Publisher's Summary

The most important case of his life.

Only this time the defendant is himself.

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.

Heading home after winning his latest case, Defence 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....

Crime doesn't come better than Connelly.

The Law of Innocence

You have done it agin Michael Connelly, you keep you writing full of suspense and the narrator was excellent. His deep moody voice added to the main character and made listening all the more enjoyable.

Thanks you all that work on this.

Not bad for a storyline but not enough

The story was good but the ending was weak. I have read many of Michael connelly books but this is average.

Pacy courtroom drama

Mickey Haller is a likeable protagonist in this fast moving courtroom drama. I wasn’t that keen on the narrator at first but he grew on me. The novel kept my interest right through with several twists and a background love interest. Entertaining and worth listening.
