Atria Books | March 18, 2014 | Trade Paperback

The Ophelia Cut: A Novel is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 3.
New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart’s most beloved protagonist returns to face the most personal case of his career in a masterful novel that showcases all of this author’s extraordinary storytelling skills.

When Moses McGuire becomes the prime suspect in the murder of his own daughter’s rapist, attorney Dismas Hardy- Moses’s brother-in-law- agrees to defend him. But McGuire has fallen off the wagon, and his stay in prison could bring to light old secrets that would destroy Hardy and his closest colleagues’ careers. As the overwhelming evidence against McGuire piles up, Hardy focuses on planting doubt in the minds of the jurors- until, in a feat of legal ingenuity that is staggering in both its implications and its simplicity, he sees a new way forward that might just save them all. But at what price?

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read! I love all of John Lescroart's books and this was no exception. His books are always long and satisfying and I love the character of Dismas Hardy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my favourite one I enjoy this series but this was not my favourite. Too many loose ends just hanging at the end. I felt as if there was a chapter missing. Perhaps the author plans to tie it together with the next one. But this was not as good as many of the previous books in the series.
