Several tables are turned in this new Harry Bosch thriller. A convicted child murderer has just been released after 24 years in prison, but veteran defense attorney Mickey Haller is convinced that he is guilty, DNA evidence notwithstanding. So convinced, in fact, that he joins the prosecution team assigned to retrying the case. He does, however, insist on one condition: He wants to work with LAPD Detective Bosch. With the suspected murderer out on bail and hell-bent on staying free, Bosch and Haller have no time for dawdling. Lives, perhaps their own, are at stake. A taut, plot-driven police thriller.

This is an excellent airplane or beach book. You don't need to be familiar with the characters but for me it was fun to catch up on their lives as I haven't read Connelly for a few years.
Really interesting to see Mickey Haller on the other side of the aisle. And the suspense in this one kept me on the edge of my seat - it was really hard to put this one down.
