The Thirteenth Juror (Dismas Hardy series, book 4): An unputdownable thriller of violence, betrayal and lies

John Lescroart

5 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Thriller / suspense

Lawyer Dismas Hardy returns in The Thirteenth Juror by master storyteller John Lescroart, in what has been described by Lee Child as 'Today's best legal series'.

Dismas Hardy, lawyer/investigator, undertakes the defense of Jennifer Witt, accused of murdering her husband and their eight-year-old son as well as her first husband, who had died nine years earlier from an apparent drug overdose.

While preparing his case, Hardy learns that both of Jennifer's husbands had physically abused her. But Jennifer refuses to allow a defense that presumes her guilt. She is not guilty, she claims. Hardy is now driven to seek an alternative truth a jury can believe. As the trial progresses, the complex truth itself begins to change, to bend, to fade in and out of focus as the clock keeps ticking on Jennifer's fate, until there seems only one person left to convince, and she is "the 13th juror"--the judge. The 13th Juror is a stunning and suspenseful novel of moral ambiguity, of good intentions, bad judgements and the tortuous path to ultimate justice.
