Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The plot teems with complexity, but Lescroart holds readers with cop dialogue that rings true.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“Lescroart has always found a fine balance between his two favorite genres: police procedural and legal drama. Fatal succeeds with a new pairing: It is a psychological thriller in bed with a homicide investigation…a dark, disturbing, satisfying read.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Lescroart is a master storyteller as he knows how to craft a plot and how to create fully developed characters. In both of these departments this book comes across as one of his best works.” Huffington Post
“A terrific stand-alone thriller that melds police procedural with plenty of suspense and action.” Booklist (starred review)
San Francisco police detective Beth Tully, a single mom, tackles a complicated murder case…Narrator Jacques Roy’s clear voice and expert pacing will keep listeners engaged with the serpentine mystery..Roy’s subtle approach and impressive vocal range make for seamless listening as the story jumps between the police investigation, domestic betrayal, and forays into Beth’s personal life.” AudioFile
