Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. He expands his business into foreclosure defense, only to see one of his clients accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home.

Mickey puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, even though the evidence and his own suspicions tell him his client is guilty. Soon after he learns that the victim had black market dealings of his own, Haller is assaulted, too--and he's certain he's on the right trail.

Despite the danger and uncertainty, Haller mounts the best defense of his career in a trial where the last surprise comes after the verdict is in. Connelly proves again why he "may very well be the best novelist working in the United States today" (San Francisco Chronicle).

A good insight on the legal system if you like courtroom drama.

*** stars. You can always count on Michael Connelly for a good read! My favorite of his protagonists is Harry Bosch, but I am falling for Mickey Haller, the "Lincoln Lawyer" who operates out of his car. When times are tough, Mickey turns to a lucrative and abundant source of cases: foreclosure. He acquires a client named Lisa Trammel who is a "poster child" for the homeowner fighting big banks. When she is accused of murdering one of the "bankers" involved in her case, everything becomes much more complicated than it seemed. Recommend.

The original Lincoln Lawyer was a page turner. This got very bogged down in the legal maneuvering and was not quite as involving as I expected.

Typical Michael Connelly, plenty of twists and turns plus a great ending.

Some great interesting well thought plots and dialog, even for a court room trial. Too much panning for the ex knocks this down to 8 of 10 stars.
