My Rating: 5 Stars Lincoln Lawyer Mickey Haller must defend himself against murder charges in the heart-stopping new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly. In the night he celebrates a big win, defense attorney Mickey Haller is pulled over by police, who find the body of a former client in the trunk of his Lincoln. Haller is immediately charged with murder but can’t post the exorbitant $5 million bail slapped on him by a vindictive judge. Mickey elects to represent himself and is forced to mount his defense from his jail cell in the Twin Towers Correctional Center in downtown Los Angeles. All the while he needs to look over his shoulder—as an officer of the court he is an instant target, and he makes few friends when he reveals a corruption plot within the jail. But the bigger plot is the one against him. Haller knows he’s been framed, whether by a new enemy or an old one. As his trusted team, including his half-brother, Harry Bosch, investigates, Haller must use all his skills in the courtroom to counter the damning evidence against him. Even if he can obtain a not-guilty verdict, Mickey understands that it won’t be enough. In order to be truly exonerated, he must find out who really committed the murder and why. That is the law of innocence. In his highest stakes case yet, the Lincoln Lawyer fights for his life and proves again why he is “a worthy colleague of Atticus Finch... in the front of the pack in the legal thriller game” (Los Angeles Times).



“A wonderfully twisty legal thriller… As always, Connelly does a splendid job with both the courtroom drama and the suspenseful, often dangerous process behind it… He also skillfully weaves in references to the pandemic… by the end of the book, the full-blown pandemic sets the stage for an explosive finale.” ―Colette Bancroft, Tampa Bays Times

“Stellar… As Connelly builds tension, he weaves in rumors of a spreading virus; people begin wearing masks and chaos erupts at the supermarket. Intelligently plotted, The Law of Innocence again proves Connelly is a master storyteller.” ―Oline H. Cogdill, South Florida Sun Sentinel

“Gripping… Fans who snapped up Michael Connelly's recent Jack McEvoy crime novel, Fair Warning, are in for another treat from the blockbuster author.” ―Christina Ianzito, AARP

“A supremely intelligent, well-paced courtroom thriller by a modern master… L.A. defense attorney Mickey Haller takes on the hardest case of his career in bestseller Connelly’s superlative sixth Lincoln Lawyer novel.” ―Publisher's Weekly (starred review)
