The latest Michael Connelly

I spent two days reading "The Closers": the latest book by Michael Connelly. While the writing isn't the best, he does a consistently great job with his characters and setting. After reading this series of books, I feel like I know Los Angeles intimately. The character of Harry Bosch seems to expand a bit with each book and the minor characters are always done well. Plus he earns the reader's interest with his attention to detail. You are down in the trenches with Harry - getting a coffee, driving the freeway, answering a cell phone call. It's all very real.
