Michael Connelly is not only a great writer but a great guy. He’s gone out of his way to be helpful to me, even writing a blurb for my first hard-boiled crime novel, Rogue Island. Here’s what he said:
“Writing with genuine authority, a dose of cynical humor, and a squinting eye on the world, Bruce DeSilva delivers a newspaper story that ranks with the best of them.”
He’s also the person who handed me the Edgar Award for that novel at a ceremony in Manhattan a couple of years ago. So it was great to run into him again over the weekend at Bouchercon, the big crime writing conference in Cleveland.
Michael was excited about the pending release of The Black Box, the latest book in his great series featuring a Los Angeles homicide detective named Bosch. You can learn more about Michael, and his new book, here.
Cliff Walk is the second crime novel in my series featuring Providence, Rhode Island investigative reporter Liam Mulligan. The first not only won the Edgar but was a finalist for the Anthony, Barry, and Shamus awards. Reviewers say Cliff Walk is even better. You can purchase the Mulligan novels here.
