Are you a Michael Connelly fan? With the Harry Bosch books and Mickey Haller (aka The Lincoln Lawyer), not to mention Amazon Prime’s Bosch TV series, Michael Connelly is the man behind some truly iconic modern crime and thriller characters.

Michael’s US team recently ran a survey asking which book his fans would recommend to someone who’d never read a Connelly. The winner was The Black Echo. We want to create a whole new army of Connelly fans, so we’re giving away 50 pairs of books – that’s one for you (to either catch up on, or to re-read), and one to give to someone who you think would love Connelly and Bosch.

The Black Echo introduced us to LAPD detective Harry Bosch. A body has been found in a drainage tunnel off Mulholland Drive, Hollywood. It looks like a routine drugs overdose case, but the one new puncture wound amid the scars of old tracks leaves Bosch unconvinced. To make matters worse, Harry Bosch recognises the victim. Billy Meadows was a fellow ‘tunnel rat’ in Vietnam, running against the VC and the fear they all used to call the Black Echo. Bosch believes he let down Billy Meadows once before, so now he is determined to bring the killer to justice. ‘One of the most authentic pieces of crime writing I’ve ever read. It is an extraordinary story, one that engages the reader on the first page and never lets go’ James Lee Burke
