Hieronymus Bosch is also the main character
in a number of Michael Connelly murder mysteries
, including The Black Echo
, The Black Ice
, The Concrete Blonde
, A Darkness More Than Night
(my favorite, of the admittedly few I've read), City of Bones
, Angels Flight
, Trunk Music
, and The Last Coyote
. I believe that's all that are currently out, though not necessarily in the order written.
Going mostly by the name Harry
, Bosch is named after the artist
, whose work plays a role in A Darkness More Than Night.
Most of Connelly's work consists of Bosch mysteries, though he has written a few others, including Void Moon
and Blood Work
(which is currently (2002) being made into a movie
starring Clint Eastwood
Bosch is an LAPD detective who has a severe distaste for authority; when we meet him in The Last Coyote, he has just been suspended from the force and sent to a psychologist for throwing his boss though the window in the front of his boss's office.
