I have just started a new crime/detective series by Michael Connelly: The Black Echo.
The novel’s lead detective is L.A. Detective Harry Bosch. Bosch was a former Vietnam veteran who served as a tunnel rat in the war.
He is called to the scene of a crime and discovers the body of a former associate veteran and tunnel rat. Not all the facts line up to be as easily written off as a drug overdose as the department wants to do, so Bosch continues his investigation.
A great read!
I think I have stumbled upon another intriguing detective series for my winter reading.
A unique main character… The story is driven by Kindred Spirit, a lone mailbox, on a North Carolinian beach.
Kindred Spirit is the repository of letters, cards, and essays of the locals and passersby. You visit the box, retrieve and read, and then replace… maybe inserting a letter of your own.
A writer visits the mailbox a reads a story of a one-weekend meeting of two vacationers. They are each at the beach for differing reasons: one is an American somewhat estranged from her on-again-off-again boyfriend at the beach for a wedding, the other is a nature preserve guide from Zimbabwe who is about to meet an unknown father.
Their attraction is immediate, but their lives has already been destined for others.
Even though I usually do not enjoy the classic romance novel, this one was worth the read.
