About the Book

Since the publication of his first novel in 1992, Michael Connelly has become one of America’s most popular and critically acclaimed crime writers. He is best known as the author of a long-running series featuring LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch, one of the most compelling figures in contemporary crime fiction. He also created several additional series featuring a criminal defense attorney (Mickey Haller, known as the Lincoln Lawyer), an FBI profiler (Terry McCaleb), a newspaper reporter (Jack McEvoy), and an LAPD policewoman (Renée Ballard) who works the night shift. When he began incorporating all his characters into the Bosch megaseries, he expanded the notion of what a crime series can accomplish.
This work takes an in-depth look at all of Connelly’s work, including the thirty-four novels that comprise the Bosch megaseries, the film adaptations of his books, the popular “Bosch” TV series, and his standalone novels, short stories and podcasts. It also includes chapters on his novelistic artistry and his portraits of Los Angeles and its police department.
