I'm always looking (so long as I don't have to go too far out of my way) for a well-made and interesting book trailer so when I heard--on Ed Gorman's blog--about the trailer for Michael Connelly's latest novel The Brass Verdict I had to take a look. I was impressed with what I saw.
The trailer is produced by veteran film and novel writer Terrill Lee Lankford and it feels more like a short film than a trailer. It shows us the characters, action, and the moody violence of a story I want to read. A few more book trailers like The Brass Verdict and the kids will be reading again.
And as a bonus here is the trailer for Connelly's Echo Park. It runs something over nine minutes, but it's worth the time.
