The bestselling legal thriller has charismatic defense attorney Mickey Haller taking on a slam-dunk court case involving a Beverly Hills playboy -- but as it spirals into a nightmare, he finds himself in a fight for his life.   Mickey Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense attorney who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, traveling between the far-flung courthouses of Los Angeles to defend clients of every kind. Bikers, con artists, drunk drivers, drug dealers -- they're all on Mickey Haller's client list. For him, the law is rarely about guilt or innocence, it's about negotiation and manipulation. Sometimes it's even about justice.   A Beverly Hills playboy arrested for attacking a woman he picked up in a bar chooses Haller to defend him, and Mickey has his first high-paying client in years. It is a defense attorney's dream, what they call a franchise case. And as the evidence stacks up, Haller comes to believe this may be the easiest case of his career. Then someone close to him is murdered and Haller discovers that his search for innocence has brought him face-to-face with evil as pure as a flame. To escape without being burned, he must deploy every tactic, feint, and instinct in his arsenal -- this time to save his own life.

  • Best book I have read this year!

    If In had to pick a book to read for the rest of my life it would be this one. The characters are flawed, realistic and they have a great sense of humor. Mickey is a lawyer you want to win every case that comes this way. Cannot wait for next book!
  • Excellent detective book

    By MerlotSailor
    Nice twists and turns that you never see coming.
  • One of Connelly's best

    By Zafon fan
    As good as the Harry Bosch books are, Connelly is often at his best when stepping away from the character. This book is no exception. He really hit this one out of the park. It's no wonder this book went on to inspire a new series.

  • Great Book, Loved the Lawyer

    By Rhonda4au
    Great book. Enjoyed it from the moment I opened the book. After I read the book, I had to see the movie. Enjoyed both of them. I liked the look, like the author and his style of writing.
