I write award-winning historical romance about pirates, privateers, smugglers and the occasional possum.

The Black Box - Michael Connelly Harry Bosch is in fine form in this latest mystery. I like how Connelly has aged him in real time, and how Harry makes mistakes, but still has a passion for justice.The scenes between Harry and his teenage daughter are particularly well-done, and Connelly has said he bases some of that on his interaction with his own teenager. The cluelessness of a father stumbling his way through his daughter's adolescence rings true, and brings the humanity of the worn-down and battered LAPD detective to light.
