I enjoyed this book as I have previous Lescroart books. This one was a little drawn out in the middle but overall it was a good read. Nice twist with the who-done-it. --K--

Lescroart scores again with the Mercy Rule. Was it a case of a son helping his father avoid losing his mind from Alzheimers? Or was there something more sinister afoot? Dismas Hardy digs in and unravels the complexities of the relationship between father and son. Along the way we have to give pause to consider whether assisted suicide is a mercy or whether it's just plain murder. Lescroart's characters are rich, multi dimensional and don't require the ego of Patterson's Alex Cross or the weirdness of Tannenbaum's Karp family. Dismas' character stands on his own along with Abe Glitsky in the pursuit of justice in it's multi-layers. Lescroart leaves you guessing, makes you think and goes beyond the traditional "whodunnit".

This was the first Lescroart book I read. Thirty days later I had read them all. This book makes you think hard about assisted suicide while weaving a murder(?) and great characters together. Read this one then get started on his others.
