Defense attorney Mickey Haller and Detective Harry Bosch must either work together or die as they investigate a Hollywood lawyer's murder in this "epic page-turner" (Library Journal).   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.

Michael Connelly introduces the meeting of his well known protagonists: detective Harry Bosch and "Lincoln Lawyer" Michael Haller. The plot is rooted more in the legal process and this brings a refreshing change to the detective stories that envelope the Harry Bosch series. Connelly novels had started to become stale in my opinion and I see this effort as a welcome renewal. I recommend that you read this book so that you are properly introduced to the nuances of how Connelly has set up this new literary relationship and especially since the Bosch/Haller interaction should become Connelly's new platform to write his future novels. He has created two independent and strong characters in Bosch and Haller. Now we get a "two for one" experience.

For fans of Michael Connelly, this novel documents the long awaited meeting of half-brothers Mikey Haller and Harry Bosch, lawyer and detective, respectively. With Haller being the narrator, we only get peripheral glimpses of Harry and never get to know much about his approach (or typical internal conflicts) to solving the killing of a private defense attorney until the end of the book. Thus, this is a solid continuation of Connelly's The Lincoln Lawyer, with a cameo by Bosch.

I usually reserve ebooks for driving. As I got into the final chapters, that wasn't enough, and I found myself sitting at home listening to the last hours. It was a page-turner I couldn't leave alone.

Loved the book and the courtroom strategy insights, though some of the legal procedural details were questionable. The narrator did a good job reading but tended to speak as if he was a tough street cop, spitting out sarcastic tough-guy comments, even when the narration didn't call for that tone. It was kind of distracting.

A fun read that keeps your interest but doesn't require a lot of thought.

Some of the best writing and realistic characters since John Grisham. I've seen one movie made from the books, "The Lincoln Lawyer". Narration is also quite good...intoxicating. Make more Haller movies, PLEASE!! 5 stars, all around.

Not my favorite Michael Connelly. Needs better narration.

Already a Harry Bosch fan, mixing Bosch and Haller was a real treat. Haller is a great character and fills the reader in with detail along with action and suspense. It's one I did not want to put down. He's the kind of attorney you want on your side -- guilty or not. He knows the angles and roots out the most interesting details others overlook.

Anyone who has read the Lincoln Lawyer, should read the Brass Verdict. It is exciting and has many unexpected turns. In my opinion, this is an excellent book.

Another great book from Michael Connely. Not my favorite one from him but still very good read.

Love this series, Michael Connelly is very good at creating great crime drama. This is the 2nd book in the series and I'll definitely move on to the others. One thing to note, there is quite a bit of lapsed time for the characters between books. So much happened to the main character, Mickey Haller, between storylines as well as a complete sense of what drives him that you lose any identity you had with him. Still enjoyed the book, but felt like the author didn't know where to go with where he left off, so he went in another direction. Harry Bosch fans will love connecting these two characters!

I really enjoyed this book. I am currently adding a bunch of Michael Connelly books to my list. It was a great mystery, and I loved the Mickey Haller character. I highly recommend.

I enjoyed very much. Peter Giles voice was very easy to listen to. The reader can make or break the book and he is excellent. Very good story, kept me wondering the whole book.
