Hear from the man who's sold 74 million books worldwide

Join NOTED Live for an evening with Michael Connelly, in association with Allen & Unwin.

Enjoy a glass of wine and nibbles before hearing #1 international best-selling crime writer, Michael Connelly, in conversation with Listener columnist and award-winning local crime writer, Paul Thomas.

The modern-day king of crime will be talking about his legendary Harry Bosch and Lincoln Lawyer crime thriller series, his move to Hollywood as an executive producer for TV shows, as well as his popular podcast Murder Book

Connelly has been writing about crime for decades, notably as a Los Angeles Times reporter, then making his mark in the crime fiction universe with The Black Echo, the first in his famed Bosch series. He has since gone on to write more than 30 books, selling 74 million copies worldwide.

The Philadelphia-born writer has won numerous awards – in fact, nearly every major mystery writing award including the most lucrative, the $214,000 RBA Prize for Crime Writing.

He's also found success in Hollywood; in 2011, Matthew McConaughey starred in the movie adaption of Connelly's novel, The Lincoln Lawyer, which is this year being developed into a CBS drama by Big Little Lies' creator David E. Kelley.

Hosting Connelly is Paul Thomas, who was once described as “the Godfather of New Zealand crime fiction” for his groundbreaking series featuring Māori detective, Tito Ihaka. Thomas has won numerous awards, including the Ngaio Marsh award.

Connelly has just released a new book in the Harry Bosch series, The Night Fire, and is heading our way, so don't miss your chance to hear from one of the world's most prolific writers in conversation with one of New Zealand's best crime writers, at this NOTED Live event.
