    Took opportunity to circle back and fill in some blanks with this trinity in one volume. Lots of Harry making his own kind of trouble but living through it by a hair. After the earthquake his house ending up in a dumpster, during suspension his couch time counseling, somehow surviving the uncovering of who was involved in his mother's death like a blind bull as the body count increases... and many other struggles and victories.

    I recently read Michael Connelly’s entire catalog, chronologically from Bosch to Haller to the various “Harry Bosch Universe” satellites (whatever the hell that means). On a whole Connelly’s body of work is excellent. His plots are well thought out, his dialogue fits, and his characters are believable – although the best character of them all is the City of Los Angeles and its quirky nuances, restaurants, neighborhoods, and geographic coolness.

    Generally, I really enjoy Michael Connelly books. Sometimes, Harry Bosch's bad luck strains credulity, as was definitely the case in the first two of the three novels in this collection. Still enjoyable, still great reads.

    I love the Harry Bosch novels. He is a real flawed person with real personal trials.

    If you are looking for a good old fashioned detective story look no further. Connelly weaves a good tale and developers a character you love and hate at the same time. Harry is a fine man with a high instinct for justice and a low threshold for angry outbursts. He is not the Travis McGee of my 20's but still an excellent read.

    I'm a huge fan of the Bosch TV series and picked up this book which has 3 of the Bosch novels (4-6) at Half-Price Books, so unfortunately I began reading them out of order - and I can say for sure that is not a problem, the books are independent of one another. If you love crime drama and the Bosch TV series (all of these stories in 4-6 are reflected in the TV series - some different plot twists but no major issues), you'll love the books too.

    Each book is like peeling an onion! The books are so independent yet so interdependent! Connelly has brought Bosch to life with his fabulous story telling. Even though these early books are from the 90’s the topics are still so relevant (unfortunately). Just fantastic reads,

The Last Coyote — 4 stars This book is pretty standard Michael Connelly: gritty and dark, with well developed characters and an intriguing whodunit. I really like how Connelly's absolutely fearless with he comes to his regular supporting characters - he doesn't hesitate to turn them into murderers or kill them off, and he does so without breaking a sweat. I applaud his courage. The Last Coyote is part cold case, part therapy session.

I really like how Connelly's absolutely fearless with he comes to his regular supporting characters - he doesn't hesitate to turn them into murderers or kill them off, and he does so without breaking a sweat. I applaud his courage. The Last Coyote is part cold case, part therapy session. The latter managed to not bore me too much, and the former was a really interesting read, because I'd been waiting for Harry Bosch to finally go after his mother's killer; at first I was kind of disappointed by how neatly everything was wrapped up, having expected the usual plot twist that would leave me giggling with glee, but I figured that with twenty-ish pages to go, that wasn't very likely to happen. But then it did. And that is why I love Michael Connelly. It never gets old. The one gripe I might have about the book is Jasmine; I don't really understand how she fits into the bigger picture. Maybe it's just because I liked Sylvia Moore and was hoping she'd hang around for a while. Trunk Music — 3 stars I have to admit that this book didn't suck me in quite the way Connelly's other books have. I don't quite know why, but perhaps I'm simply OD'ing on Harry Bosch and am close to having had my fill? There's no real twist ending in this book, which kind of made me feel cheated. It was rather obvious whodunit once Powers happened to drop into the café/restaurant meeting, and that was with one hundred pages left of the book to go! The jail break kind of made up for it, but still, probably the least exciting book I've read so far in this series. Still good, but pretty run-of-the-mill. Angels Flight — 5 stars Angels Flight is a total page turner. It's pretty much all of my favorite things rolled into one: murder, lawyers, court cases, the FBI, revenge, the '90s (more on that later), innocent people trying to clear their names, and, of course, that surprise twist in the end that I never see coming (only here I kind of did, at least 50% of it). I've mentioned it before, but I'll say it again: I really like how Connelly handles his reoccurring characters. In this book he brings Chastain to the forefront of the investigation (even if this of course means the end of Chastain), fleshing him out and kind of making him more than That Evil IAD Guy. Connelly also brings back Roy Lindell from Trunk Music, one of the more interesting characters in this series so far, which pleases me immensely. And then, of course, there's Harry, who's becoming strangely endearing due to his failed attempts at love. I usually get bored by MCs who are forever hooking up with the female character of the week, but Connelly manages to convince me that Harry Bosch is different, that he's actually looking for The One, and probably would have found it already had he not been so utterly crap at searching for anything other than clues at a murder scene. I've grown to really like Harry; I sympathize with him, and I wish him well, because somewhere along the line Connelly's made me believe that while Harry really might be rather short and gruff and mustachioed, he's also a total teddy bear on the inside. But I digress. Of course, one of the greatest things about these books are that they're a really fun ride through the magical '90s. Over the course of the series "cassette tapes" become "compact discs" which become "CDs"; Harry goes from being totally phoneless to owning a "portable phone" which is then upgraded to a "cellular phone" (though he still keeps it in his briefcase); Eleanor decides to leave her husband when she realizes she doesn't love him as much as Rose loved Jack in Titanic; one minute computers are hug IBM boxes kept in special rooms and typewriters are the detectives' tool of choice, and the next thing you know there are laptops everywhere; and then of course there are the Zip drives and CD-ROMs and the Internet with all its hyperlinks and servers and websites - now fully explained thanks to that hot new recruit from Computer Fraud! I am amused and will definitely read on, even though the next book will, sadly, drag me kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

    I finished Volume 1 and immediately started Volume 2 and couldn't put it down. I like Harry, he is always looking for the truth although it usually ends up covered with bureaucratic garbage. He's the lone coyote trying to survive in suburban LA. Sometimes I see a glimmer of compassion in Irving but more often the hand of the fixer for LAPD. Lots of dark sides to these characters and I'm never sure which side they're on.

    This consisted of three different books: the first was very helpful in seeing into Harry's past especially his mother and her untimely death. Thought it was a bit longish and depressing though it does help you understand Harry. the second book was good in that it helped you understand his past with Eleanor Wish but the main story itself was not all that exciting. The third was my favorite, pulled you in from the beginning and held you there til the end plus it aids you in seeing how Cheif Irwin Ir This consisted of three different books: the first was very helpful in seeing into Harry's past especially his mother and her untimely death.

    Connelly's thematic reach extends further and further You can read the Harry Bosch books in order or not. I've been reading them in order and in Angel's Flight find that Connelly's ability to write a social theme novel has reached a stage of mastery without a note of preachiness. Bosch remains a righteous hero with flaws the size of a skyscraper and in this book, a broken heart. The main story is a densely woven tapestry about friendship, race relations, honor.

    This second series of the Harry Bosch novels were a slower read for me than those in volume 1. Much more personal information on Harry to process, as well as the main plot line of each title, slowed me down as I didn't want to miss anything that might be important later. Although I found all of them to be novels that I would recommend to anyone that enjoys mysteries, it would be with a caution that Connelly doesn't pull any punches in his descriptions of crime scenes or dialog.

    When I picked up 9 Dragons, I had no idea it was #14 of a series! It was a great read and I found this compilation on the clearance shelf for $3...although I won't be reading the Harry Bosch novels in order, I am excited to read these!
