Heading home after winning his latest case, defense attorney Mickey Haller - The Lincoln Lawyer - is pulled over by the police. They open the trunk of his car to find the body of a former client.
Haller knows the law inside out. He will be charged with murder. He will have to build his case from behind bars. And the trial will be the trial of his life.
Because Mickey Haller will defend himself in court.
With watertight evidence stacked against him, Haller will need every trick in the book to prove he was framed.
But a not-guilty verdict isn't enough. In order to truly walk free, Haller knows he must find the real killer - that is the law of innocence...

"The law of innocence is unwritten. It will not be found in a leather-bound code book. It will never be argued in a courtroom. In nature, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. In the law of innocence, for every man not guilty of a crime there is a man out there who is. And to prove true innocence the guilty man must be found and exposed to the world."

As good as Grisham
I thoroughly enjoyed this court room case and all the characters were colourful but believable. Makes you realise that there is a vast difference between justice and the law. The difference between innocence and not guilty.
Absolutely loved this book, Haller and Connelly at their best.
From start to finish this book never fails to deliver, a brilliant story line spun together by the trials and tribulations of the hero aka the Lincoln Lawyer.
I don’t know how Michael Connelly manages to consistently year after year (two this year) publish books of such quality. In my eyes he is unrivalled and king of legal and crime investigation novels.
Only sad point is there is now another twelve months until the next book. However I’m feeling inspired so I might spend the winter rereading all the Lincoln Lawyers books again.
