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.
