‘A superb natural storyteller’ Lee Child The Lincoln Lawyer
There is no client as scary as an innocent man… Mickey is a Lincoln Lawyer – a criminal defence attorney operating out of the back of his car, a Lincoln – taking whatever cases the system throws at him. He’s been a defence lawyer for a long time, and he knows just how to work the legal system. When a Beverly Hills rich boy is arrested for brutally beating a woman, Haller gets his first high-paying client in years. The evidence mounts on the defence’s side, and Haller might even be in the rare position of defending a client who is actually innocent.
But then the case starts to fall apart. And neither the suspect nor the victim are quite who they seem, and Haller quickly discovers that when you swim with the sharks, you might just end up as prey… The Brass Verdict
Mickey Haller returns, and this time, Bosch is on the case too… Defence lawyer Mickey Haller has had some problems, but now he’s put all that behind him and is ready to resume his career. Then another lawyer, Vincent, dies, and Haller gets an unexpected windfall: he inherits all Vincent’s clients, putting his stalled career back on track at a stroke.
Not only that, but Vincent had taken on a high-profile and potentially lucrative murder case. It’ll be a trial that promises big fees and an even bigger place in the media spotlight – and if Mickey can win against the odds, he’ll really be back in the big leagues.
The only problem is the detective handling the case – a certain Harry Bosch – is convinced the killer must be one of Vincent’s clients. Suddenly Mickey is faced with the biggest challenge of his career: how to defend a client successfully who might just be planning to murder him. The Reversal
Mickey Haller and Harry Bosch together take on a seemingly unwinnable case…
When defence lawyer Mickey Haller is invited by the Los Angeles County District Attorney to prosecute a case for him, he knows something strange is going on. Mickey’s one of the best American legal brains in the business, and to switch sides likes this would be akin to asking a fox to guard the hen-house. But the high-profile case of Jason Jessup, a convicted child killer who spent almost 25 years on death row before DNA evidence freed him, is an intriguing one…
Eager for the publicity and drawn to the challenge, Mickey takes the case, with LAPD Detective Harry Bosch on board as his lead investigator. But as a new trial date is set, it starts to look like he’s been set up. Mickey and Harry are going to have to dig deep into the past and find the truth about what really happened to the victim all those years ago in this nail-biting courtroom drama.
