Michael Connelly - The Lincoln Lawyer (2nd Hand Paperback)

SKU B001857

The Lincoln Lawyer is a 2005 novel, the 16th by American crime writer Michael Connelly. It introduces Los Angeles attorney Mickey Haller, half-brother of Connelly's mainstay character detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch.

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.

It was adapted as a 2011 film of the same name, starring Matthew McConaughey.

"One of Connelly's best. I'm not usually a fan of novels with a legal setting, but his ability to sustain tension and weave a many-layered story with skillfully drawn characters makes for an unputdownable read." - Goodreads Review.
