Read an Excerpt

At about eight-ten on an unusually hot and sultry evening a couple of weeks before the Fourth of July, Michael Mullen, a thirty-nine-year-old white accountant with a wife and three children all under eight, stopped his new black Honda Prelude at the corner of 19th and Dolores in the outer Noe Valley District of San Francisco.  Dolores is a divided street with a wide grassy area occasionally pocked with trees between the north and south lanes.

This story seemed so real. A crowd of drunks causing a riot and the whole story becomes racial. It's very interesting how the politicians get involved and make decisions to look good and get votes. Some big surprises in the ending. I enjoy the same characters in many of Lescroart's books and his writing style.

This is either part of the Dismas Hardy series or part of a separate Abe Glitsky series, depending on your source. I really enjoyed this book. Hardy hardly appears in it at all, so you really get to know Abe Glitsky. The "fugitives" are also very likable characters.I mostly had it figured out by the end (which I don't mind), but I forgot that I already knew about one of the twists from later books.
