Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real Gripper One of the best Connelly has written. The courtroom drama is superb and will keep you reading well into the night. This one is difficult to guess who is the real culpirt. I did not like the relationship between Bosch and Haller that Connelly created in the last two pages, however I still gave him five stars. Go for it!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Usual From Connelly Nothing surprising here, except maybe a view of Bosch from another perspective. Mickey Haller is a promising but largely unremarkable character, at least as developed in this book. The same goes for Cisco, Lorna and the rest of his supporting cast. Predictably, Connelly has written a forgettable page turner. Superficial fun while it lasts, but with no staying power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Haller and Bosch...together! Mickey Haller first appeared in Connelly's 2005 novel The Lincoln Lawyer. I had followed the Harry Bosch detective series ( 13 up to now ) since 1993 and wasn't too sure about a 'new' character, but was happily proven wrong. Haller is back in The Brass Verdict. The best part? Harry Bosch is featured as well! Defense lawyer Mickey Haller inherits a dead colleague's law practice and with it what could be his biggest case ever. His client, Walter Elliot, wants the case to proceed quickly, so Haller is playing catchup. But is his client holding something back? The dead colleague, Jerry Vincent, was murdered and Detective Harry Bosch is on the case. Can Vincent's murder and Elliot's case be tied together? Haller and Bosch may have to put their heads together for this one. The ending was fantastic setting up what I hope will be many more books where both characters are featured. Connelly's writing skillfully captures both courtroom and police investigation scenes and dialogue. The legal aspect is never dry and the investigation side always keeps you guessing. His characters are believable and human. The personal lives and relationships of the main and supporting characters greatly enhance the whole storyline. It was interesting to see Harry Bosch through Haller's eyes. It was a bit of a different Bosch than I have become accustomed to. But that too is part of Connelly's skill - keeping us on our toes and never, never letting us become bored of his writing! I always anticipate starting a new book by one of my favourite authors and try to stretch it out and 'make it last'. But yet again it didn't work - I burned through this new release in just over a day. Sigh.....another year till the next one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of THE best! This has to be by far one of Connellys best! He knows Harry Bosch and Micheal Haller better than I think he knows himself. This novel get me thinking and on guard from the very first page to the very last. What is next to come I can only imagine!!!

Editorial Reviews

"The Brass Verdict has the sneaky metabolism of any Connelly book. It starts slowly, moves calmly, hides pertinent bits of information in plain sight and then abruptly ratchets up its energy for the denouement....In the midst of this new story, Mickey rebounds with a vengeance....Like Harry Bosch''s mojo, Mickey Haller''s is liable to work well for a long time."
