Publisher's Summary

Longtime defense attorney Mickey Haller is recruited to change stripes and prosecute the high-profile retrial of a brutal child murder. After 24 years in prison, convicted killer Jason Jessup has been exonerated by new DNA evidence. Haller is convinced Jessup is guilty, and he takes the case on the condition that he gets to choose his investigator, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch.

Together, Bosch and Haller set off on a case fraught with political and personal danger. Opposing them is Jessup, now out on bail, a defense attorney who excels at manipulating the media, and a runaway eyewitness reluctant to testify after so many years.

With the odds and the evidence against them, Bosch and Haller must nail a sadistic killer once and for all. If Bosch is sure of anything, it is that Jason Jessup plans to kill again.

Impressed? Ace detective Harry Bosch is also on the case in other exciting Michael Connelly crime-fiction novels.

    "Quite suspenseful"

    I really enjoyed this book. I always enjoy Bosch but liked the combo of him with his brother.

    "Not my favorite Connelly book - but OK"

    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.

    "Damn Good"

    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.

    "great book"

    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.

    "Twist"

    Interesting characters (as always) in a different role. I always look forward to Harry Bosch's next growth spurt.

    "Great Book, Great Narrator, Missing Ending"

    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.

    "Obsessed!"

    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.

    "What the heck?"

    I am normally a fan of the Harry Bosch series but I decided to give the combination of Harry with Mickey Haller a try. The book had all the makings for a great story but then fell completely flat. I suppose Connelly is trying to sell more books so he leaves the ending hanging and boring. Whatever. I was dissappointed in the whole thing. It makes me hesistant to try any more.

    "Disappointed"

    I was disappointed. I found myself not wanting to continue. I think it was because I listened to this right after I finished listening to John Grisham's "The Confession". However, I like the other Harry Bosch titles by Connelly.

    "Good story with surprises"

    Good story with twists and turns and surprises. M Connelly takes you right into these crime investigation & courtroom situations and you feel like you're right there. I thought the ending was...unique, but valid.
