Another home run by Michael Connelly. Book 3 in the Mickey Haller series Connelly does a masterful job of writing, using first person when the chapters are more about Mickey, and third person when the chapters focus on Harry. This style works quite well. As the story progresses Harry calls in the services of his old girlfriend Rachel Walling, who blends into the tale quite nicely. Haller tries to use his own experience as a defender to anticipate all the moves of his opponent in court and most times is quite correct in his assumptions.

The plot is intriguing, the court scenes realistic and entertaining, and the characters are vividly portrayed. The surveillance details were informative and educational. From the opening scene to the final scene, the book held my interest and made me want to keep turning the pages to see what else happened. There were some places where the tension was very high and I thought I knew what was going to happen, but then something else happened instead. I would never have guessed the ending.

Definitely a book to read in one setting. You won't want to put it down.
