Author(s): Michael Connelly
Mickey Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defence attorney who operates out of the back seat of his Lincoln Town Car, travelling 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 his 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 defence 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.
A former police reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Michael Connelly is the author of eleven acclaimed Harry Bosch thrillers and several stand-alone bestsellers, including most recently the highly acclaimed legal thriller, The Lincoln Lawyer.
