Mickey finds himself with a franchise case--a potentially high profile crime involving a wealthy client who can afford to pay to fight the charges brought against him all the way. This is a case that can help Haller pay his bills for a long time, and it will elevate his profile, and a successful defense of his client will help him find even more work. But when he discovers that his client may have been responsible for a killing that someone else is doing time for because of Mickey's representation, Haller finds himself trapped in a deep conflict between wanting to do right by his wrongly incarcerated client and the requirements to protect his current client and attorney-client privilege.
This is an exciting story, with a number of potentially unexpected twists (unless you've seen the movie, of course). But it is also a thoughtful exploration of the responsibilities of defense lawyers and the challenges they face in representing their clients, especially those who are truly innocent.
Released for the 2022 What's in a Name challenge, the 2022 Movie Books challenge, and the 2022 TV Books challenge.
