Every now and then I seem to have the need to read a detective novel, and Michael Connelly often hits the spot. This book has its hero, retired detective Harry Bosch, as its narrator. This slightly hard-boiled character finds an old unsolved case has got under his skin, but in post 9/11 America, he finds himself in serious conflict with the FBI who warn him off in no uncertain terms. By the end, so many disparate threads had been introduced I had a job keeping up, and it seemd to have as many special effects as a James Bond movie. A good enough read, but a book I was happy enough to come to the end of. ( )

(2003)Very good police procedural about retired Harry Bosch trying to resolve an old murder case that involved a theft of $2 million from a movie set and involves 2 former cops who also kidnapped an FBI agent who had an angle on solving the theft.

One of my favourite authors and it's impossible to say which of his Harry Bosch titles I liked most - but this has got to be right up there. Steady, painstaking, driven by his unswerving mission to get justice for the dead. ( )

What a wild read. In this installment (Harry Bosch Book 9), Harry now has his private investigator license and is on a mission to solve one of the cases he was unable to close while on the job.

With Mr Connelly's trademark gritty characters, sun baked locations, and a collection of law enforcement officers unwilling to listen to an "old timer", this story was nothing that I expected.

A multi million dollar heist, an officer murder and money marked by the FBI leads to a thousand directions this case can go culminating in a shocking conclusions.

So far, I have read a plethora of Harry Bosch and Bosch Universe books, I have loved (and devoured) each one, although I wish I had read them in the order of B Universe rather than HB World as the splits and convergences are interesting but leaves some questions.

It’s Michael Connelly and it is Harry Bosch, what more needs to be said?
This time Harry is retired and bored, so he begins work on a cold case
And as usual all hell breaks loose. LAPD, and the FBI are suddenly very interested in what Harry is digging through.
I realized when I got to chapter 7 of this book, that it was better than 25-50 percent of the books I have read this year.
If you haven’t read Michael Connelly, you don’t know how great a book series can be, and he has multiple series, all excellent. ( )
