The new Harry Bosch novel by Connelly comes out in November! Aren’t you excited? Here’s the first two teaser sentences for you:
By the third night the death count was rising so high and so quickly that many of the divisional homicide teams were pulled off the front lines of riot control and put into emergency rotations in South-Central. Detective Harry Bosch and his partner Jerry Edgar were pulled from Hollywood Division and assigned to a roving B watch team that also included two shotgunners from patrol for protection.
Naturally we jump right into the action. I do like Connelly; and his latest does not disappoint.
What are you reading this weekend?
