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.

Professional reviews

"Defense attorney Mickey Haller is back, along with his cadre of associates: his streetwise driver, a tough investigator, a young colleague, and a pair of ex-wives. Haller's on-the-go legal career keeps him busy with foreclosure cases--until one of his clients is accused of murder. Connelly is notable in his crafting of character backgrounds, and Peter Giles closely observes these details in his skillful narration. However, as important as the protagonist is in Connelly's book, it's the minor characters whom Giles particularly enlivens. Haller's investigator sounds, well, tough. A Hollywood producer comes off as sleazy. A financial company executive, an information technology worker, and others all have appropriate accents or intonation. Connelly ties up all loose ends in a solid ending, and Giles never misses a beat. M.B. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
