FACEBOOK: Harry Bosch

After having spent the past week or so binge-reading Michael Connelly books, I would like to tip my invisible fedora to • ••••••••••• (wherever she may be) for first drawing me into the dark and lonely world of Detective Harry Boche almost 15 years ago.

The thing I love most about Boche is also his great tragedy: that despite his sharp mind and unwavering committment to truth and justice, his almost pathological refusal to turn this objectivity inward is what keeps him from realizing the signicance of his “lost light,” and why it continues to prevail throughout the series as such a powerful metaphor.
