Connelly never disappoints. His Harry Bosch books carry the least amount of 'repeat material' of any I've read, each one is fresh and markedly different from the one before with plot twists and characters so alive you want to punch some and hug others. This tale gets far afield from the usual L.A. scene as the mystery behind an apparent suicide of a fellow cop is probed by Harry. Don't tell anyone you have it figured out until you've read the last chapter or you'll make a fool of yourself!

I love the Harry Bosch series. He's a great homicide detective in LA with a lot of baggage from his Viet Nam past. This novel involves the death of two LA cops and Harry catches the case. He follows a bloody string of murders from Hollywood down to the back alleys south of the border. This is a complex and compelling murder mystery in which Harry is likely to be one of the victims. Fast paced and well written.

Love, love, love nearly anything he writes. I was even intrigued enough to check out the artist Bosch's paintings and some of his history. Connelly's Harry Bosch is a very flawed character, and I love him. This is a good one.

Starts small and then slowly introduces the complications, complexities and angles. Then piece by piece it unravels those complexities and puts them together into a dramatic conclusion. A good, clever detective novel.

3.5 stars out of 5

Second in the Harry Bosch series with Connelly's usual fast moving pace and twists and turns. Bit of a surprize at the end.

Connelly's detective Harry Bosch is as good and flawed as ever in this 2nd "Harry Bosch" series. A really good story that's both sad and good at the same time. A different twist from the 1st story which I think is good - it doesn't depend upon the reader having to read the 1st book in the series.
Once the reader gets into the story, ideas form as to who the culprit is. But don't quit there - you'll be surprised when you get the the end.
Another great read from Mr. Connelly!

The 2nd book in the Michael Connelly Harry Bosch series...and it was excellent...a little dark, maybe, a little sad...but then it is about police work. Had a good ending.

Didn't much care for this one, I like Harry Bosch but this one was just too complicated and hard to follow and I don't like stories about Mexico or cartels or anything like that, so I quit about half way through from lack of interest.
