Publisher's Summary

Mickey Haller is a Lincoln lawyer--a criminal defence attorney who operates out of the back of his car, a Lincoln, taking whatever cases the system throws in his path. He's been in the business a long time, and he knows just how to work it.

When a Beverly Hills rich boy is arrested for brutally beating a woman, Haller has his first high-paying client in years. The evidence mounts on the defence's side, and Haller might even be in the rare position of defending a client who is actually innocent. But then the case starts to fall apart, neither the suspect nor the victim are quite who they seem--and Haller quickly discovers that when you swim with the sharks, it's easy to wind up as prey.

Now this is a good one

Haven’t heard one like this for a while but certainly worth it - only disconcerning parts are the music that suddenly appears which isn’t needed but it’s there so be prepared

The music is terrible

This would be 5 star if that terrible music wasn’t in it. It doesn’t match the story when it comes in, and totally distracts me from the story whilst playing. Just weird.

WHY WOULD YOU ADD MUSIC TO IT?

I don't know who is behind the idea of adding music to the audiobook at random times but FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, STOP DOING THAT!! If there was another edition of this book on audible I would have returned this one immediately. At times the music becomes unbearingly loud and you literally cannot concentrate on the dialogue. I have watched this movie over a dozen times, read a physical copy of this book over 5 times and wished it be in my audible collection but I cannot describe how disappointing it is to have such an obnoxious sound for absolutely no reason whatsoever...

Audio quality is crap

The book itself is great, typical Connelly, nail biting all the way through but someone really f*cked up the audio on this, compression artefacts on the voice and clipping on the louder parts. Not the usual standard!

Great story. Shame about the static and missing bits

Thoroughly enjoyed the story but there were places where some words or sentences were missing. This was disappointing as I missed bits of the story.
This is my 4th audio book and I haven't had that problem with any of the other books. Now, to watch the movie!

Amazing.

Absolutely loved this book. Having come to it from the TV series, I had high hopes and was not disappointed.
Yes the random music that comes around can be frustrating but after the first few times you get used to it.
Amazing story, great narration.
My new favourite series.
Do not miss this if you enjoy a good legal crime thriller.

Great book - terrible music

They music annoyed me. Very unnecessary in such a good book. I would have given the story 5 stars if not for that.

Great Story

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The narration was excellent. I had seen the movie 1st, which I loved, and wasn't disappointed at all with the book. I'm a real fan of the Bosch series and am looking forward to continuing on with this series of books.
