TITLE: THE BRASS VERDICT
AUTHOR: MICHAEL CONNELLY
Details: no. 14 Harry Bosch, no. 2 Mickey Haller
Mickey Haller has just started thinking about going back to work as a defence lawyer when a colleague of his is murdered, naming Mickey as his professional successor. The detective investigating the murder is Harry Bosch.
One of the cases Mickey inherits is a huge one. A Hollywood mogul has been accused of murdering his wife and her lover, and a successful defense would mean good money and good publicity for Haller. And it soon appears that the case is very winnable, for several reasons.
But the fact remains that Haller's predecessor was murdered while preparing for this case, and taking on the defence may well put Haller in mortal danger.
This was a good thriller, even though I'm not usually a fan of legal thrillers, and I would have liked to see more of Harry Bosch.
