Publisher's Summary

When the bullet-ridden body of a Silicon Valley billionaire washes up on shore, assistant D.A. Dismas Hardy finds himself the prosecutor in San Francisco's murder trial of the century. The suspect: a Japanese call girl with a long list of prominent clients. But when a bizarre series of events blows the case wide open, Hardy finds himself on the other side of the law - as a lawyer for the defense.

Got My Money's Worth But...


This is my second try at a Lescroart adventure. Like trials? This book's got a couple of 'em. Like nasty curves? There are more here than NASCAR's Darlington Raceway's got. I liked it but...

I'm not sure who Dismas Hardy's supposed to be. Maybe thats the point and the guy's a major work in progress? That's what I thought after reading his "Dead Irish". Frankly "Hard Evidence" is like that book... you know, like drinking last-night's beer the morning-after popping the top. Will future Hardy novels get effervescent? Even though David Colacci's doing his best, do I want to pay to find out?

Um... nope.

good book

This was a good book. good characters that are well developed . A decent and believable plot and nice pacing. this is the first book in the dismas hardy series ( first in the courtroom series) there are two other books before this one were he is a bartender. But the author does a good job at catching you up in the series. Worth the money or credits.
