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.

"A fast-paced, unpredictable ride." (Bookmarks Magazine)
"[The Lincoln Lawyer] has all the right stuff: a sinuous plot, crisp dialogue, and a roster of reprehensible characters." (Booklist, starred review)
This really new to me. 67 years young and still learning!
Someone that likes bad language repeated in your ear!
No, I have not and will not in the future.
I could not finish the book.
The second part was discussing by using the F'n word in every sentence.
Grupper brings every character alive. Not only are the accents wonderful to hear, but the attitudes of each comes through to the degree you are seeing them as well as hearing them. The story becomes true, the participants are real.
Not this version. The performance is good but the music coming every now and then and with no relation to the story is ennoying. It nearly covers the voice of the reader.
One of the joys of audio books is listening to great narration and unfortunately, I just wanted this to end.
PLEASE!!! Do not change the chapter numbers of a book. The book's chapters have been cut into with Audible's chapters. Very annoying. And PLEASE DO NOT add a musical interlude!! The music has been in the middle of a chapter, over the actor's voices so much that it is hard to hear, and it has nothing to do with the mood of the book!!!!
I really enjoyed this book; it kept me wanting to know more. The narration was very good and kept a good pace. You wont want to put this one down, it will keep your interest to the end.
It seems to me that Connelly is taking the Grisham/King route to padding his retirement. Pumping out the books using a cookie cutter formula. Don't waste your money.
I've read every MC book, and have enjoyed some more than others, but this one is garbage. The characters are thin, the plot predictable, and the pace is slow.
I am a M.Connelly fan and have enjoyed the 4 or 5 priors books I have listened to. The narration of this book was well done. The Lincoln Lawyer however was almost two different books. The first half was a narration of court procedures 101. Boring. It was like the author wanted to impress me with the minutia of being a defense lawyer. I kept waiting for the mystery, the story, where was it? Finally it started to develope. The second half was a good story and enjoyable to follow. Unfortunately I don't want to listen to that much to get to the nut. I enjoy good character development but I need a reason to be interested in the character. I listen to 2 to 3 books a month, mostly mysteries, and this one is very close to the bottom.
