9.5 / 10 - John Connolly's Every Dead Thing





Quote:
Winner of the Shamus Award for Best First Novel, 1999

An L.A. Times Book of the Year, 1999

Haunted by the unsolved slayings of his wife and young daughter, and tormented by his sense of guilt, former NYPD detective Charlie Parker is a man consumed by violence, regret and the desire for revenge. But when his ex-partner asks him to track down a missing girl, Parker embarks on an odyssey that is to lead him to the heart of organized crime; to an old black woman who dwells by a Louisiana swamp and hears the voices of the dead; to cellars of torture and murder; and to a serial killer unlike any other, an artist who uses the human body as his canvas and takes faces as his prize, the killer known only as the Traveling Man.

I'm about half way through Michael Connellys new novel, called 'The Reversal'.

It seems so far like one of his best yet...

Nick Cave: The death of Bunny Munro.

I'm halfway through but won't finish it.
He tries too hard to be disturbing.
5,5/10



Anyone know of a descent IMDB-like site for books?

Finally finished To Kill a Mockingbird. Loved it, especially the ending.

I'll be reading either Much Ado About Nothing or The Merchant of Vencie by Skeaspeare next.

That's my next choice after finishing Stieg Larsson's trilogy. Tell me how you liked it.

9 / 10 - Michael Connelly - The Reversal





Quote:
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.


I enjoyed the novel very much. I have always liked the straight forward story telling approach that Connelly always utilizes.

This is not a mystery or thriller by conventional mechanisms but it is splendid as a court room drama. Its a procedural legal tale that goes into the different nuances of preparing for trials and the difficult aspect of our legal system.

Its mainly a Mickey Haller book but it contains a healthy dosage of Harry Bosch. Both characters that I have absolutely loved in previous Connelly novels.

This is a great novel that is definitely worth reading.
