Chasing the Dime by Michael Connelly , Hardcover. Haller's plans are accelerated when his colleague Jerry Vincent is murdered, and Haller is assigned all of Vincent's open cases, including the highest-profile murder trial in Hollywood.

As often happens with Connelly mysteries, The Brass Verdict 's story weakens as its resolution approaches, once it all becomes a matter of revealing who's who and assigning everyone a fate—some apt, some not.
