Only available for $2.99 as an ebook, "Suicide Run," is not only a good inducement for the upcoming full Bosch novel, "The Drop," but the three stories are pretty good in their own right.

Think maquette: a small scale model or rough draft of an unfinished architectural work or sculpture. Each of the three stories in "Suicide Run," though not fully realized, gives insight into Connelly's creative and constructive process. Though published previously, we know that they take place in the past simply by the revisiting of past Bosch partners (Edgar and Kizz) and allies (McCaleb). As in Connelly's full pieces, we could see that each of these stories could have been interwoven into a larger piece.

I haven't completely fully enjoyed where Connelly has been taking Harry in the most recent editions of the series. This look back reminds one of Bosch at his clever, resourceful, yet dry, core.
