The Reversal

The Reversal - Michael Connelly Despite my protestations about not having time for another “series” I have found myself picking up the Mickey Haller books in some sort of order. In this installment, for a case that was first tried 24 years ago, we see Mickey going over to the “dark side” of the courtroom as a prosecutor rather than the attorney for the defense.

The appeal of these books have for me are the characters rather than the plots. When the characters are well written I can give a little leeway for “formula” plots. Although each of these books has a different (and admittedly interesting) storyline the steps followed for getting to the end are pretty much the same. Caring about the characters is what keeps me reading.
