Excellent novel, lots of twists and turns, interesting characters
on 18 July 2017
I thought this book was great! I have read a few Michael Connelly novels and found some much better than others. Previously 'The Lincoln Lawyer' was my favourite, but 'The Brass Verdict' is equally enjoyable; it definitely kept me guessing with plenty of twists and turns.
I find the defence attorney, Mickey Haller, a likeable, human and fascinating character, Harry Bosch is harder to get to know but we see some interesting sides to him in this novel. It's a good idea to have Haller and Bosch appearing in the same novel and interacting with one another.
It was an interesting start to the novel, with the reader being taken right back to a courtroom in 1992, the early days of Mickey's career, and the opening line hooked me straight away, 'Everybody lies'.
I definitely recommend this novel if you like a good courtroom drama and enjoy pondering did he / didn't he do it!
