John Lescroart frequently builds his stories around a burning issue of the day. In the case of "The Mercy Rule," he addresses assisted suicide -- which, although "The Mercy Rule" was written back in 1998, remains a burning issue today. Throughout the audiobook, most of the characters are assuming that Graham Russo assisted in his father's suicide; sparking a lively debate in the media, and causing the listener to contemplate the issue. In fact, John Lescroart ALWAYS makes us think when we listen to his novels. David Colacci provides the perfect, versatile voice for narrating this story. A few details date these older Lescroart novels -- like, for instance, the novelty of cell phones and the relatively primitive stage of personal computers back in those days -- but, otherwise, they continue to intrigue and inspire. I would recommend "The Mercy Rule" to all fans of carefully-crafted legal thrillers.
