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.

    "Not really a Harry Bosch Book"

    As with just about all Micheal Connelly books, I really enjoyed it. But it is really more of a Mickey Haller book then a Harry Bosch book.
    The plot really moves along, switching from 1st person Mickey Haller to 3rd person for other sections. As with many Micheal Connelly books, characters from his other novels make appearances.
    Peter Giles did a good job with the narration but for the Bosch, I prefer Len Cariou.

    "Great Audio Book"

    I am a long time fan of Michael Connelly and this was my favorite book. Combining Harry Bosh and Mickey Holler was masterful. Had me riveted to each chapter. I highly recommend this audio book.

    "Good listen..."

    I've read or listened to all of Michael Connelly's books. I liked the interaction between Haller and Bosch and I liked having both a crimminal investigation and a courtroom procedural narrative in one book. The characters where well developed and the story was very interesting. I agree with some of the other reviews in that the end was a bit flat as if the author just ran out of steam or was nearing a deadline. I did like the open ending however. Sometimes it's too easy to have all of the storylines neatly wrapped up and I enjoyed the ambiguity of the ending. All in all a good listen that kept me interested throughout!

    "A masterful storyteller"

    Mike Connelly is a genius.
    Very few people can tell such a compelling story in so few words.
    Savor his wry sense of humor and ear for dialogue (best line=''if you like your killers happy go lucky'').
    He captures the pomposity of the elected Los Angeles DA, the fear of a traumatized eyewitness, the righteous anger of detective Harry Bosch, the challenge of raising a teen.
    Without any labored flourishes, he brings these people to life.
    Mike, keep em coming = Tracey Kaplan

    As a person with dyslexia, audio books give me the opportunity to "read" wonderful books that I would otherwise miss. Thank you for this fabulous service.

    "I felt a little cheated (SPOILER ALERT)"

    I have enjoyed the previous Mickey Haller books very much. That was the reason I wanted to read this one ASAP. It is the usual quality writing that I associate with Michael Connelly. And since The Brass Verdict, I have known that Mickey and Harry Bosch were going to have more than a casual acquaintanceship. (I had heard Connelly speak at Bouchercon, 2009. He said that Harry ages chronologically and that he (Connelly) was going to have to decide where to go with Bosch due to his age.) Pairing Mickey and Harry seems like a very logical move. I looked forward to the development of their relationship.

    This book needed a little more Harry Bosch and a little more interaction between the two men.

    Now for the SPOILER ALERT:

    When I got to the end, part of the mystery was resolved, but they were tearing off in search of more information about related cases. I felt a little hoodwinked. I have read all three of the Steig Larssen books and wondered if the "serial" mystery is the new trend?

    This was a well-written book, as is the norm for Michael Connelly, but I felt unsatisfied by the ending.

    "Best Connelly Yet -"

    It is simply the best Connelly yet - it is well written, a tight story, and leaves you wanting more.

    "Bosch done in by narrator"

    The narrator made Bosch sound stupid and every moment sound dramatically forced, as if read by a middle school drama student.

    "Brothers"

    Loved the book. After the wild ride of 9 Dragons, I needed to settle down.
    I like the way the story was told from both Harry's and Mikey's point of view.

    Lou Cariou did not narrate this one, and that was the only setback for me (-one Star). I like it when a story is told by the same narrator especially if they are good.
