Giveaway: The Lincoln Lawyer Movie -- Books and Posters

Summary:  This #1 bestselling legal thriller from Michael Connelly is a stunning display of novelistic mastery - as human, as gripping, and as whiplash-surprising as any novel yet from the writer Publishers Weekly has called "today's Dostoevsky of crime literature."

Mickey Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense attorney who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, traveling between the far-flung courthouses of Los Angeles to defend clients of every kind. Bikers, con artists, drunk drivers, drug dealers - they're all on Mickey Haller's client list. For him, the law is rarely about guilt or innocence, it's about negotiation and manipulation. Sometimes it's even about justice.

A Beverly Hills playboy arrested for attacking a woman he picked up in a bar chooses Haller to defend him, and Mickey has his first high-paying client in years. It is a defense attorney's dream, what they call a franchise case. And as the evidence stacks up, Haller comes to believe this may be the easiest case of his career. Then someone close to him is murdered and Haller discovers that his search for innocence has brought him face-to-face with evil as pure as a flame. To escape without being burned, he must deploy every tactic, feint, and instinct in his arsenal - this time to save his own life. -- Grand Central Publishing

It's not everyday that I get this excited about an upcoming movie, but I can barely wait for March 18th when The Lincoln Lawyer will be released! First of all, the movie is based on one of my all-time favorite books THE LINCOLN LAWYER by one of my all-time favorite authors Michael Connelly.

And if that's not enough, the movie stars Matthew McConaughey as Mickey Haller (oh my!) as well as Ryan Phillippe, Marisa Tomei, William H. Macy, Josh Lucas, John Leguizamo and more. Is that a great cast or what?

Check out the movie trailer (and get a sneak peek at Matthew McConaughey) here or read an excerpt from this fantastic book here. You can also Like the movie on The Lincoln Lawyer Movie Facebook page.
