Descrizione

When Dismas Hardy agrees to clean up the caseload of recently disappeared attorney Charlie Bowen, he thinks it will be easy. But one of the cases is far from small-time-the appeal to overturn the murder conviction of National Guard reservist Evan Scholler, who has been sentenced to life without parole for the murder of an ex-Navy SEAL and private contractor named Ron Nolan. Two rapid-fire events in Iraq conspired to bring the men into fatal conflict: Nolan's relationship with Evan's girlfriend, Tara, a beautiful schoolteacher back home in the States, followed by a deadly incident in which Nolan's apparent mistake results in the death of an innocent Iraqi family as well as seven men in Evan's platoon. As the murky relationship between the U.S. government and its private contractors plays out in the personal drama of these two men, and the consequences for Evan become a desperate matter of life and death, Dismas Hardy begins to uncover a terrible and perilous truth that takes him far beyond the case and into the realm of assassination and treason.

From the treacherous streets of Iraq to the courtrooms of California, Betrayal is a magnificent tour de force of pure storytelling.

    I keep listening to Lescroart, trying to find another book in the series as good as The Motive. The back story for the book was just so-so, but I liked the Glitsky/Hardy part. There was too much of the back story and not enough of the odd duo. Took me a few tries to get into it.

    A new approach to the Dismas Hardy - Abe Glitzky series, more than one half of the book does not involve the two characters but instead establishes the story of a soldier in Iraq and back in the Bay area.As with all of Lescroart's books, this proved a fast and entertaining read.

    An interesting change, without changing too much: Lescroat concentrates on the stories of the people who will eventually be defended by Dismas Hardy. In other words, it centers around new characters without leaving the familiar characters out completely.The comments on the war in Iraq struck me as biased, as can be expected from a San Franciscan.
