I had never read anything by Michael Connelly until now, but after reading this book of his hero detective, Harry Bosch, I am ready to go back and look for others of this character. A fast pace murder mystery that has you guessing not only of who the murderer might be, but also who in the professionla ranks might be involved. A great story, and one I couldn't put down. One of the fastest reads I ever did.
Harry Bosch is a believable LA detective. A man confesses to a murder that has haunted Harry for over a decade. The confessor is not Harry's prime suspect, leading him to worry about his instincts.
LAPD Detective Harry Bosch keeps you at the edge of suspense thanks to the talents of his creator Michael Connelly. Be sure you have lots of time to sit and read once you start this novel - you won't want to put it down!
"Echo Park" is an exciting, unpredictable story full of themes such as guilt, all-consuming passion for justice, betrayal and friendship. One of the better police novels I've read in a long time.
I happened to come along to Michael Connelly after picking this book up at the airport in preperation for a long flight. I made a great choice. This is a great mystery that keeps you in suspense from beginning to end. I live in the Los Angeles area and I enjoyed being able to follow the characters all around Los Angeles, having a perfect picture in my mind's eye exactly where each event was taking place. If you are a fan of Patricia Cornwell's earlier novels, chances are you will enjoy Michael Connelley.
