Michael Connelly has the reputation of being a master storyteller. This book is no exception. The Lincoln Lawyer, Mick Haller is just coming off a big win when he is pulled over by a cop who finds a body in his car trunk. Things go downhill from there on when a vindictive judge slaps a bail of $ 5 million on him which needless to say he can't meet. Thus he ends up in the violent Twin Towers jail and has to plan his defense from there. I wouldn't want to be a spoiler and reveal anymore. Suffice it to say that Haller would like to be exonerated rather than just declared Not Guilty. I must say that I missed the courtroom drama I was looking forward to and found the ending a trifle unsatisfactory but you be the judge.
