I loved it, but then I love all his books. I loved the way he brought both Bosch and Haller together so well.

Connelly continues to treat his readers to great stories. I read it in 3 days. A must read for mystery fans.

Another excellent book by Michael Connelly. This one if full of twists and turns, keeps you reading FAST! I enjoy how the court room portion is not too technical or long and the ending, although not what I wanted appeared somewhat more realistic than some authors nice little unrealistic endings.

Another excellent read that leaves you wanting to read the whole book in one sitting so as not to miss anything.

This fine novel by Michael Connelly brings together half-brothers Mickey Haller and Harry Bosch on the same side of the case. The LA District Attorney convinces Mickey to move to the prosecution side as a special prosecutor in a 24+ year-old case. The California Supreme Court has reversed the 24 year-old decision; instead of dropping the conviction (for time served), LA decides to retry it.

Haller decides to go over to the dark side in the second trial of Jason Jessup partly because he can name his own team. He decides on his former wife, Maggie McPherson (a deputy district attorney), as second chair and Harry Bosch, as their investigator.

Jason Jessup has been busy in prison those 24 years, trying to get someone to listen to his cries of innocence through his motions and appeals. Jessup was convicted of abducting and strangling a 12 year-old girl, Melissa Landy. Finally, Jessup gets the interest of the Genetic Justice Project, a group of lawyers (who run DNA tests and find that there is no trace of Jessup on the girls dress --DNA evidence predates this case).

The characters are well-drawn, the dialogue is on-target and the mystery is suspenseful. The story was so compelling that I couldnt put it down. This is an exceptional, tension-filled story.

Michael Connelly can write an extremely good book! Sometimes an author can make a courtroom scene so boring and so long you just have to skip most of it, but Connelly hit this one right and you just want to keep reading because it gets better and better

This book was soooooooo good - one of those "still sitting in the garage listening after you get home" kind! The kind where your husband comes out to ask if you're coming in anytime soon! Rare!

In 1986, Twelve year old Melissa Landy was snatched from her front yard and later found dead. Jason Jessup was convicted of her murder. Now 24 years later, DNA from a semen stain on the little girl's dress points to Melissa's stepfather. Jessup's conviction was overturned and a new trial is ordered. Defense Attorney Mickey Haller is asked to cross the aisle and work for the prosecution on this case. He chooses his ex-wife, Maggie McPherson, to be second chair, and his half-brother, Harry Bosch, to be the lead investigator. When Jessup is released pending trial, Bosch makes sure there are eyes on him 24/7. Mickey and his team work to make sure Jessup doesn't get a chance to kill another innocent child.

This is an excellent addition to both the Harry Bosch series and the Mickey Haller series. The story is told by both men in alternating chapters. The story pulled me in quickly. I had a hard time putting this one down. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Defense attorney Mickey Haller is approached by the district attorney and asked to work a case on their side, going after a previously-convicted child killer who has been released due to new DNA results. Even with misgivings, Mickey jumps on board, provided his ex-wife, Maggie McPherson, sits as his second chair. Mickey is still his bad-ass-attorney/detective self, but I was actually a little disappointed with this book from Michael Connelly this time. Detective Bosch works to help Mickey Haller and I did enjoy his portions in the book and while it did have a surprise ending, I felt it left the reader hanging, which of course could have been the author's intent, or it could have been the way this copy was abridged, then again, it could have just been the way the story was written. All-in-all, it was a good story, just not quite up to Connelly's previous excellence.

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.

As with any Connelly novel, I was immediately sucked into the story and finished it pretty quickly. Harry Bosch takes a secondary role in this one, but I enjoyed thoroughly. Loved it and highly recommend.

It was another of Michael Connelly thrillers, I had a hard time setting it down. It is full of intrigue that holds your attention to the end.
