it was amazing

Brass Verdict is a nearly perfect book. It's a first-person court procedural, told by defense attorney Mickey Haller, main character of Lincoln Lawyer. Harry Bosch is in there, too, in the third person. Fascinating switch.

The plotting is razor-sharp, all the setups there for the twist-twist-and-twist-again in the final pages.

But I think back to Hammett. As many times as I've read The Thin Man and seen the movie, I still don't completely understand the plot or the motivations of some of the characters.

That's what I'm missing here. All of the characters, white hats and black, have perfectly logical and understandable reasons for their character flaws, addictions, and sins.

But I do agree that "The Garden of Earthly Delights" is not a bad place.

If you are a meat-eater, you will be booking your dates at Pacific Dining Car and Dan Tana's. Remember to discreetly tip the host at Tana's or you'll wait forever for a table.
