review ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF × John Lescroart

To her husband Frannie has just appeared before a grand jury and refused to share a crucial piece of information about her friend Ron who's accused of killing his wife Now it's up to Dismas to race the clo I really have been enjoying this series so far The writing is straightforward and there s a good balance of well thought out plots and believable engaging characters The author is obviously familiar with the intricacies of bureaucratic BS he integrates it so well into his stories That being said I thought that this sixth entry in the series was not as satisfying as the first five it had a very strong beginning and conclusion but got a little overcomplicated and wordy in between While I did not like this book as well as the others I ve read in the series it s still in my opinion a cut above many of the books available for crimecourtroom drama fans
