Michael, would you share more about how you came to create Bosch? It seems apparent that you had him thought through as a series character with an extensive backstory from the first page of The Black Echo and that you had a vision for where he would go from very early on. Is this assumption correct?

Many hardboiled protagonists strike me as an idealized version of the author, and Bosch does not seem to fit that bill either.
