Overview

Betrayal (Dismas Hardy Series #12) by John Lescroart, David Colacci

When Dismas Hardy agrees to clean up the caseload of recently disappeared attorney Charlie Bowen, he thinks it will be easy. But one of the cases is far from small-time—the appeal to overturn the murder conviction of National Guard reservist Evan Scholler, who has been sentenced to life without parole for the murder of an ex-Navy SEAL and private contractor named Ron Nolan. Two rapid-fire events in Iraq conspired to bring the men into fatal conflict: Nolan’s relationship with Evan’s girlfriend, Tara, a beautiful schoolteacher back home in the States, followed by a deadly incident in which Nolan’s apparent mistake results in the death of an innocent Iraqi family as well as seven men in Evan’s platoon. As the murky relationship between the U.S. government and its private contractors plays out in the personal drama of these two men, and the consequences for Evan become a desperate matter of life and death, Dismas Hardy begins to uncover a terrible and perilous truth that takes him far beyond the case and into the realm of assassination and treason.

From the treacherous streets of Iraq to the courtrooms of California, Betrayal is a magnificent tour de force of pure storytelling.

Lescroart takes Tannenbaum to another level. His characters are more believable and his plots are far more topical. Betrayal combines a classic "whodunit" with terrorism, Iraq, Blackwater and legal manuevering. Dismas Hardy is believable, flawed, brilliant without having to rely on the type of vigilante wife that I find so unbelievable in Tannenbaum's offerings. Pick up Betrayal and enjoy the story.

Sigh...yet another author strays from his tried and true story lines to enter the world of self-indulgent politicking. Couldn't wait for Dismas Hardy and company to return, only to find more than half the book a thinly disguised left-wing leaning attack on our men and women serving in harm's way...not everyone who sees (saw) action wigs out on society. It really dredged up some old Vietnam-era sterotypes. Won't be buying another one of his books.

A great disappointment. 75% of the book is devoted to a complicated murder scenario with completely new characters. Only in the last 100 pages does Dismas Hardy appear as the appellate attorney, with his usual high power performance. and exciting intrigue. If you are a Lescroat fan this could be a good read, but as a Dismas Hardy fan, it wasn't worth the time to read.

It was like three separate books and three lifetimes for Evan. The way it is written really brings home the human element and the complexity of our system.

I am 165 pages into this book and sorely disappointed. I read this series for the Hardys and the Glitzkys and am not impressed by their minor roles in this book. I couldnt care less about the main characters focused on in this book. Too much money for this book for this level of disappointment.

The first few pages were alow for me -- too military. However, once I got past them, I was hooked. Overall, a most interesting read. I was disappointed, too, in the beginning, that my favorite Lescroart characters had a minor, almost nonexistent, role. I missed hearing from them. At some point that ceased to be important, and they did show up toward the end, making significant contributions.

The first two thirds of the book reads like a cheap, poorly written romance novel, complete with every cliche. Had it been any other author, I would have put the book down. I kept HOPING it would get better. Unfortunately, only about 150 pages remained before he got back to Dismas and Hardy.

This was the first book by John Lescroart that I've read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It kept me engaged during the entire book. Very believable characters and situations. I look forward to reading another one of his books.

This was a very interesting book. He portrays the ugly side of war. What it does to the people we have serving in any war area is not a very pretty thing to see or read about. This book will keep you going until the very end. I am looking forward to starting A plague of Secrets, his latest offering.
