Im an avid listener of Michael Connelly's books and this is his best yet. I found myself sitting in my car after my long commutes just to hear some more of this work. This book is hard to pull away, Im glad I wasn't reading this in book form I would never get any sleep.
Im also a big grism fan and this is just as good as any of his Suspensful law novels. Connelly does a great job building characters and never disappoints with his endings
Dept Q, Harry Hole... where are you?
I have never been disappointed with any of Connelly's novels. His research is impeccable. I love his characters and the mystery is always believable and unique.
The characters were well developed and brought to life by the excellent narrator. The book was filled with details that made it all quite believable. Nice twist towards the end. This narrator was fabulous. He doesn't just read the story...he adds passion and energy to the character's voices and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Get this book for your next trip!
Knowledge is knowing the way. Wisdom is looking for an alternative, more interesting road to get there. Audiobooks are that road.
This is my first Connelly book. I?m hooked. I felt like I was lost in Mickey Haller?s world. Connelly gave birth to Haller and Adam Grupper (the narrator) brought him to life. His narration of the other characters was excellent too. I felt like I was in the middle of a movie, not a book. A definite Oscar contender type of movie. His plot development was gripping from the beginning right down to the last 5 minutes of the book. A real courtroom legal mystery thriller. I wish I hadn?t heard this book already so I could start it all over again. I recommend it highly. It is very entertaining and you never know what plot twist is coming up next. You always know something is coming but you never know what. Go for it. You won?t be sorry.
Say something about yourself!
I am going to see what my attorney son thinks of this... but it was hard to stop listening since the plot has many unexpected twists and turns. Recently I have been able to predict the ending of most novels but in this case, my thoughts kept changing. Well worth the read or listen.
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
This one is from several years back in my Audible library. Meet Mickey Haller. He's a defense lawyer, one of the best. His office is his car, a Lincoln; he has two giving him a backup office just in case. His driver and bodyguard is an ex-client. There is also a girlfriend, a research assistant, and an investigator. LA super cop Harry Bosch is Mickey's half brother, same father. In the Lincoln Lawyer, Haller is enticed to change sides for a few months to act is special prosecutor to lend credibility to a very public case.
This is Book 1 in the marvelous 5 book (so far) Mickey Hallar series.
Novels do not get better than this!
Well if your looking for a book to fold into and loose sight of everything else?? This is it! Its a slow start with a roller coaster ride to the end. The narrator is outstanding....you'll love it!
I tend to read more non-Fiction books, but The Lincoln Lawyer is really making me reevaluate the constraint. I truly enjoyed the book, the characters, and the sleaziness of main character while at same time seeing him as someone doing good - in his own way. Great ending!!
This is a book that captures your imagination from the very beginning! The main character is imperfect but still quite likeable and very intelligent. The suspense kept me going up to the very end. This is one of those books that you don't want to stop listening to! I took my Ipod out of the car and kept listening in the house, something I never do! I'd never read or listened to any of Connelly's books before, but I may be hooked, now!
Connally can write and plot.
The narrator, Adam Grupper, brings the our hero to life beautifully, with his strengths and weaknesses.
(we'd like to have Mickey for our lawyer, but not necessarily our friend--on the other hand both his ex-wives still like him)
