- The latest of Le Carre's spy novels is au courant. It features Issa who is Chechen, Annabel who is a young German attorney, and Tommy Brue who is a British investment advisor. All are resident in Hamburg as are the hosts of characters who contribute to the action, the plot, and the resolution. Once started reading one does not want to leave this book.
- Have you met Mickey Haller, a defense attorney, and Harry Bosch, a police investigator? These two memorable Connelly figures are at their best as they join forces to solve a crime in the author's latest page turner set in Los Angeles.
