What the Critics Say

��[A] master yarn spinner.” (Booklist)

“A gifted writer with a distinctive voice. I read him with great pleasure.” (Richard North Patterson)

“Raymond Chandler once wrote that the test of a first-rate murder mystery is whether you would keep reading it if the last chapter - and the revelation of whodunit - were missing. In the matter of John Lescroart, I would keep reading any of his books, even without that last chapter.” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

    "VERY DISAPPOINTING"

    I love Lescroart's stuff, his Dismas Hardy "legal mysteries", and he is perhaps the best of this genre. But, here he tries to write a Hemingway-esque piece and it doesn't work. I tried and tried to finish this one but I couldn't. Maybe if he tried to put Dismas in Spain? Ah, forget it.
