      I’ve been reading Michael Connely’s books for over 25 years–Harry Bosch series and Lincoln Lawyer series plus others.

      Amazon combines different plots and characters from his 30 books.

      I like Titus Welliver (In fact he is now doing the audio versions of Connelly’s new books.) But Bosch is a very complicated figure and Welliver seems to have ONE LOOK. Angry all the time.
      Now in Season 3 there is way too much of the daughter, Maddie. I REALLY don’t want to hear her back talking her dad as she does on TV. In fact I now fast forward through every scene with her in it as their dialogue does NOTHING to advance the plot. She is just irritating. If I had talked to my parents the way Maddie does, I’d be sent packing.

      And Titus? Maybe another emotion other than doom and gloom?

    Bosch, baby, there is NO substitute.

    If you are a Michael Connelly buff as I am (Bosch, Lincoln Lawyer, and others) the first two seasons of Bosch can be troubling.
    Connelly IS the technical director on the Amazon series but they mix plots, add incorrect plot lines–some 180 degrees from the books.

    I would say Read the books…Connelly is EASILY the best crime writer today (after 30 best selling but ALSO very well written intelligent novels)

    The Bosch TV series should be seen as a separate entity. Very good..but jarringly inconsistent with the novels.

    Yes! Watch the series–Titus Welliver is excellent as are the supporting actors.

    But also–read the books as they are awesome.

    • KLS says:

      I agree. But a lot of movies/series do this as well: piece together bits from different books to hopefully, make a better story on screen. Lee Child’s (Jack Reacher) and Jeffery Deaver’s (Lincoln Rhyme) books have been treated the same way. I personally only like Connelly’s Bosch books and I like the series adaptation just fine (though I think the book rendition of Bosch (the cop) is a lot rougher around the edges than the TV version).

      • nuschler12 says:


        Well I watched the first two episodes and they have taken cases from SIX different books. The women all look alike–good looking Latinas in tight suits–there’s juvies ripping off johns, a homeless vet capped, (gotta learn about Bosch’s vet experience!) return of Black Widow, TWO trials, a murder of a guy Bosch was filming, some guy gets Bosch’s prints from a bar glass and plants them and….then the stand alone book Poet and Blood Work show up! ARRGGHH!! 8 BOOKS?? In the books Bosch can’t handle a flip phone, send a text, or operate a laptop. NOW he’s got remote cameras inside and outside an apt??

        I said ENOUGH!

        I turned off TV, and opened up the latest Connelly book to read.

      • nuschler12 says:

        BTW, I got turned onto Jack Reacher while I was in Paris in 2010 and a MME on the Metro showed it to me (in French!). Came back to the states and started reading in English. Great stuff..THEN Lee Child gets 5’4” Tom Cruise to play 6’4” 230# Jack Reacher?

        Then did it again? I quit Reacher and Child!

        BTW as a vet, I NEVER could get past the fact that Reacher was a junior grade MP. Really about the lowest MOS in the military..about equal to a Hull Tech or Boson’s Mate. 13 years in and quits.

        NEVER made any sense. Then remembered that Lee Child is 6’5” British and never served in the military. He wrote TV scripts in the UK. And just HOW many times can you read about Crown Vics?
