    "I LOVE this book !"

    One of my favorite books of all time is Michael Connelly's "The Lincoln Lawyer." I was thrilled when this sequel came out ! I think I liked "The Lincoln Lawyer" just a LITTLE bit better but I still loved this book.
    The characters are wonderful and well developed- the story is enthralling- the narrator is terrific. I like all of Michael Connelly's books but these 2 "Mickey Haller" books are my favorites. If you like lawyer/courtroom/mysteries- with human side and "love" interest too- you will love "The Lincoln Lawyer" and "The Brass Verdict>"

    "Disappointing conclusion and wrap up"

    Nice legal facts, but . . . It wrapped up rather abruptly and with a far fetched plot when you looked back over the story.

    "Good Book - Need a new narrator"

    Enjoyed the book as much as other Harry Bosch novels. But lose the narrator. His delivery is way too young, probably due to the pitch of his voice. Not suitable for hard-boiled crime novels.

    The only character he does well is the "surfer dude". Previous narrators such as Len Cariou and Dick Hill are much more appropriate.

    "More Lincoln Lawyer"

    If you are a fan of this author, you will recognize the Lincoln Lawyer main character. Harry Bosch is in this story but the main character is the lawyer. This is an entertaining murder/mystery story told from the point of the vew of the defense lawyer. There is some detail provided in how defense lawyers prepare their case, chose jurors and chose when and how to present evidence. The story gets a bit confusing at the end where the relationship between the lawyer and Harry Bosch is exposed but doesn't seem to do anything with it. If you are a Michael Connelly fan, you will will no doubt like this book.

    "Michael Connelly's best book yet"

    I wanted to go back to page 1 and start again. The author puts on a clinic for trial lawyers and combines 2 favorite characters for a stunning conclusion.

    "Legal Knowledge"

    I'm thinking of taking the bar! I learned several legal terms and was actually able to converse intelligently with a lawyer about the terms. He says no bar test yet but keep listening. I couldn't wait to hear the next CD. If you want to kick back, relax, and enjoy a book, this one is for you.

    "Better than Lincoln Lawyer"

    Though I didn't care much for Lincoln Lawyer, a book about the same character, I enjoyed this book. It moved faster and kept me interested. I was pleased that Mickey Haller and Harry Bosch finally discussed how they were related.
