About the Author
Praise For The Drop…
PRAISE FOR THE REVERSAL:
"Each of his books is so much more than the sum of its parts....Connelly writes true-to-life fiction about true crime. What makes his crme stories ring true is that they're never really over."
-Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Thank God for Michael Connelly....Connelly retains his journalistic gifts; his eye for detail is spot on....Taken together, his 22 novels form an indispensible, compelling chronicle of L.A."
-Jonathan Shapiro, Los Angeles Times
"Mr. Connelly, a former journalist, is a master of mixing realistic details of police work and courtroom procedure with the private feelings and personal lives of his protagonists, and of building suspense even as he evokes the somber poetry inherent in battling the dark side."
-Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal
"Another of Connelly's brilliant Los Angeles crime novels."
-Les Roberts, Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Connelly's prose is so smooth that it looks easy....The product of a master fully in command of his craft."
-Robin Vidimos, Denver Post
"Connelly knows his way around a police investigation, and he knows his way around a courtroom. This knowledge makes his stories believable while his writing skills make them come alive....An exciting writer and one we love to read."
-Jackie K. Cooper, Huffington Post
