The Lincoln Lawyer | [Michael Connelly]

The Lincoln Lawyer

Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly delivers his first legal thriller, an incendiary tale about a cynical defense attorney whose one remaining spark of integrity may cost him his life.

Mickey Haller has spent all his professional life afraid that he wouldn't recognize innocence if it stood in front of him. Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients.

From bikers to con artists to drunk drivers and drug dealers, they're all on Mickey Haller's client list. But when a Beverly Hills rich boy is arrested for brutally beating a woman, Haller has his first high-paying client in years. It's a franchise case, and he's sure it will be a slam dunk in the courtroom. For once, he may be defending a client who is actually innocent.

But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth, and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame. To escape without being burned, Haller must use all of his skills to manipulate a system in which he no longer believes.

    "Camel Club"

    Excellent development of characters and a fantastic story line. One of the best I have heard since Wilber Smith's 30 novels

    "Couldn't leave my car"

    Grabbed by attention immediately and didn't let it go. The narrator reads in sort of a "Sam Spade" style which fits the book perfectly. I'm a lawyer and it hits the issues we deal with regularly, but in a more exciting and dramatic way.

    "A great book for the road"

    This title was my 7th audiobook, and in my opinion the best so far. The storyline is strong without a lot of unnecessary detail or tangents, which are often harder to follow in audio format. The narration is good, clear, and easy to listen to. I listen on 3 hours trips out of state, this really made the last two trips fly by. I couldn't wait to hear the rest of the story each time I reluctantly went back to work. The other reviews are correct, a great buy.

    "I quickly tired of Grisham but not Connelly"

    Give this one a try. Connelly is a great writer who crafts interesting characters be they major or minor. IMO, he managed to make Mickey Haller just balance the line between sleazy and honorable. A good brain candy listen.

    "Boooooring"

    If you are looking for a book to tell you the day to day life of an attorney that works out of his car this is a great book. If you are looking for suspence and interesting character development look elsewhere. Great book for someone who needs boring material to fall asleep to.

    "Awsome audio book"

    This audiobook is very good. This is one of those books that sucks you in and makes you want to listen.

    Great story, Great narrator!

    I have listed to 40 or 50 audiobooks and the narrator for this book is one of the best I have ever heard. Anyone that listens to lots of audiobooks knows that a narrator can make or break the audio version of a book.
