His last two or three books aren't nearly as good as his earlier ones. I thought CITY OF BONES, his newest one, wasn't much more than a decent first novel. Go back to Connelly's actual first, THE BLACK ECHO, which is great, or try THE POET as Mr. Martin recommended. I think he takes a turn for the worse starting with ANGELS FLIGHT, but some people think he keeps getting better. I'll still read 'em.
