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.

The book is a fast paced fiction. I would like to comment on the narration in this review. The narration is just fantastic. The narrator puts on different accents which some times almost sounds like it's multiple people narrating. Listening to this audio book was almost like watching a movie without removing the imagination part that a movie takes away from a book.

This is a great story very convincingly presented by Adam Grupper. He brought the characters to life and held my attention while I was on my exercise bike preparing for the London to Brighton bike ride. I was realy sorry it had to end and found myself immediately looking for more of the same from Connelly by Grupper, sadly without success. Some more please Adam!

At first I felt I could not get used to Adams Grupper as a narrator but the authors work makes the book irristable and Adam does free himself into the characters eventually making them come alive one by one. There are twists and turns which keep one elevated wanting to get to the finale yet not wanting to finish the book! On the down side I do feel the occassional background music [ or excuse for music ] very off putting, distracting, irritating and completely unnecessary, it does not enhance the story nor does it improve the production - 'audibly' The Lincoln Lawyer is enough of a very enjoyable experience without it.

Shame about the music played between chapters; very annoying, unnecessary and tacky. Otherwise all round good listening.
Before Matthew McConaughey nailed his Oscar for 'Dallas Buyers Club' and great critical acclaim for his role in the HBO series, 'True Detective', he gave a fantastic performance as Mickey Haller in the somewhat underrated film, 'Lincoln Lawyer'. Before the film came the excellent, slow-burning, legal thriller novel of the same name by Michael Connelly. The first in a series about defence attorney Haller, Connelly's novel engages from chapter one. Adam Grupper's narration is also thoroughly engaging, with effective character voices typified by his excellent interpretation of Haller as the 1st person narrator. If you know the film but not the book, you should definitely check this out. I did it in that order and enjoyed every minute of the 11+ hours on offer here. Fans of John Grisham would be wise to add this one to their Audible collection too.- 5 stars.
