Connelly is one of the finest authors working in the mystery/thriller genre. The Harry Bosch series is outstanding and should not be missed by anyone who enjoys mysteries or police procedurals. This is the first in the Harry Bosch series. Highly recommended!

In this book we get a deeper look into Harry Bosch's past and we learn just how deeply his time as a 'tunnel rat' in Vietnam helped to mold his character. This tale of murder and mayhem built around a bank heist (or two?) by tunnelers has the usual number of 'gotchas' as Connelly's characters reveal who they are and are not. Darn good read.

I wanted to try an author I haven't read before and saw Michael Connelly on The Craig Ferguson Show. He was very humorous and the conversation was easy so I hoped that his writing style would be the same. I was not disappointed with this story. I felt that it developed well and I was satisfied at the end, although I had a suspicision of who the real culprit was from about the middle of the book. The main character of Harry Boush is a likeable one and I can't wait to keep reading this series. I would recommend anyone who likes mysteries and/or cop dramas to give Michael Connelly a try.

While not the first book by this author I've read, this was the first Harry Bosch novel and I couldn't be more thankful for it. It was a delightful read clear through and reminded me of the detective novels of old. A great read for anyone who enjoys the genre!
