Publisher's Summary

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.

A different view

This story is told from the eyes of Mickey Holler, Harry Bosch’s step brother. Together with his wife and his step brother Mickey will work on the prosecutors’ side to convict a child murder who has spent that last 24 years in prison. Most of this book is from inside the court and the trial for this child murder, it was interesting to see another side of the stories, instead of the side from the cops, now you see the side from the lawyers. The ending is not what I expected but it was still very good. I would recommend this book. My favorite character in this book is Mickey Holler’s ex-wife, she is the best at what she does, most of the book is from Mickey’s about her character and how she is in the courts, which makes me like that character even more.
