Poison: A Novel (Atria Books)
Author John Lescroart in conversation with Mechanics’ Institute Executive Director Ralph Lewin

In this riveting new book by “master of the legal thriller” (Chicago Sun-Times) John Lescroart, attorney Dismas Hardy is looking forward to easing into retirement and reconnecting with his family. But he is pulled back into the courtroom when Grant Wagner, the steely owner of a successful family business, is murdered. Preparing for trial, Dismas investigates the Wagner clan, discovering dark, twisted secrets, jealous siblings, gold-digging girlfriends, betrayals, and blackmail. With Lescroart’s razor-sharp dialogue and whip-smart plotting, Poison is a nail-biter that will keep you guessing until the very last page.
