    1. Michael Connelly has in his 2008 novel The Brass Verdict the opportunity to bring two of his most compelling characters together into one plot and he rises to the occasion, delivering a solid and very entertaining crime mystery.Connelly s benchmark detective Harry Bosch is joined by his motion picture legal thriller protagonist Mickey Haller in a suspenseful thriller sure to please fans.Everybody lies.This is the universal truth that Haller sets out as the book begins and this theme of deception [...]


    2. I am reading my way steadily through the Harry Bosch series and decided I would include this book which crosses over with the Mickey Haller series.I am not usually a fan of court cases but this one was pretty good and, of course, it helped that Harry Bosch was around to provide extra interest Mickey Haller is an okay character but not quite up to Harry s standard Having said that however Haller does very well in the court room He is cunning and very smart and knows all the psychological aspects [...]


    3. A very entertaining read The breezy, cynical voice of Michael Connelly s lawyer Mickey Haller produces something much different and much lighter in tone than the Harry Bosch books, but it is something just as exciting and engrossing There s a bonus here as well Bosh appears as a minor, but important character.


    4. Connelly does it again I love it when he brings his characters together this one has a bunch of them Primarily, this is a Mickey Haller story 14 The Lincoln Lawyer is told by him, but Harry Bosch is a major character Jack McEvoy 05 The Poet makes several appearances There is a reference to Cassie Black 09 Void Moon Mickey Haller s father that was fantastic The interplay between Haller Bosch was great since they re a bit at odds it had my sympathies volleying between them like an Olympic ping pon [...]


    5. It s been two years since Mickey was injured and a lot has happened After taking time off to get his life in order, he s suddenly handed a full practice load following the murder of another defense attorney whose clients he inherits Included is a high profile murder case involving a Hollywood studio head who is accused of murdering his wife and her lover, and it comes with some pretty impressive fees And for the first time, Mickey and Harry Bosch cross paths as he s the lead detective assigned t [...]


    6. This is the 4th mystery thriller I have started in the last several days It is the only one I will finish The others, all by authors well known who I will not name, were a mishmash of confusing scenes, unnecessary filler the price of having to produce a book every year , and reader unfriendly prose Connelly, who crafts just as complicated a plot, does so without confusion and without extra stuff He is a pleasure to read.The rest was as good as the beginning It is interesting to see how Connelly [...]


    7. Wow what a great follow up to The Lincoln Lawyer This book does not have sequel disease thank goodness, it was gripping from beginning to end.It s been a couple years since the events in The Lincoln Lawyer and Mickey Haller has been retired from law for a year After being shot in the last book his recovery caused him to become addicted to pain pills which led to him almost losing everything When he s called into a judge s chambers and told that he has inherited a dead lawyer s practice, just lik [...]


    8. Do you remember the Lincoln Lawyer Not Matthew McConaughey, but the original Mickey Haller created by Michael Connelly He s back after some time off for bad behavior Harry Bosch is around as well, but in this novel he is definitely second fiddle and it would severely challenge Titus Welliver to play him with nuance Where is this all going Haller is handed some cases when his friend is murdered Has Mickey climbed back on the wagon sufficiently to represent a rich client in L.A s murder of the dec [...]


    9. Lawyer Mickey Haller is back and this time he gets to share the spotlight with Connolly s L.A Detective Harry Bosch.It s been over a year since the events of The Lincoln Lawyer and Haller is looking to get back into the world of lawyering He gets to do so in a big way, when a fellow lawyer is killed and leaves his practice to Haller At stake are 30 or so cases, including a big one where a Hollywood movie mogul is accused of killing his wife and her lover Circumstantial evidence and a killer no p [...]


    10. Another winner from Michael Connelly I always have to ration myself when I get one of his new books so I don t go through it too fast and then have to wait forever for the next one I think I managed to make this one last a whole five days This one is fun because it brings Harry Bosch our old fave and Mickey Haller from The Lincoln Lawyer together in the same book Mickey is the main character and narrator in the story, but Bosch appears at all the right moments with his cleverness and well earned [...]


    11. mp3 workaday The truth is short, a lie long Probably just me but after 2 hours I still have no interest at all goes like that sometimes doesn t it ETA having trawled back through, it seems that I mark courtroom dramas rather low, so it s probably a genre I should steer clear of.


    12. Connelly has some of the best quotes in his books There is nothing you can do about the past except keep it there A quote from Mickey Haller when discussing his prior addiction to OxyContin.This was a fantastic read Mickey Haller is taking a break from the law After being injured, and becoming addicted to pain pills, he is planning on getting back into his practice gradually When one of his colleagues, Jerry Vincent, is murdered, Haller has suddenly found himself back in the game With 31 clients [...]


    13. Attorney Mickey Haller is just getting back to work when a judge calls him for a meeting She informs him that his friend, Defense Attorney Jerry Vincent, was found murdered Mickey has just inherited all of Vincent s active cases, including the high profile defense of Hollywood Producer Walter Elliot, who is accused of murdering his wife and her lover Mickey sees this murder case as a case that could make him a household name Detective Harry Bosch contacts Mickey to talk about Vincent s cases He [...]


    14. I was strolling around a book store looking for new books to read and I came across a table full of half priced best sellers And guess what From the original price of Php649.00, The Brass Verdict was only sold for Php100.00 only I, of course, didn t let go of the chance That moment was one of the precious moments of my life and yes, I m over reacting haha The Brass Verdict is the 19th novel by American author Michael Connelly This is the first time I tried out a different Detective Crime fiction [...]


    15. The Brass Verdict was released in 2008, but I only recently got around to reading The Lincoln Lawyer Series This is the second book in the series and while I think it s a good read, the story didn t captivate me as much as the first book s action packed plot.We come to find Mickey Haller acclimating back into his role as lawyer after a protracted struggle with alcohol and drug addiction, followed by a lengthy stay in rehab As he tries to decide if he even wants to practice law any, a colleague i [...]


    16. Michael Connelly has done it again The Brass Verdict is a very good read by putting Harry Bosch with Mickey Haller creates a good mix was a real page turner very exciting from start to finish as usual never picked the ending


    17. Not keen at all on Haller He has so little integrity Bosch, however, is a man on a mission of truth and justice, a super man.


    18. I have read all four Mickey Haller books, and while I think this is my least favorite, Michael Connelly is still my guilty pleasure author of choice, and even a disappointing Mickey Haller book is still one that I want to read.On its own, there s nothing all that special about this book There s a mystery when someone murders one of Haller s former professional acquaintances friends is a little too strong a word these are lawyers, after all , and Haller inherits the dead man s caseload, including [...]


    19. I love Harry Bosch, and I hated how he was portrayed in this book He was a side character in this one, so I didn t expect to like it as well, but I kept getting bored Kind of meh, but I love Connelly, so I ll give it a pass.Lori AndersonLori Anderson The Store Lori Anderson The Blog Twitter


    20. Number two in the Mike Haller series In this book author Michael Connelly proves that he has on his finger tips than just Harry Bosch Whist Harry is an integral part in this book he does take a back seat to Mike.This is a tight courtroom drama with a diverse cast of characters After the murder of a colleague Mike is handed the deceased s entire office case load At first he can t believe his luck because one of the cases is a high profile case with lots of money attached But this case proves to [...]


    21. Two haiku review Lawyer gets murderedMickey inherits casesIncluding big oneMickey s very realFaults, failings and doubts like usExcellent story


    22. Although I m a great fan of Michael Connelly, The Brass Verdict sat on my to read shelf for over a year before I got around to reading it Intrigued with the deep, ongoing characterization of Harry Bosch, I wasn t sure I wanted to get into a book in which he had to share the stage with Mickey Haller, another main character This despite the fact that I read and loved the original Mickey Haller book,Lincoln Lawyer Call me a purist So finally, on a recent snowy evening, having rejected every other u [...]


    23. Michael Connelly s one of the best writing detective fiction west coast parley these days Someone donated a copy of his The Brass Verdict to the Carrollton, Miss library recently, and I snapped it up to read Very good job, with the expected MC twist good connecting the half brothers, Bosch and Haller


    24. Another legal thriller ,with Mickey Haller, the same main character as the Lincoln lawyer, facing similar etiquette questions Could he compromise the client lawyer protection to help find the killer of a fellow lawyer Could he compromise it in order to prevent another murder And what if the murder is his own Another easy page turner , a dip into the world of the defense lawyers A world where justice is not the question or the answer.A world where your biggest achievements may cause you the most [...]


    25. This is a Michael Haller Micky book, the lawyer featured in The Lincoln Lawyer In this book Connelly brings Haller together with Homicide Inspector Bosch Haller has spent the last year getting his life together, before that, his life both personal and professional had gone down the tubes when his addiction to pain pills brought him to the brink of destruction One year later, still unsure as to whether or not he is ready to get back into the law, Haller inherits the legal practice of a murdered l [...]


    26. I have been listening to this in my car the last couple of weeks, and I think that perhaps the reader s presentation added to my dislike of Mickey Haller he gave him the voice of a pedantic old gasbag , but there was still plenty to dislike about him without help Mickey is a criminal defense attorny, seemingly a pretty talented one He several times points out that the system only works when the opposing sides vigorously present their cases I totally agree, but then Mickey does all sorts of thing [...]


    27. Well, this was an interesting book, a good read and held my interest from the first I must say I wasn t as taken with it as with the first, but it s still good and I ve got the next waiting though I might try another Connelly character first as I have a Hatty Bosch novel waiting to.Here some time has passed since the last book and Connelly used what I d call a plot device to reset Michael s character to a bad place He was injured as the last book ended Here we find that he went back to work too [...]


    28. I didn t like this one as much as The Lincoln Lawyer I think the main reason for that is the intrusion of Harry Bosch I haven t read the Bosch books and I think Connelly rather assumes that you have Plus, Mickey cuts Bosch a lot of slack in ways I found kind of out of character or, at least, out of keeping with his normal relations with people on the other side Bosch is a real jerkwad with Mickey and I kept wanting him to just go away.That said, the story was interesting with lots of juicy twist [...]


    29. The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly.Hollywood lawyer and a colleague of Mickey Haller s is murdered Mickey has been away from the courtroom for two years but now finds that he has inherited Jerry Vincent s biggest case load.Walter Elliot is a Hollywood director and big wig in his own mind Walter is accused of murdering his wife and her lover Now it s up to Mickey to take over where Jerry left off.I have been a big Harry Bosch fan for quite some time and my review may have been influenced by th [...]


    30. This is 2 in the Mickey Haller Series I was very surprised by this book from page 1 until the end Things just were not what they seemed in any regard I loved this about the book I also like the fact that Mickey always takes the information and thinks on it before making any decisions Sometimes he will need to get insight and other times, he acts but it is always after thought and usually when he is by himself There were several things I didn t see coming at the end and to me that makes this boo [...]
