The Rule of Law

Lescroart (The Ophelia Cut) deftly employs an ensemble cast to reflect a variety of viewpoints, including DREAMers, ICE agents, and current political trends. He skillfully ties it all together, but the ending feels a bit forced. Still, the series' legions of fans will enjoy Hardy's return from a brief retirement. [See Prepub Alert, 7/2/18.]

Fatal

Overall, a very good work by an accomplished author. ["True to form, Lescroart handles his multiple story lines with aplomb": LJ 10/1/16 review of the Atria hc.]

Fatal

True to form, Lescroart handles his multiple story lines with aplomb, enticing readers to leave Dismas Hardy behind—for now. [See Prepub Alert, 7/18/16.]

The Ophelia Cut

Recommended for fiction collections, especially where previous titles in the series have been popular. [The Atria: S. & S. hc was a New York Times best seller.—Ed.]

The Hunter

Well read by Eric Dawe, the story contains enough twists and turns to hold the listener's interest. As in previous Hunt novels, the city is as much of a character as the wide range of police officers and PIs filling the narrative. Recommended to Lescroart's fans and others who enjoy fast-paced detective stories. ["Devoted Lescroart fans may enjoy the work, but thrill-seekers might want to look elsewhere," read the less-than-positive review of the New York Times best-selling Dutton hc, LJ Xpress Reviews, 1/20/12.—Ed.]

Damage

Lescroart (A Plague of Secrets; Betrayal) fans will be pleased with his latest; although this is not a Dismas Hardy book, he is involved. Other readers who enjoy legal thrillers will be entertained by this carefully woven suspense novel. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 8/10.]
