Some writers are associated with specific places. An obvious connection would be Raymond Chandler writing about Los Angeles. Another obvious one would be Michael Connelly writing about Los Angeles. So it's no surprise that Connelly recommends a story by Chandler in this edition of Celebrity Picks. But which story does he recommend and why? And who else does he love? Check out all of Michael Connelly's picks below. You couldn't find a better author to recommend great LA Stories.
Since it would be impolite for Connelly to mention his own book, I'll point out that he has just started a new series set in LA. It was published too late to make our Best Mysteries & Thrillers of the Year So Far (it would have been a cinch), but it's one of my favorites crime novels of the year so far. The Late Show centers around a brand new character in Connelly's universe, a woman named Renée Ballard, a detective working the night shift in Hollywood.
Now, here are Michael Connelly's picks:
