Michael Connelly


Event Status

In the pantheon of contemporary crime writers, the name Michael Connelly is a perennial favourite. A former police reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Connelly has been thrilling readers since 1992 with his 15 acclaimed Harry Bosch thrillers, including his most recent, Nine Dragons, and several stand-alone bestsellers including The Poet.

More recently, he’s turned his attention to the courtroom end of the genre, beginning with The Lincoln Lawyer, a legal thriller which introduced LA defence lawyer Mickey Haller, that has just been adapted for the screen. One-time president of the Mystery Writers of America, Connelly’s books have been translated into 35 languages and have won numerous awards. His latest in the Mickey Haller series, The Fifth Witness, delves into the US foreclosure crisis, with characteristically murderous results.

Michael Connelly is in Australia as a guest of the Wheeler Centre and the Sydney Writers’ Festival.
