November 2013 Book of the Month.
“Call me asap – 187” says the text, 187 being the California penal code for murder. Lawyer Mickey Haller sees money and knows he will have to work at his highest level. It turns out the victim was a prostitute he had defended on several occasions, and she had a number of contacts who could have killed her. Weaving through the tense tale is more back story of Haller and his estranged teenage daughter. Michael Connelly fans know what to expect and certainly won’t be disappointed here – with many a plausible twist, it’s great.
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. Far from saving her, Mickey may have been the one who put her in danger.
