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).

My overall summary of these three books is that Harry Bosch is flawed and acts like an asshole most of the time. He seems to have a good brain, but his ability to use people (the e...
Kiedy Michael Connelly obok swojego sztandarowego cyklu z charakterystycznym nieprzekupnym i idealistycznym gliniarzu Harrym Boschu umieścił nowy - z trudnym do scharakteryzowania prawnikiem Mickym Hallerem - chyba nikt się nie spodziewał (autor chyba też) że te cykle zaczną się wzajemnie przenikać ...
There are several elements that make this, for me, the best of the Mickey Haller series that I have read so far, and a book worthy of five stars. For one, I really enjoyed the topical aspect of Mickey's foreclosure practice. In this, the reader can learn about some of the issues surrounding the econ...
