Item description for INOCENTE, EL by Michael Conelly...
El abogado defensor Michael Haller siempre ha credo que sabra reconocer a un cliente inocente. Pero la defensa de Louis Roulet, un rico heredero detenido por el intento de asesinato de una prostituta, da un giro a la trayectoria del abogado. Por una parte, supone defender a alguien presuntamente inocente; por otra, implica unos ingresos desacostumbrados. Poco a poco, y gracias a la ayuda de Raul Levin (investigador con el que colabora habitualmente), Haller descubre cabos sueltos en el caso Roulet. Ningn cliente asusta ms que un hombre inocente , J. Michael Haller, abogado penalista. From Publishers Weekly Starred Review. Veteran bestseller Connelly enters the crowded legal thriller field with flash and panache. Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller regularly represents lowlifes, but he's no slickster trolling for loopholes in the ethics laws. He's haunted by how he mishandled the case of (probably innocent) Jesus Menendez, and, though twice divorced, he's on good terms with his ex-wives; one of them manages his office, and the other, an ambitious assistant DA, occasionally tumbles back into bed with him. When Mickey signs on to defend young real estate agent Louis Roulet against charges of assault, he can't help seeing dollar signs: Roulet's imperious mother will spend any amount to prove her beloved son's innocence. But probing the details of the case, Mickey and private investigator Raul Levin dig up a far darker picture of Roulet's personality and his past. Levin's murder and a new connection to the Menendez case make Mickey wonder if he's in over his head, and his defense of Roulet becomes a question of morality as well as a test of his own survival. After Connelly spends the book's first half involving the reader in Mickey's complex world, he thrusts his hero in the middle of two high-stakes duels, against the state and his own client, for heart-stopping twists and topflight storytelling.
