Just when some thought the estimable Michael Connelly had peaked with his popular Harry Bosch series and might just retire to a tropical isle, he introduces lawyer Mickey Haller in a SUSPENSE driven novel The Lincoln Lawyer. It must be a thrill for a voice performer to have first crack at interpreting a character's vocal patterns, especially a character that's sure to be as well received as Haller. They couldn't have chosen a better reader than Broadway and film actor Adam Grupper. His crisp, powerful delivery heightens the drama in this dynamite thriller and does justice to Connelly's incomparable dialogue. Haller's a lawyer who operates out of his car - he runs a sizable ad in the local yellow pages and attracts clients with his bus stop painted touts. He long ago shed any idealistic notions about the law - well aware that it's about ...negotiation, amelioration, manipulation... His Dad was a famous attorney, but Haller didn't know him very well. With two marriages behind him he sees the world through jaundiced eyes. Problem is most of his clients are low-lifes - drug dealers, and the like. Then, he gets a call. Louis Roulet appears to be a long awaited jackpot. He's a well-to-do Beverly Hills realtor accused of bludgeoning and raping a call girl. But, just as Haller's feeling a hefty fee's on the way, he discovers some things about Roulet that cause him to rethink the realtor's defense. Also check-out Giorgio Kostantinos' -The Quest. A top flight read of a first-rate thriller.
