Coming Out Soon: THE REVERSAL by Michael Connelly

I can’t wait for the next Mickey Haller book, The Reversal, coming out in October 2010.  While I like Connelly’s Harry Bosch series, I was blown away by The Lincoln Lawyer, which remains one of the best legal thrillers ever written.  It was nominated for six different awards and won the 2006 Shamus Best P.I. novel and the Macavity award.  Connelly’s second book in the Mickey Haller series, The Brass Verdict, also won the 2009 Anthony Award.  In this next outing, Connelly features both characters as Mickey Haller and Harry Bosch work together to convict a child murderer.

SYNOPSIS:

Longtime defense attorney Mickey Haller is recruited to change sides 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.

The Reversal will be released in hardcover in October 2010 in the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

    If you want to spend the dough Steven Vascik has released the limited editions in two states (and different prices). He has published all three of the Haller books in leather bindings that mimic law books. They are quite nice. These are the true first editions, preceding the Little Brown release in October. They have the September 1, 2010 date on the letterpress limitation/signature page. From your expertise displayed on the page you probably already know this stuff, if so, sorry to take up your time. Nice site though, will bookmark it. Cordially Gerry Storey
    p.s. don’t pass around my email, hate junk email, etc., relying on your discretion (SP?)
