Michael Connelly (born July 21, 1956, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American author of detective novels and other crime fiction, notably those featuring LAPD Detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch.
-------------
Now, have you read John Grisham? I am sure, most of you did. Next question, have you read Jeffrey Archer? I will get more Ayes for this question than the previous. Now the killer..
How many of you want to read a book which is a mix of the talents of both these great authors? I won’t guess the answer this time. I’d simply suggest you read Michael Connelly Books.

This book, the Lincoln lawyer is a story of Criminal Defense Attorney Micky Haller who operates out of the back seat of his Lincoln Town Car, traveling between the far-flung courthouses of Los Angeles to defend clients of every kind, mostly on the wrong side of the law. Bikers, con artists, drunk drivers, drug dealers — they're all on Mickey Haller's client list. For him, the law is rarely about guilt or innocence — it's about negotiation and manipulation. Sometimes it's even about justice. And it is one of those times when he wants justice that this story is all about

A Beverly Hills playboy arrested for attacking a woman he picked up in a bar chooses Micky Haller to defend him, and Mickey has his first high-paying client in years. It is a dream come true to have such a franchisee case. And as the evidence stacks up, Haller comes to believe this may be the easiest case of his career.

But all doesn’t seem to be right. A close friend of Micky is murdered and his search for truth leads him to uncomfortable corners. Uncomfortable for all the stake holders who do not mind to kill Micky to keep their secrets.
It was a golden find, when my friend recommended me this book. An edge of the seat, nail biting thriller. Keeps you engaged all the time.

Trivia:

This book is being made into a movie by director Brad Furman starring Matthew McConaughey, Marisa Tomei and Ryan Phillippe. This Movie is scheduled for 2011 release.

Brad Furman at The Lincoln lawyer gets a credit that remains from the first steps of the tape to the last, and that is greatly appreciated. Obviously you have to bring out some of the topics that have worked best in this type of movie, but it is true that in the case of film "judicial" thing is pretty well worn.

Surprising. With a different, showy and credible Matthew. A tape that is worth it.
