CITY OF BONES was my first Connelly read, and nearly my last. I like
everything else of his that I've read infinitely more than I did COB, for
reasons including those laid out by Juri below, and also because he killed
off the most interesting character in the book halfway through and in a
completely laughable manner and for an absolutely ludicrous
I just didn't buy it, and almost didn't finis the book.
I've found THE OVERLOOK, LINCOLN LAWYER and several of the Bosch novels
