Further Information
Michael Connelly is not only one of the world's best selling mystery-thriller writers but also one of the best exponents of what might be described as the modern genre. The writing style is highly polished and treads a perfect balance between being very 'easy' to read but still having substance, good plotting and decent character depth. His main series characters are Harry Bosch, Terry McCaleb and The Poet. Terry McCaleb was brought to the big screen by Clint Eastwood in a Hollywood movie, whilst getting something of a mixed reaction from fans of the books the author was realistic and accepted that once he sold the rights he gave up any control. Interestingly he blurred fact and fiction by actually introducing the existence of the film into subsequent books, a nice touch. We cannot recommend this author too highly, to both readers and collectors of first editions. Those seeking 1sts will find the first three the most difficult, later titles saw large print runs due to increasing popularity so are consequently fairly easy to find and currently offer great value for money. For US collectors it is worth noting that some of the later titles were actually first published in the United Kingdom.
