This was another John Lescroart success. He kept this story interesting so that you always had mystery throughout. I had to read all the time to see what the ending would be.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Michael R. Eiger on Oct. 17 2002
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nothing but the Truth is the first John T. Lescroart novel I've read, but it certainly won't be my last!! I will definitely explore the rest of the Dismas Hardy series, and go from there.
In this book, Hardy is an attorney whose wife somehow gets "involved" in a murder investigation of their children's classmate's mother. In order to clear her name, as it were, Hardy works with a friend in Homicide and undertakes his own probing, and as it turns out, dangerous, investigation of the murder.
The book is a compelling read from page one. Although I freely admit I'm not the best at guessing "who done it", the twists and turns the investigation takes really blew my mind. The clues were there, but there was no way I could put it all together. I guess that's why I'm a reader and not a crime investigator ;)
I really can't recommend this book highly enough. I'm certainly looking forward to reading more of Mr. Lescroart's writing. Hopefully, you will too :D

One day, looking for something to read, I happened to pick up a Lescroart. Fascinated by his style and the ingenuity of his plotting, I immediately sent off to Amazon for a copy of everything he had ever written. It's a prized shelf in my library, friends, and I'll bet that once you taste him, you'll be as addicted as I.

I have read several of John Lescroart's books, and each one is remarkably enjoyable. Unfortunately, I have not read them in sequential order, so that I find myself a bit surprised as to how Dismas Hardy's life has "progressed." Nevertheless, this series is so well-written, with enough referrals to previous incidents and cases, that each can stand on its own.
NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH is an immensely engrossing story. I found that the time line--four days to solve a murder that had occurred four weeks previously and had gone cold--in order to save his wife, Frannie, from suffering more indignities and consequences for protecting a friends's secret, was exciting and compelling. From the first chapter, I wanted to finish the book FAST! I love when a book hooks me like this, and that is what all of Lescroart's books do...grab you and keep you going and going until you reach the suprising, satisfying conclusion.
By the way, listening to one of his wonderful books on tape, HARD EVIDENCE, I learned his name is pronounced la-sqwaa--soft "a." Something fun to know!

...the plot and that protagonist Dismus Hardy, in his 13th outing, finds himself worried about his wife, in more ways than one. She's got a secret (involving another man suspected of murder) so important that she has refused to spill it to a grand jury. Hence her moral predicament: if she refuses to tell, she sits in jail on a contempt charge. But she is scared of jail. Getting only part of the secret from her, Dismus realizes that whatever it is in full, his only way to get her out is to solve a murder, so she won't have to testify about her male friend.
Dismus is a loyal husband and father. He loves his children and does trust his wife, but the tale not only involves more murders and attempts on his life as he gets closer to the murderer(s?), but is a study of the marital anguish that goes on when the couple realizes it's needs are not being met as they have gradually drifted towards different committments. LesCroart weaves the marital relationship into the mystery very well.
The abridged tape version is read clearly and with enough feeling by Dylan Baker (remember him from early "Law and Order" TV episodes?) that you can sit back and enjoy the suspenseful ride (literally, in my case, in the car!)

One thing to be said for this book, some of characters' names are cool, like Dismas Hardy, criminal defense lawyer and husband of Frannie , who has her behind in a sling and in a jail cell for refusing to testify about a murder before a grand jury. Dis can only free her by proving who the real killer is.
This is like Perry Mason, where the killers always came to watch some poor slob get convicted of a murder he or she did not commit, only to have Perry's tricks result in the real killer giving a full confession just before the commercial.
Earle Stanley Gardner did it better and more convincingly.

Attorney Dismas Hardy is stunned when he receives a phone call saying his wife has not picked up their kids from school. Frannie would NEVER forget to pick up their children, so Dismas knows that something is wrong. Tracking down his wife, he comes to the startling discovery...she is in jail.
Frannie has just appeared before the grand jury (keeping this from her husband) and refusing to give up a crucial piece of evidence against Ron-a friend accused of murdering his wife, lands her in jail. Furious, Dismas, wants answers.
Dismas begins turning over every stone, to find out who would have killed Brea Beaumont, and what secrets are being hidden by the grieving widower, Ron.
Dismas is looking for the truth, but is he prepared for what he finds?
"Nothing But The Truth" is one of the weaker novels by this very good author. While starting off fast, the novel takes a nose dive down, and becomes boring with each new suspect and plot twist thrown in. By the time the killer was revealed I didn't really care.
John Lescroart is one of the better legal/thriller writers, but his new novel becomes too complicated and boring to supply the thrills that are usually found in his books.
