About This Item

Orion, Sep 2000. Re-issue. Paperback. Michael Connelly, with his eponymous LA detective Harry Bosch, has undoubtedly reached the top-rank of crime thriller writers. When broadsheets like The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian and The Telegraph pen hugely enthusiastic reviews, all echoing reaction from the tabloids, uncertain readers can be pretty sure they're on to a good bet. And there's no doubt at all that the 750 or so pages of the "The Harry Bosch Mysteries" will do two things: it'll garner a whole new army of fans, and let those who've already discovered Connelly and Bosch in later books catch up on how the saga of the LA cop started and got firmly established. Apart from anything else, there's an extra bonus too. Many of the Harry Bosch books contain fleeting, though relatively unimportant, references to events and incidents which have gone before. For new readers, "The Harry Bosch Mysteries" will explain virtually all of those. "The Black Echo" is the first book within the book and won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel when it was published. It's hard to imagine a reader who'll find that surprising as the last page is turned. The hallmarks are the author's apparently encyclopaedic knowledge of LA police procedures (which, amazingly, never become boring or tedious) coupled with a fast-moving storyline and a high possibility of keeping the eventual pay-off hidden until the last few pages. "The Black Ice" expands on Bosch's pre-police life and provides an even more startling finale after taking the detective to Mexico. It also hints at replacing the love interest from "The Black Echo" with...but that'd be giving too much away. And then finally comes "The Concrete Blonde" with an even more startling finish - an ending which (let me stick my neck out here) most readers simply won't spot coming. Here's a hint though: one of Connelly's strengths is his willingness to sacrifice characters he's carefully painted in earlier, either in previous books or simply previously. All in all, "The Harry Bosch Mysteries" has to be one of this year's bargain buys - over 750 pages for less than the price of a discounted hard-cover. Bosch fans, snap it up. And for those yet to discover Connelly's creation: trust me, you're very unlikely to be disappointed!
