It's really very good. It would be hard to say enough about this book without divulging important points. I will say that the end will blow you away -- not because it's a surprise, but because of the visceral upheaval you may (I did feel) racing to the conclusion. The beauty of this kind of writing is that everything that occurs is there, hidden in plain sight in the tiny details so that the end is relief but not a shock. The shock comes from the recognition that we share Mickey Haller's joys, pains and disappointments during his discoveries. The satisfaction comes when we agree with his final acts and decisions.

This was my first time listening to a legal thriller, and I can safely say I'm hooked. I had always shied away from the genre, assuming that the plots were too fantastical - but this story has a ripped-from-the-headlines feel, creating a relevancy that will attract both newbies like me and established thriller fans. Mitzner delivers a character driven narrative, while seamlessly blending romance, criminal law, and suspense, keeping me guessing until the very end. Kevin T. Collins does a marvelous job narrating - the emotion that he pours into each character captivated me from the start. I felt all of the triumphs and setbacks of the case, and I found myself deeply invested in its outcome. I really hope that this duo works together again, but in the meantime I'm going hunting for more from both the author and the narrator.
