the ages of Dismus' children. It is very easy to put myself in the book as I listen to it while driving to work. "
