Dismas Hardy, Book 15. By: John Lescroart. Narrated by: David Colacci. Length: 11 hrs and 35 mins.

In a multiple murder case plagued by lies and deception, there is one terrible secret that defense attorney Dismas Hardy is duty-bound to protect. Even if the price is his client's life.


When Dylan Vogler, the charming manager of the popular Bay Beans West coffee shop in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district, is gunned down near the store, inspectors are shocked to discover that his knapsack is overflowing with high-grade marijuana. It soon becomes clear that San Francisco's A-list flocked to Bay Beans West for more than a pricy caffeine fix.


Maya Townshend is the absentee owner of the shop―and the beautiful and extremely wealthy socialite niece of the city's mayor. When she becomes Dismas Hardy's client, he thinks it will be a simple hand-holding exercise until the police identify a suspect. But then another of Maya's past acquaintances turns up murdered, and the newspapers begin to reveal the names of the coffee shop's celebrity, political, and even law-enforcement clientele. Hardy begins to question how much his client knew about what was actually going on inside her business―and whether she was also Vogler's lover.


All the while Hardy's best friend, homicide lieutenant Abe Glitsky, sick with worry over his severely injured youngest child, barely functions at his job. Without his supervision, his inspectors are prey to the machinations of the many power brokers with interests in the case. Ambitious prosecutors close in on Maya, and as her trial gets under way, Hardy discovers that his client harbors an explosive secret. A secret that Dismas Hardy is privilege-bound to protect.


Perceptive, fast-paced, and masterfully plotted, A Plague of Secrets represents John Lescroart working at the absolute top of his game.

Get ready to stay up all night! John Lescroart's newest entry into the Dismas Hardy series is full of plot twists, political ambition and heart pounding courtroom scenes.

The book opens with Harlen Fisk, a reoccuring character who is a county supervisor, asking Dismas if he would take a call from his sister, Maya Townshend. It seems that the manager of her coffee house was murdered, and Maya might be in the sights of the police. Another murder later, and Maya is arrested. Dismas once again has to defend a complicated murder trial, in which the defendant is facing life in prison, without the possibility of parole.

The courtroom scenes are realistic, and the portrayal of a pro prosecution judge made my blood pressure rise! Throw in a ladder climbing Federal Prosecutor, and it's enough to give anyone a headache.

Abe Glitsky, Dismas' long time friend and lieutenant in the police dept, is dealing with his own heartbreaking personal problems, when his young son is in a tragic accident. Without Glitsky's supervision, two cops under his command are a little too eager to rush to judgement about Maya, and the drama that unfolds kept my heart pounding, right until the shocking climax of the story.

I personally think this is one of Lescroart's best entries into the series, and I can't wait for the next one!

To find that John Lescroart has written another novel featuring Dismas Hardy is always a pleasure. Reading it is more so.

What starts out as a casual call to Hardy from a friend to counsel his sister who has been interviewed by the police due to one of her employees being murdered, turns as serious as a heart attack when the investigating officers jump to some conclusions and go somewhat off the reservation in pursuit of murder convictions against the lady.

Abe Glitsky, SFPD detective and supervisor of the officers is distracted by a serious injury that has befallen his son which he blames himself for. This permiits his officers to engage in some police work which is questionable at best and actionable at worst.

Using a zealous federal prosecutor to stir up potential witnesses in their case further compounds the difficulties for Hardy's client, Maya Townsend who is married to a veritable money machine, politically connected and troubled by events from her past while a student at USF.

In what seems like no time, Maya has gone from a fringe witness in the murder of her employee to the star defendant in a double murder trial which is being presided over by the judge from Hell. Hardy believes that Townsend is hiding some deep secret about her past and has his own doubts about her innocence as he tries to defend her while Maya's future looks more and more tenuous as the trial unfolds.

Lescroart is a master of this type of story and the passage of time has done nothing to diminish his skills in weaving a scenario which keeps the reader turning the pages until late into the night. If you are already a fan, you will continue your enjoyment. If this is your first Lescroart novel, you are about to have a world of reading opened to you.

The plot line of this book has been well described, so I won't repeat it. I thought the plot was complex, but well developed and never confusing. The characters of Dismas Hardy and Abe Glitsky are fantastic and I love their relationship. I definitely feel that Lescroart's writing has improved over the years and that this book was very well written. I usually am able to figure out "who done it" with his novels, but not with this one. The main characters were well developed and the relationships explained well considering that there were many different people related to one another in many different ways. The dialogue was clever, at times funny, and always true to its character. "A Plague Of Secrets" is truly a page turner that is enjoyable from beginning to end.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lots of drama. Abe Glitzy s son is hit by a car, and there's a murder behind a coffee shot. And so it begins and keeps going. A shock ending, just a really good book
