Having read and enjoyed Lescroart's more recent novels featuring Dismas Hardy and Abe Glisky, I went back in search of some of his earlier works. I picked up "The Hearing" in hopes of getting some vintage Lescroart. I was not disappointed. In fact, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lescroart built his usual compelling, page-turning work. For me though, taking this out of order allowed for Lescroart's introduction of a number of characters that I grew to know in subsequent books. This certainly was an unexpected added dimension and source of enjoyment as I went quickly through the book. As might be expected, Lescroart does a great job of bringing out raw human emotion in the characters in a way that adds complexity and depth to the story. All in all, I'm very glad I went back to "The Hearing". It was well worth the time.

The call comes at midnight. It looks like a tragic and petty murder-a rising star in San Francisco's legal firmament found shot in a dark alley. But for homicide lieutenant Abe Glitsky, the crime cuts horribly close to home-unknown to anyone, the victim was his daughter. Seething, Glitsky leans hard on his only suspect-a homeless heroin addict found lingering over his daughter's body, with her jewelry in his pocket and a smoking gun in his hand.

Overall a good book, it has kind of a slow start to get into, but Lescroart does not disappoint and the last 200 pages goes amazingly quickly!

Book #9 - The only problem with reading John Lescoart is that he doesn't write fast enough!
Marvelous!

LA Times said it well "The heroes are engaging, the foes are threatening, and the legal background and the law are well served." If you like Grisham, ypu'll like Lescroart.

Another sterling effort by Baldacci. There were not a lot of potential suspects in this book,yet I was kept guessing (wrongly) till the final pages. Good effort.

The books by this author are thrillers. I've read 3 of his books and I haven't been disappointed yet.
