Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Brass Verdict This book was fun to read but also informative on the ins and outs of the law system. Our hero is engaging and you care what happens to him and his family. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another hit for Connelly Connelly may have just become my favorite writer. Tolkien and Clancy will always have special places in my heart, but Connelly consistently delivers hard hitting crime novels that have any number of believable twists that make you want to go back over what you have just read to see if you could have figured them out before Connelly decides to reveal them to you. I won't give away any of the twists in "The Brass Verdict", but the action follows Mickey Haller (The Lincoln Lawyer) whose inherited caseload puts him at danger of ending up like the lawyer from whom he inherited the cases: dead. Enter Harry Bosch who, as a cop, has little love for a defense attorney like Haller but realizes that he must do what he can to keep Haller alive. Again, I don't want to give anything away other than to say that Haller and Bosch, sometimes friends and sometimes enemies, make a formidable team against a sinister and elusive group of bad guys who will stop at nothing to keep their secrets secret.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than the first! I started reading this series because I loved the movie THE LINCOLN LAWYER. The first book was so well written I picked up this one and was not disappointed at all. I felt there was excellent character development, the plot was very fast paced and kept me guessing from start to finish! a must read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bosch and Haller Yippee! L.A. lawyer Mickey Haller and Harry Bosch have teamed up in this book. Jerry Vincent, a somewhat friend of Haller is murdered and Haller inherits all of his cases. Haller has just returned from rehab. He was injured in The Lincoln Lawyer and became addicted to pain meds. One of his cases is the high profile double murder of Walter Elliot's wife and her lover. Bosch is the cop whose investigates Vincent's murder. Is Vincent's murder connected with Elliot's case? Haller and Bosch seem at odds and do not trust each other. They are however wanting the same results. Connelly has written a clever mystery where the reader sees the case from the court and police view. Of course Haller's conscience kicks in and he wants to give Bosch some answers that as a lawyer he can't give. This is a great mystery with not only good twists and turns but also fantastic character development. I sure hope this is not the last I read of Haller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Winner for Connelly Harry Bosch Series #14 & Mickey Haller Series #2 Bestseller Michael Connelly expertly brought his two best characters together in one of his most intricate and exciting plots to date. L.A. lawyer Mickey Haller who we last seen in “The Lincoln Lawyer”, is now out of rehab, with his addiction behind him he is eager and ready to practice law again. When Jerry Vincent is murdered, he inherits his practice and heavy case load, a load that includes a high-profile double murder. The suspect is the famous studio executive Walter Elliot accused of murdering his wife and her lover. While preparing the mogul’s defence, Haller discovers that knowing the case sensitive information paints a target on his back and this was most likely the motive behind Vincent’s murder. Detective Harry Bosch heightens intrigue into the scenario when he enters as lead investigator. Working on opposite sides of the law both Haller and Bosch join forces in order to uncover the truth…..but everybody lies. Cops lie. Lawyers lie. Witnesses lie. The victims lie and the judge can see right through them….will justice prevail….. The answer is expertly revealed between the pages…. This is one fast paced and engaging crime/courtroom mystery that is difficult to set aside. The plot is cleverly written, with enough twists and surprises to keep ones interest alert. The level of details described as Haller builds his case in search of the “magic bullet” is truly amazing; it adds context and depth to his character. The novel consists mostly of courtroom scenes with dialogue that zips along quite fast and text that masterfully paints a clear picture. Michael Connelly’s has created another winner. I thoroughly enjoyed “The Brass Verdict”.
