Connelly scores big with The Lincoln Lawyer

The Lincoln Lawyer The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly

Rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of the best books that I have read in the past few years. From the very first page, the reader can identify with Mickey, the protagonist, and what he has to go through to maintain his ambulance-chasing law practice and make a living.

Connelly has constructed a taut thriller where the tension and the stakes are constantly going up. Mickey is a clever lawyer but sometimes too clever. His Golden Goose client turns out to be more than he had in mind.

Connelly shows that he is the master of the thriller with this book. He will do his fans (which includes me) a great favor if he writes another one with this character and with the same gripping style.
