On the heels of The Hunt Clubï¿½his biggest bestseller to dateï¿½John Lescroart weaves a new story of crime and justice in San Francisco that will keep pages turning and readers guessing from start to dizzying finish.
When Dr. Caryn Dryden is found floating dead in her hot tub, homicide inspector Devin Juhle targets a suspect close to home: her husband, Stuart Gorman. After all, Stuart was recently asked for a divorce . . . and he stands to gain millions in insurance. His alibiï¿½that he was at his cabin on Tamarack Lake that weekendï¿½doesnï¿½t keep him out of hot water. But maybe a shrewd attorney will.
Gina Roake, a partner in Dismas Hardyï¿½s firm, is eager to take on such a high-profile case, especially when the clientï¿½s innocence seems so easy to prove. Yet the more time she spends with Stuart, the more complicated her feelings become; she feels strangely drawn to him at first, then has to confront the possibility of a dark history lurking in his past. Desperate to know the truth, Gina calls in Wyatt Hunt to investigate. Before the facts are in, her client is on the lam; heï¿½s already been tried in the press, and so heï¿½s certain the courtroom wonï¿½t bring him any mercy either. Racing to a stunning conclusion as Gina uncovers disturbing answers, The Suspect is a chilling story of secrets, love, and lies.
Building on The Hunt Clubï¿½s phenomenal success, The Suspect showcases the writing of a master of suspense at the height of his art.
