Thriller

In this riveting new book by “master of the legal thriller” (Chicago Sun-Times) John Lescroart, attorney Dismas Hardy investigates the murder of a wealthy man whose heirs are all potential suspects.

Finally recovered from two glancing gunshot wounds, Dismas Hardy is looking forward to easing into retirement and reconnecting with his family. But he is pulled back into the courtroom when Grant Wagner, the steely owner of a successful family business, is murdered. The prime suspect is Wagner’s bookkeeper Abby Jarvis, a former client of Hardy’s, who had been receiving large sums of cash under-the-table from the company—but she insists that she’s innocent.

Preparing for trial, Dismas investigates the Wagner clan, discovering dark, twisted secrets, jealous siblings, gold-digging girlfriends, betrayals, and blackmail. The closer he gets to the Wagners, the clearer it becomes that Dismas has a target painted on his back. With Lescroart’s razor-sharp dialogue and whip-smart plotting, Poison is a nail-biter that will keep you guessing until the very last page.
