Just awful. I expected much much better from Connelly. Weak plot. Characters not credible. Disappointing.

Interesting story about the Lincoln Lawyer. Not action filled and some (many?) will find it slow going.

Thoroughly enjoyable, with insights to jury selection, prison life and the pandemic.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, started a little slow but soon gained speed. The ending was so so, but on reflection, that's the only way it could have ended.

I really like Connelly's writing and found this book just as riveting as his other books right up to almost the end. I thought that the conclusion to the trial was a letdown after such a wonderful lead up in the trial itself. Still…

4 stars. The latest book in the Micky Haller/Lincoln Lawyer series was an interesting read. Mickey has been set up and is in jail for the murder of a former deadbeat client of his, found shot and in the trunk of his car. He enlists his…

Michael Connelly has the reputation of being a master storyteller. This book is no exception. The Lincoln Lawyer, Mick Haller is just coming off a big win when he is pulled over by a cop who finds a body in his car trunk. Things go…

Excellent! I found this to be a good page-turner, very well written. I see some comments here are mistaking the views of some of Connelly's characters to be his personal views. This is fiction, folks! And jury selection is what it is,…

Michael Connelly was one of my favorite authors. I've read all of his printed works. Sadly, he's been on a downward trajectory for a while. Perhaps he's bored, perhaps his financial success and hobnobbing with Hollywood folks is a…

Not very good. The plot isn’t realistic and for some reason the author decided to introduce his political beliefs into the plot. Ugh! I stopped watching TV so I could avoid the political nastiness and then it’s introduced in the book…

One of my favorite authors and I love his characters.... So disappointing, however, to see all the Trump bashing in this book! Doesn't matter what side anyone's on, I just want to be able to escape the negative stuff for a while, and I do…

(Added quotes today Mar 21) The flamboyant criminal defense lawyer Mickey Haller (AKA the Lincoln lawyer first introduced by the author in 2005,) was arrested for the murder of one of his scum bag client on Monday night, October 28, 2019…

A page-turner as usual. Can't imagine what life would be like if Michael Connelly retires! Stephen King is right that a great story is written with the heart, so it'll be impossible for an "assistant" or "mentee" to continue the amazing…

FANTASTIC book. I have to believe that Connelly wrote this himself instead of many other "older" authors, like Patterson who puts out a huge number of books all written by his co-authors

It was not bad, but not great either. Not one of Connelly's best. It started well, but started dragging about half way through. The ending came up fast and was a surprise. I was disappointed to see Connelly using one of his books to…

I really enjoyed this book. Hands down the best gotcha courtroom scene in all of the Micky Haller series. Connelly weaves a great story and how he ties in other novels is brilliant.

Four stars... Because... It's a Lincoln Lawyer novel, featuring protagonist Mickey Haller in his 6th and best novel yet. Great courtroom drama--and lots of "Haller" type sardonic humour The gang's all here--including Mick's two…

Skilled storytelling, as is par for the course for Connolly. This is my least favorite in both the Bosch and Haller series. The main focus is on Mickey Haller, and the other characters are relegated to background/supporting characters for…

Pretty good stuff.... detailed thoughts, words, on how he/one might prepare for court, how it really works, dealing with judges, other lawyers, police, contingency planning, etc...... not a whole lot of loose ends, either. Went very quickly

Great read by Michael Connelly. I always picture Matthew Mcconaughey as I am reading as he was in The Lincoln Lawyer movie. The lawyer talk is a bit tricky to understand for the layman. I enjoyed the book nontheless. My first time…

As always, Michael Connelly never disappoints me. I have read all his books. I couldn't put down this book when I started reading it and finished it literally in 1 1/2 day. Look forward to the next one.

Michael Connelly's books are always page turners, and this one is no exception. While I prefer Connelly's Bosch series, this Lincoln Lawyer entry featuring criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller being charged and taken to trial for…

An excuse for a murder mystery. Mr Connelly used a book concept to give us his personal views on none other than Donald Trump and total disdain for those who voted for him. I used to be a fan. We all know the press never lies and I'm…

Great story. Can't wait until Connelly pins his next.
