WHOA....someone's venturing into the "sacred cow" territory discussed a few months back. Look out, Joe.

Connelly is a favorite of mine but, like you, I did not enjoy the first book of his I read (TRUNK MUSIC) all that much. I've since learned that any of his books featuring Bosch work better the more familiar one is with Connelly's entire catalogue. If you want to give him another chance, I would recommend reading any of the first three Bosch books - though it's not the first in the series, THE CONCRET BLONDE seems like the perfect introduction to Bosch. Otherwise, you might consider the THE POET, which is a stand alone.

If you give one of those a shot sometime down the road, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
