The Lincoln Lawyer. Michael Connelly
1 journaler for this copy...
(20/08) Very good, I thoroughly enjoyed this as a ripping read and fine example of the genre. I've not read anything similar since Grisham and have been away from the UK crime scene for a whole - as it were! This has all the ingredients; a street wise lead (Michael 'Micky' Haller, defense lawyer for LAs worst criminals and underclass), complicated family life (2 ex-wives), a fiendish plot, a sadistic rapist/killer and courtroom intrigue. I won't try and summarise the plot, but suffice to say it starts with a seemingly straightforward case for Haller although his hopes that a seemingly innocent client will provide a profitable 'franchise' doesn't work out as he expects. However, following a number of clever twists and developments, Haller ends up questioning the meaning of innocence & guilt and his own ethical code.
I've passed this on to my DD who's larning to be a solicitor or QC, probably not a US-style de-fense lawyer (sic)...'The Subaru Solicitor' maybe?
...well, yes and no! In fact DD has been inspired to get more of Connelly's books, so quite a recommendation. Now available to release or share
