This is one of the more satisfying and well written Bosch novels! ( )
  sberson | Apr 7, 2014 |
Harry Bosch solves a 20 year old murder coming out of the riots in LA. A Danish journalist is killed in an alley during the riots and Harry is assigned to review the case. A series of breaks leads out of the LA area. Well written, good plot. ( )

Typical Connelly: unputdownable. Bosch is at his usual self, cranky, soft-hearted, a nuisance to the top brass. Closure is what it's all about for him. And he gets it, as usual. The plot gets rather conventional in the end and never really grips you thriller-like. But Bosch keeps you with him every step of the way, from steakhouse to Jazz CDs. ( )

very good classic bosch trying to solve a murder that is twenty years old of a journalist from thegulf war. Maybe not as exciting as some others - but still classic harry ( )

Started well, was very engaged with situation, characters, plot etc. But then it fizzled out for me and the ending was just
too convenient, too pat This is only my 2nd Michael Connelly novel (the 1st being 'The Lincoln Lawyer') so I will try one or two other books by him before I decide what I think about him as a writer. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the 'black box,' the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.… (more)
