Season 1 will follow the events of  Connelly’s second novel, The Brass Verdict. LA-based lawyer Mickey Haller’s past two years were good. He makes a comeback to the courtroom only to defend Walter Elliott. His client is accused of killing his wife and her lover, Jerry Vincent. But his biggest case yet puts him right on the track of Vincent’s killer.

Things get worse at the entry of Harry Bosch. The man is determined to use Haller as bait to find the killer.

Here’s the official Netflix synopsis:

Sidelined after an accident, hotshot Los Angeles lawyer Mickey Haller restarts his career — and his trademark Lincoln — when he takes on a murder case.”
