Jackson Workman Pickens - 'Work' to his friends - an unambitious lawyer in a small Southern town, has some serious baggage. His mother died a year ago from a 'fall' down the family's colonial staircase and his father, Ezra, has been missing ever since. Work is left to deal with his psychologically damaged sister, his father's legal caseload and his own rocky marriage. Power and greed bring many enemies, especially for a man as cruel as Ezra Pickens, so when his body turns up pretty much everyone in town is a suspect - but only one man is charged with the murder. With time, his wife and public opinion against him, Work embarks on his toughest case yet: proving his own innocence. His investigation will uncover a web of intrigue he could never have imagined - and he soon realises that no one is above suspicion - even those he loves most.
This book will keep you on your toes till the very end..wonderful!!

So many twists and Turns
I like legal thrillers and complex plots. This indeed fits the bill. Fast moving, and emotionally satisfying.

John Hart is at the top of my new favorite author's list.
His characters are real, his dialogue is splendid, the plots are strong--I'm waiting--none too patiently--for him to write more.

Glad I've discovered John Hart!
I've only recently discovered John Hart. I read "Down River" first and was simply blown away -- first time in a long time that I've stayed up past my bedtime to read one more chapter, then just one more. I enjoyed "The King of Lies" a little less than "Down River" but it is, after all, Hart's first published work. I'm eagerly awaiting his 3rd offering!
