Critic reviews

“[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)
