Format: Hardcover
This isn't the first time Connelly has paired Bosch up with the lead from one of his non-Bosch novels. I didn't much care for the results in the past, but here it fails completely. This time it's Bosch together with his half-brother Mickey Haller, who first showed up in Connelly's best book in years, The Lincoln Lawyer. This time also, the pairing is taken a step further, with alternating chapters featuring Haller (in the first person) and Bosch (in the third person).

The premise for the novel is straight-forward: a convicted child killer, in jail for 24 years, wins a new trial because of some DNA evidence. The DA decides to hire an independent prosecutor for the new trial in order to avoid any appearance of official impropriety, and settles on Haller for the job. Haller in turns recruits Bosch as his investigator.

And they're off! Uh...actually, they're not. Because of the format Connelly has chosen, what we get are short vignettes now of Haller, now of Bosch, with neither allowed to stretch out and run. Furthermore, these two have emerged as Connelly's two best characters and here it feels like they're both being short-changed. The main victim is Haller, who we've come to know as sly, devious, unsentimental, but also charming and resourceful - all in all, a great character. In The Reversal, however, he's operating out of an office instead of his town car, he's on the side of the angels instead of running his own ethically-challenged show...it feels like Connelly has taken paint thinner to his own guy.

And finally, no spoilers here but the ending is a mess.

THE COURTROOM DRAMA THIS BOOK IS GREAT. CONNELLY BUILDS UP A LOT OF SUSPENSE, AND YOU WANT TO SEE ALL THE LOOSE ENDS COME TOGETHER, THE DENOUMENT IS TERRIBLE AND I FELT I WAS LEFT HANGING . FOR THAT REASON I DON'T RECOMMEND THIS BOOK, BECAUSE I AM SURE YOU WILL FEEL DISSAPOINTED AS I WAS. HOWEVER, I WILL READ ANOTHER CONNELLY BOOK AS THE REST ARE ALL GREAT.

You're reading and the elements are all lining up for what you're sure will be a clever twist and suspenseful conclusion, but the story just falls apart. It's as though he was laying the foundation and just didn't know where to take it, and then decide to just wrap it up and be done with it. Very disappointing conclusion with story elements that just dead-end.

The Lincoln Lawyer is my favorite character of Connelly.
He delivers the goods every time.
Always looking forward for his new adventures.

I enjoyed this book because the writer understands so well how a lawyer thinks and the plot had a solid base in reality. I was a trial lawyer and have been a judge for over 20 years. The author is not afraid to take the reader through a fictional trial or to take on a retrial of someone perhaps wrongly convicted at a time when we are conditioned to expect innocence and produce a story which held me to the last page. And this time the accused ended up being far from a paragon log innocence. I will read another Lincoln lawyer story for sure.

A criminal case in reverse, the murder and guilty party are known, Mickey is hired to act as an a Independent Counsel for the State to retry a 24 year old case recently overturned. Haller takes his ex Maggie and Bosch on his team and away they go, with only 60 days. Mickey's chapters are in first person and Harry's in 3rd person. Taken In alternate chapters Mickey comes off as an insensitive jerk at times and prone to too quick decisions. Bosch is dogged and determined, gradually the case evolves into a current event. The two half brothers aren't the best of chums, but eventually work together. The reader will likely make a choice as to which Connelly creation is best..

The audio version by Peter Giles was good, the narration was steady and he put some good voice to each of the characters, particularly the English ex pat Clive and the judge.

Wow - what a gripping novel. It was so real that I felt I was living the adventure right from the beginning to the gripping last page. It almost made me wish I'd become a lawyer - and that's saying a lot. I was sad to finish ... even the second time.

Kept you coming back for more. The story line was very interesting and kept you wondering what was next. A typical Michael Connelly novel. Terrific
