The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly



The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly

I've just recently started reading books by Connelly, the first one being The Lincoln Lawyer, and I must admit, I'm hooked! Personally, the field of law really does interest me and that little bit of crime added into story line gives the novel a great kick!

I feel honored to follow the intelligent criminal defense lawyer, Mickey Haller, as he lives his life immersed in his job. He endures many struggles, such as losing a close friend, however this loss winds up with him inheriting the biggest case of his life which will earn him enough money to live comfortably. However, Haller is constantly watching his back because the person who killed his friend may be after him. This novel is written so well that you really cannot put it down for a moment.

Along the way Mickey meets an investigator who is on the search for the killer. These two independent men suddenly find that their paths are crossing and they may need to start working together if they want to solve the murder as well as find out the truth behind the biggest case of Haller's life. 

This novel has tons of twists and turns and is very unpredictable which makes it so much better than the average crime novel. I highly recommend reading this book on a gloomy, rainy day to make the most out of it! Please comment what you thought of the book!

  1. I listened to the abridged audio version of this book in January of this year and really liked it. I like Michael Connelly's writing, but haven't read many of his novels yet.

    Have watched 'Bosch' the tv series on Amazon inspired by Michael Connelly's novels? I've enjoyed the series.

    2. I love audiobooks!! I became addicted to them in the past 4-5 years and become a lazy reader the past couple of years as I prefer audiobooks to reading books these days as it allows me to do other things.

      The only downfall with audiobooks for me is if the narrator is bad or the audio production quality isn't good. Otherwise I love them and prefer the unabridged versions.

    3. You know what?! The thought of being able to do other things while "reading" is so intriguing! I might just have to try an audiobook soon!

    2. Speaking of James Lee Burke, his audiobooks are narrated by actor, Will Patton and Will Patton does an amazing job narrating his novels.
