The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly

The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly Book Summary



The bestselling legal thriller has charismatic defense attorney Mickey Haller taking on a slam-dunk court case involving a Beverly Hills playboy -- but as it spirals into a nightmare, he finds himself in a fight for his life.   Mickey Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense attorney who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, traveling between the far-flung courthouses of Los Angeles to defend clients of every kind. Bikers, con artists, drunk drivers, drug dealers -- they're all on Mickey Haller's client list. For him, the law is rarely about guilt or innocence, it's about negotiation and manipulation. Sometimes it's even about justice.   A Beverly Hills playboy arrested for attacking a woman he picked up in a bar chooses Haller to defend him, and Mickey has his first high-paying client in years. It is a defense attorney's dream, what they call a franchise case. And as the evidence stacks up, Haller comes to believe this may be the easiest case of his career. Then someone close to him is murdered and Haller discovers that his search for innocence has brought him face-to-face with evil as pure as a flame. To escape without being burned, he must deploy every tactic, feint, and instinct in his arsenal -- this time to save his own life.

Great Book!. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It kept me reading page after page to find out what was coming next. Thought I had predicted the end but I was wrong.


Fantastic read. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I then saw the movie and it is actually a fairly good representation of the book.


Great Read. Haven't been able to find a book that I couldn't put down in a long time. Well I found it in The Lincoln Lawyer and now I am left wanting more. Truly great from cover to cover.

Good Read. A good read


Amazing. I'm 14 and I started reading this book a little tricky and confusing but that's probably my age but anywase this book so far is amazing I stayed up tell 4:30 reading this book and I absolutely love it I like the suspense and how the question pops in ur head what's going to happen next


Fantastic!. Loved it! Couldn't put it down!


Enjoyable. It was an enjoyable read, nothing special. I read the paper version (on sale at the grocery for $2) so i cant comment on any digital formatting, but it was a fun read, and a good story.


Absolutely great!. Thoroughly engaging legal/crime thriller! Wonderful character development! Hard-to-guess twists and turns!

Frances Grace

The Lincoln Lawyer. Buckle your seatbelt and prepare for a literary ride of sharp turns and unexpected turbulence! A real page turner! A modern version of the classic "who dun-nit".


The Lincoln lawyer. Great read...with a twist or two that does actually surprise when you think you know direction or it's becoming cliche are pulled back in. Fast read too. I would recommend.

JRZ Girl

The Lincoln Lawyer. I loved this book and could not put it down. Read the whole thing in just 2 days. It is fun to think about the movie stars that will be playing these roles as you read. I also liked the surprises along the way. The tough part now is finding another page-turner to read next.



Zafon fan

One of Connelly's best. As good as the Harry Bosch books are, Connelly is often at his best when stepping away from the character. This book is no exception. He really hit this one out of the park. It's no wonder this book went on to inspire a new series.


The Lincoln lawyer. Awesome book couldn't put it down


Great Book, Loved the Lawyer. Great book. Enjoyed it from the moment I opened the book. After I read the book, I had to see the movie. Enjoyed both of them. I liked the look, like the author and his style of writing.


Great read. I am not much of a big reader. I found this story to be great. Very informational in the way he talks about defense cases and all around great info. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys legal thrillers. Again, 5 stars!!!


Lincoln lawyer. This is a great book one never knows what's coming up next. The end is excellent and very unexpected. Can't wait for the movie version I would buy and read this book again.


Fantastic Legal Thriller. Michael Connelly does it again! This time with a new character different from Bosch but still very enjoyable in a lived in world. There are twists and turns and just when you think you’ve figured it out here comes another twist!


Wow. This book is AMAZING I could not put it down.. Can't wait to read the rest of Michael Hallers Adventures


Excellent. Couldn't put it down. Very good book.


Wonderful. A fantastic story.


Loved it!. Listened to this book first, can't wait to now read it!


Lincoln lawyer. Always need to read book before seeing movie. This book sat on my shelve for a couple of years. The movie pushed me to read. Very good. Held interest through out. Will try another of his books soon.


Loved it. I could not put it down.


Very entertaining!. Great cast of characters. This author makes a defense attorney likable. You end up cheering for Mickey.


Great Book!. Loved it, read it in 3 days!


It's ok. This is a good escape book - you don't have to think too much while reading it. Buy it and enjoy.


Book won't open. I paid $9.99 and downloaded this book but it wont open on my iPad. I am very disappointed that I spent my money for nothing. What can I do to get a working copy of this book?


Book not complete.. Wish Apple would print the whole book, like I payed for the entire book, stopped at middle of chapter 45. What’s up Apple?


Great Read!. The dialogue and pace that Connelly gives Mickey and the plot are incredible. You won't be able to stop reading once you start! But better yet is the humanity and soul he gives to a questionable character like Mickey Haller. The humanity makes you think after you put it down and want for more.

Sleepless in Chicago 2012

Best book I have read this year!. If In had to pick a book to read for the rest of my life it would be this one. The characters are flawed, realistic and they have a great sense of humor. Mickey is a lawyer you want to win every case that comes this way. Cannot wait for next book!


Fun story. Great and fun story to read! Not the most well written, but still enjoyable!

John Kilpatrick

Lincoln Lawyer. Wonderful read !! Connelly develops the solid storyline with realistic action. The book was a real page turner.


Enthralling. It took me a little bit to get into the book, but after I did, I was mesmerized. Perhaps it's because I practice an entirely different kind of law or perhaps because it was simply an exceptionally well written and engaging book. Totally unpredictable and it really made me think about attorneys and clients and the repercussions therefrom. Fantastic read!


Loved it!!. This is the first book I have read from Michael Connelly. I bought it because the movie looked great and i love reading the book before seeing the movie. I am hooked!! I will be starting a new collection!! I could not put this book down. Definitely a must read.


Good. Didnt read just love movie

Ali Murat Pala

Page-turner!. Amazing! The story, the characters... The movie is great too.


the Lincoln Lawyer. I want more!!!!!! Can't wait to see the movie...


The Lincoln Lawyer. As someone who's new to Connelly's writing, I found the book surprisingly very good read! The author weaves a great plot and made all his characters believable.


The Lincoln Lawyer. What a thriller! Couldn't put this book down!


Great book!. Great read!


Awesome book. This is gonna be a great movie!

DJ CocoFlip

Really good. It didn't grab me when I first started reading it. Boy, am I happy that I continued to read it. I am now a big fan of Mickey and I'm just about to purchase the 2nd book in a hopefully long series (The Fifth Witness).


Great!. Amazing book cannot wait to see the film.
