THE LINCOLN LAWYER


For defense attorney Mickey Haller, the clock is always running.  With two ex-wives, four Lincoln Town Cars that he uses as offices, and dozens of guilty clients, he can't afford to miss a trick.  When he gets picked by a Beverly Hills rich boy arrested for assault, Mickey sees a franchise case: a nice, long, expensive trial with maximum billable hours - until it hurtles him into the last place he wants to be.  Suddenly hustling, cynical Mickey Haller is confronted with pure evil and someone who may be truly innocent.  Now, for a lawyer who has always gone for the easy score, getting justice means taking the deadliest risk of all.

"Beware picking up THE LINCOLN LAWYER.  You won't want to put it down until you've navigated its rapids to the end."

THE BRASS VERDICT


After two years of wrong turns, defense attorney Mickey Haller is back in action.  His former colleague Jerry Vincent has been slain and Haller inherits his biggest case yet: defending a Hollywood producer accused of multiple murders.  With a key part of the defense strategy missing, Haller scrambles to prepare for trial - and gets more pressure when he learns that Vincent's killer may be coming for him next.  Enter Harry Bosch, who will do whatever it takes to crack the Vincent case, including using Haller as bait.  But as danger quickly mounts, these two loners will soon realize that their only chance is to work as a team.

THE
REVERSAL


Longtime defense attorney Mickey Haller never thought he would cross the aisle and work for the prosecution - until imprisoned child killer Jason Jessup is granted a retrial based on new DNA evidence.  Convinced Jessup is guilty, Haller takes the case on the condition that he gets to choose his investigator, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch.

But there's a serious political taint on the case, and Haller must face down a celebrity defense attorney who has already started trying it in the media.  While Bosch searches the cold trail for the eye-witness who was the key to Jessup's original conviction, the convict is released on bail.  Now Haller and Bosch fear the worst: This killer may have just gotten started - and the trial is a matter of life-and-death for everyone.

THE FIFTH WITNESS
WINNER OF THE HARPER LEE PRIZE FOR LEGAL FICTION


Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times.  Criminal defense in Los Angeles has virtually dried up, and he has had to expand his business into foreclosure defense.  But just when Mickey thinks criminal court is in his rearview mirror, one of his new clients is accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home.

For Mickey, it's back to what he does best.  He puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, despite what seems to be a mountain of evidence against her and his own suspicions that his client is guilty.  His digging reveals that the murdered banker was involved in dirty dealings of his own.  After two professional thugs put Mickey in the hospital, he knows he's on the right trail.  Now, despite the growing danger, the lawyer is ready to mount the best defense of his career.

THE GODS OF GUILT
A Lincoln Lawyer Novel
by Michael Connelly

IN THE RIVETING NEW COURTROOM THRILLER FROM #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR MICHAEL CONNELLY, LINCOLN LAWYER MICKEY HALLER DEFENDS A MURDER CASE IN WHICH THE VICTIM WAS HIS FORMER CLIENT.  IS MICKEY TO BLAME?


Mickey Haller gets the text "Call me ASAP-187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention.  Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game.

When Mickey discovers that the victim was a prostitute he once represented and thought he had rescued, he knows there is no way he'll let this one go.  The case is suddenly about more than the guilt or innocence of the defendant - it's about finding out what happened to a woman he cared for, a woman who he learns was back in L.A. and back in the life.  Far from saving her, Mickey might have been the one who put her in danger.

Mickey must follow his gut instinct directly into a dangerous world of intrigue and double-dealing to get justice for both of his clients, living and dead.  As he faces the "gods of guilt" - the jurors who will deliver the ultimate verdict -  he's forced to struggle with his personal demons for a shot at his own redemption.  The Gods of Guilt shows once again why "Michael Connelly excels, easily surpassing even John Grisham in the building of courtroom suspense"  (Los Angeles Times).

LINCOLN LAWYER MICKEY HALLER IS BACK
IN THE MOST IMPORTANT CASE OF HIS LIFE.
THIS TIME THE DEFENDANT IS HIMSELF.


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.  He's charged with murder but can't post the $5 million bail slapped on him by a vindictive judge.
Choosing to represent himself, Mickey mounts his defense from his jail cell in the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in downtown Los Angeles.  He 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 courtroom skills to counter the damning evidence against him.

But a not-guilty verdict won't be enough.  In order to be truly exonerated, Mickey must find the real killer.  That is the law of innocence.

LINCOLN LAWYER, BOOK 7


LINCOLN LAWYER MICKEY HALLER TAKES A NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE CASE AND ENLISTS THE HELP OF HIS HALF BROTHER, HARRY BOSCH, TO PROVE A WOMAN'S INNOCENCE.

Defense attorney Mickey Haller is back, taking the long-shot cases, where the chances of winning are one in a million.  After getting a wrongfully convicted man out of prison, he is inundated with pleas from incarcerated people claiming innocence.  He brings on board his half brother, retired LAPD detective Harry Bosch, to weed through the letters, knowing most claims will be false.

Bosch pulls a needle from the haystack: a woman in prison for five years for killing her husband, a sheriff 's deputy, though all along, she has maintained that she didn't do it.  Bosch reviews the case and sees elements that don't add up, and a sheriff 's department intent on bringing quick justice in the killing of one of its own.

Now Haller has an uphill battle in court, a David fighting Goliaths to vindicate his client.  The path for both lawyer and investigator is fraught with danger from those who don't want the case reopened and will stop at nothing to keep the Haller-Bosch dream team from finding the truth.  Packed with intrigue and courtroom drama, Resurrection Walk shows once again that Michael Connelly is "the most consistently superior living crime fiction author" (South Florida Sun Sentinel).

"Buoyed by the slick duds and his brainy patter, the so-called Lincoln Lawyer (who indeed does most of his work and lives much of his life in the back seat of his Town Car) turns in another dazzling courtroom performance."
- MARILYN STASIO, NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
