Baker & Taylor
In the aftermath of a federal judge's murder, homicide inspector Devin Juhle discovers that the victim had powerful enemies, a mistress, and unsettling ties to a woman with whom Devin's best friend has fallen in love.

Blackwell North Amer
A federal judge is murdered, found shot to death in his home - together with the body of his mistress. The crime grips San Francisco. To homicide inspector Devin Juhle, it first looks like a simple case of a wife's jealousy and rage. But Juhle's investigation reveals that the judge had powerful enemies ... some of whom may have been willing to kill to prevent him from meddling in their affairs.
Meanwhile, private investigator Wyatt Hunt, Juhle's best friend, finds himself smitten with the beautiful and enigmatic Andrea Parisi. A lawyer who recently has become a celebrity as a commentator on Trial TV, Andrea has star power in spades, and seems bound for a national anchor job in New York. Until Juhle discovers that Andrea, too, had a connection to the judge, along with a client that had everything to gain from the judge's death.
And then she suddenly disappears ...
Andrea becomes Juhle's prime suspect. Wyatt Hunt thinks she may be a kidnap victim, or worse .. another murder victim. And far more than that, she's someone with whom he believes he may have a future.
As the search for Andrea intensifies, Hunt gathers a loose band of friends and associates willing to bend and even break the rules, leading them all to a chilling confrontation from which none of them might escape.

I love John Lescroart but I felt this spin off novel was not up to the usual standard. I'll be sticking with Dismas and Abe.

First exposure to Lescroart, and will be reading more. // Opening few chapters initially seem unrelated to main story line, then eventually become relevant. Very good who-dun-it that keeps you guessing to the end, despite ample (in hindsight) clues.
