5.0 out of 5 stars Third strong book in the series, 9 Dec. 2013
This review is from: The Gods of Guilt (Harry Bosch Series) (Hardcover)
This is an intricate legal mystery that delves back into lawyer Mickey Haller's past. Years ago he tried to help a female acquaintance who was not exactly a friend or lover, but someone whom he couldn't help liking and couldn't quite forget. Now he takes a case that turns everything that he remembers about her upside-down. Meanwhile, federal agents look like enemies and cartel assassins look like allies. I like how the author does not shy away from making Haller utterly amoral. As a defense lawyer, he will represent anybody. He manipulates people and vents his impatience by snapping at his employees. He does things in the very first scene that could probably get him disbarred were anyone to realize the full scope of his scheming. But he also misses his teenage daughter, who has written him off due to his unsavory profession, and he feels terrible guilt over disappointing her. He is a complex character, and fascinating to read about. This is as strong a book as The Lincoln Lawyer and The Brass Verdict. I like Haller's sly comments on "the movie" made about him (you know, the one starring Michael Connelly).
