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.
