The Brass Verdict – Michael Connelly

Misled by the reference in the blurb to Detective Bosch, I’ve instead ended up encountering The Lincoln Lawyer, who I’d been studiously avoiding on John Grisham (and work) grounds. Mitch Haller and his team are more interesting than I’d allowed for, but The Brass Verdict remains a legal story rather than a police procedural; and Bosch a more interesting character than Haller. I’ve started so I’ll finish, but I’ll not be going back for more.

Now finished, by way of another (cf The Secret Scripture) incredible (not in a good way) coincidence-heavy subplot ending.
