A good, behind-the-scenes look at the details involved in solving cold cases.
Maybe Connelly is tired of the Harry Bosch series. The Closers fails to deliver the punch of earlier books in this series. It was much more a police proceedural rather than an action book; the plot though interesting was easy to see through to the killer. I had the feeling that Connelly dashed this one off so he could move on to other things.
Nevertheless, Bosch fans will want to read this. Harry's back after three years of retirement (and a failed marriage). He's paired with Kiz Rider, but Edgar is on his own with Hollywood Division. We also see Harry's nemesis Chief Irvin S. Irving. In short Connelly delivers, but fails to hit a knock-out punch.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book-if you like his others, you will like this one.
Working in the Open/Unsolved unit of the LAPD, Harry Bosch has to solve the murder of a teenage girl in 1988. Amazing how once overlooked details spring to life and how forcefully some people try to keep them covered. A good read.
This book is one from the Harry Bosch series written by Michael Connelly. Harry is called back to join the elite Open/Unsolved Unit. He and his partner are assigned to solves murders whose investigations were flawed, stalled, or abandoned to L.A's tides of crime. Connelly keeps you in suspense until the very end.
