The Concrete Blonde is the third novel written by Michael Connelly, and the third to feature LAPD detective Harry Bosch. The book was published in June of 1994, and was nominated for the 1995 Dilys Award, though it lost to Janet Evanovich's One for the Money.

The book was dedicated: "This is for Susan, Paul and Jamie, Bob and Marlen, Ellen, Jane and Damian."


The courtroom drama of Concrete Blonde would serve as part of the basis for the first season of Bosch.
