Michael Connelly says : “A lot of people come here because, wherever they came from, it wasn’t working for them,” “California is a place you can remake yourself. It has the mythology, the lore of the Wild West — there’s almost a palpable sense that anything can happen. L.A. in particular is a city where everybody comes from somewhere else. And more specific to the crime novel, lots of people come to attain a dream, and only a few make it. There’s definitely the sense of haves and have-nots. There’s a line of friction between those, and that’s where a lot of good crime fiction comes from. Not to mention real crime” External link

Michael Connelly says : "I don't write about Jack that often. It's been three times over 20-some years.

That's all it was, that little blip of a story just really intrigued me. I started looking into who's monitoring this stuff, and that's how books start for me" External link
