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.

Michael Connelly is the bestselling author of the Harry Bosch series of novels as well as The Poet, Blood Work, Void Moon, Chasing the Dime, and the #1 New York Times bestsellers The Scarecrow and The Lincoln Lawyer. He is a former newspaper reporter who has won numerous awards for his journalism and his novels. He spends his time in California and Florida .From AudioFile:
Michael Connelly's latest legal thriller brings together his major characters on the same team: Defense attorney Mickey Haller shifts sides and takes on a 24-year-old murder case as a prosecutor. His main assistant is his first ex-wife, Maggie McPherson (known as Maggie "McFierce"), and the investigator is Harry Bosch. Peter Giles's narration is decent for the women and better for the men. His 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. M.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
