Full Answer

While any of the books can be read on their own, readers who would like to read them in sequence may read the Harry Bosch novels in the following order: "The Black Echo," "The Black Ice," "The Concrete Blonde," "The Last Coyote," "Trunk Music," "Angels Flight," "A Darkness More Than Night," "City Of Bones," "Lost Light," "The Narrows," "The Closers," "Echo Park," "The Overlook," "The Brass Verdict," "Nine Dragons," "The Reversal," "The Drop" "The Black Box," "The Gods of Guilt," "The Burning Room" and "The Crossing."

The Mickey Haller books were published and may be read in the following order: "The Lincoln Lawyer," "The Brass Verdict," "Nine Dragons," "The Reversal," "The Fifth Witness," "The Gods of Guilt" and "The Crossing."

Mickey Haller's appearance in "Nine Dragons" is a minor one, and Harry Bosch appears only very briefly in "The Fifth Witness" and "The Gods of Guilt," which take place after "The Reversal" and "The Black Box," respectively. Both characters play significant roles in "The Brass Verdict," "The Reversal" and "The Crossing."
