Introducing Michael Connelly’s short story titled Switchblade.

An offer from the Michael Connelly website to give early bird buyers of his new novel a teaser was just too good to pass up. Nick has been a fan of Michael Connelly books for years now so receiving the Switchblade short story as a teaser was perfect. Scroll down to see us pose with the author during a meet & greet in Chicago.

For those of you who pre-ordered Michael Connelly’s new novel ‘The Gods Of Guilt’ the author presented you with the short story to the book titled ‘Switchblade’.

Switchblade short story for The Gods of Guilt
Switchblade is a 28 page short story that gives some lead way to his character Harry Bosch, who makes a small appearance in his newest Mickey Haller novel. It’s a quick read that sets up the scene for the two characters to meet. Character cross overs are consistent with many of Michael Connelly’s novels.

This short story telling dynamic offers the reader a glimpse of other main characters that he writes about, and adds a level of continuity to all the books that he’s written.

The switchblade short story takes place over a period of time. A chance job offers someone the opportunity to sway events towards an ulterior motive. Why this particular unsolved case lands on Harry Bosch’s desk is made clear by the end of the story. The investigation comes into focus when DNA from a switchblade knife is found, which leads into the title.

Michael Connelly books have entertained readers for over 20 years now.

It didn’t take long before Nick was hooked, he came across his first Michael Connelly books during a period of unemployment and wrote his own short story. We had a chance to meet the author at a large Barnes & Noble book store in downtown Chicago during his book tour for ‘The Scarecrow’. He was very personable and informative!

  1. The first Michael Connelly book I read was The Concrete Blond in 1994. Since then I have purchased every Michael Connelly hardback as a 1st edition, including the first two books. I have a complete collection. I enjoy Michael’s books as much as Raymond Chandler’s. However, the various short stories that have been published as ebooks I have never read or been able to purchase in printed form. Please, please consider publishing them in print!

    1. David,

      Thanks for stopping by. I’m a big Michael Connelly fan myself and have all of his 1st editions as well. It would be cool if they collected all of his e-book short stories and published them. Who knows, maybe he’ll see this suggestion and take it up with his publisher! ;)
