Professional reviews

"San Francisco police detective Beth Tully, a single mom, tackles a complicated murder case in Lescroart's latest thriller. Narrator Jacques Roy's clear voice and expert pacing will keep listeners engaged with the serpentine mystery. The murder victim is Peter Ash, a successful attorney who recently left his family after a series of affairs. Also entangled in the case is Beth's best friend, Kate Jameson, who is happily married, aside from a brief dalliance with Ash a few months earlier. Could she be a suspect? Roy's subtle approach and impressive vocal range make for seamless listening as the story jumps between the police investigation, domestic betrayal, and forays into Beth's personal life.
