Mickey Haller gets the text, 'Call me ASAP - 187', and the
California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention.
Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and
they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When
Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a
prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and
narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds
out that she was back in LA and back in the life. Far from saving
her, Mickey may have been the one who put her in danger. Haunted by
the ghosts of his past, Mickey must work tirelessly and bring all
his skill to bear on a case that could mean his ultimate redemption
or proof of his ultimate guilt.
