Availability: In Stock

In tough times, crime is one of the few things that still pays, but if defense attorney Mickey Haller was expecting an uptick in business during the economic downturn, the reality is a different story. Even people needing legal representation to keep them out of jail are having to make cut-backs, it seems. In fact, the most significant part of Mickeys business right now is not about keeping clients out of jail but about keeping a roof over their heads, as the foreclosure boom hits thousands of people who were granted unrealistic mortgages in the good times and now face being kicked to the curb by ruthless corporations. Lisa Trammel had been a client of Mickeys for eight months - his very first foreclosure case, in fact - and although so far hed managed to stop the bank from taking her house, the strain and sense of injustice are beginning to take their toll, and the bank had recently got a restraining order to prevent her protesting against their fraudulent practices. But now the banks CEO, Mitchell Bondurant, has been found in the banks car park with a bullet in his brain, and Lisa is about to be indicted for murder. For Mickey, its back to what he does best on the biggest stage of all, but if he thought defending Lisa Trammel was going to be a walk in the park, hed be wrong. Not only is he about to learn some startling truths about his client, but also about himself, and by the time the verdict is in, Mickeys whole world will have been turned upside down.
