I recommend any book by Michael Connolly. I've read them all and very few authors keep me on the edge of my seat like he does. I have yet to read one of his books that I wished I hadn't. I buy each as soon as it comes out. You won't regret reading anything by this author.

I was a bit disappointed in the last few Bosch novels but after reading "Echo Park" Michael Connelly and Harry Bosch are back with this excellent and well told tale. Harry Bosch has returned from retirement and is now working in the Open Unsolved Unit. The book opens with Harry working on a case that involves the murder of a young beautiful girl. Harry still remains a believable character. He has his flaws but overall he is a pretty decent fellow. In other words he's the same old Harry that I have always enjoyed reading about. Echo Park continues Harry's journey into the dark side of men and once again he gets knocked around, but his persistence keeps him faithfully at doing his job. In summary, I give Echo Park a enthusiastic endorsement.

Yep. I thought I had it solved too. But didn't. My first Connelly book. Dialog was real. Harry was real. Couldn't put it down. More Connelly in my future.

Lucky Listeners! Whether your preference is for an Abridged editon or the Unabridged version of Michael Connelly's latest electric thriller, both are read by estimable stage, film and television actor Len Cariou. A Tony Award sits on his mantel for his incomparable performance in Sweeney Todd, and his film credits include such hits as About Schmidt, Shall We Dance, and Secret Window. His television perforamces are both acclaimed and numerous - The West Wing, The Practice, Law and Order, and more. It has been said that in suspense author Connelly has no superiors - Len Cariou has none in the dramatic arts. With 'Echo Park' Detective Harry Bosch is back, much to the joy of fans. It's his 12th thriller and neither time nor familiarity has dulled his appeal. One more tribute to Connelly's talents! It's a cold case, the murder of Marie Gesto, one that Bosch hasn't been able to forget. Now, it's obvious that another detective has an interest in the Gesto case. In addition, a man is willing to plead guilty to her death and a number of others in order to avoid the death penalty. Case closed? With Connelly and his pen at the ready - no way. It's a circuitous, fascinating trip to the finish - don't miss it. - Gail Cooke

I am fairly new to Michael Connelly's books, maybe 18 months or so. However, the Harry Bosch series are my favorite. Although I didn't start them in order, it doesn't seem to matter. I am loving every one of them.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Echo Park. It's one of those books that you don't want to put down. The plot had a unique twist to it and there was a nice balance of drama and comedy. The characters were believable and the reading was easy. I'd never read anything by Michael Connelly before, but I really like his style.

Very compelling story and characters. Would read more from this author along these lines. I like the strong detective with a measure of angst on the side. Sort of the misfit, but the hero that still has a sensitive, romantic side. I like the author's complex development of characters that really adds depth to the stories he tells.

This my 4th Michael Connelly novel and I enjoyed it very much. The thing I like most is that the plotting is so meticulous; there is no pat ending just because he reached the requisite number of pages. It is plausible and realistic. As you read, you can easily see how Harry and you the reader are thrown by the very cleverly crafted red herrings. The dialog is delighful; these are characters you care about. Read this book. You won't be disappointed.
If you like books that are well written, edgy and a little out of the main stream, try 18 seconds and samaritan.

Having read several books by Connelly, I bought this one expecting something a cut above the usual crime thriller genre. Although the plot is somewhat interesting, the characterizations are weak and there is just too much tough cop talk and unbelievable heroics. The narration is not very good, and the personification of the girlfried FBI agent is absolutely grating. The love story is trite and contrived. I did finish it, but it was a chore to get through. Definitely not recommended.

This is my first Connelly book that I have read. I have watched the TV Series and liked it so decided to try Connelly. I have been looking for good mystery books and without too much description in the "violent department " as I am sensitive to it. I will now be reading Connelly's books as I enjoyed this one and read it in 2 days. Very good book and good writing, and excellent plot. Definitely recommend it.

Not a page turner until three quarters of the book but still a good thriller.

Another great Bosch novel with a truly sinister bad guy case with corrupt political overtones.
