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)
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....
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!
This book is just awesome. The story is intriguing right from the start. The narrator is one of the best I have heard, no accent, clear voice.
I highly recommend this audio-book. For just one credit, it's absolutely worth it.
I enjoyed this book. It had enough unpredictable moments to keep you engaged and is very well read. I would recommend it for people that enjoy detective and courtroom plots.
I loved the insite into the criminal atty's job. This book helped me understand why the legal system works the way it does!
