It starts with a double homicide. Because of the high profiles of the victims - a politically connected socialite and his glamorous fiancée - the mayor of San Francisco herself demands that a high-ranking detective be put on the case. And so Abe Glitsky is thrust into the controversial investigation. Dan Cuneo, the officer already working the case, is immediately wary of Glitsky and doesn’t hide his distrust. Matters are made worse when Cuneo starts to focus on his primary suspect - who also happens to be an old girlfriend of Dismas Hardy. For Hardy and Glitsky, this is an awkward and uncomfortable coincidence. But for Cuneo, it’s proof positive of collusion, and yet another instance of Glitsky cheating with his insider friends and cronies. Convinced that Hardy’s client is the wrong suspect, Glitsky breaks ranks within the police department to continue his own investigation. As Hardy’s murder trial builds to its stunning conclusion, Glitsky’s search for the truth does more than fuel suspicion against the two men. It reveals a trail of deception that leads beyond San Francisco, where exposing desperate secrets can be the most deadly offense. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Excellent read! Legal thrillers can often be rather dry because there is so much emphasis put on the legal aspects that the characters are often two-dimensional or too dry for words. Not the case with Lescroart! We are not only exposed to the professional sides of Dismas Hardy and Abraham Glitsky, but also to their engaging humor, their fears, their families along with the dramas they create, and all the other elements that cause a reader to step right into their lives. "

    " This was a good one. My favorite characters (Abe and Dismas) involved in solving the crime of who murdered a man and his fiance and then burnt his house down around him. Good one about a mixed up family and a good twist at the end (although it wasn't too hard to guess the twist--girlfriend did it and framed daughter-in-law). Liked it, will keep it on my shelves. "

    " I like legal thrillers that have some historical background. "

    " Similar pace and style to the rest of the Dis Hardy series. Not the best, not the worst. "
