Repeat New York Times bestseller John Lescroart returns with his latest gripping San Francisco legal thriller featuring Dismas Hardy - perfect for fans of John Grisham and Michael Connelly
From John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of THE OPHELIA CUT and THE KEEPER, comes THE FALL - the riveting new legal thriller featuring Dismas Hardy and introducing his daughter Rebecca.
Late one night, fostered teen Anlya Paulson plummets to her death from the overpass above San Francisco's Stockton tunnel.
But did she fall...or was she pushed?
Pushed to find a suspect, homicide inspectors focus on naive school teacher Greg Treadway, who volunteers as a Special Advocate for foster children. But by the time Greg's murder trial is underway, lawyer Dismas Hardy and his daughter, Rebecca, have unearthed some alternative harrowing possibilities: a missing stepfather, a roommate who ran an escort service, and Anlya's own birth mother.
How will they get these theories in front of the jury?
And, if they can, what price will they have to pay?
