WHEN A BRUTAL RAPIST IS MURDERED, A LOVING FATHER STANDS ACCUSED OF
THE CRIME. DEFENSE ATTORNEY DISMAS HARDY MUST DEFEND HIS
BROTHER-IN-LAW AND OLD FRIEND MOSES McGUIRE IN A THRILLING CASE
THAT HITS FAR TOO CLOSE TO HOME.
Moses McGuire has good reason to be concerned about his beautiful
twenty-three-year-old daughter, Brittany. She moves quickly from
one boyfriend to the next, and always seems to prefer a new and
mysterious stranger to a man she knows something about. But her
most recent ex, Rick Jessup, isn't willing to let her go,
culminating in a terrible night when Brittany is raped.
Within twenty-four hours, Rick Jessup is dead, Moses McGuire is the
prime suspect in the investigation, and Dismas Hardy has been hired
to defend his brother-in-law. Making things even more complicated,
McGuire has fallen off the wagon, and his stay in prison could
bring to light old secrets that would destroy Hardy and his closest
As the overwhelming evidence against McGuire piles up, Dismas 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, Hardy sees a new way forward that might just
save them all. But at what price?
For the first time since 2009, Dismas Hardy, the author's most
beloved protagonist, returns in a masterful novel that showcases
Lescroart's extraordinary story-telling gifts: a cast of
flesh-and-blood characters, morally complex situations, and
relentless, nail-biting suspense.
