Publisher's Summary

Mickey Haller is a Lincoln lawyer--a criminal defence attorney who operates out of the back of his car, a Lincoln, taking whatever cases the system throws in his path. He's been in the business a long time, and he knows just how to work it.

When a Beverly Hills rich boy is arrested for brutally beating a woman, Haller has his first high-paying client in years. The evidence mounts on the defence's side, and Haller might even be in the rare position of defending a client who is actually innocent. But then the case starts to fall apart, neither the suspect nor the victim are quite who they seem--and Haller quickly discovers that when you swim with the sharks, it's easy to wind up as prey.

Audio quality is crap

The book itself is great, typical Connelly, nail biting all the way through but someone really f*cked up the audio on this, compression artefacts on the voice and clipping on the louder parts. Not the usual standard!

Great story. Shame about the static and missing bits

Thoroughly enjoyed the story but there were places where some words or sentences were missing. This was disappointing as I missed bits of the story.
This is my 4th audio book and I haven't had that problem with any of the other books. Now, to watch the movie!

The Lincoln Lawyer

Great naration by Adam Grubber, made this book one of the best I have listened to. I will now be looking for other books narated by him. My eyes are not so good now, so I listen more than I read. I have listened to samples of books I have read, & enjoyed, but it is usually the narator that makes or breaks the deal for me. I'm this case it was a winner for me.
But I must finish by saying it was a very good story by Michael Connolly, and I will look out for more of his books.

Great story marred by sloppy production.

Time warner's insistence on the random insertion of electronic musical interludes which tended to drown the narration nearly spoilt an exciting,well crafted story. Beautifully read, it introduced a multi layered character who is a great addition to the Connelly stable

Brilliant

An enjoyable listen, hard to put down once started and a great performance by Adam Grupper. There are a couple of minor glitches in the recording but nothing too bad.

A great read with suspense to the end

A great story well written and well read. Full marks to Michael Connelly for starting with a bang and holding to the end. The twists and turns were great. Whilst we all know how it is always going to end but getting there is the fun.

Excellent Story

Excellent, gripping story, and superb narration. However, a slight disappointment and annoyance was caused by the audio dropouts and sqeltching noises throughout the story.

Great

Great book
Kept me intrigued and wanting to find out what would happen.
The character portrayal was very good.
The performance was great.
I'd have liked more of a twist.
