Mickey Haller seems like a good man. Like anyone, he has his flaws and does what he can to make a living as a defense attorney. He confides that his father was also an attorney and had a special place in his heart to helping the less fortunate. Many of these clients were women who resorted to prostitution as a desperate choice to survive. Mickey tries to carry on his father's tradition.      Mickey does much of his work from the back seat of his Lincoln. His driver, Earl, …

Criminal defense attorney, Mickey Haller, is thrilled to find himself in the position of defending Louis Ross Roulet against a charge of attempted rape and aggravated sexual assault with grievous bodily injury for his alleged attack of Reggie Campeau, a hooker with a past. Roulet is what experienced attorneys call a "franchise" client - he's willing to be billed full schedule A top dollar legal fare, he's got the money to pay and he wants to go the distance in his own defense. …

Criminal defense attorney, Mickey Haller, finds himself in that most dangerous of positions for any lawyer, defending an innocent client against a charge of attempted rape and aggravated sexual assault with grievous bodily injury. A wonderful new character in the Michael Connelly LA police and legal universe.

I really enjoyed this legal thriller that I found more enjoyable and a lot more believable than some of the top Grisham novels! Michael (Mickey) Haller is a lawyer who is used to wraggling with the legal system to catch breaks for obviously guilty people. He persues this line of work because his biggest fear is that one day he will be faced with having to defend a truly "innocent" person. The reason for the fear is that if he ever lost the case then he will have to live with the fact that he let …

Defense attorney Mickey Haller isn't sure anymore what he wants, except for more money. After 15 years in practice, he's lost sight of many of the ideals that attracted him to the law in the first place. Now he's reached that point in life where he begins to take a long, hard look at himself, and finds a few very large flaws. But one think Mickey still believes is that every defendant deserves his day in court with competent representation.     Hired by the wealthy, spoiled son …

Criminal defense lawyer Mickey Haller works out of the back seat of his Lincoln Town Car, driven by a client in exchange for his fee. One ex-wife books Haller's clients for him while his other ex-wife is a prosecuting attorney. When a bondsman recommends Haller to Louis Ross Roulet, a man accused of assaulting a prostitute, Haller is eager for the job. Roulet is what Haller thinks of as a franchise: a rich man whose defense will result in high fees. But Haller's investigation into the charges against …

I'm always in the mood for a good legal thriller, and I had the pleasure of reading Michael Connelly's latest, The Lincoln Lawyer. An interesting story of right, wrong, and ethics...    Mickey Haller is a defense attorney that is very good at what he does... giving his clients the legal defense they are granted by law. And while his clients are not really the cream of society, he takes pride in his services. He stumbles into a "franchise" case, one in which the money is large …

Michael Connelley is well known as a master of the police procedural. In "The Lincoln Lawyer," he sets aside his very successful Harry Bosch character and instead focuses on Mickey Haller, a criminal defense attorney. Haller defends those most of us would consider lowlifes: drug dealers, pimps, prostitutes, burglars, garden-variety murderers. No TV cameras or celebrity journalists after his story: just the day to day workings of affording the accused a defense against the power of the state.     …

This book by talented author, Michael Connelly, kept me pinned to my seat all Saturday night. I intended to go to a movie with friends, but couldn't put this book down long enough to dress.    I really like GOOD books about "lawyering," especially when they're woven into other aspects of the community so well. This is a psychological thriller that you won't want to miss.    An outstanding, original concept by a master writer.    Buy it! You'll be glad you did!
review by . 十月 17, 2005
Departing from his bestselling, Edgar award-winning Harry Bosch series, Connelly jumps into the crowded and mostly lackluster field of legal thrillers with a tightly plotted page-turner.    Reasonably successful, but always scrambling to meet his child-support and the hefty mortgage on his house, L.A. defense attorney Mickey Haller operates out of the back of his Lincoln Town Car, one of a fleet given in payment by a grateful client. Mickey defends mostly drug dealers and other …
