Well it might well not be high literature, and there are some fantastical elements, but it is a right-rollicking, gripping, page-turner of a book. Devoured very quickly.

Well, this was the first Michael Connelly -book for me. Strange that I have not bumped to him earlier because I really like these sort of crime detective novels. Well, better late than never, as they say.

The reason behind finding these books was Jo Nesbö and his Harry Hole -series. I listened all Harry Hole -audio books and really liked them. I also loved Harry as a main character. Harry Hole is middle-aged alcoholic rock fan. That's the type of hero I like.

In one interview Nesbö said that his main influence was Michael Connelly and Hieronymus Bosch -series. So after reading that I immediately crabbed this first book in Bosch -series.

And I did really liked it as you can see (4,5 stars out of five). Almost gave out five but I think the plot could have been just a little stronger.

I think that pretty soon they don't make books like these anymore because of all that woke-shit. So I am glad that I still have many more Bosch-books to go. Cheers for the future good reading times with those!

Renée Ballard is a Bosch/Not-Bosch-type character. They both have dogs. He's into jazz. She surfs. They both draw outside the lines in their police work. He's a lead Robbery Homicide Detective. She's babysitting crime on the night shift. They want to see justice done. He lives in the Hollywood Hills. She lives in a tent on the beach. And it's this last point that gives me pause. I'm not sure if her homelessness is a reaction to her sexual harassment episode, but it seems a bit unstable to me, especially for a cop. Honestly, Ballard is not very likable. If I was on the force, I'd certainly give her a wide berth at work. The plot was just okay and, being Michael Connelly, the novel is definitely a police procedural story. I probably won't pick up the sequel.… (mais)
