So I've been talking about Connelly and his work a lot lately, with people who aren't necessarily seasoned readers of his crime fiction. It reminded me of the power of his books, and the impact of reading his Edgar Award-winning first one, Black Echo.
So here's a link to Connelly's website, the portion that describes his first book, Black Echo: http://www.michaelconnelly
Although it's hard to find nice-condition copies of this 1992 book, Kingdom Books has a decent hardcover reprint right now: http://www.abebooks.com/se
Reminder: Lea Wait will be at Kingdom Books on Sat. 6/25 at 11 a.m., featuring her new Down East Maine mystery, Shadows of a Down East Summer. She's bringing some Homer Winslow artwork with her, a great reflection of the novel's turning points. Reserve a signed copy by calling 802-751-8374 or drop us an e-mail at KingdomBks@gmail.com. Glad to mail the books if you can't be here in person (but it's much more fun to be here!).
