Dynamo defense attorney Mickey Haller is back in Connelly’s latest (following The Law of Innocence). He’s still working out of his Lincon Town Car, but this time he’s riding the high of having gotten an innocent man released from prison. Now he’s on the hunt for another wrongful conviction to appeal, while his half-brother, retired LAPD detective Harry Bosch, serves as Mickey’s driver and part-time investigator. Harry identifies a potential job for Mickey in the case of Lucinda Sanz, a woman sentenced to 11 years in prison for the murder of her police deputy ex-husband. While studying the autopsy photos in the Sanz case, Harry recognizes a tattoo on the deceased officer that marks him as a member of a sheriffs gang. Inconsistencies in the case, along with the incompetent counsel who advised Lucinda to plead no contest, are enough to convince Mickey to pursue a petition of habeas corpus. Then he learns that Lucinda’s ex may have been an FBI informant. Suddenly, it looks more and more likely that Lucinda was set up.
VERDICT Another solid series installment from Connelly. This Lincoln Lawyer/Harry Bosch crossover is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats as Mickey absorbs each legal setback. A brief appearance by Renée Ballard, as well as a few other familiar faces from the Harry Bosch universe, will delight fans.
