After finishing The Black Echo, by Michael Connelly, I went into a big library boom and collected A Mammoth Murder and Murder Among the OWLS, by Bill Crider, Murder in the North End, by Rochester native Patricia (PB) Ryan, and The Colorado Kid, by some guy named Steve. They were all enjoyable, but I gotta say that I liked Pat's book the best. It's not because of her location, either. She writes a good story with well-drawn characters and beautiful period detail (1870s). I just learned, also, while looking for these images, that the sixth book in her "Gilded Age" series is coming out in December, entitled A Bucket of Ashes. Here's a look:
Edit: I just learned from Patricia's site that this is going to be the last in the series, and that all threads will be tied up nicely.
