Michael Connelly, whose novel Hardcover edition.
One of the author's best work, August 5, 2003 Reviewer: yslai33 from Ozone Park, New York USA I am on a Michael Connelly run as I am doing some summer reading and this year, decided to read the bulk of his works. I read THE CITY OF BONES last year and was so-so about the whole uproar. Well, Mr. Connelly has definitely proven why he is one of the foremost authors in this arena. ANGELS FLIGHT brings together all sorts of topics that all readers of the detective/mystery/thriller novel is interested in: intrigue, the police brotherhood, betrayal, social cynicism and commentary, murder in all of its horror and ?glory,? and most important of all, Detective Harry Bosch. This time, he is married and watching his marriage fall apart, as L.A is falling apart after the horrific murder of one of its most brutal and ruthless civil attorneys is violently murdered in cold blood. The city is blaming cops all over the place, and again, Harry is singled out to solve the murder or be framed as the fall guy. Unlike THE POET which has a rather implausible finale, or CONCRETE BLONDE which pulls a long-standing character into a rather comprised role of the sociopathic serial killer, ANGELS FLIGHT creates a myriad of characters that may easily be a killer. It is suspense writing at its best and definitely stands alone as one of Connelly?s best work.
