Description

After taking on a foreclosure case, defense attorney Mickey Haller must prove his client's innocence -- but first he must follow a trail of black market evidence to its sinister end.
Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. He expands his business into foreclosure defense, only to see one of his clients accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home.
Mickey puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, even though the evidence and his own suspicions tell him his client is guilty. Soon after he learns that the victim had black market dealings of his own, Haller is assaulted, too -- and he's certain he's on the right trail.

Despite the danger and uncertainty, Haller mounts the best defense of his career in a trial where the last surprise comes after the verdict is in. Connelly proves again why he "may very well be the best novelist working in the United States today" (San Francisco Chronicle).

    Good story. Good Defense Attorney vs. Prosecutor Attorney front and back play. Plus the Judge wasn’t bad either. Murder always deserves being defended to the end. Sometimes they win, sometimes they lose and maybe win again at a later time.

    I am becoming quite the fan of Harry Bosch’s half brother. Would make a great movie but in the meantime it is a great read.

    This was a very entertaining book moving from scene to scene allowing you to capture in your mind the events clearly as if you were part of the book. Very good with a twist at the end

    Connelly spins a great yarn, a bit out there, but believable. Fast paced, good characters who stay consistent, and an intriguing view of the law and the games people play. How books never fail to entertain and inform. Enjoy!
  • Great as always!
