    Daniel Hunter has spent years defending lost causes as a solicitor in London. But his life changes when he is introduced to Sebastian, an 11-year-old accused of murdering an innocent young boy. As he plunges into the muddy depths of Sebastian's troubled home life, Daniel thinks back to his own childhood in foster care - and to Minnie, the woman who adopted him and whose love saved him, until she, too, betrayed him so badly that he cut her out of his life. But what crime did Minnie commit that made Daniel disregard her?

    Story

    In the true meaning of the phrase. But this is no cheap novel, it is well written and enjoyably gripping. Really enjoy the main character and the interaction with the many bit players. BUT please Audible do not leave "link" music on your books. the music that I think marks the transition from CD to CD is left on and crops up several times through the novel spoiling the flow. I know this is not unique to this book but is noticeably loud in this case.
    Other than the music this was a great book

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    "Good tale"

    Overall

    Having read all Dick Francis' novels, I was curious how he could write any new ones. Turned out to be a great story, in keeping with all the previous books. Congratulations to Felix for continuing his father's great work.

    Only complaint. ...as good as Tony Britten was, the old voice didn't suit the character.

  • "endearing and gripping"

    6 of 6 helpful votes

    This is unusually for Grisham, a heartwarming story. But still as gripping with unexpected twists and turns as you would expect from such a story spinner. The reading is also well done and makes the complicated legal terms easy on the ear.

Guido Guerrieri knows the case could bring his legal career to a premature and messy end, but he cannot resist the appeal of a hopeless cause. Nor can he deny his attraction to Sister Claudia, the young woman in charge of the shelter where Martina is living, who shares his love of martial arts and his virulent hatred of injustice.

    Given the importance of what they do and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of the USA only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett just became number five. His body was found in the small basement of a lakeside cabin he had built himself and frequently used on weekends. When he did not show up for a trial on Monday morning, his law clerks panicked, called the FBI, and in due course the agents found the crime scene. There was no forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies

Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life. Far from saving her, Mickey may have been the one who put her in danger.
