A Tuesday Teaser from Michael Connelly

Last week I picked up the most recent novel by Michael Connelly. Though I had never read one of his books, his name did ring a bell. (I suspect I had read a teaser from one of his novels on a blog post linked to Teaser Tuesdays.) The thriller, The Black Box, appealed to me as I was in the mood for some fast-paced writing. The story did not disappoint as it was action-packed from end to finish.

The teaser I have chosen makes reference to the murder victim in the case Bosch, the protagonist, is working on in the story.

“Maybe it was the accompaniment of Art Pepper’s soulful saxophone, but as he painstakingly translated and read the stories and looked at the pictures, Bosch felt that he somehow grew closer to Anneke Jesperson. Across twenty years she reached forward with her work and tugged at him, and this made his resolve stronger. Twenty years earlier he had apologized to her. This time he promised her. He would find out who took everything away from her.” (p. 206, Hachette Book Group, 2012)

If you enjoy reading well written detective stories, then this tale is for you.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Hello Colline, this week it is just blogs.. Last night I thought about what I could read this week while I am at home, but am too exhausted to start anything. Have you read Minette Walters?


  2. I love Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch books (ok, make that all books), although I have been a bit tardy in getting to the newer ones.

    If you like this one, you should go back and read the earlier books in the series. He writes some seriously intense thrillers.


  3. I’m a great fan of Michael Connelly’s books Colline. If you haven’t tried it already, The Lincoln Lawyer is great. But the Harry Bosch series are all very enjoyable 🙂
