But what he should have been on the watch for was evil. Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense attorney who operates out of the back seat 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.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.
