“What was the inspiration behind the creation of this book?”
Michael Connelly has admitted in many of his interviews that his characters share a few similarities with himself. However, since The Drop is a crime novel, its plot is primarily based on true stories as they are explored with the imagination of the writer.
As Connelly conducts research for his books, he very often finds himself interviewing LAPD officers. During one of his interviews, one officer mentioned the case of the Grim Sleeper serial killer. The police had found a huge number of photos in the serial killer’s apartment and they had to find out what the fate of the women in the pictures had been. Thus, they started a massive and thorough investigation process in their attempt to solve the case.
This is a case that is mentioned in The Drop. As the writer himself has mentioned, many of the officers that he interviews are strong fans of his works. More often than usual, these officers tend to make suggestions and recommendations to him that are very helpful in making the plot thicker...
Don't miss out! It's highly recommended.
if you're a real literature junkie or a diehard fan of the novel (I am both) it's really a must read. Highly recommended.
