Today I’m focusing on music, Bosch books, and the Bosch spin-off coming next month.

What I’m Listening To:

I’m listening to Philip Wesley’s “Dark Night Of The Soul.”

I’ve been listening to solo piano music for many years. I find it soothing. No need for words. The music is the words and they tell the story.

In Music, Bosch Books & Bosch Spin-Off, this is the cover of Michael Wesley's CD, Dark Night Of The Soul

I finished “The Brethren” by John Grisham last night. And I’m next going to read Michael Connelly’s: “Lost Light.” This is his Bosch series that they made into a series.

It is #9 in Connelly’s Bosch series, and it continues where the TV series left off. There are 20 Bosch books in total.

I watched all the Bosch episodes but was left longing for more.

Book Summary:

When he left the LAPD, Bosch took a file with him: the case of a production assistant murdered four years earlier during a movie set robbery.

The LAPD thinks the stolen money was used to finance a terrorist training camp. Thoughts of the original murder victim were lost in the federal zeal, and when Bosch decides to reinvestigate, he quickly falls foul of both his old colleagues and the FBI.

When the private investigation enables him to meet up with an old friend, shadows from his past come back to haunt him . . .

Bosch Spin-Off:

Thankfully they are coming out with another series starring Titus Welliver (Bosch) called “Legacy.” It’s also written by Michael Connelly and is a spin-off of Bosch.

This show will make its debut on May 6.

“The series is based on Michael Connelly’s novel, “The Wrong Side of Goodbye.”

Bosch: Legacy catches up with the titular detective after leaving the LAPD. Bosch has now moved to the private sector as an investigator. He’s teamed up with former foe, attorney Honey “Money” Chandler (Mimi Rogers) to crack down on crime.

“Maddie Bosch (Madison Lintz) has decided to follow in her father’s footsteps and is a rookie patrol officer for the LAPD. Maddie will need to decide what kind of cop she wants to be when Bosch advises her, “it’s either a mission or just a job.” writes Lost Remote.

I’ll see how I like #9 and will probably then order the rest a bit at a time. I know I must have read Michael Connelly’s books before, as I’m an avid reader, but I just don’t recall.

However the Bosch series got me hooked.

The Call:

Over the weekend I watched “The Call” on Netflix. It was one of those thrillers that keep your heart racing, starring Halle Berry. It was made in 2013.

Movie Premise:

Halle Berry plays a 911 operator who takes a frantic call from a teenage girl who has been abducted. The girl is murdered. Jordan (Berry) knows she made one mistake and now feels responsible.

She takes a job as a training teacher for new 911 operators for a time. But then she gets back into the game as an operator herself.

A rookie operator takes a call from another teenage girl who has been kidnapped and is in the trunk of her kidnapper’s car.

The rookie can’t handle the seriousness of the call and Jordan takes over.

She keeps the girl on the phone throughout most of the movie. Jordan knows she can’t bear to live with losing another young girl while on her watch. So she goes above and beyond the call of duty to save her.

  1. After I watched all the seasons of Bosch, I made use of my local library and have read most of Michael Connelly’s books. What is kind of cool is as I read, I picture Titus Welliver as Bosch. His Lincoln Lawyer and Rene Ballard books are enjoyable also. The mystique of L.A. crime investigation intrigues me.

  2. Brenda since you are such a Connelly/Bosch fan (like me) you may enjoy John Sandford’s Virgil Flowers series. His earlier “Prey” books are good too.

  3. I LOVE LOVE LOVED all the Bosch TV show episodes. I too longed for more, each time one season ended! I was so glad to hear of the spin-off and look forward to it! I need to read the Connelly books as I’m sure they are really good. Bosch and his daughter make such a good team…. Honey was OK but just seemed too snooty to me.. but very talented in what she does.. so I’m sure they will work well together! Once I get into a good series like Bosch.. I don’t want it to ever end! “The Call” also looks like a good movie. Did you ever watch Cellular? It was an awesome edge of your seat thriller. Marilyn

  4. My love of 🎹 piano 🎶 🎵 music is from a young girl ,,,,, maybe 10 or 11.
    Best friend, her entire family plays instruments.
    Amy was in training for a concert pianist. I can remember all the beautiful melodies & sheet music she played.
    One if my favorites was Flight of the Bumblebee.
    I miss her music.
    Amazing how we remember all these lovely things.
    Fond memories.

  5. Brenda, I love Bosch books, tv series, audio books, etc. As he says…everyone counts or no one counts…I love that saying. And I am looking forward to the Legacy and have it on my calendar. Take care my friend.

  6. I watched the Bosch series and thoroughly enjoyed it. I wasn’t aware of Legacy coming out so will look forward to seeing it. I hope he incorporates his old partner in it somehow. I’m not much of a reader now due to cataracts. I find it frustrating to read. I need to address the surgery.
