John Lescroat: Damage

Houston-born author John Lescroart returns to his home town with another one of his popular thrillers. This time it’s Damage, a tale of revenge, the price of justice and the ever-elusive truth. When the son of a wealthy California family is found guilty of rape and murder, those who helped convict him are dealt with quickly. The jury foreman loses his job and is blacklisted, the prosecutor’s career is derailed and the lead detective is reassigned to the police department’s payroll office. Eventually, all three rebuild their lives. Then the guilty man wins a retrial and is released from prison. Less than 24 hours later, the star witness for the prosecution is found in the charred remains of her home, and everyone realizes they’re in danger again. 6:30 p.m. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet.
