Haller is Burdened by Too Many Plot Lines

by jjares on Mar 16, 2014

Mickey Haller, moving through heavy traffic in Los Angeles in his Lincoln Town Car, is heavily into redemption. He signs on to defend a digital pimp from the murder of one of Mickey?s former clients. However, Gloria Dayton wasn?t just a client, she was a prostitute that he thought he had rescued and helped get out of ?the business.? The story starts out simply enough but quickly turns into a hunt for the real killer ? someone who is supposed to be protecting the public from murder and mayhem. Then the story tilts and includes a cartel gangster, a disbarred lawyer and his incompetent son/lawyer and a crooked former cop. Mickey spends a great deal of time mulling over his past and present mistakes. I found the inclusion of a missing story thread strange. The book mentions that Haller has recently lost his bid for DA of Los Angeles, mostly due to a scandal ? he?d helped free a client who subsequently killed 2 people close to his daughter). This problem, plus the loss of communication with his daughter, adds to Haller?s angst. The best part of the story was the addition of the ?Legal Eagle? ? a retired and very ill former attorney who serves as a mentor and sounding board for Haller. He helps Mickey address some of the mistakes that are hounding his peace of mind. I found the plot to be too convoluted; it simply didn?t seem realistic ? just dramatic. I enjoy Haller in court and the constant referral to his former wife and daughter seemed to be off-task. After awhile, it was competing with the murder case. The book seemed too plot-heavy; this is no ?he shot her? kind of case. Then Haller finds a new love interest. Whew! That?s a lot of action for one book. Haller has emerged from his sleazy-lawyer persona to become a ?top of the game? lawyer. In court, Haller can?t be beat; but the plots and subplots dragged things down.
