Overview

The Lincoln Lawyer (Mickey Haller Series #1) by Michael Connelly

New York Times bestselling 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 right in front of him. But what he should have been on the watch for was evil.<

Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend the 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.

I bought this title as a bargain book having no prior experience with this author. This turns out to be a great read, with suspense, danger, courtroom drama, and a plot full of twists and turns. The characters are drawn well and the narrative is crisp without being shallow. Very satisfying and right up there with the best from Turow and Diehl.

This was so well done, you hated the characters and loved them at the same time! It delved into the gray areas of the legal profession as a whole and of course nothing is ever easy or perfect. I read a lot of (ashamed to admit) legal-type mysteries but this was one of my favorites from a sheer fun perspective.

I have read so many books and I can not believe how good this book was I can't stop talking about it to my friends. If it had been a movie I'd been on the edge of my seat. Never a dull moment. I really do hope that he does more of Mickey Haller stories. I will be reading all his other books as well. I can't say enough about this. When I first started reading this book I was so excited when I read he was going to Lancaster court because that is where I lived so I was really getting into that and then the story just got so good.

I recommend any book by Michael Connolly. I've read them all and very few authors keep me on the edge of my seat like he does. I have yet to read one of his books that I wished I hadn't. I buy each as soon as it comes out. You won't regret reading anything by this author.

The Lincoln Lawyer is a tightly plotted novel of intrigue and suspense. It's fast reading that keeps you engrossed with no false twists or convenient endings. I liked it a lot.

Fabulous book. I read it before the movie came out and have read all of the Mickey Haller series books. You can't go wrong with any of them. Michael Connelly is a great author. Can't wait for the next Mickey Haller book...until then I have been getting to know Harry Bosch, another great series from Connelly.

Everytime I do a review of a Connelly book, I say the same thing - this man is not capable of writing a boring or bad novel. Like Harry Bosch, Mickey Haller is definitely flawed, but knows and learns life's lessons along the way. Haller going through the trial and playing the 'cat and mouse' game was great. I thorougly enjoyed Mickey's character and can't wait to buy 'Brass Verdict'. I've read all Connelley's books - he never disappoints.

I haven't seen the movie, but after reading the book I'll probably get the movie. I really like the author's writing style. He made it a very comfortable read. Will be checking out more the of Mickey Haller Series.

One of the best books i'v ever read

Michael Connelly quickly creates such vivid and interesting characters, then spins the story so fast that it becomes difficult to put his books down. I've read all of his books and while I wasn't excited with the idea of a story about a lawyer or a courtroom drama, I knew Connelly would not let me down. He exceeded my expectations. I'm amazed at how quickly Connelly is able to get new books out and hope he keeps up his current pace. The way he weaves characters through different books, I look forward to Mickey Haller meeting Harry Bosch.

Slow pace for one third of the story but a page turner for the rest of it. Unespected ending. Interesting combination of two cases in one story.

I saw the movie on tv first then read the book. It really is a good story.

Great read. Bought it started it finished it. Couldn't put it down. Wanted to know what was next. I am certainly recommending this book as a great read. Not a 5 star because of a couple of issues that I felt were just a little to unbelievable but the 4 rating is certainly enough to recommend the book. Enjoy !!

This is one of those rare times when I picked up the book after I saw the movie. And I'm glad I did. At once, the first person narrative of this lawyer that conducts his business in the back of a Lincoln while traversing Los Angeles grabbed me and didn't let go. As much as I liked the movie, the book impressed me so much I went on to read two more books in the series. Connelly is in top form throughout, and you owe it to yourself to read at least this one book of his and see whether you want to join him in any of his other stories.

Bought it because it was on sale, read it because it was good. Once started, this book was hard to put down.

This was an action packed story line from start to finish. There were a couple of twist and turns that I did not expect or see coming, but was great additions to the story line. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
