Dirty Harry...

No, not that Harry...Harry Bosch, by Michael Connelly. Mr. Connelly has written several books, seventeen being about the life of Harry Bosch, Vietnam vet, homicide detective in Hollywood California.  His style is much different from say, Sandford or Patterson as he delves deeper into the psychology of a homicide detective, much more introspective.   In The Last Coyote, Harry reaches into his past to solve an unsolved murder while on suspension.  With the backdrop of a recent earthquake, Bosch is on the prowl through L.A., 'a place with many broken pieces, but some still work', only to find those broken pieces all fit together as he solves a thirty year old murder, jolting you with surprises like the tremor of a California quake.


  1. Hey did you know The Lincoln Lawyer will be a movie in March. Should be good. -Nar

  2. yes, I did see that, Narstuff. It stars Matthew McConaughey and Marisa Tomei. Lincoln Lawyer isn't a Bosch movie, and I've not read the book. It does pose a challenge for me in relation to an earlier post - books into movies. When I do read his book, I'll have the image of McConaughey as the central character, etc. which one could debate robs a reader of his/her own image what the character should look like?
