This book is certainly worth reading, I felt a little less sympathy for Mickey Haller than I have in previous books, somehow he started off by being a bit unpleasant, but seemed to improve in the course of the story. I need to be able to like the characters in a story.
The story was good and dealt with well. Overall I enjoyed the book
I like Rumpole, Bill Wallis as narrator took a little getting used to after my usual listening on Radio 4. But then I found him to be excellent in the role. Rumpole's cases are always fun and not too 'heavy', sometimes I like to have a little light relief.
All in all a really enjoyable book.
Made a nice change from the Grisham style US legal thrillers. Nick Stone is a good UK writer and he presented a very credible setting for his novel. I was very impressed with the narration by David Thorpe who handled a wide range of voices with some style. I will look out for other books he narrates. The end was slightly convoluted but it didn't lose the plot and I was interested in what happened to the characters up until the last page.
