(From the publisher):
Longtime defense attorney Mickey Haller never thought he could be persuaded to cross the aisle and work for the prosecution. Then convicted child killer Jason Jessup, imprisoned for twenty-four years, is granted a retrial based on new DNA evidence. Haller is convinced Jessup is guilty, and he takes the case on the condition that he get to choose his investigator, LAPD detective Harry Bosch, and his second chair, deputy DA Maggie McPherson.
But there's a serious political taint on the case, and Haller and McPherson must fact off against a celebrity defense attorney who has already started trying it in the media. Bosch searches for the runaway eyewitness who was the key to Jessup's original conviction, but that trail has long gone cold. Jessup, out on bail, grandstands for eager press by the day, but his nocturnal actions make Haller and Bosch fear the worst: this killer may have just gotten started.
