The Reversal by Michael Connelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There's so much to love about this book! I love Harry Bosch, always have! And after reading The Lincoln Lawyer, Mickey Haller became another favorite character. And this book has them both.
Mickey takes on a case as an independent prosecutor, ex-wife Maggie assists him, and Bosch is their investigator. The case: A man (Jessup) wins an appeal to overturn a 24 year old murder and he's released from prison. The DA's office decides to retry him. They need a guilty verdict; otherwise, they'll be sued in civil court for millions for his imprisonment. Those stakes are high enough, but added to that is the absolute conviction that they all have that Jessup is truly guilty.
I hope that the release of the movie The Lincoln Lawyer will get more people reading these books. Michael Connelly has been a favorite author of mine for many years - since about the time his 3rd book was published! I have not yet been disappointed with any of his books!
