I picked this one up thinking it was a Bosch thriller but it's not. Nice surprise though, as I had no idea Connelly had a different series to Bosch's. And even a better surprise to see that despite being about a different main character Bosch does have an appearance or two so that the two series are connected.
I enjoyed the several mysteries in the plot and I could barely put the book down to go to bed. It really had me hooked! The characters were likeable and although I didn't identify with any of them (the whole point of treading a thriller, as I see it) I'll make sure to check more books with Mickey Haller and his crew.
Another thing I liked is that, unlike other thrillers (it's James Patterson's I've got in mind) this is not a gruesome thriller. Fast-paced? Yes. Interesting? Yes. Intriguing? Yes. But no bloody descriptions of disgusting crime scenes.
All in all a very entertaining book!...Continua

Il primo libro di M. Connelly che ho letto e non mi è dispiaciuto.
Il finale a scatole cinesi è la parte che mi ha convinto meno ma ci può stare... Una lettura leggera e senza troppi pensieri
Los Angeles was the kind of place where everyboday was from somewhere else and nobady really dropped anchor.
It was a transient place.People drawn by the dream,people running from the nightmare.Twelve million people and all of them ready to make a break for it if necessary.
Figuratively,Literally,metaphoricallly-any way you want to look at it-everybody in L.A. keep a bag packed.Just in case.(The Brass Verdict-Michael Connelly p.74)
