Synopsis of The Brass Verdict
Defence lawyer Mickey Haller has had some problems, but now he’s put all that behind him and is ready to resume his career.
Then another lawyer, Vincent, dies, and Haller gets an unexpected windfall: he inherits all Vincent’s clients, putting his stalled career back on track at a stroke.
Not only that, but Vincent had taken on a high-profile and potentially lucrative murder case.
It’ll be a trial that promises big fees and an even bigger place in the media spotlight – and if Mickey can win against the odds, he’ll really be back in the big leagues.
The only problem is the detective handling the case – a certain Harry Bosch – is convinced the killer must be one of Vincent’s clients. Suddenly Mickey is faced with the biggest challenge of his career: how to defend a client successfully who might just be planning to murder him.

The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly review
Very good, hooks from the beginning. Good judicial plot with an unexpected ending.
The characters are very well profiled almost from the beginning, the development of the plot is agile and without flourishes, there are no superfluous things and you still get a very clear idea of how the trials unfold in the USA.
I recommend it.
