Publisher Description

Six months ago, Harry Bosch left the LAPD before they could fire him, and then hired maverick Defense Attorney Mickey Haller to sue the department for forcing him out. Although it wasn't the way he wanted to go, Harry has to admit that being out of the game has its benefits. Until Mickey asks him to help on one of his cases, and suddenly Harry is back where he belongs, right in the centre of a particularly puzzling murder mystery. The difference is, this time Harry is working for the defense, aiming to prevent the accused, Da'Quan Foster, from being convicted. And not only does the prosecution seem to have a cast-iron case, but having crossed over to 'the dark side' as his former colleagues would put it, Harry is in danger of betraying the very principles he's lived by his whole career.

Superb read from the unrivalled crime author MC. Bosch is my favourite fictional character and I cannot get enough of these books, unfortunately that’s all of them. I have loved everyone and will return to read them all again.

Michael Connelly’s Best Yet

This really brings out the best in Harry Bosch and my real favourite charachter Micky Haller. Although the latter appears far less then Bosch, his knowledge of, and adroitness in dealing with the law are, to me as a fan of US courtroom drama, very entertaining. By combining the talents of the 2 main charachters, Mr Connelly has skilfully offered the mouth watering possibility of future appearences by the 2 brothers each with his own, sometimes contrary, approach to the law. Add to that the emergence of a potential new lady in Bosch’s life and there are mouth-watering prospects ahead for Connelly fans.

Recommended for all Bosch fans!

Couldn't put it down. Another Bosch classic with fantastic action, unpredictable twists and intelligent plot. When reading the synopsis I was initially unsure about the inclusion of Haller, as I usually prefer the stories with Bosch as the single protagonist. However I really enjoyed the extra depth and will go back and read more Haller stories.
