The Brass Verdict

Michael Connelly
In his latest novel, Connelly joins together for the first time two of his most memorable characters:  Mickey Haller and Hieronymus (Harry) Bosch.  An old rival of Mickey's is murdered and he is appointed by the court to pick-up the deceased lawyer's 30 cases.  One of the cases is  big-time Robert-Blake-O.J.-Simpson-like; a televised courtroom drama starring a Hollywood studio-head-defendant on trial for allegedly shooting his wife and her lover.  If you are an avid Connelly fan you'll enjoy the banter between the boys in this book.  The ending might be the biggest surprise.
