I have been a fan of Connelly since day one and own every book and have watched every 'Bosch' show. I am an avid reader with over 100 books per year; fiction and non-fiction. Connelly has always been my favorite fiction and I look forward anxiously for each book. I was doing well with this book until I got to the part where Micky turned political and insulted at least half of the readers of this book. When I want to read a book on politics then that is what I pick up. When I want to escape from politics and the problems of the world then I pick up fiction and find myself often re-reading Connelly. I used to watch sports to escape, as well, but no longer do so because they have turned political. How sad that my favorite writer of fiction and one of my favorite characters decided to insult me and turn my reading experience into a political statement. As for the book, it was ok. Not one of Connelly's best For any liberals reading this post who feel the need to attack me for stating my views, don't bother. You have called me names and tried to shame me for over four years so I am used to anything you have to throw at me now.
