This was a very good book and Connelly did a great job bringing Mickey and Harry together. I'm not sure how much I like Mick working for the prosecution though. What makes Mickey so interesting is his struggle between doing what's morally right and winning a case. Since he's working for the prosecutor we don't see that in this one. Also, in the books with Mick and Harry together, Connelly kind of makes Bosch out to be a crusty old badger and Harry wasn't that way in the Harry Bosch titles. With all of that said, still a very good book.
Narrator Peter Giles was excellent as well. He really does a good job and sounds what I think Mickey Haller would sound like. I don understand the knock on Giles. Some say bring back Dick Hill or Len Cariou but those 2 guys did Bosch. You can't have those guys doing Mickey Haller.
Michael Connelly always does an excellent job. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it didn't have quite the "zing". I guess I'm not thrilled with how he puts the two brothers together. Seems like they need to be separate to develop the suspense.??
I could go 3-1/2 on this one, but it's closer to a 4. I???ve become a fan of both Bosch and Haller and think Connelly does a good job of bringing the two together in this book. Good plot and continuing character development for both Harry and Mickey. Like some of the other reviews thought the ending was a bit flat considering all the work that was done to build the case on both sides of the courtroom. Maybe an easy way out? I can still recommend this one though and if you're reading them all, this one fits in nicely. Don't skip it.
This was a damn good book. I really like Connelly. Definitely wasn't my favorite of all time, but it was a very good listen.
This book was very good i have now listened to all the mickey haller books from connelly and after this one i am going to start on the harry bosch series. i listened to one of the bosch books so far but am going to go back to the beggining and listen in order. Micheal connely is fast becoming my favorite author i highly recomend this book and the other three haller novels.
I really enjoyed the suspense and fast pace of this book. But I was dissapointed that the book left you hanging at the end and looking for closure.
I'm brand new to Michael Connelly. 2 weeks ago I listened to The Lincoln Lawyer, and tomorrow I start The Fifth Witness. I am now completley obsessed. The Reversal is 100% worth the 20 bucks. All the Mickey Haller books are fantastic. I can't speak for all the Harry Bosch reads because I haven't gotten to any of them yet (I will). But trust me on this, you won't regret listening to any of these books.
