LoveReading View on The Lincoln Lawyer

Highly enjoyable and fascinating insight into the workings of the American legal system where devious dealings border on the illegal.  It’s a great read, reminiscent of early John Grisham.  Highly recommended. This title is also available as an Audiobook, in either CD or cassette format.

Comparison: John Grisham, Lisa Scottoline, G M Ford.

The Lincoln Lawyer Synopsis

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 car, travelling between the courthouses of Los Angeles county to take 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, how to grease the right wheels and palms, to keep the engine of justice working in his favour. 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 he is sure this is going to be a slam-dunk. He might even be in the rare position of defending a client who is actually innocent.

But as Haller knows, criminal cases can turn on a dime; 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.
