On November 7th, 2023, Harry Bosch and Mickey Haller are back in Resurrection Walk, the highly-anticipated new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly.
Bosh, one of the genre’s most recognized characters, first debuted in Connelly’s 1992 novel The Black Echo. Since then, the LAPD detective turned Private Investigator has gone on to star in 24 novels to date. Lately, though, as Bosch has gotten older, Connelly has had his beloved protagonist co-star along other characters, the most recent being Renée Ballard.
Ballard, like Bosch, is an LAPD detective driven by the pursuit of truth and justice, who shares the “everyone counts or nobody counts” mindset that Harry lives by. First introduced in The Late Show (2017), Ballard has become another hit character for Connelly to work with, and she’s partnered with Harry several times in recent books. However, this time around, it appears that Bosch will share screen time with his half-brother, famous defense attorney—and the Lincoln Lawyer himself—Mickey Haller.
Haller, who starred in the bestselling 2005 novel The Lincoln Lawyer, has anchored six titles to date, including The Law of Innocent (2020), while making numerous appearances in other Bosch-starring books. The character was first portrayed on the big screen by Oscar-award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey back in 2011. Last year, Netflix launched a new series starring Heller on their platform (similar to the Titus Wellivur-starring Bosch drama on Amazon), starring Manuel García-Rulfo Lapuente as Haller. Like the book and movie before it, the show is also called The Lincoln Lawyer. Season 2 is expected to drop on Netflix later this year.
It’s always a treat when Bosch and Haller team up, and judging by what we know, Connelly’s fans are in for a real treat this time around.
Check out the official plot details below!
Defense attorney Mickey Haller is back, taking the long shot cases, where the chances of winning are one in a million. He agrees to represent a woman in prison for killing her husband, a sheriff’s deputy. Despite her conviction four years earlier, she still maintains her innocence. Haller enlists his half brother, retired LAPD Detective Harry Bosch, as investigator. Reviewing the case, Bosch sees something that doesn’t add up, and a sheriff’s department intent on bringing a quick search for justice in the killing of one of its own.
The path to justice for both the lawyer and his investigator is fraught with danger from those who don’t want the case reopened. And they will stop at nothing to keep the Haller-Bosch dream team from uncovering what the deputy’s killing was really about.
