Book Title: The Law of Innocence

Author: Michael Connelly

Publisher: Little Brown and Company

Publication Date: November 10,2020

 

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 .

On 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.

    Gripping... Fans who snapped up Michael Connelly's recent Jack McEvoy crime novel, Fair Warning, are in for another treat from the blockbuster author.

    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.

    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.

    When it comes to series mysteries, there's everybody else, and then there's Michael Connelly. Is he really that good, you ask? Oh yeah, he's really that good.
    Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

    Mickey Haller is the kind of slick, cynical showman who can't resist making high drama out of every routine legal procedure . . . But Connelly is himself a master manipulator, and there's always something deadly serious behind his entertaining courtroom high jinks.
    Jonathan Shapiro, Los Angeles Times
    November 11, 2020
    Taken together, Connelly's novels form an indispensable, compelling chronicle of LA . . . His books are rich in the details and meanings of seismic events that have formed the rough contours of LA law and order.
