Michael Connelly's series have been successful with no diminishing quality. I think part of that success has been the characters who pop up each in other's series. It's fascinating to see Harry Bosch appear in a novel mostly about Mickey Haller or Terry McCaleb. Connelly has created a rich and stark world where we see each beloved series protagonist through the eyes of other leading characters.

As much as I love James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux and hate to see him ever leave us, I think that series would have benefited by Connelly's treatment.
