The Ophelia Cut
THE OPHELIA CUT by John Lescroart is his usual great story. He always has good mysteries in which you don't always find an answer. Moses, Dismas,Gina and Abe are tied together by an age old secret that may or may not have been criminal. But when Moses loses sobriety everyone is afraid he will "spill his guts". Moses daughter is raped and he is thrown over the edge. Her assailant is found murdered. Did Moses do it in a drunken state? There are others who have motive but the judge will not let Dismas use the third person murderer defense so how will he get Moses off of this murder conviction? And then in walks his alibi which will keep Moses out of jail and safe from telling his long kept secret. But all of a sudden that fear is no longer.
