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.

I've read and listened to books by this author. My previous experiences with Connelly's books was good. The Brass Verdict was even better, but for the narrator. He was disastrous. Just as quickly as I was drawn into the storyline, I was yanked out by the horrendous reality of a pitiful narrator. He would be great in a reading of the character Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, but that is about the height of his range as a narrator. This story was so good, which is why I'm so disappointed in this narration.
I kind of stumbled on Michael Connelly by accident. I picked up a book thinking it was another author and went to bed. I got all comfortable and to my surprise I had the wrong book. I had picked up "City of Bones"....I loved the book and immediately the next day went to the library and took all the Michael Connelly books I could...
Anyway....I've read tham all and this (Brass Verdict ) is right up there. This is also my first Connelly audio book. I loved the Lincoln Lawyer and loved the Brass Verdict. I hope Michael Connelly never stops writing this series....
Another great Michael Connelly book. Every Harry Bosch book I've read has been a revelation. The reader was perfectly suited to the material. I was sorry when the book was finished.
I either do read the summaries or forget them for my favorite authors, so after getting started on this book, I thought Harry Bosch wasn't going to be in the book. Little did I know he would join in (book is told from the lawyer's point of view) and really shake things up...
Another AWESOME novel. Highly recommended.
I was not sure if I would enjoy this one because I am used to a another narrator with Connelly's "Bosch" books This is another great story by Connelly, if not a little predictable. I enjoyed another book based on Micky Haller. Although there was a lot of court room talk I was never bored and looked forward to learning more. If there was one thing I didn't like about the book was that Bosch (one of my favorite characters of all the books I've read) was limited to a very small part of the story.
This is one of Michael Connelly's better books - I love the Mickey Holler series - but it surprises me that such a high-powered author would wind up with an inexperienced narrator who, while his voice is not unpleasant - cannot pronounce the words "deputy" (he says "deppity") and "eschew" ("askew"), as well as many others. I've heard worse, for sure, but rarely reading a brand-new best seller.
