In this riveting New York Times bestselling novel from the “master of the legal thriller” (Chicago Sun-Times) John Lescroart, defense attorney Dismas Hardy tackles his most personal and complex case yet—defending his brother-in-law against murder charges.

Moses McGuire has good reason to be concerned about his twenty-three-year-old daughter, Brittany. Popular and pretty, she moves quickly from one boyfriend to the next and always seems to prefer a new and mysterious stranger to a man she already knows. But her most recent ex, Rick Jessup, isn’t willing to let her go, culminating in a horrific night when Brittany is raped.

Within twenty-four hours, Jessup is dead, McGuire is the prime suspect in the investigation, and Dismas Hardy has been hired to defend his longtime friend and brother-in-law. Complicating things further, McGuire has fallen off the wagon, and his stay in prison could bring to light old secrets that would destroy Hardy’s career. As the overwhelming evidence against McGuire piles up, Hardy focuses on planting doubt in the minds of the jurors—until, in a feat of legal ingenuity that is staggering in both its implications and its simplicity, Hardy sees a way forward that might just save them all. But at what price?

Once again, John Lescroart has penned a fascinating and masterful novel showcasing his extraordinary gift for storytelling. With a cast of flesh-and-blood characters, moral dilemmas, and long-lost secrets, Ophelia Cut is “smart, riveting, and utterly compelling” (#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor).
