International bestseller John Lescroart on the gaps in our legal system
This was flat out one of my favorite interviews. John is a legend in the business, and couldn't have been a nicer guy. And he's a fellow Californian—what's more to love?
During the interview, we talk about his latest book, The Fall, which delves into themes relates to the flaws in our legal system, including institutional racism and an imperfect foster system.
He also helps support CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), which helps care for foster children and teens.
Did you know John is an accomplished recording artist? I've been binge-listening to him since the interview. Listen here
Finally, I always get a cheap thrill when I see a character name that belongs to someone I know. One of his characters, Graham Russo, happens to be the name of my nephew. So there's that. I know someone who will be getting a copy of The Mercy Rule.
