Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Bestseller Connelly delivers one of his most intricate plots to date in his 20th book, a beautifully executed crime thriller. When L.A. lawyer Mickey Haller, last seen in The Lincoln Lawyer (2005), inherits the practice and caseload of a fellow defense attorney, Jerry Vincent, who's been murdered, the high-profile double-homicide case against famed Hollywood producer Walter Elliot, accused of shooting his wife and her alleged lover, takes top priority. As Haller scrambles to build a defense, he butts heads with LAPD Det. Harry Bosch, the stalwart hero of Connelly's long-running series (The Black Echo, etc.), who's working Vincent's murder. When Haller realizes that the Elliot affair is bigger than simply a jealous husband killing his cheating wife, he and Bosch grudgingly agree to work together to solve what could be the biggest case in both their careers. Bosch might have met his match in the wily Haller, and readers will delight in their sparring. 10-city author tour. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

Graham Greene liked to distinguish between his serious novels and those he called his "entertainments," though given the complexity of the man and his work it wasn't always easy for readers to draw the distinction. Probably Michael Connelly would be the last to compare himself with Greene, but he, too, writes at differing levels of seriousness. If at first encounter he seems primarily an exceptionally... Washington Post Book Review (read the entire Washington Post review)

Review:

"Connelly is justly celebrated for his characters and his ability to create mood from the sights and sounds of L.A., but he's also a terrific plotter, and that skill is in high relief here. Essential for fans; a great read for anybody." Booklist (Starred Review)

Review:

"The Brass Verdict has the sneaky metabolism of any Connelly book....Like Harry Bosch's mojo, Mickey Haller's is liable to work well for a long time." Janet Maslin, New York Times

Review:

"Connelly is firing on all cylinders in this epic page-turner. The intriguing story line, the chance to view Bosch from another perspective, and Haller's reappearance as a main character add up to a fantastic read. One of the best thrillers of the year..." Library Journal (Starred Review)

Review:

"Connelly builds to some breathtaking twists before all comes to a close. And a more perfect end to the maze he has drawn is difficult to imagine." Denver Post

Review:

"The answer to every Connelly fan's dream....Even if the case is less than baffling, Connelly brings his two sleuths together in a way that honors them both." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Connelly's skills at melding plot, character and scenery into a cohesive unit shine in this book. The Brass Verdict is gold." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Review:

"Haller is a mixture of light and dark, a flesh-and-blood guy who, as with Harry Bosch, we'll look forward to meeting again." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Connelly writes detective and legal thrillers that elevate the genre with authentic characters, realistic dialogue and knowing details." Oregonian

Synopsis:

Lincoln lawyer Mickey Haller and LAPD detective Harry Bosch are two loners who realize their only choice is to team up to find a killer, in this latest New York Times bestseller by Connelly. Available in a tall Premium Edition.
