The Ophelia Cut (Dismas Hardy Series #14) by John Lescroart, David Colacci

In this riveting New York Times bestselling novel from the “master of the legal thriller” (Chicago Sun-Times) John Lescroart, defense attorney Dismas Hardy tackles his most personal and complex case yet—defending his brother-in-law against murder charges.

New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart’s most beloved protagonist returns to face the most personal case of his career in a masterful novel that showcases all of this author’s extraordinary storytelling skills.

When Moses McGuire becomes the prime suspect in the murder of his own daughter’s rapist, attorney Dismas Hardy- Moses’s brother-in-law- agrees to defend him. But McGuire has fallen off the wagon, and his stay in prison could bring to light old secrets that would destroy Hardy and his closest colleagues’ careers. As the overwhelming evidence against McGuire piles up, Hardy focuses on planting doubt in the minds of the jurors- until, in a feat of legal ingenuity that is staggering in both its implications and its simplicity, he sees a new way forward that might just save them all. But at what price?

I have always loved every book I've read by Lescroart, but this one was slow and boring. Tedious read. I finally gave up and put the book away when I was a little more than halfway through. Too much verbage that accomplished little. Skip this one.

I love books by this author ... except this one. When an author ruminates to the extent this one does, you know you're in trouble. Usually, his books are wonderful but not this one.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND! This books starts slow you have to force yourself to continue and the ending leaves you up in the air. Do not wast your money

John Lescoart's Dismas Hardy/Abe Glitsky legal thrillers are the best in the genre. Nobody creates characters better than John Lescroat. The Ophelia Cut was a great novel. It was so fun to re-engage with Dismas, Abe, Wyatt, Gina, Frannie and all the great characters from novel's past. As usual the plot was thrilling with some great courtroom drama and challenging dilemmas for the characters. I can't believe people gave this great book a "1" rating. Buy it now. You won't be sorry.

After waiting four years for another Dismas Hardy book, I was eager to dive into The Ophelia Cut. It enthralled me and kept me up many hours past my bedtime for several nights. Unfortunately I did find some of the plot much less tightly woven than his usual thrilling novels. The ending was extremely disappointing and left me wondering "wait a minute, what just happened here. Did I miss something?" Now I guess I will have to wait another four years to figure out what really happened and by then I will probably have forgotten all of the characters!

I enjoyed the book, especially the courtroom cenes. I especially like the fa t that the characters seem like real, fallible human beings. I hope their will be more Dismas Hardy books.

I sorely wish that I had realized that there were thirteen previous books in the Dismas Hardy series before I agreed to review this thriller. I have never read a John Lescroart novel and I now know I've been missing out for many years. I will be giving this legal thriller four stars not because I personally enjoyed it that much but because I'm sure if I had had the back story I would have loved it at least that much. I will now be going back and starting with the Hardy book #1 and hoping that svn though I've read #14 that I'll still enjoy the ride. Because I am not already a fan of Lescroart's spectacularly written characters I found that I felt I was slogging through the first half of the book because of all the backstory I had to read. As I've found with my favorite authors, as a fan, I love all the little details from all the other books when a new story comes out. I cherish every word I get to read every time there's a new novel to devour. Because I'm not yet a rabid fan of this author I didn't get that joyous feeling with all the necessary details, I just felt tired. This was my own fault, my own doing, not the fault of the author at all. I love a good legal thriller and because I find that many of the best of them are thrilling because of the way the story line plays out I will not be giving away any details of this story. I might give a hint away that will lesson your enjoyment of the ride and I'd hate to do that for a fan. I relish every moment with a great author which I can heartily tell Lescroart is. I urge you to read this novel if you're already a fan of this author but like me, if you have the privilege of reading from the start of this series I beg you to begin with me and soak yourself in a spectacular series. I know fans of Lescroart will be jealous of us, we get to read these books for the first time. I know that's how I feel about new readers of my favorite authors. I yearn to be ignorant of the story again so I can revel in the best an author can give. I'm betting the Hardy series will be just that kind of awesome.

I am always anxious to read a new John Lescroart novel, but this one let me down a bit. As usual, it was well written, but the plot dragged. Blind alleys are good in suspense novels, but this one kept going back to the same alley. The two cousins were necessary to the story, but too much time was spent on their mixed up love lives. Was the whole thing with the witness protected cop necessary? I had most of it figured before the end, except for the revenge seeking mom. One not familiar with the Dismas Hardy novels could easily get lost in the spider web of relations and relationships.

'Dis' Hardy stories are involved, have lots of character conflicts, and twists in the narrative, but are very satisfying as they are well thought out.
