Knock-knock, said Susanne Valenti’s post. Who’s there, I replied. Why, it’s the Three-Day Quote Challenge … Or something like that.
You can find the new blogger in the WordPress universe here. Orange you glad you nominated me, Susanne?
In my second time through the quote game, I decided to go with words uttered in novels penned by a trio of my favorite authors.
I’ll wrap up here in day three with words from the latest Harry Bosch series novel, No. 19, from significant crime novelist Michael Connelly. The former police beat reporter for the Los Angeles Times started putting detective Bosch on the LA scene in 1992’s The Black Echo.
He’s been endlessly interesting since as the tough guy with a big heart he tries to hide, a love for jazz he doesn’t mind sharing with certain friends and a daughter who’s grown to wish to follow in his footsteps.
In 2014’s The Burning Room, veteran Harry is teamed with green detective Lucia, and he’s determined to make her the best she can be in all ways, including handling the — drumroll, please — press. So Connelly has Harry say: “Let me see your phone. You said you had to make a call when I went into the autopsy. I want to see if you called that reporter. I can’t have a partner who’s addicted to or feeding the media.”
Thanks again, Susanne. And please join in, anybody who feels the urge to share three quotes that move them with the world.
