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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[Connelly] can illustrate the basics of criminal investigation better than most. And he makes suspenseful use of simple but diabolical complications for the prosecution.”

    New York Times

  • “Peter Giles’...best character portrayals are Bosch, whose almost-tired Clint Eastwood-like voice is consistent throughout, and ‘Clever’ Clive Royce, the defense attorney, whose British accent never wavers. Connelly’s procedural has enough details for listeners to understand the legal process and enough action to keep the plot moving.”


  • “Connelly may be our most versatile crime writer...[he] bobs and weaves around all our expectations. There is suspense, of course, and there are plenty of surprises, both in the courtroom and outside of it...Reading this book is like watching a master craftsman, slowly and carefully, brick by brick, build something that holds together exquisitely, form and function in perfect alignment.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Defense attorney Mickey Haller teams up with Harry Bosch to tackle an almost twenty-five-year-old case in Connelly’s latest page-turner...Alternating between Haller’s first-person narration and the third-person narrative following Bosch, Connelly weaves a tale that solidifies his reputation as the master of the modern crime thriller. His latest constantly surprises and has keen character insight.”

    Library Journal

  • “The author has Haller narrating his chapters, while the Bosch-centered sections are told in the third person. For the former, Peter Giles has developed a breezy, fast-paced vocal approach, while the detective’s process is presented in a tougher, no frills manner. Additional characters are provided their own unique voices...The production [is] highly entertaining.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • A 2011 International Thriller Writers Award Nominee for Best Hardcover Novel
  • A 2010 Library Journal Best Book for Mystery/Thrillers

    " The Reversal was very will written and engaging, but what else would you expect from Michael Connelly. Looking forward to reading the next book where this one leaves off. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Kurt | 5/19/2011

    " I really like Bosch and Haller together. 1st and 3rd person voices in the same book don't always work but Connelly does it really well. Good story, well told. "

    " I usually love Michael Connelly, but this one didn't quite do it for me. I'm guessing the next installment will answer some unresolved questions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ashley | 5/12/2011

    " I love good lawyer books. This has the added bonus of being told also by a cop. I have read almost all of Michael Connelly's books and I love Mickey Haller and Henry Boch, so bringing them together for another book, gold for me! "
