Puts the listener into the mind of the accused lawyer Mickey Haller. Plenty of unexpected twists and turns as well as details that bring the characters to life. I remain a fan of all Connelly had written. ( )

In Michael Connelly's "The Law of Innocence," defense attorney Mickey Haller faces the ultimate challenge: defend himself from a murder charge. He succeeds, of course, with the help of his step-brother, Harry Bosch, his partner, Jennifer Aronson, ex-wife and case manager, Lorna Taylor, her husband and Haller's investigator, Cisco Wojciechowski. He is sustained emotionally by his daughter, Hayley and Hayley's mother and his ex-wife, Maggie McPherson. An element of dramatic irony intrudes by way of Covid 19, which in late winter of 2019/20 begins to shape their lives. In spite of the threat of the virus and imprisonment there is hope for a happier future with Mickey and Maggie recovering their former happy relationship.

I have always enjoyed Connellys Lincoln Lawyer and Bosch series. To have both characters in a book is a treat.

After a dubious traffic stop, a dead body is found in the trunk of Mickey Haller’s
car and he is arrested and jailed for murder. It is up to him and his team to clear him.

It’s not enough to be proven not guilty, to be really free, one must prove one’s innocence. And for this, trusted investigators Cisco and Bosch are on the case. All the other familiar supporting characters are here as well.

There is always something to be learned about judicial practices in Connelly’s courtroom procedurals. Fast paced and engrossing, the introduction of the Covid 19 pandemic is interwoven into the storyline. Another best seller for Connelly. ( )

A Lawyer Who Defends Themselves...
Review of the Little, Brown & Co. audiobook edition (November 10, 2020)

...has to have a good co-counsel.
The Law of Innocence is an excellent courtroom drama with Harry Bosch's half-brother Mickey Haller having to defend himself in what is apparently a framed-up murder charge. Bosch fans will enjoy a brief cameo appearance by Harry, whose current life is not explained much further except that he is retired. The standout cameo is actually by Maggie (McFierce) McPherson, Haller's first wife who makes a dramatic return to the Bosch Universe. Saying too much more would be a spoiler.

Why not a 5-star rating? Explaining that would be a spoiler as well, so let's just say that the locations of the finales felt like a bit of a letdown. But the courtroom maneuvers up until that time were always engaging.

The narration by Peter Giles in all voices was excellent.

I'm Canadian, but it seemed an oddity at one point when the judge says that the Fifth Amendment was as old as the country itself. I.e. If it was as old as 1776 then why did it have to be an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. So I looked it up and found that the Fifth Amendment was not ratified until 1791. ( )

I couldn't wait to read Michael Connelly's newest book - The Law of Innocence. It's a fantastic read (as I knew it would be) and one I finished far too quickly.

The Law of Innocence is the latest in the 'Lincoln Lawyer' series. Mickey Haller is headed home one night after celebrating his latest 'not guilty'. He's stone cold sober when he's pulled over, but cooperates - to a point. Then the cop pops the trunk - and discovers the body inside. Haller is innocent of course, but just like that, he's the one in jail and headed to trial. Mickey elects to represent himself - with some help from his regular team - and some additions. Fans of Connolly will be happy to see Harry Bosch as well. (Another fantastic series!)

And the title? "The law of innocence is unwritten. It will not be found in a leather bound codebook. It will never be argued in a courtroom....In the law of innocence, for every man not guilty of a crime, there is a man out there who is. And the prove true innocence, the guilty man must be found and exposed to the world." That's what Haller wants for himself. They've got to figure out who the real killer is.

Connelly is simply brilliant at plotting. The reader is along for the ride as Haller and team try to piece together the 'why' of the body in his trunk. They are hampered not just by Mickey being locked up, but also by the prosecutor, who is determined to make her mark by taking down the famed 'Lincoln Lawyer.' The courtroom and the machinations of a trial are eye opening. I was fascinated by the behind the scenes look.

I love the characters in this series as well. Mickey is such a strong personality and force of nature. But Connelly also gives him a human side, often shown through his daughter. Faithful readers will be surprised by some of the turns Haller's personal life takes. The reappearance of a past player is very welcome. I look forward to the next book to see where things go. And being in jail gives Mickey a look at the other side of the bars...

The dialogue is so sharp and focused. The prose flow so easily and make for truly addictive reading. Connelly's background and skill are a big part of why his crime and legal thrillers ring so true.

Who, or should I say what, also makes an appearance? Yup, Covid 19. And I loved the brief political opinion one character voices.

So very, very good on so many levels! ( )
