About the Author


Author Picture

Michael Connelly

Michael Connelly decided to become a writer after discovering the books of Raymond Chandler while attending the University of Florida. Connelly worked at newspapers in Daytona Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, primarily specializing in the crime beat.

In 1986 he and two other reporters wrote a magazine story on the crash and the survivors that was later short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize.

After three years Connelly began writing his first novel to feature LAPD Detective Hieronymus Bosch. The novel, won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel by the Mystery Writers of America.

He lives with his family in Florida.

Synopsis of this title

Back on the job after an involuntary leave of absence, LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch lands his first case: a Hollywood producer found in the trunk of his Rolls-Royce, shot twice in the head.  It looks like "trunk music," a Mafia hit.

The LAPD's organized crime unit is oddly uninterested, but Harry thinks they're wrong.  He follows the money trail from the producer's office to Las Vegas, where he quickly finds evidence of Mafia involvement.  But something about the case doesn't add up, and Harry follows a string of odd clues — glitter in the producer's cuffs, an over-the-counter medication in the Rolls' glove box — in a different direction entirely.

Just when Harry thinks he's on firm ground, the bottom falls out.  Blind sided again and again, at odds with his superiors, and overwhelmed by a romance that has cropped up in the middle of the case, Harry is as off balance as he's ever been.  When the picture finally comes into focus, Harry discovers a scheme many magnitudes more deadly than he imagined—with himself now one of its targets.  Running on instincts and nerves, with a short fuse and everything to lose, Harry must prove himself not just by breaking the case, but by surviving it.

Reviews of this title


"A jazzy, funky, roller coaster of a book….Connelly has it all working together here: skillful dialogue, solid plotting, nuances of race and a pace that will keep readers gasping to keep up…. His best yet."
— Publishers Weekly

"Truly one of the year's best entertainments."
— Booklist

"Compelling…Connelly displays a wonderful atmospheric feel for the posh and the poor…The last pages bring things to a shocking end that should satisfy Connelly's growing audience."
—  Washington Post
