In Boyle Heights, gateway to East Los Angeles, sits the 1889 landmark “Hotel Mariachi,” where musicians have lived and gathered on the adjacent plaza for more than half a century. This book is a photographic and ethnographic study of the mariachis, Mariachi Plaza de Los Angeles, and the neighborhood. The newly restored brick hotel embodies a triumphant struggle of preservation against all odds, and its origins open a portal into the Mexican pueblo’s centuries-old multiethnic past. Miguel Gandert’s compelling black-and-white images document the hotel and the vibrant mariachi community of the “Garibaldi Plaza of Los Angeles.” The history of Hotel Mariachi is personal to Catherine López Kurland, a descendant of the entrepreneur who built it, and whose family’s Californio roots will fascinate anyone interested in early Los Angeles or Mexican American history. Enrique Lamadrid explores mariachi music, poetry, and fiestas, and the part Los Angeles played in their development, delving into the origins of the music and offering a deep account of mariachi poetics. Hotel Mariachi is a unique lens through which to view the history and culture of Mexicano California, and provides touching insights into the challenging lives of mariachi musicians.

À l’unité des Affaires non résolues du LAPD, les victimes meurent rarement une décennie après le crime. C’est pourtant ce qui arrive au mariachi Orlando Merced : le musicien succombe à ses blessures dix ans après avoir reçu une balle lors d’une fusillade apparemment sans autre but que celui de faire respecter la loi des gangs et de terroriser la population. L’inspecteur Harry Bosch hérite donc d’une affaire avec un cadavre certes encore frais, mais aux pistes quasi inexistantes. Rien de mieux pour un vieux de la vieille comme lui qui doit enseigner le métier à sa nouvelle coéquipière Lucia Soto. Étoile montante du service après s’être comportée de façon héroïque au cours d’une fusillade, elle n’a néanmoins aucune expérience véritable du travail d’enquête et c’est à Bosch qu’on demande de la former avant de prendre sa retraite. Décision de la hiérarchie. Mais l’affaire se révèle politiquement très « sensible » : la balle qui a mis tant de temps à tuer le joueur de vihuela n’aurait pas été tirée au hasard. Sans même parler du fait que ce crime en cache un autre aux enjeux encore plus importants : la mort de plusieurs enfants lors d’un incendie qui, lui, s’est déclenché vingt ans plus tôt. Tout risquer pour trouver la solution ou, plus sûrement, laisser dormir des secrets bien compromettants, tel est le choix qui s’offre à ces deux inspecteurs aux destins bouleversants.

10,000 Steps a Day in L.A.: 52 Walking Adventures is for urban adventurers with a passion for healthy living who are also hungry to explore L.A.’s hidden, unsung, and sometimes quirky side. This unique guidebook provides everything readers need to venture out and tackle the city’s 500 square miles. The book is based on a concept that first took hold in Japan—that if people walked 10,000 steps each day, they would burn 20 percent of their caloric intake through that activity alone. Now an ingrained part of the American lifestyle, the 10,000 steps phenomenon is taking the country by storm; it is now a recognized daily goal by a number of major insurance companies like Kaiser Permanente and health institutes such as the World Health Organization, the U.S. Center for Disease Control, the U.S. Surgeon General, and the American Heart Foundation. In this first-ever book to explore the 10,000 steps concept in the City of Angels, these walks take readers through the terrain that makes Los Angeles the envy of many a metropolis—beaches, mountains, rivers, and reservoirs, not to mention the nation’s largest urban park, Griffith Park—all while immersing them in the city’s history and lore, offbeat locales, and popular landmarks. 10,000 Steps a Day in L.A. promises three things: 10,000 steps in each walk, a blueprint for doing it each weekend of the year (52 walks equals a year’s worth of weekends), and a sense of fun and discovery about L.A. that will only make the 10,000 steps goal that much easier to attain. Readers need bring only their feet—pedometers optional.

The new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly follows Detective Harry Bosch and his new partner as they investigate a recent murder where the trigger was pulled nine years earlier. In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Beginning with the bullet that's been lodged for years in the victim's spine, they must pull new leads from years-old information, which soon reveal that this shooting may have been anything but random. In this gripping new novel, Michael Connelly shows once again why Harry Bosch is "one of the greats of crime fiction" (New York Daily News).
