Summary

When Mickey Haller is invited by the Los Angeles County District Attorney to prosecute a case for him, he knows something strange is going on.
Mickey's a defense lawyer, one of the best in the business, and to switch sides like this would be akin to asking a fox to guard the hen-house. But the high-profile case of Jason Jessup, a convicted child-killer who spent almost 25 years on death row before DNA evidence freed him, is an intriguing one - particularly since the DA's determination to re-charge and re-try him for the same crime, seems doomed to failure.
Eager for the publicity and drawn to the challenge, Mickey takes the case, with Detective Harry Bosch on board as his lead investigator.

Courtroom drama and detective story

Two characters Michael Connelly's developed over several titles - Mickey Haller and Harry Bosch - both sign up for what seems like an impossible prosecution. A courtroom drama and a detective story unfold, with both players living up to their illustrious pasts. As a Bosch fan, I was pleased to see old Harry back and the whole thing unfolded in a gripping way that had me on the edge of my seat. Every spare moment, I was sticking my earbuds in and catching up on the next steps in the tale. There wasn't any great last minute revelation or theatrical finale to build up to like a crescendo, but it didn't feel any less enthralling despite that. A great listen.

From a Connelly lover

This is as always a great listen. If you liked The Lincoln lawyer, you will like this one. But you must also love/like very, very detailed court room dramas. Event hough Bosh is a big part of the story, it is a bit slow at times.

Good book. Occasional first person narrator confusion.

Another good Haller and Bosch amalgamation. Really good idea for Haller to cross over to the prosecution side. Only very slight criticism I had, and possibly due to the fact I tend to listen when walking my dog Bruno, is that occasionally the first person narrator became Bosch and because their personal curcumstances were simlar, ie single parent, daughters etc, it wasn’t always clear if Bosch or Haller. I prefer one story teller talking in third person regarding other characters.

But enjoyed the book.
