Defense attorney Mickey Haller - The Lincoln Lawyer - rides the wave of freeing a wrongfully convicted man from prison. Inundated with pleas from incarcerated people claiming innocence, Haller enlists the help of ex-LAPD detective Harry Bosch to find the next case which could result in a resurrection walk. When Bosch finds a needle in the haystack - a woman imprisoned for murdering her husband, a sheriff's deputy - they discover evidence that doesn't add up, and a department pushed for quick closure in the killing of one of its own.
But is this rushed justice - or something more sinister?As they face a David versus Goliath court battle, the secrets which could lead to an innocent woman walking free could also mark the end of the Haller-Bosch dream team. . .
