First time I listen an audiobook: I found it a good idea to spend my time comuting (2 hours driving a day). This book made me wish I had 10 hours drive to work ! I did not want to stop listening.
The story is about a lawyer who gradually discovers that he has deep inside a sense of justice. The rich customer he defends first appears as an innocent, but then, the reader goes from a surprise to a new surprise. Very exciting !
This is my favorite of Mr. Connelly's books. The court-room scenes are spot-on and catch the reader by surprise just as the lawyer catches witnesses in his cunning traps. I highly recommend this book...it will not disappoint.
This was my first Michael Connelly book and I enjoyed it immensely. I love John Grisham but I found this much more enjoyable than some of his books because it was a "page turner", full of intrigue and quick moving plot. I also thought the narrator was very good. I listened to it driving in the car, while doing chores and before I went to bed. It only took me three days to finish it. I'm quite disappointed it is finished but I look forward to listening to more from this author.
In true Michael Connelly fashion, this book is awesome. The twists and turns keep you totally captivated. The narrator and author make for a perfect audible book.
The story moved along well, but the middle became a little murky, and although it built to a climax, the end did not pack the punch that I had hoped. Somewhat of a surprise, it was a bit watered down and resulted in the "wow" factor dribbling out rather than being an all-at-once "in your face" revelation. The dramatized narration was what kept it interesting for me.
