   Great sequel to the Lincoln Lawyer
The Mickey Haller series gets better and better with every book I read. I saw the Lincoln - lawyer - film when it came out and thought it was pretty good, but the book was AMAZING!!!! But we all have the first book of a series and slowly it gets boring. Michael Connley does not disappoint with this series. I have all the books and am reading them one after another and they are GREAT SO FAR, but I am sure it will keep getting better, Mr. Connley puts 2 characters in a book, I have seen horrible, but these tried and true characters are perfect for the story. I am now starting the next one!
   An excellent, page turning courtroom “who done it?”
The Lincoln Lawyer '', even better, was the Brass Verdict. I am now completely hooked on the Mickey Haller series. The characters are well developed so that you feel like you know them. The plot while complicated keeps you curious and interested until the final chapter, when things come together. I have enjoyed reading Michael Connelly's novels over the years and discovering John Grisham, Peter Robinson and Peter James gives me another great author to enjoy. Can 't wait to read another.
   Complex Plot and Emotional Conflict
What I like most about Connelly's writing is his ability to create complex plots. It is as if you are walking through a huge mansion, opening doors that reveal new clues. Connelly has a sensitive ways of sharing emotions between his characters that will recognize avid readers. At the end of this book, the detective Bosch and the defense attorney Haller share the fact that they are half brothers. While the plot is complicated, Connelly is at his best when he brings out the intricate emotions of his main characters, Mickey Haller and Harry Bosch. Connelly created these characters as distant half-brothers, which gives him the opportunity to inject deep emotional conflict into his characters. Connelly's main characters have a development that few writers ever achieve. I hope actors and screenwriters can keep Connelly as the writer Mickey Haller and Harry Bosch created in this wonderful novel.
   Halley meet Bosch
As all these series are great! I like the Harry Bosch series and Lincoln Lawyer, so this is a win for me.
   Mickey Haller is Stellar
I have read all the Bosch novels and was at first reluctant to read the ones about a lawyer, but the Brass Verdict was a pleasant surprise and as a bonus, Harry Bosch is a character, and there are cameos by Jack McEvoy. Haller comes across as very bright and very human. At first, surrounded by liars and enemies, he does not seem to understand that his predecessor's fate may mean that he is himself in peril. As he tries to clear the cases he inherited from a murder victim, one can not help a dead beat client get back on his feet. I guessed a villain early in the book, but it was suspenseful to watch Haller grow from an unwilling pawn to a warrior for justice.
   Superb!y plotted
I read Michael Connelly's book when I started following the Bosch series on TV and watched the film The Lincoln Lawyer '' for the second time. Both these series enticed me to start reading the books. What impressed me the most is the intelligent way by which the connection of the main plot and the confluence of the subplots all neatly connected to lead to the final of the story. Unlike reading most books, which usually entails that you can't wait to reach the end. However, reading this book did not help me feel that the end of the book did not matter as much as the journey of reading the book. The details of the book, the explanation, the description of the scenes and many more are the features that have captivated me the most. Now I can 't wait to read more of Connelly's books in this Michael Haller series and as well as the Bosch series, though I completed all 5 seasons of the TV series.
   A semi-ethical lawyer...and a cop who believes in justice, who would have thought?
No spoilers, but I liked the book because this lawyer has a heart and many times is in the right place. The main character, Mickey Haller, has a personality and seems to be REAL. In so many books, there is little character development. The author tells the story, but nothing makes the character human and real. This is a very good yarn with believable, human characters that you begin to like and care about.
   Another great book
Usually, I read books about his detective, Hieronymus Bosch. This book was outstanding about Mickey Haller, the Lincoln lawyer. This sounds interesting, but Mr. Connelly is very adept at keeping it dull and dry. He must do very extensive research because you feel like you are with him in the courtroom. Not real court drama that would allow no silly theatrical court.
   I loved the court drama
I read this only to complete my Harry Bosch read, but it made me resize how much I like the character Mikey Haller. There is minimal Bosch, but it is interesting to see him from another perspective. As for Mickey, he just finished his rehab from the aftermath of the first novel and finds himself inherited 30 cases from a mother lawyer who was assassinated. Haller has to run that gauntlet, figure out if the murderer is after him. now, while dealing with a high profile murder case that Can. Lots of tension plays out as Mikey is hunted and as he works to escape the prosecutor, the judge, the police, the assassin and even his own client.
   Great Conclusion
This story really enjoyed. Mickey's journey through the book is not obvious. You learn things as he does and somewhere in between we learn a little more about ourselves.
