I have been having a bit of reading slump since Christmas. Reading but finding the books a slog and hard work. So to pick up Michael Connelly and get pulled in immediately to his story with no effort was lovely. The Lincoln Lawyer is framed and has to defend himself. Just a straight forward crime read where the pages whizzed by. I usually prefer the Bosch books but of the two Connelly books last year, I preferred this one. He does make one interesting choice though which is to set the story in a specific time i.e the approach of Covid-19. That surprised me at first but I guess all contemporary writers are going to have to make that choice. Very enjoyable. ( )

Strangely unsatisfying resolution to the legal case at the heart of the mystery makes me wonder if there will be a follow-up revealing more of the full story, but otherwise the fast-paced story kept me in suspense. Defense lawyer Mickey Haller, accused of murder, is placed in life-threatening danger as he refuses to waive his right to a speedy trial. The author weaves in the news of the pandemic from January to the first shelter in place order in the spring. The audio narration by Peter Giles was great, as always! ( )

As always, Michael Conne not the type of people with whom one would want to associate and sometimes they are guilty of the crime of which they have been charged, he strongly believes that everyone is entitled to a fair trial and that the prosecutor must prove the charges in order to get a guilty verdict lly puts us into the character of defense lawyer, Mickey Haller. While his clients are often.
In THE LAW OF INNOCENCE, the person being charged is Mickey Haller. He had just won a major case and was celebrating with a gathering with his employees and friends. As he left and began his drive home, he was pulled over. The police officer was reluctant to tell him why he was being stopped (eventually he said it was for a missing rear license plate) but insisted on looking in the trunk. There he found the body of a former client. Haller was charged with murder and the judge set the bail at $5 million. Haller could not afford that and realized he had been set up. He was forced to try to build his defense from inside a jail cell.
The prosecutor was determined to destroy him any way she could. Competence and ethics were not her strong points.
Haller also knew that not only must he be found not guilty, he must be proven innocent which meant that he and his team had to find the real murderer.
THE LAW OF INNOCENCE is a fast-paced, intense novel. The book is well-written. The steps he and his team take to build his case and carry it out in the courtroom are logical and interesting. Another winner from Michael Connelly. ( )

Still love Michael Connelly's books. I've been reading him since my teens and will read him until he stops writing!

The Law of Innocence

It should have been a great day in the life of attorney Mickey Haller. He had truly had a television Perry Mason style moment that had destroyed a witness and ultimately won his case. The celebration at the Redwood on Second Street had been a fun time for all in attendance.

It was on to the drive home that things started to go wrong. First it was the traffic stop. Within a few minutes it was the handcuffs. Then it was the fluid dripping from the trunk. Then it was the clearly visible dead body inside the trunk. Halloween 2019 seemingly has come a couple of days early and Mickey Haller is in for quite a terror filled ride as his entire life is on the line.

Arrested for a murder he did not commit; Mickey Haller is incarcerated at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility. To get out of a nearly perfect frame job he is going to not only have to stay alive in the facility where he has few friends among inmates or staff, he has to build a credible -- somebody else did it -- style defense. Figuring out who he knows that could have done this will take time. Something he is in short supply of since he faces a looming trial and multiple threats including COVID-19.

The Law of Innocence: A Lincoln Lawyer Novel by Michael Connelly brings together nearly every character currently and previously present in this series. Haller’s defense that is ultimately presented in court as COVID-19 begins to draw public attention in early 2020 has numerous links to previous cases. This reader occasionally struggled to remember those cases before deciding to just read on and focus on the current story. The resulting read is complicated, intense, and pretty good. Because of the links in this book will invalidate pretty much any reason to read the earlier books, I suggest reading your way forward in the series to get to here. It will be worth it.

My reading copy came in eBook format via the Dallas Library and the LibbyApp and the technical assistance of my son, Scott, who did some sort of magic to make things work.
