Summary
Lincoln Lawyer Mickey Haller is back on the job in this heart-stopping thriller from a renowned #1 New York Times bestselling author.



"One of the finest legal thrillers of the last decade" --Associated Press



On the night he celebrates a big win, defense attorney Mickey Haller is pulled over by police, who find the body of a former client in the trunk of his Lincoln. Haller is immediately charged with murder but can't post the exorbitant $5 million bail slapped on him by a vindictive judge.



Mickey elects to represent himself and is forced to mount his defense from his jail cell in the Twin Towers Correctional Center in downtown Los Angeles. All the while he needs to look over his shoulder--as an officer of the court he is an instant target, and he makes few friends when he reveals a corruption plot within the jail.



But the bigger plot is the one against him. Haller knows he's been framed, whether by a new enemy or an old one. As his trusted team, including his half-brother, Harry Bosch, investigates, Haller must use all his skills in the courtroom to counter the damning evidence against him.



Even if he can obtain a not-guilty verdict, Mickey understands that it won't be enough. In order to be truly exonerated, he must find out who really committed the murder and why. That is the law of innocence.



In his highest stakes case yet, the Lincoln Lawyer fights for his life and proves again why he is "a worthy colleague of Atticus Finch . . . in the front of the pack in the legal thriller game" ( Los Angeles Times ).

Booklist Review: "Connelly's first Mickey Haller novel since The Gods of Guilt (2013) finds the brash defense attorney arrested for murder and forced to mount a defense from inside his jail cell. Haller landed in this world-class pickle after he was stopped by a possibly crooked cop, and a body was found in the trunk of his car. A frame, obviously, but who's behind it and why? Haller assembles his team, including his half-brother Harry Bosch, and attempts to formulate a counterattack. The rub, however, is that a not-guilty verdict won't be enough to restore Haller's reputation in the legal world. "To prove true innocence," Haller explains, "the guilty man must be found and exposed to world." In his Haller novels, Connelly has always displayed great ability to write courtroom scenes, combining thrust-and-parry exchanges between defense and prosecution with a look at the personal motives driving all the players (including the judge). He does all that here, too, but the extended focus on the pretrial discovery process, with Bosch and investigator Cisco Wojciechowski doing the legwork while Haller sits in jail, gives the novel a double-barreled appeal. This is a fine legal thriller and a revealing character study, as we watch Haller lose a little bluster at the prospect of life behind bars; there's also the matter of a strange virus in Wuhan, China, just starting to make headlines as Haller's case goes to trial. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: If you're a handicapper who pays attention to past-performance charts, a new Connelly novel means bet the farm."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "L.A. defense attorney Mickey Haller takes on the hardest case of his career in bestseller Connelly's superlative seventh Lincoln Lawyer novel (following 2015's The Crossing). After the body of a career con artist is found in the trunk of Haller's Lincoln Towncar, he faces a first-degree murder rap. Opting to defend himself, Haller enlists his own legal defense team to assist. Half-brother Harry Bosch steps in to help investigate, and the unusual case leads to the port of Los Angeles and a biofuel company run by a recidivist criminal with mob ties whom Haller put away years earlier. Bosch suspects that the company is running a complex scam and double dipping on government subsidies payouts. Meanwhile, 2020 is off to a strange start with reports of a deadly virus in China that threatens to spread worldwide. The tension builds as Haller prepares for trial, and it becomes clear that he was framed by a much larger entity than he originally thought. This is a supremely intelligent, well-paced courtroom thriller by a modern master. Agent: Philip Spitzer, Philip G. Spitzer Literary. (Nov.)"
