it was amazing
Read in January, 2007

hat I have found in this novel is a blend of a deep knowledge of the subject, (the application of Criminal Law and police procedural) and a brilliant and poignant easy fast writing style plenty of colorful quick dialogues and images that makes this book a lighting bolt from the front to back covers.

The above features are skills the author acquired step by step from his past experiences creating his Harry Bosch series

The central character, Michael Haller, a criminal defense attorney who uses as office his cell phone and the back seat of his Lincoln car, has many dimensions and seems to pop out of the pages, a very funny heroe

It is interesting to know that the author know the ropes around the legal system, the cops and the gang world and what it is noteworthy is that the Lincoln Lawyer plays his cards employing his wide knowledge not of the Law but of the "tricks of the trade", and also makes bright spicy observations every step of the way (for the reader) about how you have to deal to accomplish your goals (get a non-guilty verdict for what you well know is your client guilty.)

The ending brightly conceived crowns this excellent read and does not disappoint in any way
