"In "master of the legal thriller" (Chicago Sun-Times) John Lescroart's electrifying new novel, attorney Dismas Hardy is called to defend the least likely suspect of his career: his longtime, trusted assistant who is suddenly being charged as an accessory to murder. Dismas Hardy knows something is amiss with his trusted secretary, Phyllis. Her out-of-character behavior and sudden disappearances concern Hardy, especially when he learns that her convict brother--a man who had served twenty-five years in prison for armed robbery and attempted murder--has just been released. Things take a shocking turn with Phyllis is suddenly arrested at work for allegedly being an accessory to the murder of Hector Valdez, a coyote who'd been smuggling women into this country from El Salvador and Mexico. That is, until recently, when he was shot to death--on the very same day that Phyllis first disappeared from work. The connection between Phyllis, her brother, and Hector's murder is not something Dismas can easily understand, but if his cherished colleague has any chance of going free, he needs to put all the pieces together--and fast. Proving that he is truly "one of the best thriller writers to come down the pike" (USA TODAY), John Lescroart crafts yet another whip-smart, engrossing novel filled with shocking twists and turns that will keep you on your toes until the very last page"-- Provided by publisher.

John Lescroart's RULE OF LAW with Dismas Hardy is another great read. The book has several subplots working at once: sanctuary cities; 2) a couple (not so) cold cases with vulnerabilities for Hardy & company; and a narcissistic new District Attorney who thinks the rules of law don't apply to him. Once again a thriller writer steps up and weaves a plot that addresses current issues we face as a country. Enjoy.

It’s been a while since I’ve picked up a Lescroart, but it was easy falling back in with the world of Dismas Hardy! Been reading these since #1 and this is #18!

This one brought closure to a few incidents from previous stories involving Hardy, Glitsky, Roake and Farrell. It’s a fun and real page turner, if you’re a fan you won’t be disappointed.
