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.

    "Ok, but not his best."

    Stick with Bosch. It may be that Connelly has gotten bored with him but I haven't and Heller just ain't as good.

    "Good book...Great narrator"

    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.

    "Does not disappoint"

    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.??

    "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.
