This is the first Connelly I've read with my eyes rather than listening to the audiobook, and I was mildly surprised that the feeling of watching a movie rather than reading a book is just as strong when I read as when I listen. I'm also mildly surprised that the convolutions of the plot don't hinder my enjoyment of this novel. There's one character I kind of hope shows up again as he just kind of dropped away, and I liked him.

Readerann I also enjoy audio AND reading these. I usually do a combination on each book. 3mo

So this is the 2nd of the Bosch series & it didn‘t disappoint.Bosch gets drawn into a case he isn‘t really assigned to, plays some hunches & even follows the trail to Mexico infuriating command. Twists & turns keep it an exciting read .Connelly does a great job making the LA area as big a character as the human ones.I think Concrete Blonde is next up .

Sadly I‘m not doing a lot of reading these days, but still try to get in 1-2 books a month via audio. Hoping to increase that to three in April with the help of #deweysreadathon. I‘m listening to the first Harry Bosch mystery. ½ way done and really enjoying it. A gritty police procedural with good pacing. I hope you all are enjoying your readathon choices!

With #audiocleaning earlier and then #audiopuzzling this evening, I managed to get in 11 hours and 29 minutes (my timer was counting down). #24in48 #readathon

I read a short story, 2 picture books and about 75% of an audio book.

The borderline and crossing the borderline is a strong element in this book, and has Bosch crossing the borderline into Mexico. #Movember #Borderline

So I LOVE that I've only read the first two of the Bosch books because that means I have tons more to look forward to. This one was terrific.

Almost at 4 1/2 hours for #MayMakeup. Not too bad for the first day. And this book checked off 3 prompts for #MayScavengerHunt (300+ pages, someone dies, and part of a series). Now on to the newest Firefly book.

Thanks to the sample included in the first book in the series, I just couldn‘t help myself by getting the sequel and starting to listen immediately! This continues the series nicely and I love the narration! Bosch looks into an apparent suicide while also looking into the titular new drug on the streets... Great for #audiocoloring - and #audiocleaning too!

Friday night and as i have had loads of work reading this week i am finding relief in a good old crime novel and im enjoying the bosch journey. Im a bit distracted by the football and wife and dtr looking at prom dresses on line ( this is our third prom, I'm just glad this American tradition wasn't around when i was a teenager as i always picture either carrie or high school musical) Friday night ramblings!

saresmoore I loathe prom! Ugh! But best wishes that your daughter will find the perfect dress. 😬 I‘m sure it won‘t be horrifying or overtly musical. 4y
andrew61 @saresmoore they are still talking dresses. 3 daughters sara, is it any wonder i bury myself in books 😂 4y
saresmoore Not at all! 😂 My husband only has two and has taken quite a liking to comic books already. Happy Father‘s Day to you! 4y
andrew61 @saresmoore thanks and to your hubby as well ☺ 4y
Cathythoughts Every time I see someone reading a Michael Connelly I feel jealous... I can‘t seem to get the time for all the books 🙄. Enjoy ! Say hi to Bosch for me 4y

There is more of the Harry Bosch that I love so much here: justice and what is right overrides rules most of the time, and he carries baggage from his past. Gahhh, I love his commitment to finding the truth. I didn‘t love this story quite as much as the first (And that probably isn‘t really fair, The Black Echo is AMAZING). Connelly writes so solidly.

I‘m moving ahead with the next installment and I‘m reading in order of the Bosch Universe.

Kaye How many books are in that series ? 5y
intothehallofbooks @Kaye There are around 20 in just the Bosch series. However I noticed that his other shorter series have interconnected characters with Harry Bosch when I read the descriptions of the series. So I decided to read all of his books in the order that he wrote them instead of by series. That makes it a little longer at something like 31 by the time the next book comes out. But I‘m enjoying them so much, I‘m excited about it. 🙈 5y
Kaye That‘s an author I have yet to try. I think he‘s really popular so maybe someday I‘ll get to him. What‘s the very first book called ? I don‘t like reading series out of order. 5y

intothehallofbooks @Kaye Yay! The first is called The Black Echo. I‘m the same way about reading out of order! I hope you enjoy! 5y
MicheleinPhilly @kaye You should check out www.stopyourekillingme.com. You can find lists of series IN ORDER by author and character. It‘s a GREAT resource! 5y
Kaye Thank you for the title of book one. I‘ll look for it next time I go to the bookstore. 5y
Kaye Thanks @MicheleinPhilly Thats a good site to bookmark for future use. 🙂 5y
GatheringBooks just finished watching season 1 of the tv series adaptation - how does it compare? is it one book per season, or a combination of several novels? 5y
intothehallofbooks @GatheringBooks You know, I started the second season of the show last night! It‘s SO GOOD! At the end of the first book, in the newest edition, there was a note from Connelly that said the seasons aren‘t in the same order of the books. The first book is actually season three. It seems like they take a season to do a story arc? 5y
intothehallofbooks @GatheringBooks I wonder if there are little details in the episodes that are pulled from some of the books, but I‘m just not far enough into the reading to know. I LOVE the show but it‘s because I love book-Harry so much. 5y
GatheringBooks i have to find the first bosch book, stat!!! 5y

In his second Harry Bosch novel, Michael Connelly has the detective involved in a case where an officer has committed suicide. However, things aren‘t always as they seem and suddenly Harry is seeing links between three cases that he thought were unrelated. His investigation takes him to Mexico where justice is more a commodity than an abstraction. There are plenty of twists and turns, and I‘m starting to realize that Bosch is always good company!
