    When Mickey Haller is invited by the Los Angeles County District Attorney to prosecute a case for him, he knows something strange is going on. Mickey's a defense lawyer, one of the best in the business, and to switch sides like this would be akin to asking a fox to guard the hen-house.

    Story

    The story presents Mickey Haller from a very unusual perspective, in the role of a hired prosecutor he puts together his team involving Harry Bosch and his ex-wife Maggie. Determined, and conducting the case independently from the DA office establishment, they dig into the past to get justice for a crime committed in 1986, whose initial verdict was reversed because of new DNA evidence. The strength of the novel is in the development of the characters, their humanity and their professional commitment, the mixing of strong personalities in the pursuing of a common goal, the weakness of human beings whose lives are severed by dramatic events. It is a Connelly's courtroom story constructed as well as usual to make it real to the listener, with no deviations into rhetoric and never trivial. The book is read with passion by the narrator Michael Brandon, and the listener is captured from the beginning into the novel's involving atmosphere.
