I am constantly impressed with Michael Connelly’s legal thrillers. Ah, if only all lawyers were like Mickey Haller in “The Reversal.” Determined to fight the good fight, Mickey teams up with his prosecutor ex-wife to ensure a convicted child molester stays behind bars. Connelly writes with legal precision that only comes from being a lawyer himself. The courtroom scenes are surprisingly accurate, and enhanced with just the right amount of flair to create a captivating dramatic tale. There isn’t any other way to say it: Connelly has mastered the legal thriller genre.
I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to continue reading the series. Anyone who misses the quality of books Grisham used to write would be more than satisfied with Connelly’s entertaining plots and solid writing.
