I made the mistake of setting Poison by John Lescroart aside with 4 hours left this morning to listen to Scott Pratt's Justice Lost which was released today. When I completed Justice Lost I returned to Poison and completed it; comparing the two legal thrillers is unavoidable. Lescroart's Poison suffers from the comparison. I have read or listened to many John Lescroart legal thrillers. Poison just-take-a nap boring. Justice Lost is a tightly written novel with an interesting plot and great narration. Poison is a sloppily written excessively wordy novel. Narration by Jacques Roy is mostly disinterested monotone. My advice is to skip this one; I wish I had.

Lescroart delivers again! I have read (or listened to) every Dismas Hardy look by Lescroart. It has been a privilege & honor to follow him with all his quirks of character & wry sensibilities for his entire adult life. Is this the end? Hardy solves one final case. All the favorite characters _ now older too are featured, Franny, Abe Glitzkey. Wes Farrell, “ the (fully grown “Beck”, Facebook-employed Vincent. Such a satisfying read. While David Colache will remain my favorite narrator of the Hardy series, this new reader is also superb. Great plot, great writing, great performance. Please don’t let this be the end.
