From Connelly's first career as a prizewinning crime reporter--the true stories that inspired and informed his novels. Covering the homicide beat in Florida and Los Angeles in vivid, hard-hitting articles, Connelly leads the reader past the yellow police tape as he follows the investigators, the victims, their families and friends--and, of course, the killers--to tell the real stories of murder and its aftermath. Connelly's firsthand observations would lend inspiration to his novels, from The Black Echo, which was drawn from a real-life bank heist, to Trunk Music, based on an unsolved case of a man found in the trunk of his Rolls Royce. And the vital details of his best-known characters, both heroes and villains, would be drawn from the cops and killers he reported on: from loner detective Harry Bosch to the manipulative serial killer the Poet.--From publisher description.… (meer)

Crime Beat is a collection of journalistic crime articles written by Micheal Connelly during the 80s and early 90s before he became a full time author. They are rather interesting to read since they rarely read as a newspaper articles but as short essays about a person, a victim or a crime.

In many cases there is a final note attached to the articles telling the reader what happened in the years after the article was written.

The main reasons to read these articles is to learn more about the author and his inspiration, and to get an insight into real crime in the Los Angeles area. And several of the real crimes or criminals have clearly been inspirational in later Harry Bosch books. ( )

Non-fiction account of how he became a crime novelist. Fascinating insights into a real life crime incident. Moves to his approach to crime fiction then tapers-off into newspaper accounts of real life crimes. The last area slows way down and repeats the facts and is not really satisfying to read from there. ( )

I wanted to like this book. I truly enjoy Connelly's Bosch and Lincoln Lawyer series but this was so poorly edited it was unreadable. It was a series of 5-10 minute vignettes extracted from his experience as a crime reporter in Florida and California. It just does not work as a listen--the stories run together and after awhile; don't make much sense and can't be separated....chop....chop....chop....chop. What am I reading now? So, I gave up and did not finish. ( )

Connelly Non-Fiction 1984-1992
Review of the Little, Brown & Co. hardcover (2006)

Crime Beat collects a selection of writer Michael Connelly's crime reporting for the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel and the Los Angeles Times from the time before he began a successful crime fiction writing career with the release of The Black Echo - Harry Bosch #1 (1992).

The book is organized by themes such as Cops, Killers, and Cases, rather than chronologically. It conveys how Connelly was always building a human & character story into his straight crime writing, which is the feature that has continued into his fiction writing. I did not notice any particular inspiration for the later Harry Bosch novels, except for a case that was slightly similar to Trunk Music - Harry Bosch #5 (1997). ( )

Not the kind of book I normally read for pleasure. While interesting and memory provoking (if you're old enough) but just isn't a style I enjoy. ( )
