Item Details

Things are finally looking up for defense attorney Mickey Haller. After two years of wrong turns, Haller is back in the courtroom. When Hollywood lawyer Jerry Vincent is murdered, Haller inherits his biggest case yet: the defense of Walter Elliott, a prominent studio executive accused of murdering his wife and her lover. But as Haller prepares for the case that could launch him into the big time, he learns that Vincent's killer may be coming for him next. Enter Harry Bosch. Determined to find Vincent's killer, he is not opposed to using Haller as bait. But as danger mounts and the stakes rise, these two loners realize their only choice is to work together. Bringing together Michael Connelly's two most popular characters, The Brass Verdict is sure to be his biggest book yet.

An enjoyable read with typical Connelly twists. Worth taking the time.

Loved this story. Very hard to put down. Bosch and Mickey are great in this story...as usual!

“...my father telling me that it wasn’t scary. That is was beautiful. He tried to teach me the painter’s name Hieronymous Bosch.”
----------------— Talking about “The Garden of Earthly Delights”, the Lincoln Lawyer tells Det. Harry Bosch on his deck overlooking the LA cityscape, just like Harry’s deck overlooking same, but “on the other side”.----------------—It’s another Lincoln Lawyer book and Harry is in it—Connelly’s 2 heroes. Mostly the Lawyer.-----------Solid book, with a lot about lawyering; admirable stuff, that. Sordid realities.-------–Fun free-wheelin’ law-ing in the LA. Connelly’s one of the best. Not too thrillin’, but definitely absorbing. ---------On my third or so soiree with lucid dreaming I woke up in that painting and it scared me right out of the dream. I had read earlier Bosch books....time to try again (or read my eventually to be written, "Like Snow" graphical novel).

Another winner in the Lincoln Lawyer series! The setup is well crafted and yet again sees Mickey put in an indefensible position. Connelly seems to excel at created truly evil antagonists to face off against his highly complex defense attorney. I love the courtroom scenes in this series; no other author out there imbues them with such twists and outright fun.

I didn't like the previous Connelly book, but gave this one a chance and was rewarded. this is in the Lincoln lawyer series, this time shared with Hieronymous Bosch. Good enough to make me continue reading.

Connelly brings Harry Bosch together with his newer lead character, Mickey Haller. Harry finds out he is more connected to Haller than he realized. These characters are complex, interesting and real, making for another richly textured and plotted great read. Connelly also briliantly evokes the L.A. landscape and atmosphere.

Despite being a semi-ripoff of D.W. Buffa's Star Witness, this book is an entertaining read. Like Buffa, Connelly populates this one with a high-power defense attorney, headstrong movie producer-defendant, dead wife of said producer, Hollywood glitterati and the decadent lifestyle pertaining thereto. Fun stuff.
