I am a HUGE fan of the television show Law and Order. I like Criminal Minds and pretty much any cop “who dun-it” type shows. I like books that are that way too. Just recently I came upon Micheal Connelly books, the Harry Bosch series, to be specific.
The first book I listened to was The Drop (Harry Bosch).
It was good so I went to Amazon to see if he had authored other books. I was SO happy to see that there was an entire series! Now I’ve listened to several and plan to listen to the whole series… So far I have listened to this entire set The Harry Bosch Novels: The Black Echo, The Black Ice, The Concrete Blonde.
I’ve also listened to A Darkness More Than Night (Harry Bosch).
Right now I am listening to The Last Coyote (Harry Bosch).
All of the books are really good….there’s a little tough guy cop that walks just on the verge of being with in the law feel to the books. I have listened to enough of the books now that I have the same connection to Harry Bosch as I have to television characters. You don’t have to read the first one first to know what is going on…the are good stand alone books as well as series.
I can typically figure out who is guilty but about three quarters of the way through the book..but occasionally there has been a twist and I was wrong. That’s the perfect type of cop book for me. I am happy to report that there are 14 books in the series.
Here is how the author Micheal Connelly describes Harry Bosch.
“Harry Bosch Background: Born in 1950 in Los Angeles to Marjorie Phillips Lowe. He was named Hieronymus Bosch after the 15th century Dutch artist and nicknamed “Harry.” He became an orphan at 11 when his mother, a prostitute, was murdered. He grew up living in a youth hall and foster homes. He joined the army and did two tours in Vietnam. Harry returned to Los Angeles and joined the LAPD in 1972. He became a detective after five years in patrol.”
If you are like me, you might like to see a listing of the books in order (because I love to read them in order if I can).
I listen to books while I sew and while I walk. These books have been the perfect companion for me..enough of a mystery to keep me interested but not so much that I can’t keep quilting.
