THE LINCOLN LAWYER
by MICHAEL CONNELLY

January 21st to February 8th

SYNOPSIS (borrowed from B&N):
   New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly delivers his first legal thriller--an incendiary tale about a cynical defense attorney whose one remaining spark of integrity may cost him his life.
   Mickey Haller has spent all his professional life afraid that he wouldn't recognize innocence if it stood right in front of him. But what he should have been on the watch for was evil.<
   Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend the clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients.
   From bikers to con artists to drunk drivers and drug dealers, they're all on Mickey Haller's client list. But when a Beverly Hills rich boy is arrested for brutally beating a woman, Haller has his first high-paying client in years. It's a franchise case and he's sure it will be a slam dunk in the courtroom. For once, he may be defending a client who is actually innocent.
   But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face-to-face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame. To escape without being burned, Haller must use all of his skills to manipulate a system in which he no longer believes.

I do believe in the justice system - I think we have to if we do not want to constantly be at war with each other.

No I do not believe in the justice system, there's too many loopholes, too many specifics and it's too easy to let criminals walk away.

That question is a toughy, since DNA came in more and more person in jail are being found out they were not guilty of the crime.
I really do not know myself.

On the whole, I do believe in it. I do think that poor people don't always get the representation that they deserve and that some rich people get off too lightly.There are few crimes that I think that people who committed them should never be let free but I also think that there should some way to reform prisons so that people don't come out of them more hardened than before. I really like the programs that give prisoners more responsibility and teaches them how to handle it.

I worked in the justice system for years and saw it work and fail.

I have not read Michael Connelly yet. This one sounds like a good one to start with.

I believe perfection is the enemy of good. So even if the justice system is not perfect, it serves an essential purpose in our society.

Yes, I believe in the justice system but I feel that very often the sentence is not in proportion to the crime.

I do believe in the Justice System ... but as with any branch of government there are some really good people that serve and some that really are there to only serve them self.

The older I get the less faith I have in our justice system. Too biased and unfair, and focused on punishment rather than rehabilitation.

Please count me in. Thank you!
