    "Another Great Connelly Book"

    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....

    "Wonderful!"

    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.

    "Harry Bosch hand grenade"

    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.

    "Great story, but not a lot on Bosch"

    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.

    "Top-notch book -- poor choice for narrator"

    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.

    "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>"
