Michael Connelly

Michael Connelly is one of the finest exponents of the modern day hardboiled crime novel. His series featuring Harry Bosch has been consistently brilliant capturing the tone and mood of both the city of LA in which it is set and the character of the man trying to survive. Bosch started out as a hard bitten LA police detective who very much walks his own path in hunting down criminals. As well as the Bosch series, Connelly has also introduced Terry McCaleb and, in more recent times, Mickey Haller a lawyer operating out of the back of his Lincoln.

The awards that have been picked up by Connelly's books are numerous with the highlights being an Edgar Award for The Black Echo, Anthony Awards for The Poet, Blood Work, City Of Bones and The Brass Verdict, Dilys Awards for The Last Coyote and The Poet, Barry Awards for Trunk Music and City of Bones and a Nero Award for The Poet.
