When Dr. Caryn Dryden is found floating dead in her hot tub, homicide inspector Devin Juhle targets a suspect close to home: her husband, Stuart Gorman. After all, Stuart recently asked for a divorce…and he stands to gain millions in insurance. His alibi—that he was at his cabin on Echo Lake that weekend—doesn’t keep him out of hot water. But maybe a shrewd attorney will.

Gina Roake, a partner in Dismas Hardy’s firm, is eager to take on such a high-profile case, especially when the client’s innocence seems so easy to prove. Yet the more time she spends with Stuart, the more complicated her feelings become; she feels strangely drawn to him at first, then has to confront the possibility of a dark history lurking in his past. Desperate to know the truth, Gina calls in Wyatt Hunt to investigate. Before the facts are in, her client is on the lam; he’s already been tried in the press, and so he’s certain the courtroom won’t bring him any mercy either. Racing to a stunning conclusion as Gina uncovers disturbing answers, John Lescroart spins a chilling story of secrets, love, and lies.

Listener Opinions

    " The courtroom parts are what I liked best, but there weren't many of them. It's not as good as some of his others, but still okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martin Gall | 12/9/2013

    " As always, Mr. Lescroart did not disappoint. There were enough suspects in this crime story to keep you guessing. The protaganist had their usual doubts and faults as usual. This book is an easy read and will keep you interested as you read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 11/28/2013

    " This is not a Dismas Hardy (his usual main character), but I still really liked it - Lescroart is always a good read because he really makes his characters seem real...like someone you could actually talk to on the street. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 11/27/2013

    " I didn't mind this book. I would like to read another by John "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 11/19/2013

    " Not as good as The Hunt Club "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 11/12/2013

    " my fave Lescroart book so far. I think that after reading a few I enoy the repeatitive charcters' growth. This one is about an innocent man on trial for murdering his wife. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adalin Kucherina | 11/3/2013

    " The book was alright. Nothing special but a good read on a rainy day. The mystery is hard to figure out -- and I must admit I was suprised by the ending. This is generally a quick read and not a very memorable book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 7/28/2013

    " good story but not one of his best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia | 7/5/2013

    " A good mystery. A little predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grandpa Ellsworth | 6/21/2013

    " This follows Lescoart's formula for all of his books that I've read -- troubled attorney, idiot innocent client, miopic police, ambitious D.A., and day is saved at the end. It's a good story that pulls you along. Just a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jcurmudge | 5/31/2013

    " Fascinating writer. I finished this one reading far into the night. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie Liddiard | 5/7/2013

    " It was good. I had a hard time getting into it. Once I did it was good but it was one I only read when I was bored. Not one that I neglected everything else to read. lol "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kw | 3/10/2013

    " Good legal thriller. I like his writing and will read more of his books. Minimal profanity, thank goodness. None would suit me even better. I think if anyone should have an adequate vocabulary without it, authors and journalists should. ;-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darlis | 2/8/2013

    " Very enjoyable legal thriller. I liked the developing case and that there were actually a few plausible suspects. Really good actor doing the voices in the reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 1/6/2013

    " A good murder mystery. I had an idea who the real killer was. It could have gone several different ways. I liked how it ended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 9/28/2012

    " I still love all of his books, but the earlier ones in the Dismas Hardy series are by far his best. This is good though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hyck | 5/22/2012

    " Not my favorite Lescroart book. I think maybe because I am such a fan of Dismas Hardy and Abe Glitsky. That being said, it did hold my interest and kept me guessing as to whodunnit until pretty close to the end. All in all...pretty good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allen | 4/6/2012

    " Very disappointing, to the point that I quit the book about half way through. I'm a big fan of this author, but he seems to have run out of gas with his old characters and hasn't found new characters as engaging. Plot problems, also. Very predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gayle | 4/6/2012

    " Great book. Fast-paced and suspenseful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tory Wagner | 3/1/2012

    " Great story - moved quickly. The ending was a little predictable, but still a great yarn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole Reed | 12/20/2011

    " I enjoyed this once I finally picked it up and began reading. If you like court room drama and the findings of facts if a case, you'll like this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 12/6/2011

    " Not one of Lescroart's best, but a fun murder mystery read. Set in San Francisco... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brendan | 11/2/2011

    " I'm half way through and not sure I want to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 8/25/2011

    " Started off good, then kind of slow - disappointed with the ending... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christian | 7/14/2011

    " A decent summer/beach book. Read pretty fast.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexandra | 5/1/2011

    " Couldn't put this book down! Lescroart grabs you from page 1 and doesn't let go. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Neeroc | 2/6/2011

    " Disappointing. I cannot recall reading another book where the 'real' killer was telegraphed so early and clearly. And the original suspect was so unbelievably clueless that I'm surprised he could get himself dressed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adalin | 12/18/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 9/13/2010

    " This is Lescroart's usual tightly constructed novel with interesting and conflicted characters. I missed Dismas Hardy but the author provides a refresing change of pace with a female lead in Gina Roake. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gidget | 7/6/2010

    " This was my first book by this author. It was very hard to get into. I had to push myself to read it. I've already started another of his books and love it, so I'll give him another chance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 6/23/2010
