I just finished reading The Reversal, book #3 in the Lincoln Lawyer series by Michael Connelly. It’s always great to slip back into a familiar series and see old friends like Mickey Haller and Detective Bosch. Mickey Haller, normally counsel for the defense, crosses the aisle in this case to act as an independent prosecutor against a child killer who was freed after twenty-four years due to DNA evidence.

A great courtroom drama and police procedural wrapped up in one. Get your fix of both. Hang on tight, it’s a wild ride.

It should have made me feel good. It should have made me feel like I was part of something that was noble and right. But all I had was the bad feeling that I had crossed some sort of line within myself. 

Michael Connelly, The Reversal

The stakes have never been higher: when DNA evidence frees a sadistic killer, defense attorney Mickey Haller and LAPD Detective Harry Bosch must put him behind bars before he strikes again.

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.
