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.

    "this one will spoil you"

    I'm a lawyer who has done his turn as a prosecutor, and an avid audiobook suspense "reader." I have to say this one was satisfying on every level. Haller is funny and real- a composite of some of the better criminal defense lawyers I've met. Great story, well read. It grabbed me from the first sentence and never let go. If this were my first audiobook it would set the bar so high I would be disappointed most of the time.

    "My Mistake Lead to a Great Book!"

    I stumbled across this book when doing a search on "Michael Crichton." I was well into the reading before I detected the error. This book has the same feel as you find in Crichton and at times you would think you were reading Grisham. This first Legal novel by Connelly is creative, action-packed, with multiple story lines occuring simultaneously challenging one's attention to the main theme. The outcome cannot be predicted and is somewhat shocking. This was truly one those jewels you just can't put down. My orginal blunder has enabled me to add another favorite author to my short list. My only criticism of the book is the often used profanity. I know its use reflects real world drama. I just think the story could be told with less raw dialog. It's still a Five in my book.

    "Fast and Fascinating"

    This is a great legal thriller and an excellent narration that often kept me in my car because I just needed to keep listening! The main character, Mickey Haller, is appealing. The first person narrative writing style was, at times, a bit drawn out. We hear practically every thought the character had. If I was reading this as a hard copy, I'd be skimming past some of this internal dialogue. On the other hand, I'd miss important elements of the character development. You get a really good sense of this character and what drives him to push himself beyond his former cynical attitude as a criminal attorney. Very skilled in the courtroom and driven soley to earn his fees, he was known amongst the small time criminals as being adept at using technicalities to exonerate his clients. A new case -- and the chance to earn a very large fee -- challenges both his talent and the ethics of the client-attorney relationship. The buildup towards the finale is tense and gripping. Don't pass this one up!

    "Don't pass this one up ....."

    Oh my! This was the best audiobook I have purchased so far - I may listen to it again. Mr. Grupper should do more audio books as he was wonderful. The story line was excellent - it kept me guessing and the ending was surprising. Will there be anymore of this character in the future?

    The only drawback was the music - it's too corny....

    "Great story, great narration"

    My first Michael Connelly book and it was just what I wanted: fast-paced, interesting characters, plot-driven. And great narration. Mr. Grupper was terrific. Best thing I could say: I could not put it down!

    "Worth the time"

    Intresting and keeps you guessing - I found it a little slow at times but only because I can't wait for the next turn of events.
