Author: Michael Connelly Narrator: Len Cariou Release Date: May 2005

In Los Angeles in 1988, a 16-year-old girl disappeared from her home and was later found dead of a gunshot wound to the chest. The death appeared at first to be a suicide, but some of the evidence contradicted that scenario, and detectives came to believe this was in fact a murder. Despite a by-the-book investigation, no one was ever charged.Now Detective Harry Bosch is back with the LAPD with the sole mission of closing unsolved cases, and this girl's death is the first he's given. A DNA match makes the case very much alive again, and it turns out to be anything but cold. The ripples from this death have destroyed at least two other lives, and everywhere he probes, Bosch finds hot grief, hot rage, and a bottomless well of betrayal and malice.And it's not just the girl's family and friends whose lives Bosch is stirring up afresh. With each new development, Harry Bosch finds increasing resistance from within the police force itself. Old enemies are close at hand. Even as he pushes relentlessly to find the truth, Bosch has to wonder if this assignment was intended to be his last. Digging up the past may heal old wounds, or it may expose new, searing ones.

The Lincoln Lawyer Audiobook

The Lincoln Lawyer

Author: Michael Connelly Narrator: Adam Grupper Release Date: October 2005

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 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. The Lincoln Lawyer is a stunning display of novelistic mastery - as human, as gripping, and as whiplash-surprising as any novel yet from the writer Publishers Weekly has called "today's Dostoyevsky of crime literature."

The Lincoln Lawyer Novels: The Lincoln Lawyer, The Brass Verdict, The Reversal Audiobook

The Lincoln Lawyer Novels: The Lincoln Lawyer, The Brass Verdict, The Reversal

Author: Michael Connelly Narrator: Adam Grupper, Peter Giles Release Date: July 2011

For the first time in one volume, the three novels that introduced the Lincoln Lawyer, Mickey Haller, who learns that "There is no client as scary as an innocent man." The Lincoln Lawyer For Mickey Haller, the law is rarely about guilt or innocence, it's about negotiation and manipulation. When he gets hired by a Beverly Hills rich boy arrested for assault, Mickey sees a franchise case: a long, expensive trial with maximum billable hoursuntil it puts him facetoface with pure evil and with a man who may truly be innocent. For a lawyer who has always gone for the easy score, getting justice means risking everything. The Brass Verdict When a former colleague is murdered, Mickey inherits his biggest case yet: defending a Hollywood producer accused of killing his wife and her lover. Haller scrambles to prepare for trial, and learns that the killer may be coming for him next. Enter LAPD Detective Harry Bosch, who will do whatever it takes to crack the case, including using Mickey as bait. As danger quickly mounts, these two loners realize that their only chance is to work together. The Reversal Mickey is recruited to prosecute the highprofile retrial of Jason Jessup, a convicted child killer, exonerated after twentyfour years by new DNA evidence. Convinced Jessup is guilty, Haller brings in Harry Bosch as his investigator. With their key witness missing, and the odds and evidence against them, Bosch and Haller must nail a sadistic killer before he kills again. Together, these three exhilarating, fiercely paced novels show that "Connelly is a master...once he has you on board, turning pages, you won't want to climb off" (Boston Globe). Read By Adam Grupper (The Lincoln Lawyer) and Peter Giles (The Brass Verdict and The Reversal)
