The Closers, by Michael Connelly

Page turner police procedural. First one I read about the L.A. detective Harry Bosch. I’ll take Chandler, Chester Hines, or George Higgins I think. Serviceable, but I found the prose super-clunky and the characterization wooden. I can see the appeal. At the end I turned the pages so fast because I couldn’t wait to get out of the book, not because I was appreciating it.
