    Just a quick note to say that I recently read Michael Connelly's THE BRASS VERDICT and think it is terrific.

    Connelly was one of the first hardboiled writers I read. This was many years ago and at the time I wasn't conscientiously reading any particular type of fiction. I just picked up any book I could find, and guys like Connelly, Jame Ellroy, Thomas H. Cook and Richard Price's Clockers helped me gravitate toward others like them.

    Fifteen plus years later I could conceivably take Connelly for granted except he was such a kind and generous participant on RA a few months back that I wanted to reread my favorites from him. This increased my enjoyment of THE BRASS VERDICT greatly.


    On Deck: Bruen & Starr's THE MAX, Bruen's ONE WERE COPS and the new Chercover book others have mentioned.
