A collection of three Dismas Hardy classics by master storyteller John Lescroart, in what has been described by Lee Child as 'Today's best legal series'.
THE FIRST LAW: An elderly shop owner is found dead. Glitsky is hitting brick walls as he tries to get help from homicide, while Hardy finds himself defending a friend who's been accused of the death. Blocked at every turn, Hardy and Glitsky are forced to protect themselves, as well as their nearest and dearest, as they step into a world where the only law is survival...
THE SECOND CHAIR: Hardy has a high-profile and challenging case: a seventeen-year-old arrested for the double slaying of his girlfriend and his teacher. With little belief in his client's innocence, and even less in the legal system, Hardy has to conquer his own demons if he is to clear his client...and save himself.
THE MOTIVE: Glitsky is thrust into a controversial double homicide investigation. Convinced the officer has the wrong suspect - Hardy's old girlfriend - he breaks ranks to continue his own investigation. And so begins a search that reveals a trail of deception that leads beyond San Francisco, where exposing secrets can be the most deadly offence...
