The Lincoln Lawyer- Michael Connelly

There is no client as scary as an innocent man. From the bestselling author of THE GODS OF GUILT and BRASS VERDICT comes the first in the Mickey Haller legal thrillers.

Mickey is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defence attorney who operates out of the back of his car, a Lincoln, taking whatever cases the system throws in his path. He’s been a defence lawyer for a long time, and he knows just how to work the legal systems. When a Beverly Hills rich boy is arrested for brutally beating a woman, Haller has his first high-paying client in years. The evidence mounts on the defence’s side, and Haller might even be in the rare position of defending a client who is actually innocent.

But then the case starts to fall apart, neither the suspect nor the victim are quite who they seem – and Haller quickly discovers that when you swim with the sharks, it’s easy to wind up as prey.

The first legal thriller from Detective Harry Bosch creator Michael Connelly is a knockout … Oozing hard-boiled Los Angeles attitude both in the car and in the courtroom, Mickey’s a treat ― TIME OUT

There are moments of real tension, before Connelly, the master storyteller, comes up with a solution worthy of John Grisham. A fine start to a welcome new series ― SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

A legal thriller may be a new departure for Michael Connelly, but it has all the hallmarks that have rightly made his Harry Bosch books so popular: credible characters, skilful scene-setting, a gripping plot and utter authenticity ― EVENING STANDARD

Potent, stand-alone thriller … Brilliantly plotted and played out, with court scenes which winch up the tension to breaking point. New territory for Connelly, author of the peerless Harry Bosch series, but immediately expert, exciting and absorbing. Connelly writes the kind of book that dares you to put it down. Chances are that you won’t. Too much is likely to happen while you leave it unattended ― LITERARY REVIEW

THE LINCOLN LAWYER is a pitch-perfect LA noir legal thriller that proves what I’ve been thinking for a long time now, that Michael Connelly is one of the very best writers working today in any genre. A modern Raymond Chandler for what he calls ‘the world without truth’ — Carlos Ruiz Zafon ― SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

The thriller of the year ― THE MIRROR
