Date Read Note
09.20.11 The latest Connelly (in paperback) is a Mickey Haller/Harry Bosch collaboration. It flip flops chapters between 1st person Haller and 3rd person Bosch perspectives. As usual, Connelly is a master of plot and pacing. The last half of the book flew bye. What I found most interesting about this book was the ending. Spoiler alert! So I kept expecting a twist. He laid some seeds of doubt in the reader earlier on but mostly the climax goes too smoothly. You know, just because you're reading a legal thriller, that SOMETHING has to happen, and something does indeed happen but it's completely opposite of what I thought it would be then the very ending, rather than having everything nicely tied up, deflates into a series of guesses and loose ends that feels remarkably authentic. It's a really great way to end the book and reminds me why I like stuff like this, Pelecanos' work, and the The Wire. I ate this book up.
