    Poison

    So enjoyed this book- Diz is like an old friend and it was wonderful to hear his voice. Would like a story on a tough case where Diz is in court like in the old days....maybe in the next book? ;)

    Tense mystery

    Thank you to Atria Books and NetGalley for providing me with an e-copy of Poison by John Lescroart in exchange for an honest review. This novel is the 17th installment about attorney Dismas Hardy, which attests to the popularity of the legal genre in general and John Lescroart in particular. Hardy is approaching retirement and recuperating from a gunshot wound when he is approached by Abby Jarvis, a former client who has been arrested for the murder of Grant Carver, her boss and lover. The adult Carver children all work for the family business and all have something to gain from the death of the patriarch. Abby stands to financially gain as well, which has led to her arrest. What follows are more murders, deceptions and intrigue which could put Hardy and his family at risk. Poison maintains the reader's interest throughout and is a tense but enjoyable read.

    Perfectly in tune with the story.

    The story flows from start to finish.Using a poison as the means to kill the family head got the story flowing.A great read.

    A high 5 star rating for John Lescroart!

    How in the world is it that I have never read a novel by John Lescroart? Poison, the 17th book in the Dismas Hardy series was an unbelievable ride! The series, which rotates around attorney Hardy, is a legal thriller by name but is so much more. I had to catch up with many characters in the series through this single book, and managed, as well as thoroughly enjoyed the book, but I do think it would be beneficial to start at the beginning and work your way through them in order. There were many references throughout the story that I imagine were probably parts of previous books, and while it didn’t ruddy the reading experience, and even gave me glimpses into some of the past stories that may be of interest, it almost made me feel like I was reading a brief spoiler of what may be to come if I go back and read the earlier books in the series. Dismas Hardy has had a long run of things and is considering slowing down. He has been shot on a previous cases and is getting up in age. Unfortunately for him, an old client has been arrested on suspicion of murder, and he feels an obligation to take on her case, against his better judgement. He soon finds himself in the midst of a dangerous game of cat and mouse, while trying to prove his client’s innocence. Abby Jarvis, a bookkeeper who has a history of manslaughter has been picked up under suspicion of killing her boss Grant Carver, a well known, and well off business man. Upon looking into the murder, investigators found Abby had been skimming money from the business, putting her as the primary suspect. In addition to following the legal aspect of the case, the book closely follows the homicide detectives as they knock on doors and try to solve the case. It had a real Law and Order feel with so many perspectives at play and I found myself pouring through the pages completely immersed in the family secrets, investigative research, unexpected twists, courtroom drama and web of lies. I really connected to Hardy and how invested he became in his case. I am so looking forward to starting at the beginning of his journey and devouring all the books in this series. A high 5 star rating for John Lescroart!
