Harry Bosch by Michael Connelly
Harry Bosch is the protagonist in a series of crime fiction/police procedural novels by American novelist Michael Connelly. Readers might be more familiar of Connelly’s work due to the movie about his character Mickey Haller, but make no (city of!) bones about it – the bread and butter of Michael Connelly, and his best character by far, is LAPD detective Harry Bosch.

Michael Connelly began the Harry Bosch series with the novel The Black Echo, which was published in 1992. The series is currently ongoing. Below is a list of Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch books in order of when they were originally released (which is the same as their chronological order):

    People have tried to get me to read this series. I started with City of Bones and it was alright, but it just seemed to be one long story with no cliffhangers or emotional peaks. Did I start in the wrong place?

    The books and the character of Bosch have a way of growing on you. Perhaps start with number 1 if you want to give it another go.
