THE BRASS VERDICT
Connelly essentially tells readers everything that will happen in this book with the title and the first line. But you'll want to find out that "everything" for yourself. Add in two of his most complex characters, Bosch and Haller, who are more closely connected than one of them realizes, and you'll want to dive quickly into this whirlwind of a ride. With his 20th book, Connelly has never been better!
Mickey and Bosch don't exactly hit it off, but Bosch will do what it takes to find a killer -- even if it means using Mickey in a game he doesn't even realize he's playing until it's almost too late. Then Bosch and Mickey realize the only way to catch the killer is to work together as a team. (LITTLE, BROWN, Oct., 400 pp., $26.99)
