Okay at best

Don't judge Lescroart by this book. It's probably his worst one; others, like Betrayal or The Hearing are excellent. This one has too many characters and the plot is too Byzantine to follow. It's 95% politics and backstory on the characters, none of whom are admirable here, and only 5% mystery. These percentages should be reversed. His usual verisimilitude is missing, going past far-fetched all the way to preposterous. I can suspend disbelief for a good story, but not this far. I'm a big fan of Lescroart but if this were the first book of his I'd picked up, I would never have read a second.
