    "Loved this book great storyline"

    This was my first John Lescroat book and I am now a fan. It was a good story with lots of characters and a main character that was dragged into a murder investigation all the while not being sure if his wife Frannie had been unfaithful.

    "Another Good Lescroart Book"

    I didn't find this book to be slow - I wanted to see where the story was going at each new event. I'm a John Lescroart fan & wasn't disappointed by this one. I didn't realize that this was an older book though - I thought it was a new release.

    Probably not


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Could you see Nothing but the Truth being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No it wasnt interesting enough

    "Slow in the middle"

    My first book by this author, and I was disappointed. It felt very much like the Kellerman series, almost like a carbon copy, especially in the relationship between husband and wife.

    The story line slowed tremendously in the middle, and I felt like I could miss several minutes and still keep up with what was happening. Overall, a slow thriller, so does that make it a no-thrill?

    "Couldn't wait to see where this was going!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I had no idea where this mystery was going. This is my first Lescroart book and I'll definitely read (or listen!) to more. An enjoyable murder/thriller. I couldn't wait to hit play and see who-dun-it!

    What did you love best about Nothing but the Truth?

    The perseverance of Dismas Hardy to not only free his wife but to right the wrong for Ron and his kids.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not quite, it was suspenseful but not utterly


    Have you listened to any of David Colacci’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no, this is my first


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first book by John Lescroart and I really enjoyed the mystery. Great work

    Story
    "Not his best"

    I generally love the Dismas Hardy/Abe Glitsky books. However, if this had been the first one I read, it definitely would have been the last. Not one character was likeable. Just petty, childish, ridiculous behavior by all the characters, particularly Frannie and Dismas. The situations were implausible or just annoying. I will read more, because I have enjoyed them in the past, but not this one.

    And the use of "Jesus Christ" as an expletive is offensive and tiresome.

    Story
    "Lescroarts and Colacci are unmatched"

    The Abe Glitzky-Dismas Hardy series is one of the most compelling and sustained works of the "mystery-thriller" genre. Lescroarts has created characters who grow over time, live through deaths of their loved ones and also the everyday-ness of actual life. These books are non-fiction as well as great ideas. The dialogue rings true. The court scenes are a bit
    lengthy, but the drama of each case warrants the detail, and the trials typically contain enough real-life drama outside the courtroom to hold your attention. Each time you know that Hardy will win, of course, but, as with Joe Montana and Michael Jordan, everyone watching knew what was going to happen. It was the nature of the genius at work that kept everyone on the edge of their seats.
    Both Hardy and Glitzky live through life events that many of us do; divorce, career changes and the double-edged sword that reaching a goal always is. Glitzky is perhaps the most fully nuanced male character in fiction. One day I half expect to meet him in the San Francisco Police Department Homicide detail. Timothy Olyphant could play him, if Tim were half Jewish and half black, with a scar running across his lips that flares white when he is enraged. You will not regret a moment spent with this group of people. They are funny, inventive, likeable, they love their work in the same way that some of us love our spouses; i.e., we occasionally want to kill them.
