Concrete Blonde
Concrete Blonde | Michael Connelly
20 posts | 52 read | 1 reading | 8 to read
They call him the Dollmaker, a serial killer who stalks Los Angeles and leaves a grisly calling card on the faces of his female victims. When a suspect is shot by Detective Harry Bosch, everyone believes the city's nightmare is over. But then the dead man's widow sues Harry and the LAPD for killing the wrong man--an accusation that rings terrifyingly true when a new corpse is found with the Dollmaker's macabre signature. Now, for the second time, Harry must hunt down a ruthless death-dealer before he strikes again. Careening through a blood-tracked quest, Harry will go from the hard edges of the L.A. night to the last place he ever wanted to go--the darkness of his own heart...

Maybe not my favorite of the Bosch series, but it was still an enjoyable one.

51% into this book, and I think this is around Harry's 978th cigarette. I'm starting to feel like I can smell them.

#MusicalNewYear #CellBlockTango I did read this one , the 3d Bosch book, and loved it ... must get back on track with Michael Connelly.....
This is the first connection with the prompt I made ... it makes some kind of abstract sense to me 🤷🏻‍♀️

Last night i just had to finish this - the third in the bosch series and i wonder if its the best, if not i can't wait to read the rest. Great courtroom drama with Boach trying to reconcile his actions of 4 years before with the possibility that he made a mistake when the murders seem to being repeated.

Cathythoughts Beer & peanuts & Bosch .... nice one 👍🏻 12mo

Book 3 of the Harry Bosch series that I've recently started to read. Thoughly enjoyed this book and Bosch is a very likeable character. Looking forward to the next instalment "The Last Coyote"

I think this is my favorite one in the Bosch series so far!! I literally couldn‘t stop listening to it! I don‘t usually listen at work but for this one I just couldn‘t limit myself to the car and #audiocoloring! I keep saying that I‘m going to wait to get more in the series, but instead I keep buying extra Audible credits.... 😬

I ADORE Harry Bosch. Michael Connelly is a doggone genius with the police procedurals.

This one took me a while because it has plenty of courtroom scenes and they‘re a little boring to me. I got *really* into it probably about halfway thru.

Ahhhh, The Dollmaker Case! I DIDN‘T GUESS THE KILLER! I mean, I never guess twists, so I‘m not surprised. But that ending was great.

🎧This Bosch audio is again narrated by Dick Hill. Phenomenal, as always.

TrishB Love Bosch 💕 2y
MicheleinPhilly SAMESIES! I just finished this one today too. Tempted to dive into the 4th immediately but have SO many other books I should be reading! 2y
intothehallofbooks @TrishB Yessss 🙌🏻 😍 2y
intothehallofbooks @MicheleinPhilly RIGHT? I‘m halfway thru one book but the next Bosch is STARING AT ME. I don‘t think I‘ll be able to resist! 2y

1. 82 women led by my hot ass #fantasywife Cate Blanchett, walked the red carpet together at the Cannes Film Festival in solidarity for gender equity.
2. Cranky ass LAPD detective finds himself in hot water AGAIN.
3. Literary fiction.
4. Rainy and gloomy.
5. HA! I don‘t even know what I‘m having for lunch!

Spent entirely too much time this weekend binging Bosch on Amazon. Since my brain has been all sorts of frazzled during the work week, I‘m going back to the source material.

TrishB 💜 Bosch 2y
AlaMich The wife and I just finished the newest season. Connelly has written enough Bosch books to keep the series going until Bosch has to sell his amazing house and go into assisted living, but I wonder how long the show will really last. 2y
MicheleinPhilly @AlaMich We‘re still on Season 1 but it‘s really good. I laughed so hard when I saw that house for the first time though. 2y

MicheleinPhilly @TrishB Do you have access to the show? 2y
AlaMich @MicheleinPhilly In a later season, when someone admires the view, he says, “I didn‘t buy it for the view. I bought it because there‘s only one way in and one way out.” 2y
TrishB I do but have never watched! Not enough hours in the day and when there are any I read!! 2y

This is #3 in the Harry Bosch Universe. Spending part of the time reading print and most of the time listening to the audio because I loooove Dick Hill‘s narration with this series 🎧👏🏻📖

(Don‘t even get me started with how much I love the tv series, it‘s so good! #fangirl)

1. Has to be Michael Connelly, & Harry Bosch. I‘m getting to know Bosch , And because I really like him , then that‘s comforting.
2. I think I more or less like all Christmas songs
3. We have started Chris Kindle in the last few years. But everyone buys for the one & only princess granddaughter 💕
4. No goals I‘m happy to read away at my own pace , 4 books this month !! An all time high 🎉
5 I surely will 👍

#MelodiousMusicals #Omigodyouguys #legallyblonde Thought I'd go with The Concrete Blonde by Michael Connelly, which is the third book in the excellent #HarryBosch Series. This is the only book I've read with blonde in the title, but I do own and want to read Dirty Blonde by Lisa Scottoline, who is a blonde herself.

CrowCAH Great choice! 👩🏼‍⚖️ 2y

My third Harry Bosch & my favourite so far. Connolly had me guessing right up to the end. I love the depth of Harry. Think it's time for a walk now, having just finished this brilliant book 👍👍❤️

Cathythoughts Also any Michael Connelly fans out there , I'd love some recommendations, as he has written so much. Thankyou ❤️ 2y

Reading in the garden. I love Harry Bosch, he brings his own history to his work. The depth of humanity he has for those he encounters, he has a conscience, thank god for that.

My fourth Harry Bosch and they're growing on me all the time. The prose is spare and yet occasionally achieves its own kind of poetry, the dialogue pitch-perfect and Harry is a protagonist it's impossible not to root for. The whodunnit aspect is expertly handled and left me guessing till the end. Recommended.

Lexeegee I am hooked on Harry Bosch. 3y
Dragon I liked The Lincoln Lawyer so I'm going to have to try his Harry Bosch books 3y
bookishdawg "Everybody counts or nobody counts." Bosch #21 coming out this fall... A consistently great series 3y
