He is obsessed with her innocence. He will be destroyed by her guilt.
The walls were champagne. The house was immaculate. A prosperous doctor lived there with his son and his beautiful wife. But the elegant walls hid a family's secret, a wife's shame. And one day shots rang out in the doctor's house. Suddenly Jennifer Witt was in jail, facing the death penalty.
Jennifer insisted that she had not killed her abusive husband -- and she could never have killed her own son. Dismas Hardy believed her. But Hardy was only part of the defense team, and the only lawyer who continued to believe her...even as her story was torn to pieces, even as her lies came out, even as she was found guilty of murder.
Now there's only one thing Jennifer can do to save her life...and she refuses to do it. So Hardy must do it for her. And in a shocking case of violence, betrayal, and lies, his only weapon is the truth...
The 13th Juror...When innocence is not enough.

I would have given the book 5 stars, but it felt like the eventual revelation of the true murderer was unfairly hidden from the reader until the last moment. Lescroart slyly set up the reader (and his protagonist, Hardy) to doggedly pursue a few plausible red herrings, meanwhile the real culprit was relegated to a secondary (almost tertiary) plot thread until needed in the end. Even so, the climax was still satisfying, especially since the means, motive, and opportunity were clearly revealed and the reader was even allowed a peek into the mind of the culprit to see how things really happened.
Riveting. John Lescroart is a must buy, must read author. Stand-alone that is easy to follow and difficult to put down.
Compelling storyline with plenty of twists throughout.
Believable characters with distinct personalities. Informative, thought-provoking and occasionally snarky dialogue.
We would give her more consideration, when we judge a woman, if we knew how difficult it is to be a woman.
The fickleness of the women I love is only equaled by the infernal constancy of the women who love me.
GEORGE BERNARD SHAW
"Secret police code, which I’m not allowed to reveal under penalty of death.” He leaned forward, whispering. “Out f'ing off.” He went back to the report.
Abe Glitsky told him he had this tragic flaw of a fundamental need to continually restore order to a chaotic cosmos.
If you couldn’t affect anything, if you couldn’t act, then by Freeman’s definition there was nothing to be done.
I may re-read this story and always look forward to works by this author.
I'd like a logical story with an ending which jibes with the clues and evidence.
It is a complex case, and a courtroom drama. You will learn a lot about legal procedures, conduct of trials, etc. You can hope you never end up being run through the system. You can be innocent, and it will still take a year of your life and a lot of your money.
The circumstances - it's a question of could she have done it and whether she had a motive, and how much to believe "witnesses" and what they claim that they heard or saw.
And people have secrets.
Some aspects of the case seemed a little unfinished. One has to wonder, for example, if a woman has money and has made the right connections, what would she do about someone who has abused her?
If there's a negative for this reader, there's a little more time spent on family life than I would like, but this is a minor nitpick.
Start reading a Dismas Hardy novel and see if you can stop with just one.
