"The Lincoln Lawyer" was a stereotypical legal drama with a seasoned attorney, a client with a story that seems to good to be true, and a few surprises along the way. I enjoyed Michael Haller's character, which is summed up quite well in this statement from the book, "Much of society thought of me as the devil but they were wrong. I was a greasy angel." That was an interesting way to describe all the legal maneuvers Haller goes through to defend his clients -- people that society would generally look down on.
I thought the book did a good job of portraying the life of a defense attorney, and the story moved along at a good pace. I just didn't walk away from the book with anything more than being entertained, which is not necessarily a bad thing!
