Publisher's 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.

Harry Bosch is back

At his searing clever best, the laconic details oriented bad cop is back and I didn’t want the book to end.

This is my favourite Michael Connelly so far!!

I loved the pace of this book. I couldn't wait to listen to more. The use of the music to add suspense was a little annoying and not necessary.
