The story presents Mickey Haller from a very unusual perspective, in the role of a hired prosecutor he puts together his team involving Harry Bosch and his ex-wife Maggie. Determined, and conducting the case independently from the DA office establishment, they dig into the past to get justice for a crime committed in 1986, whose initial verdict was reversed because of new DNA evidence. The strength of the novel is in the development of the characters, their humanity and their professional commitment, the mixing of strong personalities in the pursuing of a common goal, the weakness of human beings whose lives are severed by dramatic events. It is a Connelly's courtroom story constructed as well as usual to make it real to the listener, with no deviations into rhetoric and never trivial. The book is read with passion by the narrator Michael Brandon, and the listener is captured from the beginning into the novel's involving atmosphere.

Both Haller and Bosch are in this one. That was a bit hard to get used to as I'm used to Bosch being the leading character. I enjoyed it. Not perfect, but if you know Connelly then you won't be disappointed.
If you love a crime and a good legal drama this Michael Connelly is the book for you it had me from beginning to end.
I am still in chapter 1... and frustrated with myself that In my haste to get this sequel to the Gods of Guilt I forgot to listen to the narrator, assuming it to be the same. Unfortunately this narrator gives a completely different representation of the familiar characters and just distracts me.... I am going to give it another chapter as the plot sounds promising, but if I cant concentrate on the story I will return it and order the kindle version instead!
