I read The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly after watching the movie. I haven't dipped into the mystery/crime thriller genre in a long while and thought it was about time! Both the book and movie impressed me both in characterization and plot organization. So, Mickey Haller isn't your typical male hero that comes in to solve the crime or save the day. He is a defense attorney - he fights for the bad (*ahem* allegedly) guys. When the case of a wealthy realtor falls in his lap, he thinks things are finally going his way. He gets a case guaranteed to make him a big pile of money and he thinks - for once - his guy might even be innocent. Of course, as I've come to learn, in the worlds that Michael Connelly writes in things are never what they seem - you have to go through a constantly twisting and winding journey to see where Mickey's case will eventually take him. So, even though Mickey doesn't come off as the type of guy you'd typically root for - I dare you not to fall under his spell just the same (and this isn't just a Matthew McConaughey movie flashback either). He does have his own special set of ethical guidelines - and even when he is skating legal and moral corners you can't help but be impressed by him. This man is wily. He is also a sucker for his daughter and ex-wife (sorry - make that ex-wives). He wants to be a family man but that role didn't work out for him since his woman of choice is a prosecutor that ultimately couldn't handle him fighting on the "wrong" side. As for the plot - Michael Connelly certainly delivers on that front, y'all. Not only do his books keep you in a constant state of anticipation, but the mysteries are engaging. There are enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, it would be pretty much impossible to foresee all of them. Impressive stuff. So anyway, I read through the entire four book Mickey Haller series in a row - couldn't get enough! Can't wait to see where it goes next. I highly recommend both the movie and the book. I actually watched the movie first - which might have even made me appreciate the book's intricacies (and different ending) more. Definitely worth checking out, even if it isn't your normal genre!

For defense attorney M...
For defense attorney Mickey Haller, the clock is always running. With two ex-wives, four Lincoln Town Cars that he uses as offices, and dozens of guilty clients, he can't afford to miss a trick. When he gets picked by a Beverly Hills rich boy arrested for assault, Mickey sees a franchise case: a nice, long, expensive trial with maximum billable hours--until it hurtles him into the last place he wants to be. Suddenly hustling, cynical Mickey Haller is confronted with pure evil and someone who may be truly innocent. Now, for a lawyer who has always gone for the easy score, getting justice means taking the deadliest risk of all. But the new client turns out to be very guilty and Mickey has a clever defense prepared to get him off 1 hook and onto anothe hook that will put him behind bars and get a former client out of jail. And of course the winner is lawyer Mickey! Got book from Susan and enjoyed finished reading late one Sat. morn.

As good as I remember ...

As good as I remember it As an early Michael Connelly fan I have followed his Harry Bosch detective series from the very beginning and also first read The Lincoln Lawyer / Mickey Haller #1 when it first came out in 2005. I also reread it at the time of the Matthew McConaughey film version. When it came up as an Audible Daily Deal back in 2017, I grabbed it up on a kneejerk reaction as it is always good to have a few reliable audiobooks in reserve for long trips. This was just as good as I remembered it and although many of the twist were known to me it was still a pleasure to follow along with Connelly's plot construction and to enjoy the outcome. The narration by Adam Grupper was excellent in his only outing in a Connelly reading. Actor Titus Welliver seems to have taken over the Bosch/Haller audiobook narrations since assuming the role of Bosch in the Amazon TV series as of 2014.

This was a very entert...

This was a very entertaining novel and was in my opinion the best book I have read by Connelly. I really enjoyed all of the characters and the story line was fast paced and fun all the way through .Looking forward to reading more in the Mickey Haller series of books.5 Stars for a really good book.

Stephen and I listened...

Stephen and I listened to this on our trip to Maryland. Great lawyer story but tons of characters. I can't wait to see the movie based on the book to put everything together. Matthew McConaughey is playing the lawyer, Mick. Mick conducts business out of his Lincoln Continental thus the title.
