I'm reading... Michael Connelly



My first Michael Connelly book was The Lincoln Lawyer – I’m a sucker for a book with a movie tie-in! – and I enjoyed it to bits.  Thought the movie was great to.  So I decided to go back to the beginning of another Connelly series, beginning with THE BLACK ECHO.

This is the first of 18 – yay what a backlist!!! – books about homicide detective Harry Bosch and I loved it.  Its Hollywood setting focuses more on the seedy side of life in that part of town, with minimal nods to the industry that made the place famous.

Set in the early nineties there are moments it could feel dated but instead it feels atmospheric, giving you a glimpse of a time when homicide detectives had to fight over typewriters in order to type up their reports.

Nothing better than an author with a huge backlist and after grabbing the next couple of books in the Harry Bosch series for myself for Christmas ;), I’m sure you’ll be seeing his name pop up here over the next year!

More about the author here.  Buy the book here.

Next I’m reading... AIN'T SHE SWEET by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.  What are you reading?  Which book MUST I read this year?  Find the other books I've enjoyed in my "I'm reading..." series this year here!  Or join me at Goodreads.
