In February 2009, I reviewed Michael Connelly's The Lincoln Lawyer. I was totally taken with the protagonist, Mickey Haller, who "may defend scum, but he's good at what he does and he does know the law." The novel is not your average court-room, lawyer-genre mystery-thriller. There is action, and there are personal stories and plenty of complex clues and red herrings.
I was so excited to hear that The Lincoln Lawyer is being made into a movie. Haller is a character you're going to root for. I cannot wait until the film comes to a theater near me.
Just take a look at the trailer
Pretty exciting, yeah? And the cast is fantastic.
Giveaway: To celebrate the film adaptation and to introduce you to Mickey Haller, I am thrilled to be able to offer five (yes, that's five!) of my readers a chance to win a copy of the book and a movie poster. Because the giveaway is being hosted by the publisher, the winner must have a U.S or Canada mailing address. If you live elsewhere, perhaps you can find a North American buddy who will mail the book and poster on to you.
To be one of the five winners of a book and a movie poster, fill out the following form. I'll pick the winners by random number generator on February 13 (and will delete all personal data). Remember, even though you entered on another site, you can still enter here to increase your chances of winning.
Don't forget to learn more about the book and the movie on Facebook and on Hachette's website.
