Publisher's summary

When the bullet-ridden body of a Silicon Valley billionaire washes up on shore, assistant D.A. Dismas Hardy finds himself the prosecutor in San Francisco's murder trial of the century. The suspect: a Japanese call girl with a long list of prominent clients. But when a bizarre series of events blows the case wide open, Hardy finds himself on the other side of the law - as a lawyer for the defense.

Phoned in the ending

What did you love best about Hard Evidence: A Dismas Hardy Novel?

Great story with lots of plot twists

Would you be willing to try another book from John Lescroart? Why or why not?

Yes, I've enjoyed many of the books in this series

What about David Colacci’s performance did you like?

He really is the voice of these characters. And it has a lot of range and expression. Great storyteller.

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

The DA underestimates Dismas Hardy, and it comes back to hurt him.

Any additional comments?

Great story with many good turns. We get to see the vulnerable side of the protagonist in this one, which is refreshing. There's a buildup to the ending with a lot of tension, but after having done all that work we learn of the final verdict after the fact by way of a narrated account of the newspaper columnist. I found this device to be disappointing and anti-climactic. The author went through great pains throughout the book to build the tension with incredible detail, but at the end it felt like he got bored, and cut strait to the punchline. I have read one other in this series where a similar device was employed, and felt the same disappointment.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
