5.0 out of 5 stars Mickeyand Harry - something of a dream team, 31 Jan. 2009
This review is from: The Brass Verdict (Paperback)
Michael Connelly has created some of the most engaging characters in detective/legal fiction and his Bosch series has consistently been well above the general mass of the genre. He has also written several one-off novels, and the last of these, The Lincoln Lawyer" featured Mickey Haller, a defence lawyer with some very "interesting" approaches to his role in the legal system.

Well, Mickey is back, as I hoped he would be, because he had the promise that his character would stand the kind of development that was given to Harry Bosch. Connelly doesn't disappoint, as we learn more and more about Haller, how he came to be a lawyer and what drives him. I have a feeling this points the way towards another long running series, and the addition of Bosch provides some fascinating possibilities.

I can't really say too much about the storyline, because I don't want to give anything away for those that haven't read it - the only thing to keep in mind is the basic premise of the tale - everybody lies. Suffice to say that this well up to Connelly's high standards. There are the usual twists, turns and misdirections, with nothing quite as it seems until the final curtain, and that shocking ending. Once you have started it, I doubt you will want to put it down until it's finished.

As to whether you can enjoy this if you haven't read the previous books, difficult to say because I have - so try to read at least "The Lincoln Lawyer" and "The Last Coyote" first so you can enjoy this to the full - you won't regret it

This review is showing when I view "The Drop" and worse than that, the line saying it is from "The Brass Verdict" is not there - so purchasers could read the review and end up buying a different book!
