GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: The Reversal by Michael Connelly (audio book)

Description

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. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

You can't go wrong with a Michael Connelly book.  The Reversal revisits attorney Mickey Haller and creates a great mystery-thriller that will be sure to keep you up late at night.  I almost cheated and went to pick up the book instead of the audio version because I wanted to read it faster than the narrator could speak.  Connelly really nails Los Angeles and the star witness is a spectacular character.  This is a story that will keep you guessing and wanting more.
