I loved this book! It was fast paced with lots of twists and turns and a marvelous surprise ending. I could not put the book down, by the time I was about 3/4 of the way through.
To me, Harry Bosch suffers a deep melancholy from the tragedy of his young life when his mother was murdered and his time in Viet Nam as a 'tunnel rat'. Harry Bosch's personal mission is to 'speak for the victims' and do whatever has to be done, including putting his life and career in jeopardy to bring justice for the victims.
If this is your first Michael Connelly novel, I'm sure you will be a fan for life!
Finely crafted and elegantly polished, this is about as good as a procedural gets. You're in good hands with Michael Connelly and when he's sculpting Bosch, very few can do it better. Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.
Complex and hard to put down. Bosch is on trial for the wrongful death of a suspected serial killer, but another murder occurs that has the signature touches of the dead killer. The investigation is detailed, lots of twists and turns and red herrings. Very compelling story.
Have to agree with kwan of Calgary and other commenters - - high courtroom drama mixed with typical Bosch detecting.
A great mix of courtroom drama, personal struggle, and detective work. Bosch faces self-doubt about his motives while gradually peeling back the layers of the mystery to reveal the true dark heart. I felt like cheering at the surprising conclusion.
A gripping courtroom drama threatens the career of police detective Harry Bosch as he pursues a serial killer of sex trade workers in Los Angeles. Edgar Award winning author Connelly once again delivers tight plotting, authentic police procedures and strong dialogue, reaffirming his standing as the current master of this genre.
