  • PRAISE FOR THE OVERLOOK:

    "Connelly succeeds, again, at creating a first-rate crime novel--fast-paced and dizzying. . . . Connelly, once again, has hit a home run." (Denver Post).

  • "Connelly's work has it all--sharply drawn, engaging characters, snappy dialogue and a plot that moves like a shot of Red Bull." (San Francisco Chronicle).

  • PRAISE FOR THE LINCOLN LAWYER:

    "Mr. Connelly hurtles into the realm of the legal thriller with excitingly renewed energy and a full bag of tricks." (New York Times).

  • "If Bosch is our detective, Connelly is our laureate, proving again that popular fiction at its best . . . is also literature." (Los Angeles Times).

  • "Michael Connely's twentieth novel as narrated by newcomer Peter Giles is a humdinger....Gile's hoarse, whispery voice crackles when he's Bosch and is authorative as Haller.  Despite their differences, the story resolves in a way that makes listeners eager for the next installment, especially if it's performed by Peter Giles."
