Another great one from Michael Connelly. In fact, one of the best of his that I've read. If you are from the L.A. area you will especially enjoy following Harry Bosch all around town and picturing it in your minds eye. The fact that I frequently drive to work right past one of the murder scenes depicted in the book kind of tickles me, I must admit. Even if you aren't familiar with L.A., the mystery will really grab you. It's really a modern day noir thriller.

Harry Bosch is on trial for killing an unarmed man believed to be a serial killer. However, a new body has been found and Harry is starting to believe that maybe he did kill an innocent man. This book jumps back and forth between the trial and the murder investigation. An awful lot of tedious court room drama and some exciting police work balance out this story. Another great Bosch tale.

If you love Harry Bosch, you love this one. He is about to be discredited again, but discovers a new twist on a 4-year-old case that redeems him. As usual, in his private life, Harry means to open up and have a "real" relationship, but his job leaves him little time to tend to such matters.
It's another good read from Connelly -- suspenseful and multi-layered.

Four years ago, L.A. Police Detective Harry Bosch shot and killed Norman Church, a man who he believed was a serial killer. Nicknamed "The Dollmaker", Church was thought to be responsible for the rape and murder of eleven prostitutes. Now Harry is a defendant in a wrongful death suit brought by Church's widow. Things are not looking good for his case when a new body is discovered. It looks like the work of The Dollmaker, except that the body is only two years old. Is there a copycat? Did Harry shoot the wrong man?

This is the third book in Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series. The mystery is engrossing. I loved the mixture of courtroom drama and hard-boiled detective investigating another murder. And I really like the character of Harry Bosch. He is smart, honest, and just wants to do what is right. The villain in this book was a complete surprise to me. I love when that happens. I highly recommend this book and suggest that you read the series in order. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

This was an intricate story with lots of twists and turns which holds your interest until the very end. I love the relationship between Harry and Sylvia. Bosch is such a complex character which makes the books very interesting and entertaining. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Good book. I'm beginning to think Michael Connelly doesn't write anything BUT good books. This is another investigative/murder who-done-it type book where Harry Bosch is the man to call when you want to get things stirred up and see things start to happen. Harry may not have have the answers but he's stubborn and he'll stick to a case until he figures it out.
