Mickey Haller, the Lincoln Lawyer, is pulled over in what appears to be a routine traffic stop, and the police find a body in the boot. Haller doesn’t know anything except that he’s innocent, and he’ll need to call on all his resources to work out who is setting him up and to thwart them.
Normally, if I’m reading book 34 in a series, it’s likely I’ll have read the 33 before it. Not this time though… I’ve read a couple by Connelly before and love his style, but haven’t committed to working through the series. And what I loved about this book was that it really didn’t matter that I don’t know the rest, he paints the characters and their connections and backgrounds swiftly with all the information I required to totally draw me in.
