Author Info
Michael Connelly
Michael Connelly's best-known novels feature Hieronymous "Harry" Bosch, an LAPD detective who is relentless in his efforts to solve cold cases. Connelly feels that crime fiction performs an important function. "The world has become more confusing. It has also become more dangerous," he has said. "These books tend to follow a standard in which justice prevails. This is reassuring. I think we all look at the world and see that bad people often get away. [But] that doesn't happen too often in fiction." Connelly, who was born in Philadelphia, decided to become a crime writer after reading the works of Raymond Chandler as a teen. He earned a degree in journalism, and after being short-listed for a Pulitzer, for a 1986 story about a plane crash that he had written for a Florida newspaper, he was offered a job at the Los Angeles Times, where he remained until the mid-1990s. His first Harry Bosch novel, THE BLACK ECHO (1992), garnered an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America, an organization that Connelly would later head. Since that first outing, Bosch has been the focus of several other books, most of them bestsellers. Connelly's other series protagonist is Mickey Haller, a Los Angeles defense attorney who works out of his car. The character was introduced in THE LINCOLN LAWYER (2005), which was made into a film starring Matthew McConaughey in 2011. That did not mark the first time Connelly's work had been adapted for the big screen, however; in 2002 BLOOD WORK, a 1998 non-series novel about an ex-FBI agent who receives a heart transplant, had been filmed by Clint Eastwood. Besides seeing his characters brought to life by Hollywood, Connelly has also had the distinction of portraying himself in an episode of the ABC-TV series CASTLE.
Praise
"Combining ripped-from-the-headlines information on the mortgage crisis with a cast of characters that defies stereotypes at every turn of the plot, Connelly shows once again that he will never simply ride the wave of past success." (starred review)
"[T]he plot is worthy of a master storyteller." (starred review)
"Haller is the kind of slick, cynical showman who can't resist making high drama out of every routine legal procedure....[And] Connelley is himself a master manipulator, and there's always something deadly serious behind his entertaining courtroom high jinks."
From the Publisher
Annotation Mickey Haller has always tried to keep his costs down--by, for instance, operating his legal business chiefly out of his Lincoln Town Car. Nevertheless the bad economy effects even the frugal, and Haller has taken some work defending victims of housing foreclosures. One of his clients, however, has now been accused of an actual, and very serious, crime--murdering the president of the bank who was trying to take her home. Bestselling author Michael Connelley keeps readers roped in tight, as Haller describes with wit, honesty, and his special way with understatement the courtroom drama. And a robust cast of characters keep things constantly exciting.
