Another good story from John Lescroart for all his Diz Hardy and Abe Glitsky fans, set in beautiful San Francisco. The wait between books is always worth it. This one has a good plot, lots of courtroom dramatics, and a STUNNING ending. What more could a fan ask for? It's one for the permanent library.

Mr. Lescroart has written another great Dismas Hardy book. His writing style is crisp and to the point, not a lot of extraneous descriptions that are unnecessary to telling the story. As always, I am looking forward to his next book.

This is the first John Lescroart book I've read. Pretty Good. An exciting and surprising conclusion. I read it in one weekend, and found it an exciting page turner. I would recommend it as a good summer "shade tree" read.

John Lescroart has spun a tight tale of murder and lies, fully compelling in its characters traveling the streets of San Francisco. The courtroom scenes are top notch, but I think he got pretty carried away at the ending. It didn't spoil the tale, but it did prevent his conclusion from being as good as the main story.

If you listened to The Vig, Betrayal, or any number of Lescroart's other thrillers narrated by Colacci you know what a terrific voice performer he is. I called his reading of Second Chair "Vital and arresting" - the same holds true of A Plague of Secrets. What a good move it is to continue to pair the same accomplished reader with succeeding stories in a series. That person becomes so ingrained in listeners' minds (or ears) as a particular character that, for me, the battle for a sale is half won. Such is certainly the case with Colacci and Dismas Hardy. Can't have one without the other and wouldn't want it any other way. Lescroart continues to intrigue with seemingly endless plot variations and imaginative twists. Here, with his 13th thriller we meet a mysterious woman - Maya Townsend. Of course, she's gorgeous, well connected (her uncle is the mayor) and silent partner in a popular San Francisco hangout - the Bay Beans West Coffee Shop. However, there seems to have been a lot more than latte offered there. The manager of the shop, Danny Vogel, is shot to death, and a quantity of marijuana is found in his knapsack. Slight problem: the murder weapon was Maya's. Next another friend of hers is found dead - this time with a cleaver separating his skull and Maya's fingerprints are found in his apartment. It's not long before we discover that the two recently departed had been blackmailing Maya for something that is past history but could still send shock waves through the city. She has hired Dismas to help her, which turns out to be more of a challenge than he had realized as prosecutors go for broke at her trial. So, we have murders, legal shenanigans, and a beautiful enigmatic woman - enjoy! - Gail Cooke

Never read John Lescroart before, but I am a long time fan of John Grisham. While the styles are not exactly the same, the legal thriller is something I really enjoy. I will be reading more of Mr. Lescroart going forward. An excellent read.

As usual he does a great job. His stories never get stale. Not that his style is like them but his books are like Parker & Mickey Spilane just good fun to read

I've just finished reading the above referenced book.It held my interest to the point I was late for my office managerial position because i couldn't stop reading the book until the last page. It was sensational! Mr. Lescroart, Thank you for exciting moments as you never fail to hold my interest with your anticlimactic endings. The charaters in this book were very clearly brought out and the plot was riveting. wWthout giving the plot away, I was literally at the edge of my seat at the end, reading the action that took place in the Courtroon Whew! I await your next book with exciting anticipation...You are one of my favoarite mystery writers along with others such as Flynn, Crais, Margolin, Katzenbach, Tanenbaum, W.E.B Griffin, Martini, etc. Enjoyment of a mystery experience is achieved by picking up any one of your books... But as an avid fan, I highly recomment a Plague of Secrets to everyone who enjoys a good mystery.Julie De Chiara.

Another entertaining beek in the Dismas Hardy series. I love the characters in this series, and while this book is still entertaining, it is not quite as good as others in the series.
