Mickey Haller has been in the business a long time, and he knows just how to work it, how to grease the right wheels and palms, to keep the engine of justice working in his favour. When a Beverly Hills rich boy is arrested for brutally beating a woman, Haller has his first high-paying client in years. The evidence mounts on the defence's side, and he is sure this is going to be a slam-dunk. He might even be in the rare position of defending a client who is actually innocent. But as Haller knows, criminal cases can turn on a dime; when his case starts to fall apart and neither the suspect nor the victim are quite who they seem, Haller quickly discovers that when you swim with the sharks, it's easy to wind up as prey.Read Less

Excellent writing - Riveting Story!
Great summer reading. If you like stories about lawyering and suspense - then this book is for you. Saw the movie and thought it did the book justice. Would recommend highly.

I read everything by Michael Connelly and this audiobook was great -- unabridged and the reader was excellent too. This is about a new character by Michael Connelly. Not as compelling as Harry Bosch, but nonetheless a great story with lots of twists and suspense. I can never get too much of Michael Connelly!

I am an avid reader but have never read anything by this author. "Lincoln Lawyer" was a good read....Just a tad wordy with the legal details and plot development but worth it ! The author's writing style makes it feel like you are in the middle of a court room with him. Very Interesting plot. The book is suspenseful. and keeps you guessing. This book has it all....Love, Sex, Murder, Violence and Mystery.
