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.

    "Mickey+Harry+Maggie+Rachel"

    Compelling Connelly, kept me listening an 1.5 hours past bed time! The climax scene actually felt rushed through a little too quickly thus losing the drama and tension created throughout the rest of the book. Hope there is more Mickey Haller to come.

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the story, but the Reader did not captivate me at all; always seemed to be dragging. I'm not talking about the character he was reading, but he always made his character seem "annoyed and tired", even when the story line didn't call for it. I was just turned off by him. I like "Mickey Haller", just not this one so much :O(

    Maybe


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Reversal?

    Most memorable was the end and the fact that the guy was still out there.

    He gives a good voice to Haller


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Just the ending

    Story
    "Pretty Average"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you're a fan of Bosch or Haller, you'll probably get some satisfaction in the pairing of both for this book, but the story is so lame and the ending is anti-climactic.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I'm not sure what would have made this better - a more complex mystery and court case?


    What three words best describe Peter Giles???s performance?

    Solid, safe, adequate.


    Could you see The Reversal being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not without some serious work on the story.

    "Mickey and Harry...together again!"

    I love the Bosch series and really like the Lincoln Lawyer books focused on Bosch. This is a good combination with an interesting story. I enjoyed the read, it was not "unputdownable" like his previous books. I love this author's style. Will be reading many more of his novels in the future, that's for sure!

    Story
    "Another Connelly Success"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would. Connelly's books are well written and hold together very well with enough twists and turns to keep them sharp and interesting. I love the Harry Bosch character with his flaws and all. I am glad to see a crossover with Michael Halloran too.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Reversal?

    Harry in his most protective mode with his daughter was a bit of humanity not often found in "tough guy" books.


    Which character – as performed by Peter Giles – was your favorite?

    Harry Bosch is always my favorite.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no

    I am a hairstylist that enjoys the outdoors. I love listening to books as I fall asleep. I rode a Harley, Drive na RV, and cut beautiful flowers to put in my home. Give me piece and quiet, Give me friends and fun. I choose to be happy and enjoy life.

    "Another Good Harry Bosch"
    What made the experience of listening to The Reversal the most enjoyable?

    The suspense in this book is just as great as all the other Harry Bosch mysteries.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry Bosch is always mysterious and calculating. You are always waiting for his next move.


    Which character – as performed by Peter Giles – was your favorite?

    always Harry Bosch


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I can not put this book down until I have listened to the whole story. The great thing about this audible I can get my house work done and listen at the same time. I have listened to almost all of the Harry Bosch series. I am never disappointed.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the Harry Bosch!!

    I haven't read the printed version so I don't know.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The totality and the characters. I found it very believable -- as a lawyer.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm late to the Connelly books and so glad that he's written so many and with different main characters. Lots of excellent reading to look forward to.

    "Truly enjoyed listening"
    What made the experience of listening to The Reversal the most enjoyable?

    My husband and I said it was like the days before television, when people sat around the radio, listening to programs together.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Michael Connely always has twists and turns in his plots. Just as you think you know what is going to happen, Connely throws a curve ball.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Harry finding the hiding place under the Santa Monica pier.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The testimony of Sara Gleason was moving. I sympathisized with her.
