Summary:

Mickey Haller has spent all his professional life afraid that he wouldn't recognize innocence if it stood right in front of him. 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 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.

The Lincoln Lawyer 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 Dostoyevsky of crime literature."

Genres:

  • duke

    Great way to understand life and its perils. Story sets you up for a great ride filled with dangerous twists.

  • Leigh K

    Narrator is great but the story is long drawn out and a little boring.

  • William D Lurie

    This is the third time I have listened to the book since it came out in audio format, and I enjoyed it more each time. I have every book Connelly wrote and this is probably one of his best. My only regret is that there are not enough books in this series.

  • Rhonda Kelley

    Excellent story and the narrator's voice actually fits the character. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and this one is a standout. Enjoyed it from beginning to end.

  • Carole Butler

    This book was pretty good. Not the best book ever but entertaining. It got better toward the end.

  • Eratosthenes

    This book was most excellent. I rarely pay attention to every word, but I did on this one.
