I totally agree with you....
It is very, very strange.......
These kinds of novels sell better than all others.
They are particularly popular among women.
There are many women detective books where they encounter a lot of violence and the most heinous of crimes.
This stuff is VERY depressing.
Can't be good.
I had very mixed feelings about watching the last Bosch.
He is a very likable guy.....
This is no accident.
So is his daughter.
I like Mutt and Jeff
I like the gal who is Harry's boss.
Then, there are the regular bad guys who are good guys in disguise.
These people have been greatly humanized and this is how they snag you.
All of these people suck you in.....
It's all part of the formula.
I've been trying to come up with an alternative and haven't been able to do it.
