1. The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly
Yes, I did read the movie cover one
I found this in the apartment we were staying in and felt it would be an easily digestible start to the new year of reading. It was a quick and enjoyable read, though it felt a bit more simplistic than the Harry Bosch books I had read by Connelly. I liked the set up of the protagonist, he is kind of like the pre-Better Call Saul, not quite as full on sleazy but playing the same game. He has no office, but just rides around in his Lincolns, talking on the cell phone and keeping his files in a storage locker. The actual plot, once it moved out of the mystery mode and into the thriller mode, was less engaging. You kind of knew where it would go and the bad guy wasn't given enough depth to make him interesting. Still, I definitely kept turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next.
1/3 American, 1/3 Canadian, 1/3 Montrealer, when I'm not working for the planet and living my lucky life, I hang out on the internet and write about culture and language in Montreal, books and movies. I also rant on a wide range of subjects and try to do that here so my wife doesn't have to be the only one to suffer.
