Publishers Weekly

At the start of the adrenaline-infused 10th thriller to feature DA Dismas Hardy (Dead Irish, etc.) from bestseller Lescroart, Hardy agrees to wrap up some of the caseload of a Bay Area lawyer who has mysteriously disappeared. After discovering that the lawyer was set to appeal an apparently straightforward murder case, Hardy realizes that the crime had its origins in Iraq, where the alleged killer and his victim first met. With the help of his old friend, Det. Abe Glitsky, Hardy learns that the victim, ex-navy SEAL Ron Nolan, was sleeping with the girlfriend of National Guard Reservist Evan Scholler, who was later convicted of killing Nolan. As Hardy and Glitsky dig deeper, they discover that Nolan had committed several murders himself, and it's up to Dismas and Hardy to unravel the conspiracy that may have roots in the U.S. government. Lescroart weaves his trademark complicated yet fast-moving tale, full of believable characters and crisp dialogue. A first-rate addition to the author's ongoing series, this should please both longtime readers and new fans. (Feb.)

In his 12th legal drama (after The Suspect), San Francisco defense attorney Dismas Hardy takes on the open cases of missing attorney Charlie Bowen. What seems to be simple housecleaning presents the case of Evan Scholler, a National Guard reservist convicted of the murder of Ron Nolan, a former friend and a private contractor in Iraq. As Dismas works on Evan's appeal, he begins to suspect that the security company Nolan worked for in Iraq and the government money it was bringing in have something to do with Bowen's disappearance, Nolan's death, and an FBI cover-up. With a complex plot, it would be easy to become bogged down in backstory, but Lescroart keeps the action moving. Lescroart's depiction of the measured cynicism of what America is doing in Iraq is so compelling that readers will hardly notice that Dismas and his police detective friend Abe Glitsky are absent for two-thirds of the book. Fans of the duo may be disappointed in the lack of movement in their personal stories, but the novel is still extremely satisfying. Recommended for public libraries where legal thrillers are popular.

Kirkus Reviews
Bay Area lawyer Dismas Hardy's first starring role since The First Law (2003) tackles a controversial subject: the independent contractors making a killing in Iraq. Even though he was defended by hotshot attorney Aaron Washburn, it's no wonder that Evan Scholler was convicted of murdering Ron Nolan in 2005. The two men had been close in Baghdad: Scholler an ex-cop National Guard lieutenant whose unit was deployed to Iraq with no clear mission, Nolan a contractor for Allstrong Security who inveigled the unit into accompanying his hefty cash pickups. But their friendship shattered when Nolan, having seduced Scholler's ex-girlfriend Tara Wheatley back in the States, provoked an ambush that decimated Scholler's group and left him with a brain injury. When he finally learned the depth of Nolan's perfidy, Scholler vowed to kill him, and all the evidence indicates that he did. Three years after Washburn's unsuccessful defense, Charlie Bowen, the attorney preparing Scholler's appeal, vanished. Now, after six months, he's been declared incompetent to file the appeal, which has been assigned to Hardy. After sitting out most of the opening 300 pages, Hardy settles down to sift through reams of documents, most of them damning. Eventually he notices a sinister pattern: Several minor figures associated with the case (an ex-SEAL with Allstrong, an Iraqi middleman, Charlie Bowen's suspicious wife) have died violently, leaving behind no evidence of who killed them. Was Scholler framed after all? Of course he was-and although it's pretty obvious who did the job and why, it's a pleasure watching Hardy pick up the scattered pieces and fit them together. Sturdy wartime intrigue, subpar courtroom drama, littlemystery, much righteous (and infectious) anger. A great case, but a decidedly mixed verdict. Agent: Barney Karpfinger/Karpfinger Agency
