Connelly excels again. This is the best of the Harry Bosch series so far. Great for mystery/detection fans.

“Teaching Ramanujan was like writing on a blackboard covered with excerpts from a more interesting lecture.”
Lawrence Young

Mario Puzo
“The lawyer with the briefcase can steal more money than the man with the gun.”
Mario Puzo, The Godfather

“The painter is not simply someone who looks and who sees. Above all, the artist is someone who exposes a personal vision by rendering it visible. The painter shows or allows the seeing of "something" that without him, without his intervention, would not be seen. He manifests through his work a possibility of seeing that would otherwise remain latent. In other words, painting is an art that reveals or unveils the world from an angle that the world itself does not present to us. Painting creates. It does not limit itself to imitation or reproduction. Any desire to confine painting within the limits of déjà vu would be a gross misunderstanding of the essence of what painting is. Painting allows us to see that which without it would never be seen.”
Marcel Paquet, Botero

Francis Bacon
“If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.”
Francis Bacon, The Advancement Of Learning

John Dewey
“As we have seen there is some kind of continuity in any case since every experience affects for better or worse the attitudes which help decide the quality of further experiences, by setting up certain preference and aversion, and making it easier or harder to act for this or that end.”
John Dewey
