A singing telegram from me to michael connelly

A singing telegram from me to michael connelly. Every time I'm disappointed by some other author in the genre, it just makes me appreciate Connelly's skills all the more. He leaves all the others in the dust. I read the last 215 pages of this one all in a night. Stayed up till 2:00 . No one else can make me focus like that. This book is a Mickey Haller/Harry Bosch hybrid.

Justin Jessup was accused and arrested for the murder of a 12 yr old girl in 1986. There was a witness to the abduction, the sister, who also identified him in a lineup.
Move forward a few years, DNA is on the scene. A semen stain on the dress leads to the girl's stepfather and the Supreme Court throws out the conviction, telling the LA courts to retry him. Looks like a slam dunk that he will be acquitted, right?
Mickey Haller is asked to cross the aisle and be the prosecutor for the case. Harry Bosch is his investigator, and his ex-wife is second chair. There is quite a different way of thinking between the prosecutor and defense attorney, but he does his job very well. So well that---surprise!!
There is the possibility that Jessup may have been a serial killer, because at that time, several girls between 12-18 just fell off the face of the earth. Bosch is determined to find out. But something horrific happens after court.

I've been catching up on past Connelly's and was excited to get to this second Lincoln Lawyer book but it was a big disappointment. Too much legal procedure and endless details about things that didn't become important in the story. There was also very little suspense or drama (the big "drama" there was, was totally predictable and at the same time just over the top) and --worst of all -- there were questions left hanging at the end. I don't know if it was a set up book for the next installment and whether those questions will be answered, but rather than intrigue me, it just fatigued me. This book was easy to put down and hard to finish. Sorry to be so negative but this one really felt as if Connelly was on a tight deadline and just threw stuff on the page to get his word count. Can't recommend this one.

I like reading a series of books with one main character. I get to know them. I have therefore read all of Michael Connelly's books centered on the Detective Bosch. Because I finished all of them I tried other authors with less success and then returned to read some of of his other books of Conelly's centering on other characters. I like Bosch the best (when he was active in the police department), the Lawyer Haller was good, and the the reporter was McElroy was also ok. This book however, which is really about the lawyer Haller is the best of all because it engages several of the characters I have come to know. Haller is the focus of the book of course, but Bosch has a major roll and the FBI profiler makes a major contribution. The book was detailed enough in its story that you knew what was happening and it felt possible, it had sufficient character interactions and development to hold interest beyond the story, and the story ended with the unexpected. My favorite of his books so far.

Connelly can do much better. If you’re a Bosch fan there’s too much Haller; if you’re a Haller fan there’s probably too much Bosch. Either way one seems to put a dampener on the other. For me there’s too much time dedicated to courtroom parlance, which always ultimately becomes repetitive and predictable. If the defence is the underdog the prosecution is always eventually verbally outdone, and vice versa if the underdog is the prosecution; and all the while minimal, if any at all, real action takes place.
The ending, too, did little to enhance the read. It was as though the author ran out of room and had to finish where he did while there was so much scope for a more exciting finale.

I have been reading Connelly's Bosch series from beginning to end. I came next to the Reversal, which is primarily a courtroom drama featuring Mickey Haller. But Bosch is the case investigator. So he features prominently in this book. First of all, it's a Michael Connelly novel -- that about says it all. He has a crisp writing style with rich character development and a tight and complicated plot that keeps the reader engaged and guessing to the end. It is so entertaining to read how a legal case is handled, the many manipulations and tactics that have to be employed by both sides. In this novel, that is particularly seen since Haller (a defense attorney) is asked to prosecute this case. So you end up seeing both sides of the case. It also gives the reader a good idea of how cops investigate these cases in preparation for trial. This is a great plot. One that takes a big twist at the end. I highly recommend all Connelly books and especially the Harry Bosch series (though the Haller series is no slouch either). I recommend reading the series in order to get the most from the character development from one story to the next.

Despite the twist in the premise -- Micky Haller as a prosecuting attorney -- and the presence of Harry Bosch as his chosen investigator, I found "The Reversal" to be pretty much predictable. The plot conflicts are anticipated by the premise and that Harry's involvement will complicate things at first and ultimately mightily contribute to their resolution, a given. This is a fun enough read and not painful in any way, but it hardly is gripping and not among Connelly's finer achievements. My greatest takeaway? George Cables had been too long overlooked in my effort to compile a decent jazz library. Thanks for that one, Michael.

This book made me a better lawyer. Both the tactics and the cross examination dialogue are spot on. I caught only one error -- most modern courts have dispensed with the "You can't cross examine your own witness" rule. Also, Royce, the defense attorney, should have figured out how to signal to Roman the the silent witness could not testify, perhaps by loudly demanding her sequestration. Otherwise, the courtroom recreation was brilliant. The twisty ending was fine as well, although I would have liked a little more insight into the defendant. The weakest part of the book was the explanation of how the jury would have come out. A junior's statement to the press is one thing. His actions in the jury room are another. Overall, though, an excellent book. I urge all aspiring and practicing trial lawyers to read it.
