I've had Amazon Prime for a while - I do a lot of streaming and also enjoy the free 2-day shipping on things I buy. It's definitely worth the price for me. I'm on episode two of Bosch now and am enjoying it. Haven't read any of the books.

Read all the books, thought this was just okay. Blood Work was much better in my opinion.

I checked online at Amazon for the Kindle books. 18 or 19 in the series? The cheapest were $5.99 for the Kindle edition. Guess I'll be checking at the local library........

Love the show, btw. It brings many of the elements of the books alive.
I did not know the link was to the interviewer personality...

Try this link... "IMDb: What to Watch" Bosch (TV Episode 2015) - IMDb

...it goes to the Bosch page. Scroll down a bit to 'Videos | Photos' and you should/might see a film clip. The interview is 7:44 minutes. You should be able to click the video link.

Harry is named for Hieronymous Bosch the painter--
his mother had a print/copy of one of Bosch's works when Harry was a child and he (in the books) has a copy as well--I think it is the one about Hell but not sure
and I think but again am not certain that the painting his mother had was related in some way to Harry's father--the lawyer who was also father of the character in Lincoln Lawyer--that Connelly also created/writes about...

Both Bosches are intrigued by death, suffering/pain of the living, and the price for being human--
so guess that is something Connelly wanted to stress with his character by giving him a unique name

The house was exactly what I thought it would be, near Mulholland and hanging over the Hollywood Freeway.
It makes so much more sense for him to love vinyl. That Marantz is a really nice turntable... we recently upgraded our audio system and I considered getting something vintage like that, but opted for something new instead.

My vision for his house was something not as contemporary - the location and view were precisely what I had in mind, but for some reason I just didn't think there would be walls of windows like that. Of course, with a view like that, how could there not be? If I recall correctly, wasn't his house condemned at one point due to earthquake damage? So, it makes sense that he would rebuild it to showcase that view.

I may go back and reread some of the books. The characters are really like old friends in an odd way.

I always thought he should have a turntable and records, too. I just read about this new turntable from Pioneer, sort of a replacement for the Technics 1210. You can get it with a cartridge for under $699. PLX-1000 - Professional Turntable | Pioneer Electronics USA

What turntable did you buy?

7143 Woodrow Wilson Drive is the address of Harry Bosch's house. I always imagined something cantilevered had to be this modern. Harry Bosch's House? - MichaelConnelly.com Message Board

The Last Coyote (1995) is the book that introduces the Northridge earthquake (January, 1994) damage that happened to Harry's house. The Last Coyote (1995) - Novels - MichaelConnelly.com

I've reread a lot of them. I lived in Los Angeles once, and I miss it.

On the Bosch TV series wikipedia page, it says:
Quote:
The show takes its inspiration from three of Connelly's novels: City of Bones (his twelfth novel and the eighth about Bosch), Echo Park (his seventeenth novel and the twelfth about Bosch), and The Concrete Blonde (his third novel and the third about Harry Bosch).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bosch_%28TV_series%29

I heard Harry use the phrase "lost light" somewhere in Bosch. The book of that name begins where the show left off, as he resigns from the LAPD. http://www.michaelconnelly.com/novels/lostlight/ This would seem an obvious place to start up again.
