Michael Connelly is an excellent writer and Harry Bosch is a wonderful character. This book takes him on his premiere post-police days adventure and sets the tone for books to come. Very good read.
You've gotta love Harry Bosch...even with all of his flaws. While Harry is retired from the LAPD, that doesn't stop him from investigating a crime that took place 4 years ago and a scene that has haunted his dreams. He incurs the wrath of the LAPD and the FBI when he starts snooping into the cold case files, but that makes him more determined to find the killer of Angela Benton and the thieves that took the 2 million dollars from the movie set where she worked.
Michael Connelly is a truly great writer and this book is not a disappointment.
The vision has haunted him for four years--a young woman lying crumpled in death, her hand outstretched in silent supplication. Harry Bosch was taken off the Angella Benton murder case when the production assistant's death was linked with the violent theft of two million dollars from a movie set. Both files were never closed. Now retired from the L.A.P.D., Bosch is determined to find justice for Angella. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear into the guilty, he's on his own. And even in the face of an opponent more powerful and ruthless that any he's ever encountered, Bosch is not backing down.
Connelly is one of the finest authors working in the genre. This one is no disappointment. Don't miss reading the entire Bosch series!
