The Hearing by John Lescroart- A great book
The Hearing – John Lescroart ISBN 0-451-20489-1
What an excellent book. It is written by an author who clearly knows his subject-the law, and his location-San Francisco.
If you are a fan of the American court room or legal drama then this is the story for you. For the ladies it has a romantic element too so this is a book you could both read and find something special.
The hero is an ageing detective who is ably assisted by his friend a lawyer. The networking in this book is a model for us all to follow.
Lieutenant Glitsky is well known in San Francisco's world of crime and punishment. But he still has secrets. His illegitimate daughter, Elaine has been murdered and the DA calls for the death penalty. Dismas Hardy, the lawyer, battles to win a fair trial for his client, and finds himself entering a world of corruption.
Treat yourself to a classic tale.
