Stick a fork in 'em. The W's are done.
47. The Scarecrow- Michael Connelly Jack McEvoy covers a murder involving a woman asphyxiated and stuffed in the trunk of a car. The case looks easily solved until he and his partner do a search and find another virtually identical murder in Las Vegas, and he determines that both killings are the work of a serial killer. He teams up with his old flame FBI agent from The Poet, and together they solve the case. And ride off together into the sunset. Great read.
This.And Cleveland looks less formidable now. Big game 4s in both Series. I for one am really enjoying them, although of course I wish the Spurs had gone farther.
46. The Poet- Michael Connelly A journalist does not believe reports that his twin, a police officer, committed suicide. He puts together a murder scenario believable enough to get the local police to reopen the case.

A tough unscrupulous Las Vegas private investigator is hired to find the money; finds her; and all manner of mayhem ensues. This is an older example of Connelly's work, but it's a fantastic read. I read it straight through without putting it...
Go Raptors!
44. Nine Dragons- Michael Connelly Bosch solves a Chinese convenience store owner's murder in South Central L.A. He is initially convinced the people behind the killing are members of Chinese organized crime and spends a significant portion of the book in Hong Kong, functioning in a significantly different police environment, outside the law. In the end the slaying turns out to be much simpler, but Harry's life changes forever due to the happenings in Hong Kong. This...
Gotta admit I'm rooting for OKC in this series, because they beat the Spurs. And I'm sick of hearing about Steph Curry and the Warriors.
Someone did that to Ginobili this year, he required surgery and was out for a month.Ouch.
