This #1 bestselling legal thriller from Michael Connelly is a stunning display of novelistic mastery - as human, as gripping, and as whiplash-surprising as any novel yet from the writer Publishers Weekly has called "today's Dostoevsky of crime literature."Mickey Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense attorney who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, traveling between the far-flung courthouses of Los Angeles to defend clients of every kind. Bikers, con artists, drunk drivers, drug dealers - they're all on Mickey Haller's client list. For him, the law is rarely about guilt or innocence, it's about negotiation and manipulation. Sometimes it's even about justice.A Beverly Hills playboy arrested for attacking a woman he picked up in a bar chooses Haller to defend him, and Mickey has his first high-paying client in years. It is a defense attorney's dream, what they call a franchise case. And as the evidence stacks up, Haller comes to believe this may be the easiest case of his career. Then someone close to him is murdered and Haller discovers that his search for innocence has brought him face-to-face with evil as pure as a flame. To escape without being burned, he must deploy every tactic, feint, and instinct in his arsenal - this time to save his own life.

5.0 Great First Book in Series
I have been so busy that no new books have grabbed me. I have tried a few and abandoned them all. I finally picked this book up in order to finally move off the BL space that I have been on for I think 3 weeks now. I am so glad that I read the first book in the Mickey Haller series. This book is fir...

4.0 Piąty świadek
Kiedy Michael Connelly obok swojego sztandarowego cyklu z charakterystycznym nieprzekupnym i idealistycznym gliniarzu Harrym Boschu umieścił nowy - z trudnym do scharakteryzowania prawnikiem Mickym Hallerem - chyba nikt się nie spodziewał (autor chyba też) że te cykle zaczną się wzajemnie przenikać ...

4.0 "There is no client as scary as an innocent man."
~~Moved from GR~~ The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly After about 15 books in which defence attorneys are vilified as evil greedy scumbags who use despicable tactics to free their evil guilty scumbag clients, Connelly has finally produced a story told from the perspective of one such evil gre...

A few months ago I attempted to watch the movie version of The Lincoln Lawyer. I don't think I made it 15 minutes before my husband nudged me awake. Still, when this book appeared as a Kindle Daily Deal I couldn't resist. Hey, books are almost always better than the movies, and to be fair, there was...
