Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The Brass Verdict has the sneaky metabolism of any Connelly book. It starts slowly, moves calmly, hides pertinent bits of information in plain sight, and then abruptly ratchets up its energy for the denouement…In the midst of this new story, Mickey rebounds with a vengeance…Like Harry Bosch’s mojo, Mickey Haller’s is liable to work well for a long time.” New York Times
“If at first encounter Connelly seems primarily an exceptionally accomplished writer of crime novels, at closer examination he is also a mordant and knowing chronicler of the world in which crime takes place, i.e., our world…A terrific ride.” Washington Post
“Connelly once again hits it out of the park in the tightly written, fast-paced, and sharply imagined The Brass Verdict…Connelly builds to some breathtaking twists before all comes to a close. And a more perfect end to the maze he has drawn is difficult to imagine.” Denver Post
“Critics were pleased to see two of Michael Connelly’s protagonists—the relatively new Mickey Haller and world-weary homicide detective Harry Bosch—come together for the first time…Both play against each other nicely as Connelly writes at once a police procedural and a captivating legal thriller. The Washington Post called The Brass Verdict primarily entertainment, with deeper undertones—just right for Connelly fans.” Bookmarks magazine
“Arguably this country’s best crime yarn spinner, Connelly has not only concocted an extremely clever plot for the second novel featuring Lincoln lawyer Mickey Haller, he has included his longtime series hero Harry Bosch as a supporting player in the who- and whydunit.” Publishers Weekly
“A humdinger. The plot brings together the morose detective Harry Bosch and his stepbrother, Mickey Haller…Giles is proficient at marking the differences between these two opposites. He portrays Bosch as a dark, deep-thinking person while his characterization of Haller is glib. Giles’ hoarse, whispery voice crackles when he’s Bosch and is authoritative as Haller. Despite their differences, the story resolves in a way that makes listeners eager for the next installment, especially if it’s performed by Peter Giles.” AudioFile
“This is a fine legal thriller, full of both electric courtroom scenes and fascinating behind-the-scenes stuff about the business of lawyering. Connelly is justly celebrated for his characters and his ability to create mood from the sights and sounds of LA, but he’s also a terrific plotter, and that skill is in high relief here. Essential for fans; a great read for anybody.” Booklist (starred review)
“Connelly is firing on all cylinders in this epic page-turner. The intriguing story line, the chance to view Bosch from another perspective, and Haller’s reappearance as a main character add up to a fantastic read. One of the best thrillers of the year.” Library Journal
“The answer to every Connelly fan’s dream: Hieronymus Bosch meets the Lincoln Lawyer…By turns wary, competitive, complementary, cooperative, and mutually predatory…Connelly brings his two sleuths together in a way that honors them both.” Kirkus Reviews
