I thought this was one of his best works. Great read!! I'm now going to reserve the movie and hope they didn't make too many changes from the book.

Loved this book. Couldn't put it down. I didn't know they were making it a movie and just after I finished the book it came to the theater. Good read, good movie.

Michael Connelly certainly has a winner in the character of Mickey Haller. He's the perfect modern day embodiment of the irascible scoundrel of days gone by. The guy defends the scum of the earth, putting killers and rapists back on the street based on technicalities, and yet the reader loves him. In the hands of a lesser writer this book would've been a train wreck but Connelly has crafted a true gem here.

AMAZING BOOK!!! Absolutely one of the best!

Film set for release March 18, 2011. "The Book: Crime novelist Michael Connelly can't and won't stop churning out hit books, and this is his 16th — the story of Micky Haller (half-brother of Connelly's main protagonist Heironymous Bosch), who operates a two-bit law practice out of the back of a Lincoln Town Car. Haller lands a wealthy client who wants off the hook for attempted murder charges against a lovely young woman, and the lies and demons spool out from there. "The Film: It is exciting to see Matthew McConaughey back in a meaty, dramatic role after he has spent so much time in board shorts (there are serious Time To Kill flashbacks here). With an ensemble cast that includes Marisa Tomei and Ryan Phillippe and the kind of grimy cinematography that popcorn was made for, The Lincoln Lawyer should be one of spring's big box office draws. "See It With: A second date. The action sequences and the soapy legalese will give you plenty to talk about over spaghetti."

Micky Haller is a sleazy defense lawyer who will defend anyone as long as that person keeps the cash flowing. He has only one fear- to condemn an innocent man to jail. When he is paid by a seemingly rich Mamma's boy to defend him in a trial where he claims to be innocent, Haller finds himself dragged into a dark world of murder and lies. How does one go about defending pure evil?
