John Lescroart and San Francisco are synonymous. The author of over a score of novels, Lescroart usually bases his action in California’s city by the bay. His long-standing series featuring ex-cop, ex-bartender, ex-PI, and current defense attorney Dismas Hardy, takes place in the courtrooms and mean streets of San Francisco, as does his series featuring private investigator Wyatt Hunt.
Lescroart, who came to writing after a career in music, regularly finds his fast-paced fiction on the bestseller lists. He has been dubbed “one of the best thriller writers to come down the pike” by USA Today, and “reliably excellent” by Publishers Weekly. His third novel featuring Wyatt Hunt, The Hunter, appears in January, 2012.
