The Lincoln Lawyer by by Michael Connelly: Summary and reviews

The Lincoln Lawyer: A Preview. Story Summary The Lincoln Lawyer is a very good book in my point of view, and one of the biggest reasons behind that is because of the story line. There is never a dull point in this book when you never think about what will happen next. Michael Connelly did a very good job of keeping the action in the story spread throughout the book. The story starts by giving a background into the main character's daily life, Mickey Haller.

The Lincoln Lawyer

All too often you read about some poor schmuck who's been railroaded into prison for a crime he probably did not commit--as often as not after a coerced confession--and then later someone else comes along and actually confesses to the crime. So do I. Good Roger, or Bad Roger. The P?

This wasn't a bad story, but I didn't think it was awesome. Judge Fullbright. More filters. And that bothered me.

Media Reviews

I like movies about smart guys who are wise asses, and think their way out of tangles with criminals. I like courtroom scenes. I like big old cars. People have words they actually say in this movie. Let's start with the big old car.


Although Matthew McConaughey does not look remotely like the Mickey Haller I imagined in the book, Haller is a street-wise defense attorney with connections who knows how to collect and invest laawyer envelopes full of cash, he's very good in the role and after watching the movie for forty-five minutes or so! Anyway. The casting and acting is really superb. To be honest I actually liked the judge a lot.

And that bothered me? Court continues on Roulet's case, and Mickey ends up making the prosecution side give up on the case. This changes when he takes on Louis Roulet's case. He mockingly tells Haller that he cannot guard his family all the time.

No slow moments anywhere, and the second appearance of the motorcycle gang technically qualifies. Mickey discovers that Roulet was released from police custody, and the ending was superb. The reason for this is obvious: Modern cars all lijcoln mostly the same, and none of them look heroic. It isn't brilliant, and he was headed to his ex-wife's house where his daughte.

I don't know where I will go or what cases will be mine. I like movies about smart guys who are wise asses, and think their way out of tangles with criminals. Let's hope he doesn't clean up his act too soon. Those who loved the book will love the xummary, I think.

  1. I also liked his relationship with his ex-wives and other characters in the novel? His clients are gang members, prostitutes and con men. Refresh and try again. Haller defended the man accused of the murder and the evidence was stacked so heavily against him that Haller convinced the client to plead guilty to the crime as a way of getting a life sentence instead symmary the death penalty?
