The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly & a giveaway

October 15, 2008

The Brass Verdict
Web site for Michael Connelly
Little, Brown and Company; October ’08
432 pages
Suspense, mystery
Book provided by Hachette Book Group USA

Mr. Connelly is one of my favorite authors. Yes, I know, I have a lot of them but then I read a lot of books. I loved every minute of The Brass Verdict start to finish. I demolished it over a 2 day period reading whenever I had a few spare moments of time. If you enjoy good legal thrillers with a twist read this one.

If anyone out there in the States or Canada would like my copy leave a comment. It’s a brand new hardcover. I’ll take comments through next Tuesday and select a name next Wednesday.

Don’t be thrown because there isn’t any sort of ‘formal’ book review here. This blog serves mainly as my personal reading journal tracking my life in books so I’m going to start posting every book I read good, bad or indifferent. Sometimes I don’t feel inclined to write a review especially with my favorite authors. I may just jot a sentence or two. I love ’em no matter what and eagerly await the next book even though I’ve just finished the current one. It is what is and so be it.

    I am so tempted, but my TBR pile is big, so I’m going to leave this for someone else.

    I would love to try it! I haven’t read a good mystery in a long time so this would be a prefect opportunity.

    Oh, I too love Michael Connelly!!! I think I have read all of his exept “The Brass Verdict”. Did you know that he used to be the crime reporter for a newspaper and that is how he got his writing start…..that is also where he gets a lot of his ideas from.
    I’d love to take care of your gently read copy!!
    Thank you,

    This sounds like another good Connelly book. I am also a big fan. I really like the way you are writing your blog. I have considered doing mine the same way. Just writing what I feel like about the books I read. I would still review them in a manner but it would depend on what I felt like saying. Good for you! It makes it more enjoyable for you to write your own blog.

    I would also liked to be entered. Thanks for the offer!

    And another Connelly Fan reports in. I’ve been a fan since his first book all those years ago. Harry Bosch is one of my favorite characters: “Everyone counts, or nobody counts!” I’d love to be the lucky winner of your copy of The Brass Verdict.

    I really like a chance to win but unfortunately, I am in Singapore. No publishers seem to like to ship over here. 😦

    *The Brass Verdict* was the first Michael Connelly book I read (way back in June, I think, as an ARC). Loved it! I’ll be looking for more of the Harry Bosch stories when I need a fast-paced mystery.

    I’ve read every one of his novels and love them all.
