I loved it, it's a lot like the Poet. But if you're waiting for a wiser, more patient Harry Bosch who has learned his life's lessons about getting along with people and his co-workers, you should keep waiting.

Great Harry Bosch book that has wild, convoluted twists. Just when you think you have a handle on who is doing what, something else happens and your theory is shot to pieces. Great read.

Harry Bosch should be the poster boy for American police detectives. He works in LA and is the consummate professional. Every story (this is the 12th) reinforces the notion that Bosch was born to be a detective.

Thus, it is a shock to Bosch to find that he and his partner missed a clue in 1993 that allowed a serial killer to continue his awful murders. The serial killer murdered at least 9 more after 1993.

Midway through the book, the accused killer comments about feeding the dog. One of the things the perp learned while a ward of Los Angeles foster care system was that each of us has desires and limitations. Our character is determined by which of those competing limitations and desires we choose to feed. In other words, we all have choices; and the choices we make create our reality.

Connellys tightly constructed plot is amazing. It takes Harry Bosch time to get to the heart of the problem and he solves the case even though it costs him dearly.

My first story by Connelly was THE BLACK ICE; Ive been an avid fan ever since.
