The Last Coyote - Harry Bosch #4

The Last Coyote - Michael Connelly, Dick Hill

This is the 5th Michael Connelly book I've read, and I'm starting to think he's a bit of a genius. I loved the portrayal of the post-earthquake LA, and the resonances I get with the ongoing situation in Christchurch (where 2 1/2 years later there are still ongoing conflicts over red-stickered homes, Govt forced acquisition of land, school closures and amalgamations, and so forth). I loved the journey he took us on with Harry, back into his past, and the fact that he wasn't scared to leave him in an uncertain place (tho given there's another 14 books after this one I figure Harry will not be hanging up his badge. This book seems full of emotion, full of relationship stuff as well as the standard danger, excitement, red herrings, dead ends and other real wild things.

The performance by Dick Hill as the reader for this audiobook is excellent as usual.

I'm going to have to start reading these a bit faster than one per year, or I'll never catch up...
