Halloween Bingo 2018 - Modern Noir

The Last Coyote - Michael Connelly

This was my bingo pre-read and definitely ticks all the noir boxes.

 

Murdered prostitutes, shady politicians, equally shady cops, over-keen young journalists, the mean city streets (in this case LA), and our hero - the jaded detective, who lives by the motto, "everybody counts, or nobody counts". Who also in typical noir fashion gets bashed on the back of the head by an unseen assailant.

 

This is the fourth in the Harry Bosch series, and it's the one that has made me decide to keep reading.
