TOP crime writer Michael Connelly unites one of his best loved characters; seasoned, rough around the edges cop, Detective Harry Bosch, with the relatively new Mickey Haller, the lawyer first introduced to us in the Richard and Judy bestseller The Lincoln Lawyer.
Here the two form a formidable team when Haller inherits the caseload of a lawyer friend found murdered in his car.
One of his big name clients, Hollywood studio head Walter Elliot, is about to face trial for the brutal slaying of his wife and her lover.
in this fast paced page turner it soon emerges that not only has the anti-hero Haller inherited a hefty list of clients but also a poisoned chalice as the killer turns his/her attentions on him.
Bosch is the tired cop on the hunt for the killer up against a none too helpful Haller.
Full of twists and turns this is Connelly at his best with Bosch and Haller both on top form.
