The Gods of Guilt (2013)
language
English
series
4.05 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Connelly's Mickey Haller has a rough go in this Lincoln Lawyer tale. Is this the next Mickey Haller movie? It's maybe a little more complex with several story-lines, and yet somehow it seemed maybe a little more predictable. . . to a point. There are a couple of minor plot twist...

review 1: Another Harry Bosch page turner. He is working a cold case from the LA riots many years ago. A journalist who was covering war crimes was murdered. He wasn't able to properly investigate at the time because of the riots, but is now back on the case. I liked the way the clues ...

review 1: Connelly has been one of my go to favorites for years but this is the least wonderful of his books in my opinion. His new sidekick, Lucy Soto, didn't fire my imagination like some of his other partners and his new love interest never ignited and I found the ending depressing. I...

review 1: I really like the Harry Bosch series so I was intrigued by this book which combines Bosch with Micky Haller. The dialogue and plot were very good, although it was a bit disconcerting that the point of view kept switching between the two main characters. It was compelling enough...
The Fifth Witness (2011)
language
English
series
4.14 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: After a book that was equal parts Bosch and Haller, The Fifth Witness goes back to its root: pure Lincoln Lawyer stuff. I probably enjoyed it the second most, too, because so much of the intrigue took place in the courtroom. This comes at the price of less action, but this is a c...
Switchblade (2014)

English

review 1: This book will be slow for many readers, but for the true crime fan or the reader who enjoys a real life feel to their detective books, this one was written especially for you.These readers typically dislike it when the police processes are short-shifted. They dislike it when a m...
Mulholland Dive (2012)
language
English
3.76 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I found these short stories by Connelly a mixed bag. The first one, "cahoots" was super short and awful. A complete waste of time. The second one, "mulholland drive" was actually quite good. It was very interesting, and for a short story had a good couple of twists I did not s...

The Safe Man: A Ghost Story (2012)
language
English
3.62 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: The Safe Man is a departure from detective crime fiction for Michael Connelly. The story is about a legitimate safe cracker who opens a rare type of safe and unleashes something evil that could effect the future. The concept is the same as unleashing a genie without the wishes. T...

review 1: When authors with a successful series and a well-defined character take that character out of his/her normal environment, to a foreign country, say, where he performs spectacularly, you know the book is about to go off the rails. The only explanation I can come up with is that ...

series

review 1: Can't believe I forgot to review this one. Let me quickly sum up.Nine Dragons had a great beginning, with lots of little clues dropped around the murder to get a reader speculating. Once again, Connelly does his usual trick of hinting that the mafia or something greater may be in...
Suicide Run: Three Harry Bosch Stories (2000)
language
English
3.88 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I will admit that I thoroughly enjoyed the two collections of short stories that Connelly penned about Harry Bosch, SUICIDE RUN and ANGLE OF INVESTIGATION. I will also admit to a slight fog in mental acuity that makes discussing each one individually slightly difficult, so please...
Angle of Investigation (2011)
language
English
3.97 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Collections of short stories are difficult to review because in themselves they have indivual impact. They also, somewhat like movies, are unable to develop characters with the power of a novel. With that said, Michael Connelly is probably the best mystery writer of my time and I...
Intervention suicide (Cal-Lévy- R. Pépin) (2014)
language
English

review 1: Deep, deep police procedural work. Every once in awhile it's good to be reminded that what we read in literature and see on TV and movies is a long way from reality. I'm a person who enjoys them. In fact, I enjoyed this.Overall, it was a pleasure for me to hear (audio version) an...
