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).

Great book, well written and enjoyed the ending. Looking forward to my next Connelly adventure. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed unless you do not like court room drama.

By Michael Connelly c – 2011 ----

This is a good story and read. ----
Michael Haller, Defense Attorney- sure ends up doing some haller’n in this legal tale. ----

He goes to bat for a woman whom is victimized by the system of ‘Home Loan Foreclosure.’ She hires Mr. Haller to help her, for the system is abusing her rights. ----

Michael sends a letter to the ones giving her the hard time, which includes fraud by the foreclosure co. ---- Then Mr. Bondurant the manager of these home loans, at WestLand National; the bank that made the loan: is murdered. ----

Lisa Trammel, the woman victimized, is accused of the murder. ----

Lisa is also a highly active protester of the foreclosure system, with many fellow protesters. Also she has a restraining order against her: to stay away from Mr. Bondurant the manager. ----

Enjoy! ----
