In , another Bosch novel, Lost Light , was published. While writing he listens exclusively to instrumental jazz, though, because it does not have intrusive vocals, and because the improvisational playing inspires his writing.
The Closers , published in May , was the 11th Bosch novel. The book was made into a film in , starring Matthew McConaughey as Haller. After releasing Crime Beat , a non-fiction book about Connelly's experiences as a crime reporter, Connelly went back to Bosch with Echo Park After some editing, it was published as a novel in The Haller novel The Fifth Witness was published in The next Bosch novel was The Black Box Connelly's subsequent novel, a legal thriller, was a return to Haller: The Gods of Guilt When starting a book, the story is not always clear, but Connelly has a hunch where it is going.
Even events that might not be considered as world-changing are included in some of the books, because they are of personal interest to Connelly.
For example, in City of Bones , Detective Bosch investigates the murder of an year-old boy. This was written during Connelly's early years as a father of a daughter, and it hit close to home. According to Connelly, he didn't mean to write about the biggest fear of his life; it just came out that way. Detective Bosch's life usually changes in harmony with Connelly's own life. When Connelly moved 3, miles across the country from Florida , Bosch had some life-changing experiences that sent him in a new direction in the book written at that time, City of Bones.
According to Connelly, his "real" job is to write about Bosch,  and his purpose in bringing McCaleb and Bosch together in A Darkness More Than Night was to use McCaleb as a tool to look at Bosch from another perspective and keep the character interesting.
