"The Black Box" is author Michael Connelly's 25th novel in 20 years, his latest thoughtful and well-plotted yarn with recurring character Harry Bosch, a brooding Los Angeles street cop.
Connelly has been producing Harry Bosch books at an indefatigable clip since 1992, the year he transitioned from a crime reporter at the Sun Sentinel and Los Angeles Times to a mystery-fiction writer. So Tuesday's author chat at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale is something of a homecoming for Connelly, who will reminisce about his Fort Lauderdale days at 5:30 p.m.
South Florida mystery-fiction columnist (and Sun Sentinel contributor) Oline Cogdill will lead a Q&A with the author. Admission is $20 to $85, $10 extra for the afterparty, and includes a raffle to name a character in a forthcoming Connelly book. Proceeds benefit the local watchdog organization Broward Bulldog.
