The Reversal by Michael Connelly Book Summary


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 twenty-four 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.

The Reversal (Michael Connelly) Book Reviews

EndingInteresting characters, good plot, moves along nicely, keeps your interest. However, it ends a bit abruptly and leaves a lot of unanswered questions. What happened to Sarah? What was Jesse’s motive? Was he a serial killer? Were there other bodies? Etc..Score: 3/5

The Reversal fails to impressThis is a disappointing effort after so many great novels. The conclusion is weak and obvious and the whole novel doesn't offer the usual pace Connelly excels at. Maybe time to retire the Lincoln Lawyer....Score: 3/5

The ReversalMichael Connelly is excellent as always. He is by far the most entertaining detective crime novelist of our time. I love that Harry Bosch is back here, I miss his presence having read all of his books in sequential order..Score: 5/5

No reversal of qualityThis was classic Connelly and it doesn't get any better than that when it comes to crime fiction. Other authors in the genre start going downhill with repeated books with the same lead character, but that hasn't happened with Connelly and Harry Bosch. If anything, his later Bosch is even better than his earlier..Score: 5/5

Great readThis is the first Michael Connelly book I've read - but it won't be the last! I have been a Prosecutor for over 20 years and have tried many Jury Trials. Connelly nailed it here!.Score: 5/5

Brothers unitedBosch and Haller together are less exciting than either one of them apart. Connelly has been setting us up for this union of try two half-brothers for some time, but whatever tension or drama might come from putting them together at last goes unexploited. Bosch is his usual tough- minded detective pulling rabbits out of the hat for Haller; Haller is his usual quick-witted trial attorney dodging and weaving his way to verdict. The fact that he's recruited as a special prosecutor and working with his ex-wife Maggie McFierce doubles up on the nepotism but doesn't really add much. To Connelly's credit as a reporter he allows these folks to get their jobs done well, quite independent of the fact that their lives are intertwined. Their children meet up for a homely scene, but whatever twists the family ties might add to the plot never materialize. The story is plotted so that Harry and Mickey trade chapters, a slightly confusing device the start that actually works quite well as tale unfolds. A lot of time is spent developing the case to set up the trial, so the first half of the book drags a little. Once the trial starts the book heats up and Connelly holds your attention. It's a good book, not one of his best and not the place to start unless you've read the earlier ones that give depth to Mickey and Harry..Score: 4/5

Great read until the end!This was a great read until the end. I felt like it just stopped midway through the story without any real conclusion. Can't recommend it for that reason. I've read many other books of his, but this one leaves you wanting more-but not in a good way......Score: 2/5

Nels4After reading many of Michael Connelly books, it was really great the see Haller and Bosch work together....a great book..Score: 5/5

Ending SuckedI really enjoyed this story. I have nothing but superlatives about the story, the characters and the writing style. Then I came to the end. Either Michael Conley doesn't know how to wrap up a story or he's trying to sell another book, but I hated the way he closed the book. I will not read another of his books if this is his style. It's very frustrating to invest time to this read then being dropped! It's like having good sex without a climax!.Score: 3/5

Loved it!I was getting bored with the not so great books available right but this one perked me up. Smoochie Pig gives it a 5!.Score: 5/5
