John Lescroart The Hearing The third book in the Abe Glitsky series, 1999 The legal world created in my books owes whatever verisimilitude it has to the rigorous oversight and unfailing intellect of my great friend and true.

Without him, the legal stuff which is the foundation for this (and my other) novels would often be inexact, stupid, or just plain wrong.

He lives in Northern California.

Qumen
I ilke John Lescoart's writing. I'm an attorney; I live in San Francisco, and I know Al Gianinini, Mr. Lescroart's source for legal issues. But even if none of that applied, I'd still like his writing. Abe Glitsky is a complicated character, the son of a Caucasian Jew and an African American woman. He is smart; moral; and a good cop. Dismas Hardy is a hard working attorney with a rich family life and a desire for justice. He's best friends with Lt. Glitsky. In this case, Glitsky's daughter is murdered. He never acknowledged to this woman that he was her father, and although she knew, she never confronted him. She goes back to an earlier book involving her mother and Glitsky, and is a book where Dismas only has a cameo appearance, and the protagonist is Abe. It gives context to this book. The story is one that is a lesson for people who think all people charged with crimes are guilty, when they confess to the crime; hold the crime weapon in their possession; and are caught at the scene. All this was true of the defendant in this case, a drunk heroin addict. However, the story shows that proper investigation can divulge information to show that what appears as clear as can be, is a mirage that holds no substance. I've had cases like this, and know what an uphill battle it is to win them.
The story is fast paced with lots of twists and turns. It's enjoyable from cover to cover. And the best thing is that Mr. Lescroart has been prolific, and you have lots of good books that continue to showcase the characters you learn to love. Check it out.

The story starts with Cole Burgess stooped over a woman's body, gun in hand, tearing off her jewelry, so you know right away that he didn't do it. Abe Glisky of homicide wants the suspect sweated and made to confess because the victim is his illegitimate daughter, although he hadn't know this for many years. His best friend, defense lawyer Dismas Hardy, didn't want to take the case because of Glisky, so you knew that he would eventually take the case. The story proceeds in a very interesting way, bringing in the DA, Sharon Pratt and her assistant and lover, Gabriel Torrey, neither of which are particularly likable characters. There are some side stories, such as the development of the relationship of the widower Glisky and the victim's paralegal Treya Ghent, which is very sweet. The book moves along quickly as the story unfolds and you discover exactly who did what and why.
It is well written, keeps your interest and brings everything together in the end. I would say that aside from a bit of overdramatic courtroom drama at the end that looked like it was written for an episode of Law and Order, it is an excellent read. This is my first Lescroart book and I am motivated to read more from him.

Dismas Hardy is not going to get drawn into representing the accused killer of Elaine Wager (Cole Burgess). Well, only because his sister asks, he will make sure that the man who was found standing over the dead body of Ms. Wagner with the murder weapon in his hand and her jewelry in his pockets, gets proper tratment in the lockup as he deals with his drug addiction. But that's all.
As he looks into the matter he discovers his good friend, Police Lt. Abe Glitsky taking unusually questionable contitutional liberties with Mr. Burgess's interrogation and incarceration. Then the San Francisco District Attorney, Sharon Pratt, who's administration has been known for it's inability to get convictions (all the good prosecutors resigned) and it's "humane" treatment of criminals it considers to be victims of society decides to ask for the death penalty. Of course, it is an election year and Ms. Pratt's re-election chances are tenuous at best.
We learn early on that the murder victim is in fact, Abe Glitsky's daughter (her mother married another man while pregant by Glitsky). The helps explain his uncharacteristic behavior.
After viewing a "confession" that the police sweat out of Cole, Glitsky starts to wonder if they have the real killer and from that concern, the story unwinds toward "The Hearing". Hardy signs on for the duration and picks up considerable help along the way. Lescroart is at his best during the trial scenes and the reader somewhat impatiently waits for the story to unravel, which it surely does in a most satisfying way when court is in session. Lecroart has never failed to please his readers.

"The Hearing" involves a case that never gets to trial and you know it won't make it all the way to a jury almost from the opening sentence. This one didn't have the legal BANG you usually get from a John Lescroart legal thriller. I still find Dismis Hardy and his half-black-half-Jewish police officer friend intriguing characters and will continue reading Mr. Lescroart. I can only say he's written far better novels than this particular one.

The portion of his books that Lescroat to the personal lives of his characters are over long and by and large uninteresting. As he moves toward the end of his books and the twists occupy a greater part of the narrative, the pace quickens and becomes more enjoyable. My four star rating only refers to this portion. The balance is a 3 star at best
POFOD
This series is good. I've been ready one after another. The writer just carries you along. I think there are 16 books in the series and I've read 11. I guess that will tell you what I think.

His books have great characters in a beautiful City that serves as a character as well. I love these characters, and their hometown, which is also mine. His plots are tightly wound and hard to figure out before the end which makes them wonderful reads.
