Description:

It has been seven years since we have had a new Lincoln Lawyer thriller from Michael Connelly. In The Law of Innocence Defence attorney Mickey Haller is pulled
over by police, who find the body of a client in the trunk of his Lincoln. Haller is charged with murder and can’t make the exorbitant $5 million bail slapped on him by a vindictive judge. Mickey elects to defend himself and must strategize and build his defence from his jail cell in the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in downtown Los Angeles, all the while looking over his shoulder. As an officer of the court, he is an instant target. Mickey knows he has been framed. Now, with the help of his trusted team, he must figure out who has plotted to destroy his life and why. Then he has to go before a judge and jury and prove his innocence.

In his highest stakes case yet, Mickey Haller fights for his life and shows why he is ‘a worthy colleague of Atticus Finch … in the front of the pack in the legal thriller game’ (Los Angeles Times).

My View:

Another outstanding legal procedural/mystery from this talented writer. 

Once upon a time I used to eagerly await opening my  Christmas presents – there would always be a new Connelly wrapped and under the tree.  I would then devour the book.

These days I cannot wait till Christmas! I acquire as soon as released and then devour! Nom Nom!
