Date Read Note
09.16.09 It's been a while since I've plowed through a Connelly book. I was waiting on this for The Brass Verdict to hit paperback since I knew the main character in this meets Harry Bosch in Verdict and want to read them consecutively. This is definitely the most courtroomy of Connelly's books... the first half is surprisingly slow but the second half really picked up and ended up being very satisfying. Connelly's style is still very yarny and sometimes borders on too much corn (as compared to Pelecanos' bittersweet reality) but as an archetypal crime mystery novel I think Connelly's at the top. Even with unbelievable names, his characters are taut and rich enough and react off one another like marbles scrambling away from hungry hungry hippos. He's also written some of the most readable books I've ever read. Can't wait to dive into Brass Verdict after taking such an extended vacation from his stuff.
