The Lincoln Lawyer (Mickey Haller) - Michael Connelly

The Lincoln Lawyer (Mickey Haller) - Michael Connelly

It's always good to welcome a Michael Connelly novel, and The Lincoln Lawyer is a strong ... more

addition to the Connelly bookshelf. This
stand-alone legal thriller has all the adroit
plotting and no-nonsense prose that are Connelly's
trademarks, with a particularly strong
protagonist. In the hierarchy of American lawyers,
Lincoln lawyers are not held in the highest
esteem. These are criminal defence attorneys who
run their practices from a travelling Lincoln car,
traversing the county of Los Angeles to hoover up
whatever work is available, however basic.
Connelly's tarnished hero is Mickey Heller, who
has fine-tuned this less-than-impressive side of
the legal profession to such a degree that few can
match him: he knows all the ins and outs of the
system, including precisely who to slip a
back-hander to when appropriate. But Mickey finds
a way to move upmarket when he acquires a
well-heeled client. A rich young man from Beverly
Hills has been arrested for savagely assaulting a
woman, and the case falls in Mickey's lap. And
though the lawyer is used to defending clients who
are guilty as sin, it actually looks (for once)
that his client is innocent. But Lincoln lawyers
like Mickey are fully aware of the lottery that is
their profession, and he isn't too surprised when
the case goes pear-shaped. But (to his dismay)
Mickey slowly learns that neither his client nor
the victim in the case is quite what they seem to
be, and soon there's a lot more than a penny-ante
case at stake, with Mickey's life quite as much at
risk as any reputation he might have.  Connelly
fans (an ever-growing army) will be pleased to
hear that all the customary traits are fully on
offer here, with one key component even more
finely honed than usual: the gritty, idiomatic
dialogue, which is richer and more entertaining
than usual. --Barry Forshaw

"Michael Connelly's The Lincoln Lawyer"

AdvantagesThe repercussions of defending baddies and being haunted by honest ones hitting the slammer.

DisadvantagesThe glorification of making big bucks by defending scum bags.

""Michael Connelly's The Lincoln Lawyer" "There is no client as scary, as an innocent Man" - J. Michael Haller, Criminal Defense Attorney, L.A.1962 The best reason why I enjoyed reading Michael Connelly's The Lincoln Lawyer, is the fact that I was able to get an inside look into the "Lawyer Morality". It is no surprise that to be an attorney, is the ability to be able to produce major amount of dollars. Yet, its not as simple as saying ..." Read review

Off the back of a limo

AdvantagesEasy reading, quick to read and entertaining

DisadvantagesWasn't quite the book I was expecting from the title

"...a really good book at the moment, I'll lend it to you when I finish it.' 'Great', I say, knowing that my sister rarely lends out her books, but, when she does, they turn out to be pretty good. 'What's is called?' 'The Lincoln Lawyer', she says. This does not impress me much, and I screw up my nose. 'No,' she says, 'it's really good. It's about a lawyer who works out of his car, which is a Lincoln.' Now this sounds a little more fascinating, and ..." Read review

The Lincoln Lawyer by M Connely

AdvantagesFast paced, full of unexpected twists

DisadvantagesAssumes an awareness of the Calaifornia Legal system

"...have been put off by the idea of a novel concerning a criminal defence attoney- but you have to read this. With all the murder, back-stabbing, office politics and intrigue of his Bosch Novels Conelly has created yet another classic book and character. Micky Haller isn't the most moral person on the planet but he is trying to be- if only for his kid's sake. Operating largely form his car he battles with tyhe noral dilemma of protecting his client ..." Read review
