In the latest Harry Bosch mystery, Michael Connelly once again demonstrates why he’s the best in the business. In The Drop, Harry is approaching retirement age, and is also the single parent of a 15-year-old daughter, who now lives with him. Both these things have made him more thoughtful, and perhaps more melancholy about good and evil, right and wrong, etc. Bosch’s overall humanity is precisely what makes him such an engaging, complex and fascinating character. This time around, Harry is running two cases simultaneously; one having to do with the perhaps-suicide death of the son of Irwin Irving, an old LAPD nemesis, and the other a cold case from 22 years ago involving the rape and murder of a teenage girl. As Harry sorts through the cases, he also sorts through himself, where he’s at and where he wants to be. A top-notch, sharply intelligent crime novel that’s not to be missed.
Some people like to travel by train because it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of an airplane.
I think my pilot was a little inexperienced. We were sitting on the runway, and he said, “OK, folks, we’re gonna be taking off in a just few—whoa! Here we go.”

Just found the worst page in the entire dictionary. What I saw was disgraceful, disgusting, dishonest, and disingenuous.
