This story follows a criminal defense attorney known as Mickey Haller. The book is titled "Lincoln Lawyer" simply because he goes from place to place in a Lincoln car driven by an old client as a way to pay his debt to society. It is mainly about Mickey Haller investigating the case of Louis Roulet, who has been convicted of assualt and attempted murder. It goes on to how solving this case opens Mickey up as a person and allows him to see the truth in a past case.

I gave this book 4 stars because it was never too hard to follow. It is a crime-solving book with mystery mixed in. It is interesting to follow and think about. The events that happen in the book and the information given is never overly-complex and the story itself travels at a good pace, meaning one thing never gets boring.

"You're a sleazy defense lawyer with two ex-wifes and an eight-year-old daughter and we all love you." (pg. 79, Michael Connelly).

This quote represents irony at how this is a man who has made some mistakes in his life, but instead of people disliking him for his mistakes, they like him because he is able to confront them and not run away from the past.

I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good mystery. If you don't like mystery, justice, or crime, then this book could be a little dry and boring.
