Teaser Tuesdays – December 2, 2014


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can participate.

If you’re new to Teaser Tuesdays, the details are at MizB’s Should Be Reading or on my Teaser Tuesdays Page.

The Lincoln Lawyer
by Michael Connelly


I decided I would need to watch my back with Dobbs. I would keep him close but not that close.

The Lincoln Lawyer is the first book in Connelly’s Mickey Haller series. There are a lot of crossover characters in Connelly’s books. The second and third books of the Mickey Haller series are also part of the Harry Bosch series. I really enjoy it when various characters work together – or in opposition.

Have you read any of Michael Connelly’s books? I’m not up to date but have read over a dozen among the various series.

What are you reading now? Do you have a TT to share with us? Please leave a comment with your link on MizB’s Teaser Tuesday post or below. If you don’t have a blog, you can share your Teaser here in the comment section instead.

    I got hooked on Connelly after I saw the movie version of The Lincoln Lawyer and decided to try some of his books. Now I am reading in sequence and will be sorry when I finish. Can Connelly write fast enough in the future to provide me with a book a month? Doubtful.

    • LOL, probably not. How far are you? I’m anxious to get to the first book with both Mickey and Harry.

        Reading in publication order I finished The Overlook. Then I realized that I had skipped Crime Beat, which is non fiction and earlier, so I interrupted the series to read Crime Beat. It appears that next up now is Nine Dragons (2009, with Micky Haller). I read one every other month, so it so I may catch up with Connelly’s current production in 2016.

      • Looks like you are about three ahead of me, Nancy. I remember your mention of Crime Beat. I will probably skip it and just stick with the fiction. One every other month is a pretty good rate. I know I can’t read any series too close together. I seem to burn out on it if I do.

    I’m not up to date on Michael Connelly books either. There are so many of them. I remember this one though, I loved it.

  5. I haven’t read anything by this author in a while…in fact, I’m not sure I ever have! LOL

    But I see his books everywhere, and loved the movie of The Lincoln Lawyer…so I’m adding this one to the list. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

    Madame Vauquer,

    I saw the film first and then read the book. I think they made some major changes in the film, which didn’t make sense to me.

  7. I read this one a long time ago…well before the movie came out. I don’t remember a whole lot about it, but I do remember I liked it a lot! Hope you will, too!

    I haven’t read either series, but I also like the cross over of characters.

  10. Crossovers are such fun! These aren’t like some of the ones in fan fiction though, they make perfect sense as they’re all characters in current day L.A.


  11. I’ve never read any of Connolly’s books but having read such good things about him I aim to try one next year. Great teaser! Thanks for visiting my TT https://cleopatralovesbooks.wordpress.com/2014/12/02/teaser-tuesday-december-2/

    I didn’t know The Lincoln Lawyer was adapted from a book! Definitely taking a closer look at it. Thanks for sharing and stopping by!

    I remember reading one of his books I just don’t remember which one. I do know I liked the book but never followed up by reading any others.

  17. I saw the movie but haven’t read the book. It sounds like a good one.

    • Thanks for coming by and commenting, Sandra. I’ll be on the lookout for the movie. Mickey is quite the card.

      I especially like the sound of yours this week since if features a couple of middle-aged women instead of ‘youngsters’. Anyway, the title makes me hungry, lol.

    I’m another who’s never tried one. Sometimes when an author has so many books I find it a bit intimidating to jump in because there’s so much backstory, but I keep hearing good things about Connelly…

    I read the book after I watched the movie and then watched the movie again. I’ve been reading this authors books for many years and get so excited when he releases a new one. I have all but a couple in hardbacks and will eventually have all of his books. I reread them now and then:)

    • Interesting, Laura. I’m going to watch for the movie. You probably know this, but just in case, Connelly is working on getting some Bosch stuff made. I’m not sure, but I think it might be for on-line viewing, like Netflix or something.

      Thanks for coming by to comment and leaving your link.

    Michael Conelly sounds familiar, but I can’t remember if I’ve read any of his books >< It looks really good though!

    I read this one a couple years ago and enjoyed it. Despite not having seen the movie, I had Matthew M’s voice in my head the entire time — based on that alone he seems a good choice to portray Mickey. Mine: The Heart of Christmas
