Book Love! The Burning Room

I’ve missed the slightly damaged, rebel with a cause detective, Harry Bosch. But the two-year wait for the newest in Michael Connelly’s Bosch series was worth it. The Burning Room does not disappoint: Two parallel investigations for the price of one; a new partner for Bosch; a rookie female detective; Connelly’s usual insider view of the city of angels and LAPD; and, of course, Bosch himself–one of contemporary crime fiction’s most notable protagonists. A great read and the inspiration for my first column for the Los Angeles News Group: Why are so many crime novels set in Los Angeles?
