When she was a child she was a survivor of arson at a daycare center that killed several children. Harry does what he can to try and get them the old arson case without mentioned that there is a conflict of interest. In the end, Harry closes several cases but becomes even more disillusion about being a cop and making it to the end of his retirement.

The Burning Room: This one reads like three stories that were abandoned, rehashed and bundled together to meet a publishing deadline.

Not up to the usual standard. ( )

Solid Bosch novel. Seemed to end too soon. Also looks like there will at least one more Bosch novel and possibly more.

I look forward to another, I'm a Bosch fan. ( )

A new novel, and Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch is still working on the LAPD Cold Case Unit, but now he has a new partner, Lucia Soto. Bosch himself is liberally strewn with emotional and emotive baggage amassed over his thirty years as a detective, and Soto, although less than a year into the job, has already gathered enough of her own. In her previous police posting she had killed two criminals after she and her previous partner had been caught in the midst of an armed robbery.

Bosch and Soto are assigned to a cold case with a difference. Ten years previously, Orlando Merced, a guitarist in a mariachi band, had been shot while his group was performing in one of the cities plazas. Though seriously wounded, Merced had survived the shooting, but the bullet had been lodged too deeply within his body for it to be removed, and he had been left paralysed. When he died ten years later, there was no hesitation in deeming it a clear consequence of the shooting, meaning that the incident became a homicide case. At the time, police investigations had stalled, and the assumption had been that Merced was an unintended victim of a gang-related drive-by shooting. Merced had been taken up by an ambitious local politician who featured him heavily in his campaigns to become Mayor of Los Angeles. Merced’s eventual death is, consequently, a politically charged event, and there is immense pressure for the reinvestigation of the shooting to bring in a swift conviction.

As if that were not challenging enough, Bosch finds himself drawn into Soto’s personal quest to explain a traumatic and tragic incident from her own past, and the two investigations proceed in tandem.

A lot of the standard elements of any Bosch story are there – attempts by his superior officers to rein him in; conflicts with his teenage daughter; strained relationships with the press; outrage from public officials. Yet although we are on what might seem familiar ground, Connelly never makes this seem repetitive, and takes care always to make these twists seem fresh. He also writes effectively. Having started out as a journalist, Connelly knows how to trim the fat off his prose, and how to reach out and grab the reader’s attention. ( )

Bosch has a new partner and they are working on the cold case of a man, recently deceased, killed by what they had assumed to be a random shooting. Things get complicated as Bosch delves into areas the powers-that-be would prefer he not venture.

Connelly has written another excellent police procedural. A very enjoyable audiobook even if Connelly himself (or his editors) don't know the difference between imply and infer.

The ending is a bit of a hill-hanger leaving the reader to wonder where Connelly intends to take Bosch next. (Of course, if you've read the later books in the series, you already know.) ( )

Book description
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, Harry Bosch catches a case in which the body is fresh but any other evidence is virtually nonexistent.

Now Bosch and his new partner, rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Starting 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 reveals that this shooting may have been anything but random.
