The Harry Bosch formula seems to be:
- Start with a simple murder
- Layer in Harry's struggling (and often unrelated) personal relationships
- Throw in serious conflict between Harry and his police department superiors
- Complicate the murder threefold
- Tie it all together and package it up with a clever climax
A really great read. This is the second if his ooks I have read and find it even more fascinating. Fine character development which is often missing in crime and detective novels. The action never stops.
