Connelly does a great job in this sequel to the Lincoln Lawyer. The story is engaging in and of itself. But if you are a fan of his other series with Harry Bosch, then you are going to like his appearance here. I see myself in the characters, as the story progresses the people and places come to life. A great read, can't wait for what's next.
This audiobook grabs the listener from the first words and tightens its grip as it goes on. It's one fine murder mystery, and the ending is chock full of surprises.
As a former criminal defense attorney, I found Mickey Haller to be more than irresistible; he rang true. His thoughts on defending people he knew to be guilty of crime, his rationale and knowledge that his role is an integral part of our system of justice, and his personal reactions that change remarkably by the end, all spot on.
The narrator does a fine job of distinguishing the characters without going to great lengths to do different voices.
I highly recommend this book.
I have read all of Connelly's books and this one does not disappoint. The narrator's voice is a good fit for the book, though his inflection is poor. Not enough to detract from the impact of the story, fortunately. It is a legal thriller with lots of action.
Holds you until the end and never allows you to go. Highly recommended !
Micheal Connelly has always been one of my favorite authors. His character, Harry Boesch is one of the best. But this was a great introduction to a new character, Michael Haller. It was an especially interesting and detailed court drama. Anyone who enjoys character descriptions and suspense will enjoy this book.
Predictable. Trite. Clich?. The reader was HORRIBLE and the cheesy music did nothing to improve matters. I was disappointed right from the start and my listening experience never improved.
His previous books were a little better. Some of my dislike for the book may have come from the narrator. He sounded like a bad high school actor trying to read his lines. He couldn't deliver.
