Publisher Description

From New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart, “the master of the legal thriller” (Chicago Sun-Times), comes this riveting suspense novel featuring fan-favorite Dismas Hardy and detective Abe Glitsky on the hunt for clues about a missing woman.

On the evening before Thanksgiving, Hal Chase, a guard in the San Francisco County Jail, drives to the airport to pick up his stepbrother for the weekend. When they return, Hal’s wife, Katie, has disappeared without a clue.

By the time Dismas Hardy hears about this, Katie has been missing for five days and the original Missing Persons case has become a suspected homicide—with Hal as the prime suspect. And the lawyer he wants for his defense is none other than Hardy himself.

Hardy calls on his friend, former homicide detective Abe Glitsky, to look into the case, and there proves to be no shortage of possible suspects aside from Hal. As he probes further, Glitsky learns of an incident at the San Francisco jail, where Hal works—only one of many questionable inmate deaths that have taken place there. Then, as more clues surface, Hal is arrested and finds himself an inmate in the very jail where he used to work, a place full of secrets he knows all too well.

Against this backdrop of conspiracy and corruption, ambiguous motives and suspicious alibis, an obsessed Glitsky closes in on the elusive truth. As other deaths begin to pile up he realizes, perhaps too late, that the next victim might be himself.

The Keeper

Possibly his best work ever, I has no clue until the last chapter.

Careful … you might learn something!

Glitsky takes the lead in this book. Does such a good job that you (personally) learn from his analytical skills to solve matters in your own life. Masterfully educational!

Outstanding!!

I'm so glad I rediscovered John Lescroart and his series featuring D Hardy and A Glitsky. Lescroart is an excellent writer of compelling yet believable mysteries with interesting characters.
