LoveReading Expert Review of The Lincoln Lawyer

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.


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.
