A beautiful woman paid it with her body. A seedy lawyer used somebody else’s money. It’s the vig – the exorbitant interest mob loan sharks take on their money. Now, in the city by the Bay, everyone has to pay… Down-and-out-lawyer Rusty Ingraham left behind a murdered woman and a houseboat splattered with blood. All the evidence said Ingraham was in San Francisco Bay. Dead. But a friend of Ingraham’s, former cop and prosecutor Dismas Hardy, isn’t so sure. And Hardy has to find out, because a stone-cold killer, now paroled, once threatened to kill Ingraham and Dismas Hardy both. Now, to save his own skin, Dismas must face down liars and killers on both sides of the law. From mob foot soldiers to brokenhearted lovers to renegade cops, a dozen lives are tied to the fate of Rusty Ingraham – and the payback has only just begun… Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathie Haley | 1/7/2014

    " Great mystery. Sometimes you just need something quick and easy to read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 1/4/2014

    " I had to read this to find out how Dismas ended up with the wife he has. I had read some of the later ones, and knew what happened in his life, but not why. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joan | 12/17/2013

    " The Vig, in my opinion, was not up to Lescroart's standard. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lora Stovall | 12/1/2013

    " This is the second Dismas Hardy books, and at least as good as the first. His books don't seem to end the same way as other murder mysteries. Justice is served in his own way. "

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

    " Not as interesting as the others in this series I have read. The story line ahd very little to do with the 'Vig', and the tie in was minimal. Not Lescroart's best effort. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deanna Hansen | 1/10/2013

    " Continuation of Dead Irish with same characters 3 months later. Lots of review of previous story and repetition of certain phrases (white scar on detective's lip) became irritating as story moved along. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darlis | 8/11/2012

    " Another good one. However, it is clearly an early one in the series. You can tell by the repitions, language, etc. that this is not the height of the series. But it was fun to listen to in the car. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allie | 2/22/2012

    " I wanted to quit reading this book multiple times but powered through, it's okay but the ending is somewhat predictable. This is the first of the Dismas Hardy series I've read, not sure if I'll read another. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 8/17/2011

    " Great page-turner with fun, scummy charcaters. Set in San Francisco with shades of Sam Spade in he background, Lescroart paints a rich picture of deception and murder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 6/15/2011

    " good. moves the story along. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen Draughon | 2/28/2010

    " Much better than his first one. I'm reading the third one now. "

    " Thoroughly predictable, but still an interesting story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 7/6/2008

    " I made the mistake of reading a novel later in the series & I absolutely could not put it down. I'm trying to get up to speed. I hope the books will get up to speed soon too! Nevertheless, still a great read. "
