Here's an overview of what happened in that book, provided by GoodReads:
Mickey Haller was in trouble. He expanded into execution defense, only to see one of his clients charged with murdering the bank she blamed for trying to take her home.
Mitch risks his team to exonerate Lisa Trammell despite the evidence and his own suspicions that his client is guilty. Haller, too, was attacked shortly after learning that the victim had his own black market - convinced he was on the right track.
Despite the dangers and uncertainties, Haller delivered the best defense of his career at trial, with the final surprise following the verdict. "

Before we get into what we can and can expect before returning for season two, here's a quick recap of season one.
We follow Micky Haller as he descends into the abyss after inheriting Jerry Vincent's practices and businesses. The biggest case in season one is Trevor Elliot. Although Elliott eventually escaped court, he died after being shot. We still don't know if Elliott committed the alleged crimes against him.

Mitch came out on the other side (several bruises and abrasions), fully scarred and able to continue working on his case after his long absence from the industry.
The season ended with Mickey being able to surf again, but the tattooed man who had lingered in the background throughout Season 1 watched from a distance before the episode was cut short.
Cisco also has its own problems. He left the Saints, but let Mitch foot the bill. What's going to happen there? We'll have to wait.
As you may know, season 1 of the Netflix show adapted the second book in the series, rather than retelling the first book we saw in the Matthew McConaughey movie. There are a few tweaks, but we're basically staying with the same story as the source material.
