Written By: Michael Connelly

Narrated By: Peter Giles

Date: April 2011

Duration: 7 hours 0 minutes



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).

    Michael Connelly taps into contemporary headlines by using the housing crisis as the basis for this courtroom drama, featuring the Lincoln lawyer himself - Mickey Haller. Underwater homeowner Lisa Trammel is accused of killing the banker handling her foreclosure, and Haller takes on her defense. As with any Connelly book, what initially appears simple turns into the complex. I enjoyed the in-depth accounting of the things a defense team goes through and struggles with in preparing for a jury trial. There's even a very brief cameo by Harry Bosch!

    I just love this series. The narrator really captures the essence of the characters. I missed Bosch in this book, but the story was engrossing. Has lots of courtroom legalities and definitely some mystery and always an interesting ending!

    I love Michael Connlley. He makes me feel like I am really in L A. I have a girl friend who just moved here from LA and I know the streets and land marks. I really want to see Angels Flight. Mr Connley makes me feel like I live in LA. I would give this a 4 star. Dana

    Enjoyed the suspense of this mystery. It is slow in building but he facts are important, pay attention. Thought I had it figured out a few times . Then Wham What an ending!

  • DFahlstrom

    Connelly is at it again in this 4th book on his Micky Haller character. His crime and courtroom stories are always interesting, with constant twists and turns. These are thinking man's books and this one takes the twists to the final page. Read and and enjoy. I can't wait for his next offering - be it Haller or Bosch ...or both!

    Hmmm, not so good. The best part was the ending. I like the author's books with Harry Bosch in them....much better I think.
