The Lincoln Lawyer is an upcoming Legal Drama TV Show. Based on a book by American author Michael Connelly. The show follows the life of Mickey Haller. He is a Los Angeles Defense Attorney. An interesting thing to note is that rather than having an office, he gets driven around town by a Chauffeur.
There is also a movie with the same name. Whether it is Canon or not is still unknown. The TV Show consists of 10 episodes of 60 minutes each. And the show has a decent rating but we are going to have to wait a couple of days to get any conclusive rating.
Full Disclosure, this summary is based on the book and some aspects of the show might be different as Netflix is known to use its creative license extensively. After the events of the previous novel, Mickey Haller is fighting his addiction to Painkillers. He is called back into action when one of his old attorney friends gets murdered. Haller is now in charge of the dead colleague’s cases.
It is a High-Profile case. One that is against the Hollywood Mogul Walter Elliot. He is a suspect in murdering his wife and Lover. Then we are introduced to Harry Bosch. Bosch is an LAPD Detective and is investigating Vincent’s murder (The Dead Attorney). Bosch warns Haller the killer might target Him next but he brushes it off.
As the story progresses, we get to know that Elliot did kill his wife and lover. And is left puzzled. Later Bosch’s suspicions became true as someone tried to murder Haller by throwing him off a precipice. As luck would have it Bosch kept an eye on him and was able to capture the murderer. Haller pieces together who the actual culprit is and confronts them.
They were Under arrest by the FBI. But all is not right just yet. It is revealed that Elliot and his secretary have now been murdered. Haller thought it was the same culprit as before but he is mistaken. It was Elliot’s Wife’s Lover’s family who had done the deed.
Another interesting thing to note is that Haller and Bosch are half-siblings. Haller figures it out after seeing a picture of Bosch’s father. And the resemblance is uncanny. However, Bosch is not aware of it.
