Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Reviewed on Richard and Judy on 22 March 2006. Heâs a well-known, bestselling American author of fast-paced crime but this one is a little out of the norm. Itâs a fascinating insight into the workings of the American legal system, there are many such but this is very good. The devious, almost illegal, way the system can be manipulated is highly informative and enthralling. This title is also available as an Audiobook, in either CD or cassette format.

Comparison: John Grisham, Robert Crais, David Baldacci.

If you like Michael Connelly you might also like to read books by Lisa Gardner, Harlan Coben and John Grisham.

Synopsis

The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly

They're called Lincoln Lawyers: the bottom of the legal food chain, the criminal defence attorneys who operate out of the back of a Lincoln Town Car, taking whatever cases the system throws in their path.

Mickey Haller has been in the business a long time, and he knows just how to work it. 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 when his case starts to fall apart and neither the suspect nor the victim are quite who they seem, Haller quickly discovers that when you swim with the sharks, it's easy to wind up as prey.
