I am a long time fan of Michael Connelly and I think this is one of his strongest efforts yet. A very compelling, readable book!! Don't wait for the paperback and don't wait for anyone else to part with their copy to send to you. They're gonna read it and run down the street and lend it to their friends before they even think of mailing it to you.
Bosch and his partner, Chu, working in the LAPD's Open/Unsolved unit get a hit on one of the units cases. The DNA is match to a someone now in the penal system on a murdered female teen that occurred back in the late 80's. There is only one problem; the 'perp' was only eight years old when the victim was murdered.
As they set out to determine if there is a problem with the evidence Bosch gets called out, my special request, on a case at a well known hotel. Someone has jumped out of the window, or were they pushed? Bosch must navigate the tricky waters of this 'high jingo' case and seek the cause of the demise of the son of one of his old nemesis, now a LA City Council member with an axe to grind with the LAPD.
The leaps of intuition in this novel are quite believable and the author never disappoints. Easily one of the strongest titles in this series. I love the character development here with Bosch, Kiz, Chu and the young daughter Madeline Bosch. I see this series moving to the next generation in this novel and hope that Connelly and I are on the same page!
