The Reversal

By Michael Connelly (Electronic Book, 2010)
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.

  • PRAISE FOR NINE DRAGONS:

    "Nine Dragons ignites Bosch's personal and professional lives, bringing them together in an explosive manner....Harry's feverish race against the clock and the international dateline...plunges the reader into a firestorm of danger and tragedy....To say that Nine Dragons is coiled tight with suspense understates Connelly's accomplishment in portraying Bosch at the cusp of a new world." (Los Angeles Times).

  • "A Michael Connelly novel is a thing of cool beauty, meticulously plotted, rigorously controlled." (Chicago Tribune).

  • "Bosch is back...A complex and meticulously crafted tale...packed with jump and juice....High-voltage stuff." (Oregonian).

  • "Harry Bosch is back, tackling one of his fastest-paced cases....Connelly is in top form...[and] the story unfolds with exquisite procedural details; unexpected violence; and increased insight into the stoic, jazz-loving, relentless, flawed detective who bears the burden of every case." (Columbus Dispatch).
