Opening Sentence of the Day: Betrayal



"On a Wednesday evening in early December, Dismas Hardy, standing at the thin line of dark cherry in the light hardwood floor of his office, threw a dart."

-- Betrayal, by John Lescroart

This is the 12th (or so -- I lose track) book in Lescroart's Dismas Hardy series.  This is a great series -- my favorite -- because the stories are complex in ideas and plot and there are lots of characters whose lives have entwined as the series has progressed. Also, they are thick with details about San Francisco, which I am in the mood for because Christmastime makes me nostalgic for the years I lived there.

Ooh! I haven't read this series! I will have to check it out. I'm always looking for something that is far on the other end of the spectrum from what I write, so I can still read good books while I'm working on a project without things interfering. I'm so glad you mentioned this!

Dismas Hardy is one my favorites, too. I always wanted to live in the Bay Area and Lescroart's books always satisfied that itch to fantasize about that. It was cool to read the latest one here in the Bay Area this year - felt perfect.
