Description du produit
Quatrième de couverture
BUT WILL IT BE HIS LAST?
'This is Connelly on top form . . . A terrific thriller' Mail on Sunday
'Grabs you on the very first page and doesn't let go' The Times
* * * * *
Heading home after winning his latest case, defense attorney Mickey Haller - The Lincoln Lawyer - is pulled over by the police. They open the trunk of his car to find the body of a former client.
Haller knows the law inside out. He will be charged with murder. He will have to build his case from behind bars. And the trial will be the trial of his life.
Because Mickey Haller will defend himself in court.
With watertight evidence stacked against him, Haller will need every trick in the book to prove he was framed.
But a not-guilty verdict isn't enough. In order to truly walk free, Haller knows he must find the real killer - that is the law of innocence...

'Pick up this gripping book at your peril, especially if you have other things to do like working or sleeping.' Express
'The so-called Lincoln Lawyer . . . turns in another dazzling courtroom performance' New York Times Book Review
* * * * *
"The law of innocence is unwritten. It will not be found in a leather-bound code book. It will never be argued in a courtroom. In nature, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. In the law of innocence, for every man not guilty of a crime there is a man out there who is. And to prove true innocence the guilty man must be found and exposed to the world."

Ne manquait au tableau que le domaine carcéral, vu de l'intérieur ; c'est chose faite ici, puisque l'avocat à la Lincoln se retrouve derrière les barreaux.
Chapitres courts, action nerveuse.
C'est Mickey qui s'exprime, comme dans les autres opus de la série ; curieusement, je ne retrouve pas tout à fait le ton qu'il employait avec son frère lors de leur précédente association (dans la série Bosch). Car, oui, Bosch est de la partie lui aussi.
Je ne me plains pas du changement, car la lecture précédente me mettait en difficultés sur certaines tournures idiomatiques du langage parlé ; ici aussi ce sont plutôt les dialogues qu'il faut élucider.
L'actualité récente fait également une incursion...
J'ai dévoré, mais ! car il y a un mais... la fin nous laisse sur notre faim.
Sans aller jusqu'au cliffhanger, car nous bénéficions d'un épilogue en bonne et due forme, tout est cependant loin d'être élucidé - ce dont je me doutais au vu du nombre de pages.
Il va falloir attendre longtemps?
Juge, confinez Connelly pour la peine !!
Ce sixième volet (ou septième selon que l'on considère The Crossing comme un "Haller") ne changera pas mon point de vue.
C'est même probablement le livre le plus ennuyeux de Connelly. Il ne se passe pas grand chose dans le livre, en terme de rebondissements. La vie carcérale de Haller n'est pas assez détaillée pour être vraiment saisissante, la petite implication de Bosch dans la contre enquête est décevante, les miettes de romance n'ont aucun intérêt.
La partie réservée au prétoire (une bonne moitié du livre) est particulièrement fade.
C'est peut-être aussi un peu de ma faute : je n'arrive pas à m'attacher autant à Mickey Haller qu'à Hieronymus Bosch.
D'un point de vue technique c'est toujours aussi bien écrit et aussi bien construit, ce qui permet d'aller au bout du livre, mais il sera très vite oublié.

The author used highly defamatory descriptions of this politician’s character to justify the novel’s leading character’s striking potential jurors. The irony of the author’s using this politician (or any living real-life person) in this way is that the novel’s plucky main character was on trial for murder, and the dishonest prosecution was continually making it difficult for the defendant to defend himself – just as the author’s use of a novel as a vehicle for defamation purposes has precluded this current-day politician from defending himself. It is disgusting, cowardly, and very disappointing.
For any liberals reading this post who feel the need to attack me for stating my views, don't bother. You have called me names and tried to shame me for over four years so I am used to anything you have to throw at me now.
I don't like negative politics introduced in my favorite fiction I read. I read to escape the negativity in the political world. I don't like it when supporters of a political candidate are singled out as being dishonest or stupid for voting for a specific candidate. That can be perceived as being divisive and insulting to readers.
I enjoyed the legal strategy in this book, just not the negative politics.
I started reading Michael Connelly's books back in 2012 after a friend recommended Lincoln Lawyer as a good read. I think this amazing story is probably number 40 or thereabouts and I have to say that it is the best yet.
It was like a good meal which I deliberately savoured over about 5 wonderful courses, each accompanied by a beautiful glass of wine. Because I enjoyed it so much, I am leaving a big tip which is "READ THIS BOOK- IT IS AMAZING"
Connelly is best known for his long series of books featuring Hieronymus ‘Harry’ Bosch. Formerly a long-serving detective in LAPD, and more recently retired, and acting as a private investigator. Connelly went out of his way to ensure that Bosch aged in real time, and while that helped with the books’ sense of authenticity, it meant that he had to make hard decisions about when, and how, Bosch would step down from the police force.
Connelly has also written a second, related series of novels featuring Mickey Haller, known as the ‘Lincoln Lawyer’ because for a long time he worked from the back of his chauffeur driven Town Car, rather than from a formal office. However, it gradually emerges that Haller is actually Bosch’s half-brother, and in recent years they have often worked on the same case. It is not a frictionless relationship. For one thing, Bosch’s upbringing was significantly harder than that of Haller, involving care home and intervention by social services. Bosch had also been a cop for almost all his working life, and as such had formed an intrinsic dislike (and distrust) of defence lawyers, whom he dismissed as frequently subverting, rather than upholding, justice. Over the years, however, they have established an accommodation.
As the novel opens, we learn that Haller himself is in prison, on remand and awaiting trial for murder after the body of one of his former clients was found in the boot of his car. The case appears fairly strong, and the District Attorney’s Office is pursuing their investigations zealously, feeling extra savour in the thought of perhaps convicting someone who over the years had proved such a thorn in their side. Haller has marshalled his own team, and is working vigorously on his defence from his prison cell, but knows that he is embarking on the most important case of his career.
Connelly has a fine style for crime writing. He develops his plots clearly, and the reader invariably finds themselves engrossed in the story virtually from the opening page. His characters, from either side of the law, are highly plausible, as are his plots. He never relies on spurious or contrived coincidences. Connelly began his professional life as a crime reporter, which presumably is where he perfected his sharp prose style. His writing is direct and clear. For the last few years, I have worked in the Civil Service, drafting correspondence for government ministers, and the mantra that my colleagues and I frequently cite is for the ABC of good drafting: accuracy, brevity and clarity. Michael Connelly delivers on all three counts.
