Connelly and Crais for certain, both set in Los Angeles. So good that you should find the first novel each wrote, and read them all in recommended series reading order. (pub date)

Best of all, all of these books are available at all but the smallest public libraries.

A.E. Maxwell's Fiddler and Fiora series, set in Crystal Cove, California.


I believe they are out of print, though.

Dean Koontz

Most of his early books took place in southern California. He himself lives in Newport beach. Some of his novels that frequently reference the area are "The Husband", a really good crime thriller and "Tick-tock", a monster tale (a really good read)

Agree. The Bosch series is very good. I started with Trunk Music way back when and have read every Bosch novel ever since.

Sue Grafton's books are IMO some of the best mysteries written. They're set in southern CA.
