When Hollywood lawyer Jerry Vincent is murdered, Haller inherits his biggest case to date: the defense of Walter Elliott, a prominent studio executive accused of the murder of his wife and lover. But as Haller prepares for the case that could launch him into the big time, he learns that Vincent’s killer could come and get him next. Enter Harry Bosch. Determined to find Vincent’s killer, he doesn’t object to Haller’s use as bait. But as the danger mounts and the stakes rise, these two loners realize their only choice is to work together.
