LAT scribe-turned-author Michael Connelly's latest Harry Bosch mystery, The Closers, comes out May 15. On his website, Connelly narrates a five-minute video tour of downtown sites mentioned in the book, including the Avila adobe, the old federal building and Union Station. It begins with Connelly being praised by Chief Bratton at an LAPD graduation ceremony.
May also means that the next Jack Liffey mystery from John Shannon is ready. The newest is Dangerous Games, in which a girl disappears from an Owens Valley reservation and turns up "in the seedy underbelly of L.A."
