In 2010 I became a huge fan of John Lescroart. After my Mom died in August 2009, her housemate sent me several Lescroart novels in Mom’s book collection. I started reading them in 2010, and am hooked! Lescroart’s main characters Dismas Hardy and Abe Glitsky are unforgettable, as are many of the secondary characters. Lescroart is a master at plotting.
I recommend Lescroart’s novels very highly. My favorites are The First Law (2003) and Betrayal (2008). However, read the novels in order!
