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.


What the Critics Say

2005 Publishers Weekly Listen Up Award, Mystery/Thriller

Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader

A taut legal thriller from Conelley, whose gritty crime style translates well to the world of his new character: criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller. This guy is REAL. The L.A. locale is real and accurate. The dialogue is crisp, authentic and economical. The reader: Adam Grupper is fantastic. He truly brought Mickey Haller to life. I cannot recommend this title highly enough. I have only found three other books on Audible read by Adam Grupper (only one a novel). I will check them all out, and hope to see his name on more novels in the future.

Harry Bosch watch out

I am a huge Connelly fan and love all the Harry Bosch stories. So when I found out The Lincoln Lawyer did not have Harry, I was worried. But, I am here to tell you that there is nothing to worry about...Connelly is first and foremost an excellent story teller. I LOVED this book. My husband, brother and I listened to this book on a road trip. We reached our destination before the book was we did what only seemed right, we listened to the remainder of the story while sitting in the vehicle (in the driveway)!
In summary - HIGHLY recommended
