4.0 out of 5 stars Unfamiliar and familiar too 27 Feb 2006
Nothing is clear cut about this book. The lawyer is new territory for Connelly with a new “hero” but it is also very familiar country, a “hero” who is seriously flawed in a failed relationship that is still on the go. Harry Bosch fans will find this all very familiar and yet it’s fresh the more interesting for that.
It is a gripping read and plot twists offer some genuine surprises that prove ultimately credible. I particularly liked the references to LA Gangsta rap that are both authentic and incongruous.
It all goes to show that really good fiction does not have to be boring and that “genre” fiction can be multi-layered and really interesting.
If you have not tried Connelly before this is as good a place as any to start. When you move on to Harry Bosch…as you will want to it will get you nicely teed up. If you are already a Connelly fan what are you waiting for you won’t be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars High-class page turner 19 Mar 2006
By G. L. Haggett VINE VOICE
A fast-moving crime novel where nothing is quite as it first appears, with writing far superior to that to be found in much of the genre.
While there is a little too much heavy-handed, self-conscious explication of legal technicalities and the entire concept of the "Lincoln lawyer" at the start of the book, Connelly manages to evoke a great sense of atmosphere both inside and outside the courtroom as Haller grapples with his conflicting obligations towards his client and society at large.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book read in the last 12 Months 10 Mar 2006
By A Customer
I am an avid reader, reading up to four books a week, I have always been a fan of Michael Connelly and enjoy his Bosch books, I was initially disappointed to see that this latest was not one of Harry's, however I was not disappointed. It is excellent, right from the start, a gripping, oh my god kind of book, gives J Grisham something to think about. Would make a really good film!!! Read this book immediately!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Twists and turns...and trips 26 July 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'd never even heard of Michael Connelly before reading the much-applauded The Lincoln Lawyer. I'd been drawn to it by a half-price offer, not knowing the author but finding the blurb to be enticing enough to fork out the 5 for the book. What a buy.

The reviews I've read since enjoying the book have all given the book dues on the basis of the twists and turns in its plot. For me, this was not the greatest feature of the book. Yes, it twists and turns more than a Salsa dancer but what I picked out as being the best part was the character you got to know by reading the book. Mickey Haller is such a genuine character, built upon even more so by the fact that the book is written in first person, and you know him inside-out by the end of the book. Only in hindsight, having since read The Black Echo by the same author, am I able to confirm that Haller is a much better developed character than Bosch in my opinion, with more to him than the 'hard-done-by, take-no-crap' Bosch. Because of this, the book is a good read for someone who doesn't want to be dragged under by the depth of the forensics and criminology aspect, as was the case in The Black Echo, but wants to read about how a man grows through the case he is pursuing. Interestingly, it was this aside which kept me holding onto the book.

The case does have its turns, unquestionably, but the last 200 pages are simply an ambling pretext to an easily anticipatable ending. I won't spoil it but, if you get to page 400 and think you've figured it out then, well, you probably have. However, the plot was hard to make too unpredictable given its nature and thats where Connelly truly shines as a fine writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have Case Will Travel 14 Oct 2005
"The scariest client a lawyer will ever have is an innocent client. Because if you [screw] up and he goes to prison, it'll scar you for life." Mickey Haller's father, a renowned attorney gave him this one piece of advice. He always remembered it and, of course, this is the base of his trouble.
Michael Connelly, the author of Harry Bosch novels has created a new character that is likeable, has many personal problems, likes to stick it to the authorities when needed, and understands that a defense attorney is the man who puts up with shit from his clients, from the oppositon and anyone else who feels the need. We know not far into this book that Mickey Haller will do what it takes to win the case. He insists that his clients be honest with him, and he will go to the end of the earth for them. Most of his clients are drug dealers, homeboys or prostitutes. He defends them, insists that they play straight and will help them out however he can. He is upfront that he needs to be paid, and most of these people find the money somewhere. He doesn't make enough money to really pay his bills, child support and the two mortgages on his home. But he survives. He has an interesting office, his Lincoln Town car. As he states "Have Case Will Travel," and he moves from one southern California city to another in his car. One of his clients who had no way to pay his bills is working it off by acting as his driver. The client wears his I-Pod and listens to his homeboys, like Tupac, when Mickey has a case to discuss over the phone or needs to listen to tapes. This arrangement works out well for both of them.
Mickey's current client is a very rich real estate agent, Louis Roulet, who is accused of attempted murder to a woman he picked up for sexual attention.
