The Law of Innocence (2020)

Defense attorney Mickey Haller is pulled over by police, who find the body of a client in the trunk of his Lincoln. Haller is charged with murder and can’t make the exorbitant $5 million bail slapped on him by a vindictive judge.

Mickey elects to defend himself and must strategize and build his defense from his jail cell in the Twin Towers Correctional Center in downtown Los Angeles, all the while looking over his shoulder–as an officer of the court he is an instant target.

Mickey knows he’s been framed. Now, with the help of his trusted team, including Harry Bosch, he has to figure out who has plotted to destroy his life and why. Then he has to go before a judge and jury and prove his innocence.


“Connelly treats readers to a deliciously suspenseful, twisting, unputdownable thriller that begs to be read in a single sitting.”

—The Real Book Spy

“grabs you on the very first page and doesn’t let go until the final, last-minute, twist. Bravo maestro!”
