Connelly never disappoints. His Harry Bosch books carry the least amount of 'repeat material' of any I've read, each one is fresh and markedly different from the one before with plot twists and characters so alive you want to punch some and hug others. This tale gets far afield from the usual L.A. scene as the mystery behind an apparent suicide of a fellow cop is probed by Harry. Don't tell anyone you have it figured out until you've read the last chapter or you'll make a fool of yourself!
I love the Harry Bosch series. He's a great homicide detective in LA with a lot of baggage from his Viet Nam past. This novel involves the death of two LA cops and Harry catches the case. He follows a bloody string of murders from Hollywood down to the back alleys south of the border. This is a complex and compelling murder mystery in which Harry is likely to be one of the victims. Fast paced and well written.
Love, love, love nearly anything he writes. I was even intrigued enough to check out the artist Bosch's paintings and some of his history. Connelly's Harry Bosch is a very flawed character, and I love him. This is a good one.
Starts small and then slowly introduces the complications, complexities and angles. Then piece by piece it unravels those complexities and puts them together into a dramatic conclusion. A good, clever detective novel.
3.5 stars out of 5
Second in the Harry Bosch series with Connelly's usual fast moving pace and twists and turns. Bit of a surprize at the end.
