"I finished Chasing the Dime in one evening - it reads so fast and pulls you along so compellingly that you don't realize until you put it down how unlikely the basic premise is." - Dusty Rhoades - RAM
"Henry Pierce just got a new phone number and is getting calls for "Lilly". Curious, he looks into it. He discovers Lilly is a call girl and has gone missing. Henry is also the founder and president of a high tech company looking for investors. So it is a bit strange for him to get all worked up by all of this. The story revolves around "nano-technology", the current frontier in which research is boldly going. Pierce's interest has medical impact and so they "chase the dime" belonging to investors who have a personal interest in this kind of development. Like most of Connelly's work, he has a meticulous prose that makes the scenes very real and adds a level of authority to his stories. I not only felt I understood what Pierce's research was about, I felt I now qualified to get a job with him! A good read." - Jeff Kreider - RAM

"Oh, what a book. I devoured it, barely pausing to breathe. Perhaps it's not the best method, and maybe I should have savored the journey just a little bit longer, but what could I do? It's Harry Bosch, and I simply HAD to keep reading, to see how all the new layers kept peeling back, bit by bit, discovering new pieces to this very flawed, extremely complex, and incredibly appealing character." - Sarah - RAM

Winner 2003 Anthony Award (Best Novel)
"CITY OF BONES is Michael Connelly's latest. A dog finds a bone in the woods. The dogs owner, a retired physician, recognizes it as, not only, human, but that of a child. The bone has been in the ground for somewhere around 20 years. This leads Harry Bosch into a 20 year old child abuse/murder case. The side issues in this story are that Harry has lost Kismin from his team who has been moved up to RHD, a new woman, a young and eager patrol cop, comes into his life (she and her partner go the original call on the "dog bone") and Irvin Irving seems to have an increasingly confrontational eye on Harry. The "signature" twist ending is back, sort of. The big surprise, though, is not the solution to the case, though that was nicely done, has to do with Harry, himself . It kinda makes you wonder what Connelly has up his sleeve for Harry." - Jeff Kreider - RAM
"The twists and turns of City Of Bones keep you guessing until the end, but the final surprise (which comes on the last page) is a real shocker." - Dusty Rhoades - RAM

Book Description / Blurb

New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly delivers his first legal thriller an incendiary tale about a cynical defense attorney whose one remaining spark of integrity may cost him his life.

Mickey Haller has spent all his professional life afraid that he wouldn't recognize innocence if it stood in front of him. Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients.

From bookies to con artists to drunk drivers and drug dealers, they're all on Mickey Haller's client list. But when a Beverly Hills rich boy is arrested for brutally beating a woman Haller has his first high paying client in years. It's a franchise case and he's sure it will be a slam dunk in the courtroom. For once, he may be defending a client who is actually innocent.

But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame. To escape without being burned, Haller must use all of his skills to manipulate a system in which he no longer believes.

Crime Beat : A Decade of Covering Cops and Killers  (2006)   384 pp.

Book Description / Blurb

From #1 bestseller Michael Connelly's first career as a prizewinning crime reporter--the gripping, true stories that inspired and informed his novels. Before he became a novelist, Michael Connelly was a crime reporter, covering the detectives who worked the homicide beat in Florida and Los Angeles. In vivid, hard-hitting articles, Connelly leads the reader past the yellow police tape as he follows the investigators, the victims, their families and friends--and, of course, the killers--to tell the real stories of murder and its aftermath. Connelly's firsthand observations would lend inspiration to his novels, from The Black Echo, which was drawn from a real-life bank heist, to Trunk Music, based on an unsolved case of a man found in the trunk of his Rolls Royce. And the vital details of his best-known characters, both heroes and villains, would be drawn from the cops and killers he reported on: from loner detective Harry Bosch to the manipulative serial killer the Poet. Stranger than fiction and every bit as gripping, these pieces show once again that Michael Connelly is not only a master of his craft, but also one of the great American writers in any form.
