John Lescroarts millions of fans have been waiting three years for the return of San Francisco defense attorney Dismas Hardy and his buddy, detective Abe Glitsky and in that time Lescroarts popularity has continued to soar. Now, with Betrayal, Hardy and Glitsky appear again in a story filled with the big themes that are worthy of them the intersection of love, betrayal, and national secrets. 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: Nolans relationship with Evans girlfriend, Tara, a beautiful schoolteacher back home in the states, followed by a deadly incident in which Nolans apparent mistake results in the death of an innocent Iraqi family as well as seven men in Evans 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 not only John Lescroarts most ambitious and provocative novel, it is a magnificent tour de force of pure storytelling.
