Overview

The Suspect by John Lescroart, David Colacci

A MASTERFUL STORY OF CRIME AND JUSTICE IN SAN FRANCISCO

When Dr. Caryn Dryden is found floating dead in her hot tub, homicide inspector Devine Juhle targets a suspect close to home: her husband, Stuart Gorman. After all, Stuart recently asked for a divorce...and he stands to gain millions in insurance. His alibi—that he was at his cabin on Echo Lake that weekend—doesn't keep him out of hot water. But maybe a shrewd attorney will.

Gina Roake, a partner in Dismas Hardy's firm, is eager o take on such a high-profile case, especially when the client's innocence seems so easy to prove. Yet the more time she spends with Stuart, the more complicated her feelings become; she feels strangely drawn to him at first, then has to confront the possibility of a dark history lurking in his past. Desparate to know the truth, Gina calls in Wyatt Hunt to investigate. Before the facts are in, her client is on the lam; he's already been tried in the press, and so he's certain the courtroom won't bring him any mercy either. Racing to a stunning conclusion as Gina uncovers disturbing answers, John Lescroart spins a chilling story of secrets, love, and lies.

We have a new Harriet Klausner, her name is Gail Cooke. Wow, you saved us all some big bucks by reading your mini version of the book. Now why would I want to buy this book after reading your crappy version of the story. Aren't you cheating B&N of some sales. This is where B&N should.step in and end this nonsense.

I have read all of John Lescroart's books and this by far is the worst. Mr. Lescroart should stick with books featuring Dismas Hardy. If I had not known I was reading a book by John Lescroart, I would never have guessed it. The writing is very inferior to his other books.

This book took me a month to read-it did not hold my attention. The court room dialogue was the best part of the book but I would recommed trying others by the author first.

Since discovering Lescroat's books I've been a loyal reader. I've never been disappointed. Each new book strengthens my loyalty. This one begins with naivete of the innocent believing all is well when telling the truth. But, as always, the investigating mind always has pre-determined bias and investigative directions. In reflection, there were subtle hints missed along the way but that nagging back-of-the-mind uneasiness kept building.

The author really keeps you guessing until the end , most likely you will have missed the real culprit. The author is well established as a great writer and you will enjoy this book.

Excellent book to read over the weekend. Fun plot but easy to finish and enjoy.

In his last two novels JL has introduced 'or featured' new main characters with what amounts to cameo appearances of Dismas Hardy. Although the books are well written and the characters are good, I'm drawn to JL's novels for the characters I'm invested in.

First book I have read by this author, always thought he wrote more like John Grisham who is a little intense for me. But this book started out great and continued right to the end. Gina was such a likeable character, I rooted for her from the start. And poor Stuart trying to keep his family together. I wanted him aquitted even if he did do it, Caryn was just too self centered to live. Then there was Kymberly. I wanted to slap some good sense into that girl, who needed discipline in the worst way. The author certainly knew his characters and after the first 2 chapters so did we. This is right up there with my most favorite books and I'll be reading John for a long time.

John Lescroart comes through again with a thriller. I was all ready to read a continuation of the Hunt Club characters. I was happy to see that John developing new characters. I didn't know who the killer was until he was ready to unvail him.

This was a great book. It started out good and kept getting better. So many twists and surprises it kept me reading all night long, couldn't put it off. Even though I miss Dis Hardy, I look forward to reading more books about Gina. I'll be recommending The Suspect to my book club members.

The suspect, Stuart, lies so much by omission that I couldn't be sure who the killer was. Lescroart has done a great job of creating a 'seamless transition' between Dismas Hardy,Abe Glitsky and the new lawyer group that it seems much like the same familiar old law firm of the past.The story line is much more intense than I expected.Good job John!
