Join us for an exciting evening with author and executive producer Michael Connelly as he sits down with author and journalist Douglas Preston to discuss his latest novel in the Lincoln Lawyer series, The Law of Innocence.

For the first time since The Gods of Guilt, defense attorney Mickey Haller is in his element in the courtroom in Michael Connelly’s The Law of Innocence. But this time, the underdog client Mickey must defend is himself. Yes, the Lincoln Lawyer has been charged with murder after police find the body of a former client in his trunk. Unable to make his exorbitant bail, Haller must build his own defense from behind bars.

The Lincoln Lawyer is one of the most popular legal thriller series ever written, selling millions of copies and garnering scores of critical raves. It inspired a film starring Matthew McConaughey, and a TV series is in the works. Readers have been eagerly awaiting the next brilliant installment, and with The Law of Innocence Connelly delivers a nail-biting page-turner as Mickey Haller quite literally fights for his life.
