Jim, Bosch has been in Las Vegas a lot, and doesn't he spend some in Mexico in THE BLACK ICE? A couple of Connelly stand alones, if you can call any of his novels that, are set mainly in in other places. I was thinking of something like Crais' THE INDIGO SLAM which I think begins in LA only to have Elvis Cole get a case that sends him to Louisiana where the the bulk of the book is set.

I'm not able to check because I sold the bulk of my books in Chicago. My Hammetts,Chandlers and MacDonalds were so old they probably would have fallen apart if I tried to reread them anyway.
