08.11.08 As I finally wind down the Connelly books, I am now an active fan. I kind of see him as the Stephen King of the mystery/crime genre. The stories may not be super incredible and I'm never really scared or worried or any of that but damn if they aren't fun to read and reliably consistent. I also like how he has Bosch age. He's an older guy now and even though we didn't first meet him as a rookie we feel he has even more experience these days, and is possibly getting left behind. It's an interesting dynamic. Also toned down are the archetypal random romances in every book. It seems like ever since whatserhane shot herself in... one of the books (Lost Light? City of Bones?), he's really narrowed his women down to just one or two. I also appreciate (much like Stephen King) how he keeps his non-Bosch books in the same universe, occasionally tying together. So after this comes the short Outlook, followed by probably a year break until his new one's out in paperback then I'll go back and read Lincoln Lawyer and the new one since they both have the same main character. This last long run of his books have been fun though and it's a solid comfort knowing I have a page-turner paperback in my bag at work whenever i need to take a break.
