Lynda Mubarak Maxine Listens by Dr. Details of the crime bring up uncomfortable parallels with a former case, and Haller discovers the two cases are intertwined. Most of Haller's career has been defending garden-variety criminals, including a local biker club led by Eddie Vogel Trace Adkins. Roulet is accused of brutally beating prostitute Regina Campo Margarita Levieva. Roulet insists he is the innocent victim of a setup.
Haller and his investigator, Frank Levin William H. Haller's ex-wife, prosecutor Maggie McPherson Marisa Tomei , has never appreciated Haller representing guilty clients, though they remain close. Haller wonders if he should have done more for Martinez rather than persuading him to plead guilty to avoid the death penalty. Haller visits the prison, where Martinez becomes agitated when Haller shows him Roulet's photo. Haller now believes Roulet is the killer in the Martinez case, but, bound by attorney—client confidentiality rules, is unable to reveal what he knows.
Roulet breaks into Haller's house and nonchalantly admits to committing the murder for which Martinez was convicted. He makes veiled threats toward Haller's ex-wife and their daughter. Levin is found shot to death after leaving Haller a voicemail message claiming that he found Martinez's "ticket out of jail. Detective Lankford Bryan Cranston , who dislikes Haller, discovers the gun's registration and suspects Haller's involvement in Levin's murder. Haller is certain that Roulet stole the weapon when he broke into Haller's home. Obliged to do his best for his client, guilty or not, Haller ruthlessly cross-examines Campo and discredits her in the jury's eyes.
Haller then sets up a known prison informant with information on the previous murder. When the informant testifies, Haller discredits him, and the state's attorney Josh Lucas can only move to dismiss all charges. Roulet is set free, to his mother's delight, but the police arrest him immediately for the previous murder, based upon testimony Haller coaxed from the informant. Haller acquires a pistol from his driver, Earl, for protection. Roulet is released due to lack of evidence and intends to kill Haller's ex-wife and daughter.
Haller is waiting at Maggie's house when Roulet arrives. It has the same humor and sexiness as the first book. I loved the chemistry between Gabby and Braden. I also love all the antics that Gabby gets into. She is hilarious. This book is hilarious. I am so looking forward to the 3rd book in this series where we can explore the other characters in the book. I just hope there is more Gabby and Braden because they are hot!
The Lincoln Lawyer (film) - Wikipedia
This was a box set of books 1 and 2 in this series. I absolutely loved them! The characters are hilarious and so much fun. I have laughed out loud through both of them. In addition to a very romantic love story between Gabriel and Braden, we get to read about some of the funniest law cases being brought before the court.
Harper Lee’s new novel: read the first chapter
Braden is an Assistant District Attorney and Gabriel is a Public Defender, so they're on opposite sides in the courtroom, but they make up for it in the bedroom. These people are so funny and their conversations with the back and forth make these books so entertaining. But the strong emotion and love that happens between Braden and Gabriel is so sweet.
They are a wonderful couple. There's a little mystery involved because someone is sending threatening notes trying to break them up, but it's handled in a comedic way where you have no idea what they'll try next. Adam and Lily's story is next - which I've already read and loved just as much. This is a wonderful series. Make time when you read it because you won't want to put it down. Review: Great read if Side note: Both books in the box set are amazing. It doesn't even feel like reading most of the time.
It feels like watching a romantic comedy because the writing plays out just that smoothly. It's easy to enjoy, not too long of a read, not a stressful one either. By the end of the book you've enjoyed a sharp tongue or two and are just left feeling good. Gehen Sie zu Amazon. Entdecken Sie jetzt alle Amazon Prime-Vorteile. Geld verdienen mit Amazon.
