Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life.

Daddy certainly set off a chain of events that instead of securing his children's future, threw it all away. There is a lot of flopping back and forth but you have to have that to know what is going on. And you don't get the big reveal or(motive) until the end. And it's coming, trust me. Good listen, worth the the credit.

It's 1934. Businesses went under by the hundreds, debt and foreclosures boomed, and breadlines grew in many American cities. In the midst of this misery, some folks explored unscrupulous ways to make money. Angel-faced John Partlow and carnival huckster Ginger LaFrance are among the worst of this lot. Joining together they leave their small-time confidence scams behind to attempt an elaborate kidnapping-for-ransom scheme in New Orleans.

She's old-money Miami. He's barefoot Coconut Grove. The only thing they had in common was the law, until they faced each other in the steamiest murder trial of the century, a case that would make sparks fly, headlines scream, and opposites attract. Surrounded by crooks, con men, and a cast of colorful characters, Steve Solomon and Vickie Lord must solve the crime before they end up in ruin, in jail, or, worse, in bed.

I enjoyed this book to the point I laughed out loud. Solomon is a character but very dedicated to his nephew Bobby. At times it was very disturbing. But Bobby and Solomon won the day. Solomon's partner Victoria is like mixing oil and water, but they come to understand each other. Good book! Nattarator is good.

What a story! I admire
what she went thru and came successfully out the other side. It would have broke most people who would have become alcoholics or addicted to drugs. She is truly an inspiration. This book ought to be required reading in high school. Hope she lives at least to be as old as her mother or older.😀 Great book!
