American history books often portray the Spanish missions of California as havens of civil coexistence between the Spanish conquistadors, the Catholic priests, and the native Indians who had long inhabited the area. In reality, the "civilized" Christian life that was forced upon the natives was steeped in cruelty and violence. Debra Barton's The Cry of the Lone Coyote is an unflinching portrayal of the devastating effects that the Catholic mission life and the colonization of California had on Native Americans during the nineteenth century. As told through three generations of an Indian family, this story tells of a native people enslaved in forced labor and prostitution and subjected to rape, starvation, and mob killings. The story of Cheveyo and Domona, their daughter, and their grandson during the establishment of the mission at San Jose and the lawless greed of the gold rush is a chilling reminder of America's violent past. Like The Trail of Tears-the tale of the decimation of the Cherokee people-The Cry of the Lone Coyote is crucial reading for understanding Native American history.

The Last Coyote: LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch is suspended from the force for attacking his commanding officer. Unable to remain idle, he investigates the long-unsolved murder of a Hollywood prostitute. Trunk Music: Harry returns to the force to investigate the murder of a movie producer with Mafia ties. Up against both the LAPD's organized crime unit and the mob, Harry follows the money trail to Las Vegas, where the case becomes personal. Angels Flight: The murder of a prominent African-American attorney who made his career suing the police for racism and brutality means that Harry's friends and associates have become suspects; and he must work closely with longtime enemies suspicious of his maverick ways to investigate them. Together for the first time, these three chilling, pulse-pounding novels chart the volatile, breakneck career of the sleuth the New York Post calls "the quintessential mystery book hero" and prove that "Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch novels are the most impressive body of work by any writer of crime thrillers now active" (Washington Post).
