I am just becoming acquainted with Mike Connelly's books. This one had an interesting ending, one I would not have figured on-not your typical "justice prevails." I think I like the Harry Bosch character better so far. I have read 5 books so far so I may change my preference. I enjoy Connelly's writings because he gives you a good working knowledge of the legal system and law enforcement. I found that if I write down the abbreviations, it helps me follow the flow of the story better.

Great book, well written and enjoyed the ending. Looking forward to my next Connelly adventure. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed unless you do not like court room drama.

My first of Connelly's books. A good book, with lots of twists and turns, but was getting impatient to finish.... Found it was dragging on.... So I'm not that impressed so far. He won't be one of my favourite writers based on this first experience. Will try another one to see if I like it better. Gave it 3*

Well written, fast-paced book that was an enjoyable read. Couldn't put it down! Also provided some insight into the USA foreclosure crisis. Recommended!

I really liked the background information on foreclosure but was pretty disappointed with the ending. I also found that Mickey Haller was acting and talking like Matthew McConaughey throughout the entire book. Alittle too Hollywood for me.
