The Brass Verdict Synopsis

When down-at-heel lawyer Mickey Haller gets the news that his old colleague Jerry Vincent has died, he also gets an unexpected windfall.


Jerry had left instructions that Mickey should inherit all of his clients - putting Mickey's stalled career back on track at a stroke.

Not only that, but Vincent was about to go to bat for Walter Elliot, the Hollywood mogul accused of brutally slaying his wife and her lover, in a trial that promises big fees and an even bigger place in the media spotlight. If Mickey could find the magic bullet and win that one against the odds, he'd really be back in the big leagues.

The only problem is that Vincent was murdered, shot at close range in his office garage, and the detective handling the case - a certain Harry Bosch - is convinced the killer must be one of Vincent's clients. Suddenly Jerry Vincent's legacy is beginning to look more like a poisoned chalice, and Mickey is faced with the biggest challenge of his career: how to successfully defend a client who might just be planning to murder him.

 

The Brass Verdict Press Reviews

'a superb legal thriller that manages three final twists ...The labyrinthine workings of LA law, bribery and the machinations of the FBI all play a part in a scenario that soon has Mickey in fear of his life. The first line of The Brass Verdict is 'everybody lies', so there are plenty of surprises. And, of course, as a writer of fiction, Connelly proves to be a brilliant liar.' Mark Sanderson, 
EVENING STANDARD
 
"Michael Brandon gives a terrific reading." DAILY EXPRESS
 
'the real thrill of this compulsive procedural will be seeing the author's two greatest characters united for the first time' TIMES
 
'While the themes of Connelly's LA crime novels are familiar (power, envy, corruption), his plotting is anything but.' ESQUIRE
