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.

    "Good as ever"

    Michael Connolly is one of my favoite authors and this novel did not disappoint. Suprise twists are great and the narrator is first rate. Music, however, was a little overpowering.

    "Great New Character!"

    I bought this title on the strength of the author. I did not know it was a new story line. This was as good a story as Mr. Kellerman has given us before, but with this great new cast of characters.
    The narration on this is also superb.
    All in all I believe this is a very entertaining audio book.

    "No music, please!"

    This is a great read, and very well narrated.

    However, one thing which for me really spoils the pleasure is the frequent intrusion of music over the narration, completely distracting you and making it hard to work out what is being said. And it's so totally unnecessary. Whose bright idea was this?

    "Very good listen"

    This is the first book I have listened by Michael Connelly and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this book. Now I will try the Closers after reading the other reviews.

    "Fantastic audible book!!!"

    I found this book to be totally entertaining. The author gets to the point, and the story moves along quickly. You come to like & understand each character. The story twists with each case keeps things fresh and interesting. I didn't want to stop listening. The narrator was excellent for this book-- he speaks for each personality extremely well. I would highly recommend The Lincoln Lawyer, and want to listen to more of this authors books..

    "My first Connelly"

    A great listen. The author does not get into to much detail, but that leaves more room for excitement in the plot. An enjoyable story read by one of the better narrators I have heard lately. I would recommend this book highly to friends.
