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.
This is yet another great read about Detective Harry Bosch, who has rejoined the force after 3 years of retirement. He is assigned to the Open/Unsolved Unit where he investigates a 17-year-old murder of a 16-year-old girl. He is re-partnered with his former partner Kiz Rider. Michael Connelly continues to write engrossing stories that are tough to put down. I'm looking forward to reading his next one, "The Lincoln Lawyer" which I've already obtained through PBS! Paul C.
Harry Bosch is always entertaining! Highly recommend all in the series. Helps to read in order!
