The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly, 423 pages, read by Leslie, on 08/05/2012

The Lincoln Lawyer (Mickey Haller, #1)

Representing the system’s most unsavory characters in his work as a criminal defense lawyer, jaded attorney Mickey Haller takes on his first high-paying and possibly innocent client in years, but finds the case complicated by sinister events that suggest the workings of a particularly evil perpetrator.

Much more intense than the Ali Reynolds series by Jance, I liked this book, haven’t seen the movie yet, not sure I will.  I enjoyed seeing how a lawyer can flip his viewpoint on guilty and innocent and how he makes it work, although not quite how he wanted.  A very good book, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys mysteries.
