  1. My lifelong career as a verbatim stenographic reporter involved writing live testimony and producing large quantities of double-spaced pages of transcript each day, allowing little time to enjoy a good novel. Since retiring and discovering Michael Connelly’s Mickey Haller/Bosch novels, I find I cannot put the books down , reading cover-to-cover in a short time. I never knew what I was missing. I plan to delve into Harlan Coben’s works, as well as works by the other five like authors. Thank you for this great list of future enjoyable reading.
