As always Harry Bosch amazes me..he almost got caught in a pickle he couldn't get out of. Always the one to not back off..Everyone counts or nobody counts. ( )

Harry keeps finding the wrong ant hills to kick over as his career slowly winds down as he works the cold cases. The case he works on this time goes back to the LA riots and now as he finds his suspects they have powerful juice. Harry is also working on his relationship with his daughter and he feels almost as he can never quite get it right and also doesn't seem to do everything right with his new girlfriend as well. A decent book but not one of my favorites. ( )

Contrasts Harry, who wants to solve cases to bring closure to the victims and their family, and the higher ups who care more about numbers and politics. Harry's daughter is growing up and Harry has a girlfriend.

You can guarantee that once you start a Michael Connelly book you won't want to put it down and this was no different. Harry Bosch is back in Open Unsolved and assigned a case dating back to the LA riots of 1992 when a Danish journalist was killed. As usual Harry doggedly pursues his investigation revealing all manner of skeleton, despite being investigated by Professional Standards. ( )

Enjoyable if not the best of the Bosch books. I like the introduction of the daughter. Though the end did get a bit "Jack Reacher".
I have now read all the Bosch books so will have to wait for the next one :( ( )

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)
