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 enjoy this in me to The Lincoln Lawyer series but sometime court cases to drawn out
Interesting but sluggish. A good read, and I do recommend this author.
This was a fun ride, though I don't think that it came up to Connelly's usually high standard. It is a little scattered with too many references to Haller's private life and to the court happenings - not well balanced.
While I think that the narrator does an incredible job with the different voices, I got tired of his "sinister" voice for Sysco(sp?) and in other parts of the story. Also, some of the "I am so smart, I knew that already" that the author has Haller say (or words to that effect) get tiresome.
Well read...great job individualizing the characters.
Not his best
The characters are strong and interesting. Kept me wondering to the very end!
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
Not too bad
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!
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.
