Suddenly Jennifer Witt was in jail, facing the death penalty. Jennifer insisted that she had not killed her abusive husband -- and she could never have killed her own son.
Dismas Hardy believed her. But Hardy was only part of the defense team, and the only lawyer who continued to believe her Now there's only one thing Jennifer can do to save her life So Hardy must do it for her. And in a shocking case of violence, betrayal, and lies, his only weapon is the truth The 13th Juror When innocence is not enough. Lescroart's new suspense trial novel and put it down This one is on the money.
The power of the book lies in Lescroart's impeccable accumulation of detail. Lescroart produces a full house of well-drawn characters. The many subplots, social issues and legal maneuvers of The 13th Juror , come together in a fast-paced text that sustains interest to the very end. Weekday mornings John Lescroart less'-kwah drives to his Davis, California office.
There, on the top floor of a wood frame building sandwiched between two rambling fraternity houses, he devotes seven concentrated hours to his novel-in-progress. An evening with his wife and their two children, a dinner he enjoys cooking. Later the Lescroarts pile in the car for their children's many activities. Weekends find Lescroart entertaining friends and sometimes playing baseball, softball, golf, perhaps fishing.
The balanced lifestyle Lescroart resolutely maintains while directing his career as an internationally bestselling author would be the envy of the characters in his compelling novels--novels such as A Certain Justice , The 13th Juror , and The Mercy Rule. For while Lescroart delivers page-turning suspenseful action that has drawn starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and praise from Larry King, People magazine , the Wall Street Journal and many others, what distinguishes the author's engrossing reads is something more difficult to create.
That something is a study of characters under pressure, characters who haven't achieved the balance John maintains in his life. They are characters whose value systems find them fighting an ongoing battle between demands of the job as they seek justice in the courtroom and in the station house and the insistent needs of their families.
