This is the one that introduces us to Hieronymous (Harry) Bosch, detective with the LAPD. Connelly lays the foundations of Harry’s character in this novel while telling a great crime story too. He sets up plenty of plot lines for future novels and brings us one of the best detective series in crime fiction, to date. As with all these series it helps a little if you start form the beginning but each book gives enough information to enjoy on its own. If you haven’t tried Connelly yet then do give him a go, as he is a great story teller.

If you like Michael Connelly you might also like to read books by Lisa Gardner, John Grisham and Harlan Coben.

Synopsis

The Black Echo by Michael Connelly

LAPD detective Harry Bosch is a loner and a nighthawk. One Sunday he gets a call out on his pager. A body has been found in a drainage tunnel off Mulholland Drive, Hollywood.

At first sight, it looks like a routine drugs overdose case, but the one new puncture wound amidst the scars of old tracks leaves Bosch unconvinced.

To make matters worse, Harry Bosch recognises the victim. Billy Meadows was a fellow 'tunnel rat' in Vietnam, running against the VC and the fear they all used to call the Black Echo.

Bosch believes he let down Billy Meadows once before, so now he is determined to bring the killer to justice.
