Abstract

An interview with American crime author Michael Connelly, exploring the role of crime narratives as outlets for critical engagement with the politics of the war on terror and the associated neoconservative narrativising of 9/11. The discussion principally delves into Connelly’s first two post 9/11 Harry Bosch novels; City of Bones (2002) and Lost Light (2003).
