Summary
The best-selling author of crime novels such as The Closers and Trunk Music demonstrates how his years as a crime reporter in Florida and Los Angeles contributed to the creation of vivid details in his novels, of not only the villains and heroes, but of the investigations and stranger-than-fiction crime scenes. Simultaneous.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: 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 listener past the yellow police tape as he follows the investigators, the victims, their families and friendsand, of course, the killersto tell the real stories of murder and its aftermath. Connellys 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 bestknown 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. Connellys reporting is filled with captivating people, vivid atmosphere and the telling clues that take the reader into the mindset of an investigator. 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.
