Read full description of the books:
Harry Bosch, policier à Los Angeles, enquête sur la mort par overdose d'un toxicomane. Suite à un appel anonyme, le corps a été retrouvé à l'intérieur d'une canalisation. Bosch reconnaît vite la victime, Billy Meadows. Jadis, il a combattu avec lui au Vietnam. Tous deux étaient des "rats de tunnel", chargés de "nettoyer" les galeries souterraines tenues par le Vietminh. Alors que la police s'apprêtait à classer l'affaire, l'inspecteur, convaincu qu'il s'agit d'un meurtre, va s'acharner à découvrir qui a tué son ancien compagnon. Bosch découvre que Meadows a participé au cambriolage d'une banque l'année précédente. Pour remonter la piste, il accepte de travailler avec un agent spécial du FBI, Eleanor D. Wish, dont le frère n'est jamais revenu du Vietnam.
Ce premier roman qui entame l'excellente saga de Harry Bosch, est déjà typique de l'univers de Connelly. Un policier obstiné et rétif à la hiérarchie, une intrigue bien agencée où chaque détail a son importance, et cette fois en toile de fond, les séquelles de la Guerre du Vietnam et de ses sordides trafics. --Claude Mesplède

Michael Connelly decided to become a writer after discovering the books of Raymond Chandler while attending the University of Florida. Once he decided on this direction he chose a major in journalism and a minor in creative writing — a curriculum in which one of his teachers was novelist Harry Crews.
After graduating in 1980, Connelly worked at newspapers in Daytona Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, primarily specializing in the crime beat. In Fort Lauderdale he wrote about police and crime during the height of the murder and violence wave that rolled over South Florida during the so-called cocaine wars. In 1986, he and two other reporters spent several months interviewing survivors of a major airline crash. They wrote a magazine story on the crash and the survivors which was later short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. The magazine story also moved Connelly into the upper levels of journalism, landing him a job as a crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, one of the largest papers in the country, and bringing him to the city of which his literary hero, Chandler, had written.
After three years on the crime beat in L.A., Connelly began writing his first novel to feature LAPD Detective Hieronymus Bosch. The novel, The Black Echo, based in part on a true crime that had occurred in Los Angeles, was published in 1992 and won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel by the Mystery Writers of America. Connelly has followed that up with 26 more novels.
Fifty-eight million copies of Connelly’s books have sold worldwide and he has been translated into thirty-nine foreign languages. He has won the Edgar Award, Anthony Award, Macavity Award, Los Angeles Times Best Mystery/Thriller Award, Shamus Award, Dilys Award, Nero Award, Barry Award, Audie Award, Ridley Award, Maltese Falcon Award (Japan), .38 Caliber Award (France), Grand Prix Award (France), Premio Bancarella Award (Italy), and the Pepe Carvalho award (Spain) .
