Summary

When down-at-heel lawyer Mickey Haller gets the news that his old colleague Jerry Vincent has died, he also gets an unexpected windfall. Jerry had left instructions that Mickey should inherit all of his clients - putting Mickey's stalled career back on track at a stroke.

Not only that, but Vincent was about to go to bat for Walter Elliot, the Hollywood mogul accused of brutally slaying his wife and her lover, in a trial that promises big fees and an even bigger place in the media spotlight. If Mickey could find the magic bullet and win that one against the odds, he'd really be back in the big leagues.

The only problem is that Vincent was murdered, shot at close range in his office garage, and the detective handling the case - a certain Harry Bosch - is convinced the killer must be one of Vincent's clients. Suddenly Jerry Vincent's legacy is beginning to look more like a poisoned chalice, and Mickey is faced with the biggest challenge of his career: how to successfully defend a client who might just be planning to murder him.

the Brass Verdict

Fantastic like all Michael Connelly's books.
Used to read harbacks and found audio books which I listen to on my way to work. So much easier to take in

Ah Connelly is a winner. A ripping read!

What did you love best about The Brass Verdict?

It's was riveting, touching, aweful and compelling. Well researched and a great read. It just ended somewhat abruptly with what I felt were a few loose ends. Highly recommended.

What about Michael Brandon’s performance did you like?

Had to giggle at his feminine voices. But great reader.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The pain that Bosch felt when he first came out of the "death house" having viewed all the trophies.
