Lazy Sunday Service

It's been a while since I've read a book by either Michael Connelly (The Scarecrow in mid-2010) or Ian Rankin (The Complaints, start-2010), so when I saw The Black Box and Standing in Another Man's Grave on display in the local bookshop yesterday I decided to part with some cash.  Interestingly, they are both cold case stories featuring retired detectives.  Neither Connelly or Rankin it seems are willing to let their signature lead characters wander off into the sunset. Expect reviews sometime between now and the new year.

My posts this week:
November reads
Review of A Few Right Thinking Men by Sulari Gentill
Australian publishing: Digging a hole for itself?
Review of The Vanishing Point by Val McDermid
Home run

Enjoy The Black Box. Connelly does not disappoint. In fact, I enjoy his books now more than ever.

In this escapade, Harry Bosch goes over the top, over the line and nearly off the cliff. However, he brought this reader with him.

A wonderful weekend with Harry, doing nothing productive, but following the solving of a fascinating cold case.

This author has not lost his touch, and shows, once again, why he's at the top of his game, more popular than ever -- and why Harry Bosch continues to be many readers' favorite detective.
