Because Seabiscuit was so great and the reviews for Unbroken universally good, my husband purchased the latter. It's the next book on his pile to be read; I will read it right after he is done. I look forward to it.
In my opinion, Michael Connelly is second only to JLB. I actually began with Connelly, reading them out of order. The first I picked up randomly from the library was The Last Coyote, which blew me away. It is still my favorite, perhaps an emotional connection as a first love. I believe it is next on your list. Among the stand alones, I particularly love Void Moon, told in the voice of the protagonist, who is a woman. Connelly gets women. There is a scene at the end (no spoilers here; I'll wait for you to read it yourself) that brought this into stark relief. It reduced me to tears.
Bosch is very much like Dave Robicheaux, a good man with many faults who sometimes makes bad choices and suffers great angst over those decisions. (Plus he has the added attraction, for me, of being a jazz lover. As you no doubt have noticed, the books are replete with scenes of Harry soothing himself with jazz...and booze. I had the good fortune of being a contest winner on the MC site and won a CD of jazz selection that Harry loves). Yet Dave and Harry are very different kinds of men. Long ago, I wrote to Jane Davis, manager of the MC site, that Harry in many ways reminded me of Dave, but that of course the books are altogether different. Her response was that MC would be flattered as one of his great influences is JLB; MC was honored that JLB wrote a blurb for one of his books.
As with JLB, Connely's books are virtually the only ones I purchase these days, and in hard cover!
