Description :  From<i> New York Times </i>bestselling author John Lescroart, a riveting novel featuring Dismas Hardy and Abe Glitsky on the hunt for clues about a woman who has gone missing.<br /><br />On the evening before Thanksgiving, Hal Chase, a guard in the San Francisco County Jail, drives to the airport to pick up his step-brother for the weekend. When they return, Hal’s wife, Katie, has disappeared without a clue.<br /><br />By the time Dismas Hardy hears about this, Katie has been missing for five days. The case strikes close to home because Katie had been seeing Hardy’s wife, a marriage counselor. By this time, the original Missing Persons case has become a suspected homicide, and Hal is the prime suspect. And the lawyer he wants for his defense is none other than Hardy himself.<br /><br />Hardy calls on his friend, former homicide detective Abe Glitsky, to look into the case. At first it seems like the police might have it right; the Chases’ marriage was fraught with problems; Hal’s alibi is suspect; the life insurance policy on Katie was huge. But Glitsky’s mission is to identify other possible suspects, and there proves to be no shortage of them: Patti Orosco—rich, beautiful, dangerous, and Hal’s former lover; the still unknown person who had a recent affair with Katie; even Hal’s own step-mother Ruth, resentful of Katie’s gatekeeping against her grandchildren. And as Glitsky probes further, he learns of an incident at the San Francisco jail, where Hal works—only one of many questionable inmate deaths that have taken place there. Then, when Katie’s body is found not three blocks from the Chase home, Homicide arrests Hal and he finds himself an inmate in the very jail where he used to work, a place full of secrets he knows all too well.<br /><br />Against this backdrop of conspiracy and corruption, ambiguous motives and suspicious alibis, an obsessed Glitsky closes in on the elusive truth. As other deaths begin to pile up he realizes, perhaps too late, that the next victim might be himself.

But did she fall…or was she pushed?<br /><br />Homicide inspectors focus their attention on a likeable but naïve middle school teacher and volunteer foster care advocate.

Description :  Crime, șantaj, minciuni, ambiții politice și secrete adânc îngropate – un nou caz al avocatului Dismas Hardy, care se luptă să-și salveze clienta de la ani grei de închisoare. Misiune mai mult decât dificilă, având în vedere că locotenentul Abe Glitsky, șeful departamentului de omucideri, este aproape în totalitate distras de accidentul băiatului său și, fără supravegherea lui, detectivii săi cad pradă mașinațiunilor politice.<br /> Dismas Hardy are de luptat nu numai cu obtuzitatea unor polițiști zeloși, cu îndârjirea oarbă a unui procuror și cu ostilitatea unui judecător, dar chiar și cu propria lui clientă, care preferă să fie condamnată decât să dezvăluie cumplitul secret care o apasă.<br /> Un thriller alert, bine închegat, care te ține cu sufletul la gură până la ultima pagină.
