[This] Scott Turow-style court drama, starring both of Connelly's favourite characters, is as exciting as anything this formidable writer has ever produced
Connelly masterfully manages to marry an absorbing courtroom drama with a tense and exciting thriller of detection
The novel has a gripping clarity from the off, and very quickly establishes a gripping momentum. ... it's another expertly handled tale from a born storyteller that blazes into an incendiary denouement
Connelly explodes courtroom fireworks.
This novel is further proof that this writer is on a roll. ... Connelly's background as a police reporter gives his books the powerful verisimilitude that few possess and balancing the police and legal shenanigans makes for wonderfully involving reading
Connelly writes in a tough, unsentimental way and creates a stunning tale that doesn't let go until the final page.
This is vastly superior stuff, from America's greatest living crime writer
An absolutely fabulous thriller, one of the best I have ever read
