Harry Bosch is a likable Homicide detective cop; this story is about finding the bones of a child buried in a shallow grave in the hills of L.A. Harry and his partner have to first identify the victim then find the murderer. This was my first Connelly book and I enjoyed it. I definitely will look for more from this author.

I could not put this book down. Stayed up 'til midnight two nights in a row and had to finish it to find out "who done it". Excellent book by a great author.

On a New Year's Day, Detective Harry Bosch fields a call that a dog found a bone.....a bone that the dog's owner,a doctor, feels certain is a human bone.

Bosch investigates,and that chance discovery leads him to a shallow grave in the Hollywood hills,evidence of a murder committed more than twenty years earlier.It's a cold case,but it stirs up Bosch's memories of his own childhood as an orphan in the city.He can't let it go.Digging through police reports and hospital records, tracking down street kids and runaways from the 1970's,Bosch finds a family ripped apart by an absence.....and a trail,ever more tenuous,into a violent,terrifying world.
As the case takes Bosch deeper into the past,a rookie cop named Julia Brasher brings him alive in the present in a way no one has in years. Bosch has been warned about the trouble that comes with dating a rookie, but no warning could withstand the heat between them....or prepare Bosch for the explosions when the case takes a hard turn. A suspect bolts, acop is shot, and suddenly Bosch's cold case has all of L.A. in an uproar....and Bosch's fighting to keep control in a lawless and brutal showdown.
Drawing on the "precision-tooled twists" and "wellspring of authentically lurid detail"( Los Angeles) that have made him one of the fastest-selling novelists at work today,Michael Connelly has written a riveting,hard-edged,and unforgettable thriller.

This was one of tirst Michael Connelly books that I read and he sucked me right in. I am usually the type of person that needs to read the books of a series in order but I don't feel it is necessary with this author. Each of his books tell enough about him and even though the author layers his charachter with each book I don't feel like I am missing anything skipping around. Also I have become such an addict that I will read whatever comes first from PBS/ My favorite book though is still Black Hole where he goes into Harry Bosch's experiences as a tunnel rat in Vietnam....nuther book. Anyways. I am glad this author is so prolific as it will keep me happy for at least another year or so.
