A Decade of Covering Cops and Killers
Add to Wish List
From #1 bestseller Michael Connelly's first career as a
prizewinning crime reporter--the gripping, true stories that
inspired and informed his novels. Before he became a
novelist, Michael Connelly was a crime reporter, covering
the detectives who worked the homicide beat in Florida and
Los Angeles. In vivid, hard-hitting articles, Connelly leads
the reader past the yellow police tape as he follows the
investigators, the victims, their families and friends--and,
of course, the killers--to tell the real stories of murder
and its aftermath. Connelly's firsthand observations would
lend inspiration to his novels, from The Black Echo, which
was drawn from a real-life bank heist, to Trunk Music, based
on an unsolved case of a man found in the trunk of his Rolls
Royce. And the vital details of his best-known characters,
both heroes and villains, would be drawn from the cops and
killers he reported on: from loner detective Harry Bosch to
the manipulative serial killer the Poet. Stranger than
fiction and every bit as gripping, these pieces show once
again that Michael Connelly is not only a master of his
craft, but also one of the great American writers in any form.
