Mickey Haller is a Lincoln lawyer--a criminal defence attorney who operates out of the back of his car, a Lincoln, taking whatever cases the system throws in his path. He's been in the business a long time, and he knows just how to work it.
When a Beverly Hills rich boy is arrested for brutally beating a woman, Haller has his first high-paying client in years. The evidence mounts on the defence's side, and Haller might even be in the rare position of defending a client who is actually innocent. But then the case starts to fall apart, neither the suspect nor the victim are quite who they seem--and Haller quickly discovers that when you swim with the sharks, it's easy to wind up as prey.

this was a very interesting story. it had me intrigued the whole way through and I couldn't put it dow.
Well, this was the last book I needed to listen to in order to complete the entire library of Mr Connelly.
I have never finished one feeling disappointed. Micky Haller and Bosch are half brothers, but that's where the similarities end. They are completely different characters with opposing professional ethics, mindsets, and approaches, etc. Perhaps their morals are on a par, somehow.
Anyway. As different as he is to Bosch, Haller is a brilliantly conceived and written character. I hope there's more material planned for this character.
Great narration on this book too.
I honestly have no idea what I'm going to listen to next........
5 stars all round.
