I'm a fan of Connelly's fiction work so I thought I would give this a try. Is a collection of his articles as a crime reporter both in Florida and at the LA Times. Those familiar with his novels will easily see where he got a lot of his later fiction ideas from. Most of these nonfiction stories are good but a lot of the who/what/when/where of various crimes are repeated every few pages due to these being newspaper articles with their later follow-ups and conclusions. That gets old fast but the stories are interesting nonetheless. Good but not great.
