Very well done. The change to the first person narrative worked for me. I always wondered how it would be if Bosch told the story, and Connelly pulled it off nicely. ( )

Another great detective Bosch book! In this novel it may seem a tad slow at the beginning since he is retired and working on a case that is 4 years old. Michael Connelly has always been very strong on continuity, ( )

Another great detective Bosch book! There is always unexpected twists and turns and characters who are not who they seem to be portrayed as. I love how Bosch seems to use old hard detective work and instincts to solve cases. ( )

I still enjoy the hard boiled detective novel, Harry Bosch being hands down my favourite ( )

You cannot read any Bosch novel out of order since Connelly flashes back often.

In this novel it may seem a tad slow at the beginning since he is retired and working on a case that is 4 years old. He has none of the normal detective tools available that would be available if he were not retired but he is driven to solve the crime. In typical Connelly fashion you follow Bosch as he puzzles out each clue and finds he is in conflict with the FBI and LA Police.

In this book more than any other (if that is possible) you get into the head of Bosch, you see his psyche at work, his thought process and logic... along with the help of friends.

This book more than some others has a very satisfying last 100 pages. All loose ends are tied together and "No Spoiler Here" but the ending is very emotional for Bosch lovers...'nuff said :) ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446611638, Mass Market Paperback)

The vision has haunted him for four years--a young woman lying crumpled in death, her hand outstretched in silent supplication. Harry Bosch was taken off the Angella Benton murder case when the production assistant's death was linked with the violent theft of two million dollars from a movie set. Both files were never closed. Now retired from the L.A.P.D., Bosch is determined to find justice for Angella. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear into the guilty, he's on his own. And even in the face of an opponent more powerful and ruthless than any he's ever encountered, Bosch is not backing down.

At the end of CITY OF BONES Harry Bosch quit the LAPD, but he's back in a new role, one that will give him more freedom to pursue the cases that compel him. When he left the LAPD Bosch took a file with him: the case of a firm production assistant murdered four years earlier during a $2 million robbery on a movie set. The LAPD, now operating under post 9/11 rules, think the stolen money was used to finance a terrorist training camp.… (more)
