THIS BOOK IS AWESOME. It is very well written and it holds your interest from page 1 to the end. The plot moves fluidly. The ending packs a huge punch that you don't quite expect but you know the main character, Haller, is working on setting something up throughout. The foreshadowing pulls you through the book. A definite must read !!

This book is not the typical Michael Connelly book, but I enjoyed it even more. I love the other books that he wrote, but this one is just outstanding. I could not put it down and the ending is unbelievable! I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good, well written book.

I discovered Michael Connelly long ago when I read "Blood Work", but never really got into his books.
Recently I picked up a few of his Audio Books and was amazed to find that I love his writing.
This story tells of a Defense Lawyer, his 2 ex-wives and the unfortunate case that would change his life forever. I couldn't wait to hear the next CD or what the next twist in the road would reveal. An excellent book.

Connelly did his usual excellent job here. I almost quit after the first thirty pages because I usually get turned off by books about sleazy lawyers (ever notice how many lawyers become novelists - makes you wonder if we have way too many). Anyhow, I stuck with it and was rewarded with an interesting yarn. Connelly seems to have found a new vein to mine.

I don't typically care for legal thrillers, but this one was a terrific read, with good characters, good dialog, and an interesting and complex story. Mickey Haller is an intriguing study in contrasts, and the technique of following him through his daily life--events mundane and otherwise--gave the story and the character a rare realism and immediacy. Nicely done.

I really loved the characters in this book. Once I started reading it caught my attention and I did not want to put it down.

Very good. This book is by the same author as the Harry Bosch police detective series. It tells the story from the opposite angle,that of the lawyer rather than the police.
The main character, Mickey Haller, is a down and out lawyer who has made a mess of his life. He's a very likeable guy, not half as bad as he would like people to think. Mickey takes a high profile case that he hopes will get him back on top and in the money. Of course nothing and no one is what it seems at first glance. Lots of twists and turns,hard to put it down. It's much less grim than the Bosch series and just as enjoyable.
