Description

Mickey Haller and Harry Bosch together take on a seemingly unwinnable case in blistering legal thriller from Number One bestseller Michael Connelly.

When defence lawyer Mickey Haller is invited by the Los Angeles County District Attorney to prosecute a case for him, he knows something strange is going on. Mickey's one of the best American legal brains in the business, and to switch sides likes this would be akin to asking a fox to guard the hen-house. But the high-profile case of Jason Jessup, a convicted child killer who spent almost 25 years on death row before DNA evidence freed him, is an intriguing one . . .

Eager for the publicity and drawn to the challenge, Mickey takes the case, with LAPD Detective Harry Bosch on board as his lead investigator. But as a new trial date is set, it starts to look like he's been set up. Mickey and Harry are going to have to dig deep into the past and find the truth about what really happened to the victim all those years ago in this nail-biting courtroom drama.

Review quote

An absolutely fabulous thriller, one of the best I have ever read * TELEGRAPH & ARGUS * Connelly explodes courtroom fireworks. * EVENING TELEGRAPH * Connelly writes in a tough, unsentimental way and creates a stunning tale that doesn't let go until the final page. * CATHOLIC HERALD * The novel has a gripping clarity from the off, and very quickly establishes a gripping momentum. ... it's another expertly handled tale from a born storyteller that blazes into an incendiary denouement * IRISH TIMES * Connelly masterfully manages to marry an absorbing courtroom drama with a tense and exciting thriller of detection * THE TIMES * This novel is further proof that this writer is on a roll. ... Connelly's background as a police reporter gives his books the powerful verisimilitude that few possess and balancing the police and legal shenanigans makes for wonderfully involving reading * THE EXPRESS * This is vastly superior stuff, from America's greatest living crime writer * THE MIRROR * [This] Scott Turow-style court drama, starring both of Connelly's favourite characters, is as exciting as anything this formidable writer has ever produced * DAILY MAIL *
