The Brass Verdict

I just finished reading The Brass Verdict. This is one of the Harry Bosch mysteries, but it’s also one of the author’s Mickey Haller novels. The first novel to feature Mick was The Lincoln Lawyer. Mick is a defense attorney who works out of his car, usually a Lincoln. He has just gotten back from a year of rehab after being shot and getting addicted to pain killers. He’s hoping to start his life over, and is surprised to learn that he has inherited several cases from a deceased colleague. His colleague was killed in the parking garage of his office and Harry Bosch is the investigating dectective. Harry is in the story, but the focus is on Mickey. He has to figure out how to best defend his client while trying to protect himself. I enjoyed reading The Lincoln Lawyer and I really enjoyed The Brass Verdict. It’s neat to see the character of Harry in a new light and Mickey’s character is likeable and charming. It’s a lighter read than the Harry Bosch mysteries, so it’s a nice change of pace.
