Winner of the Best Novel at the Macavity Awards 2006 and the Shamus Awards 2006.

He’s a well-known, bestselling American author of fast-paced crime but this one is a little out of the norm. It’s 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 CD format.

If you like Michael Connelly you might also like to read books by John Grisham, Dennis Lehane and Jeffery Deaver.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

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.

Reviews

'a terrific courtroom drama ... the twists, shocks and surprises mount ... he seems totally at ease in the murky world of criminal courts.' Marcel Berlins - THE TIMES

'Great entertainment from a true master.' THE MIRROR

'A legal thriller may be a new departure for Michael Connelly, but it has all the hallmarks that have rightly made his Harry Bosch books so popular: credible characters, skilful scene-setting, a gripping plot and utter authenticity.' Mark Sanderson - EVENING STANDARD

'The Lincoln Lawyer is a pitch-perfect LA noir legal thriller that proves what I've been thinking for a long time now, that Michael Connelly is one of the very best writers working today in any genre. A modern Raymond Chandler for what he calls 'the world without truth.'
Carlos Ruiz Zafon - SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
