    I loved it I could read Mickey Haller books all day We naturally want to despise the defense lawyer as some sort of devil s assistant, but you can t help but like Mickey Haller Harry Boche works well as a balancing character A tough no nonsense cop Loved it

    The first book is mediocre but the second and third are top notch and show Connelly in his finest form Page turners both, they also feature Bosch as a bit player in 2 and co lead in 3 Recommended.

    I suppose that in to write great fiction an author can do one of two things write something new and original, or write something that s been done before but do it better There s really nothing ultra original about the Lincoln Lawyer novels A jaded defence attorney that doesn t really care about guilt or innocence, just the outcome of the trial A series of cases that make him reevaluate that stance But Michael Connelly has done it better than it has been done previously A lot better The Lincoln Lawyer, the first book in this three book tome, is the best one It s been turned into a movie and the movie, in my opinion is almost as good at the book, but not quite The Lincoln Lawyer follow Mickey Haller, a Los Angeles defence attorney with a solid reputation for defending unsavoury characters It s not about proving innocence, he tells us, it s about casting doubt on the prosecution s case The novel follows a case of a rich, Beverly Hills playboy who is accused of a sexual assault and comes to Haller to represent him Haller takes on the case, seeing it as a case he can stretch out and bill some serious hours a franchise case but soon, moral, ethical issues come to the fore, but not before everything in Haller s life is threatened It s a mystery, it s a thriller and it is filled with intrigue.But what makes this book great is Haller himself He s got a great voice and the whole book is told in the first person perspective It s like having an inside look in the mind of a defence attorney and I absolutely loved it Michael Connelly is not a lawyer, but he could have fooled me I found the first book captivating and I could not put this one down.The second book in the series, The Brass Verdict, again follows Haller after he s taken some time off after the case in the Lincoln Lawyer He s a bit of a changed man following what happened in the Lincoln Lawyer, but only a bit Now he gets to defend a case of a Hollywood Mogul charged with the murder of his wife and lover This one is almost as exciting as the first novel but there is one problem with it.Connelly introduces his famous character, Harry Bosch, in The Brass Verdict I m not sure why Perhaps longtime readers of Connelly will like this addition I found it completely detracted from the story and slowed it down As mentioned, chapters from Mickey Haller s perspective were told in first person, while chapters with Bosch were third person This switching back and forth, to me didn t add anything and actually slowed the pace of the book down And, I apologize to Harry Bosch fans, but I didn t find him to be an interesting character But he wasn t that dominant in this novel, so I still enjoyed it.The Reversal, the third novel in the collection follows Haller as he reverses to the other side of the courtroom He is hired on by the State to re prosecute a man who was convicted of abduction and murder of a young girl and spent twenty years in jail, but new DNA evidence cleared him from those charges Now, Haller has to use all of his savvy to send the man back to jail A great story Except that in this novel, the subplot of Harry Bosch being hired as Haller s investigator on the case becomes as big as the main plot, but not half as interesting I found myself completely uninterested whenever the point of view switched to Bosch and it did it a lot My least favourite of the three.If I was rating each of them individually, The Lincoln Lawyer is easily 5 stars, Brass Verdict 4 stars and the Reversal 3 stars Maybe Harry Bosch fans will disagree with these, and keep in mind that these were the first Michael Connelly books I ve read.

    These books are fantastic I saw the first book The Lincoln Lawyer on bookshelves while traveling, however did not fully get interested in reading them until I saw the movie After I started reading, I was hooked Each one of these books seem to draw you in and as the plot line develops Michael Connelly always throws a lot of twists in a long the way as well which make them even interesting I am starting the next book, The Fifth Witness and it already has me hooked.Another thing I really like about the books are the Michael Connelly really does his research The places he lists in Mickey Haller s travels, are pretty much real It s a nice touch to know exactly where Mick is traveling in the book.Overall just outstanding books Also, if you have a Kindle, the 3 books combined are a great deal in the Kindle store

    If you like Grisham, you will love this book.This is the first Michael Connelly book that I have read but it will not be the last If you like John Grisham books, you will love this Great legal thriller that kept me riveted I have never had much faith in the legal system because of how they treat people Guilty until proven innocent This shows in the side story I enjoyed the drama and the emotions that are beautifully portrayed The ending had me on pins and needles and I kept looking at the number of pages left I kept thinking about how much had to happen in the time left and would it be tied up or would this be one of those books that left me hanging for a sequel Happily it wasn t.

    Certainly one of the better books I ve read A great page turner I know that term is over used, but with this book it s true There is never a dull moment from the first page to the last There are not so many twists and turns as just pure interest.What I enjoyed most was the flawed main character I enjoyed his struggles, doubts and passions While I had the ending figured out it didn t really make much difference in the enjoyability It was just a great trip getting there.

    Really enjoyed this book it introduces the character of Michael Mickey Haller and defense attorney He has a one man shop that he runs out of his car He has a fleet of Lincolns and has a driver so he does most of his work in the back seat He likes it that way, but he is not above cutting some corners and gets than he was bargaining for in his latest case It really gives insight into how a defense attorney works and how the court system works Great read.
