RARA-AVIS: Michael Connelly

For a while I read all his books, but he finally outpaced me and there are a few of the more recent ones that I haven't read. My favorites have always been the early Bosch novels. From memory, I'm thinking Black Echo, Concrete Blonde, and Last Coyote.
 Great writing, a great story, and a very intense Bosch. I have enjoyed his non-Bosch novels, too. Although I have had a hard time warming to Terry Caleb, I liked his female protagonist in Void Moon.

I just finished Lincoln Lawyer. Some of the more recent ones seemed to have a little less spark than the earlier ones. Maybe the newness just wore off. Typically, I hate lawyer novels, but Lincoln Lawyer was great. Very close to the best I've read by him. And the character is not Harry Bosch dressed up in a different job, either.

I think John Lau recommended this book. Good pick, John.
