The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly
Mickey Haller is The Lincoln Lawyer, a Los Angeles defense attorney who does most of his work out of the back of his chauffeured Lincoln Town Car. Mickey approaches his job knowing that the law has nothing to do with truth and justice or guilt and innocence. Instead it's a system to be worked to find a way to get his clients off and make a nice payday in the process. When he's hired to defend a spoiled playboy against a charge of attempted murder of an escort, Mickey takes it knowing the rich kid will pay handsomely. He ultimately believes, though, that his client is guilty and everything becomes more complicated when Mickey becomes a murder suspect and his family is threatened. Suddenly, the truth matters very much to Mickey. Michael Connelly takes a break from his Harry Bosch series to create a new character and legal thriller series. Not to worry, though, Mickey is Harry's half-brother. The Lincoln Lawyer has received positive reviews with the USA Today saying, "The Lincoln Lawyer is Connelly's first legal thriller and is one of the best novels he has written, if not the best."
