Amazon Exclusive: Steve Berry Reviews A Plague of Secrets
Steve Berry is the New York Times bestselling author of international suspense thrillers, The Venetian Betrayal, The Alexandria Link, The Amber Room, The Templar Legacy, The Romanov Prophecy and The Third Secret. His latest novel is The Charlemagne Pursuit.
John Lescroart is a master at building worlds. Over the course of his many novels, he’s created a supple, elegant theater of San Francisco, populating it with an entourage of fascinating people.
At the top of that list is former-policeman, now defense lawyer, Dismas Hardy. Next is Hardy’s close friend, Abe Glitsky, of the San Francisco Police Department. A few books back in the series (The Hunt Club) we met Wyatt Hunt, a local private detective.
A Plague of Secrets brings these three personalities together again when Dylan Vogler, the manager of a coffee shop in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district, is found dead cradling a knapsack full of marijuana. When Hardy learns that Vogler is actually supplying dope to many of San Francisco’s business and political elite, the tension and turmoil ratchet up into high-stakes suspense. Add in a murder charge that Hardy is called upon to defend, and Lescroart’s feisty, devil-may-care hero is once again thrust into the epicenter of a raging legal hurricane. The book’s title says it all. There is indeed a plague of secrets, one in particular that Hardy becomes legally bound to protect.
Through tight prose, surgical plotting, and relentless pacing, Lescroart offers more of his unadorned reality, expertly exploring the seamier side of law, politics, ethics, and morality.
A Plague of Secrets is lush and lusty, fascinating and smart, told in a wry, appealing voice. I’m often asked if I will ever write a legal thriller. Maybe. Who knows? But if I ever do I hope it’s half as good as one of John Lescroart’s. He’s in the top echelon of thriller masters. I’ve been a fan for a long time (don’t tell him, okay?). Guilt is one of my all time favorite books. A Plague of Secrets is a prize to be savored—another of John Lescroart’s beguiling and entertaining romps.
John Lescroart is the New York Times bestselling author of nineteen previous novels, including Betrayal, The Suspect, The Hunt Club, and The Motive.
