29. West of Dodge Louis L'Amour A collection of Western short stories. Published posthumously. Most of these were really short, and just as I started to get into a story, it ended. I wouldn't recommend it.
Try ABE books. 3.00 here shipped. I've fortunately been able to read them in succession.
FTFY
Daniel Silva and Stephen Hunter. W.E.B. Griffin's Badge of Honor series for cop stuff, but IMO it's inferior to Connelly's.I'll have to try Deaver.As you know, I lived in LA for 10 years and know just enough of the landmarks to whet my appetite.
28. Angel's Flight- Michael Connelly Bosh solves a case involving the slaying of a high profile civil rights attorney. Lots of other good stuff I don't want to give away. Much better than the last one I read.
27. Trunk Music -Michael Connelly Bosh finds a body in the trunk of a Rolls Royce in the Hollywood Hills. The decedent visited Las Vegas often, and ultimately this takes Harry there, splitting the investigation with Los Angeles. He must tiptoe around an FBI organized crime task force to ultimately solve the case. He also re-connects with his love interest from the first book, and marries her. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others I've read so far- too contrived.
Try Stephen Hunter and WEB Griffin, too, although the latter gets pompous at times.
Currently, yes. Working my way through the Bosh novels.
True, that.Yep. Not everyone is like Kobe, milking his team for 30m keeping the Lakers from signing anyone else worth a shit.But he deserves Top 10.
26. The Last Coyote- Michael Connelly Bosh is on disciplinary leave for assaulting his supervisor. He is forced to see a department psychologist to determine if he can return to duty. In the meantime his house is condemned and razed due to an earthquake; he loses and finds another girlfriend; and solves the 1961 murder of his prostitute mother. Spellbinding stuff.
