When Hollywood lawyer Jerry Vincent is murdered, Mickey Haller (of "The Lincoln Lawyer" fame) inherits his biggest case yet: the defense of Walter Elliott, a prominent studio executive accused of murdering his wife and her lover. But as Haller prepares for the case that could launch him into the big time, he learns that Vincent's killer may be coming for him next. Enter Harry Bosch. Determined to find Vincent's killer, he is not opposed to using Haller as bait. But as danger mounts and the stakes rise, these two loners realize their only choice is to work together.--Jacket

In his latest novel, Connelly joins together for the first time two of his most memorable characters: Mickey Haller and Hieronymus (Harry) Bosch. An old rival of Mickey's is murdered and he is appointed by the court to pick-up the deceased lawyer's 30 cases. One of the cases is big-time Robert-Blake-O.J.-Simpson-like; a televised courtroom drama starring a Hollywood studio-head-defendant on trial for allegedly shooting his wife and her lover. If you are an avid Connelly fan you'll enjoy the banter between the boys in this book. The ending might be the biggest surprise.
