    Story

    The organized criminal gangs of the former Soviet Union are bound by what they call the thieves' code. The first rule is this: A thief must forsake his mother, father, brothers, and sisters. He must have no family - no wife, no children - because only other criminals are his family. If any of the rules are broken, it is punishable by death.

    "Excellent Listen"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed all of the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike books by Robert Crais. He is a great storyteller but his narration leaves much to be desired. After becoming engrossed in the story line this amateur narration became less annoying. This is a great story with typical Joe Pike brevity, He incorporates characters you know with interesting new characters. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a fast paced, well written story.

    Longtime defense attorney Mickey Haller is recruited to change stripes and prosecute the high-profile retrial of a brutal child murder. After 24 years in prison, convicted killer Jason Jessup has been exonerated by new DNA evidence. Haller is convinced Jessup is guilty, and he takes the case on the condition that he gets to choose his investigator, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch.

    Overall

    I've read or listened to all of Michael Connelly's books. I liked the interaction between Haller and Bosch and I liked having both a crimminal investigation and a courtroom procedural narrative in one book. The characters where well developed and the story was very interesting. I agree with some of the other reviews in that the end was a bit flat as if the author just ran out of steam or was nearing a deadline. I did like the open ending however. Sometimes it's too easy to have all of the storylines neatly wrapped up and I enjoyed the ambiguity of the ending. All in all a good listen that kept me interested throughout!
