not yet rated|write a review
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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Courtroom Thriller At Its Best Connelly does not disappoint with a masterful paced courtroom drama that lives up to his reputation. The twists and turns keep the writing fresh while still following the usual Michael Haller formula. Well worth the read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great courtroom mystery Times are tough for Mickey Haller. He has branched into foreclosures. One of his clients, Lisa Trammel is undergoing a foreclosure of her house by Westland Financial Bank. She has gone so far as to protest and has been served a restraining order by the bank. When Mitchell Bondurant, the head of the mortgage department, is killed Lisa becomes the main suspect and she calls on Haller to defend her. Haller does what he does best and puts up smoke screens and major doubt. He finds out that Bonurant also had some financial difficulties and that sets into motion the defense. This is full of court procedures. Haller seems to be able to use the system to show almost anything, true or not. Connelly had me going in this one. First she is guilty and then she isn't and then???? This book did show me that no one would want to get involved as witness or other because you could be destroyed in the process; guilty or not. I loved the twist at the end
