There is a logic to genre fiction that has become successful enough to promote a series, in this case Michael Connolly’s Harry Bosch novels and his previously standalone novel, “The Poet”. When these precursor novels are yoked together, then villains have to become more villainous, especially when they are serial killers, and heroes have to become more angst-ridden and their home-lives more contorted.
