Maybe Connelly is tired of the Harry Bosch series. The Closers fails to deliver the punch of earlier books in this series. It was much more a police proceedural rather than an action book; the plot though interesting was easy to see through to the killer. I had the feeling that Connelly dashed this one off so he could move on to other things.
Nevertheless, Bosch fans will want to read this. Harry's back after three years of retirement (and a failed marriage). He's paired with Kiz Rider, but Edgar is on his own with Hollywood Division. We also see Harry's nemesis Chief Irvin S. Irving. In short Connelly delivers, but fails to hit a knock-out punch.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book-if you like his others, you will like this one.
All Harry Bosch books are great. I now have my Hubby hooked after only one. Great Read!
Solid but unmemorable. Harry Bosch returns to the police department and works a cold case murder. Good by mystery standards, but not as clever or gripping as most of the other books in the Connelly series.
3 stars out of 5
This is truly a spell binding thriller....!
This book was great! I loce Michael Connelly and this book was great. I couldn't put it down!
I will be reading more awesome book...
enjoyed reading this book
The death of a teenaged girl almost two decades ago comes back to haunt LA and Detective Harry Bosch in this spellbinding thriller. In LA 1988, a sixteen yr old girl disappeared from her home and was later found dead of a gunshot wound to the chest. The death appeared to be a suicide - but some of the evidence contradicted that scenario and detectives came to believe this was in fact a murder.
great read, Harry Bosch is back.....this time he is back with the LAPD working the cold case files.
Thriller/mystery novel. Det Harry Bosch back at work on closing unsolved cases.
Good author - good story. Well worth the time on a winters evening...
Harry Bosch and Kiz make a great team. Fast paced story, great read.
This is a "must" read. Great!
This was a very good book. The latest in the "Harry Bosch" series.
GREAT BOOK BY MICHAEL CONNELLY.
Detective Harry Bosch is out of retirement and back with the LAPD working on cold cases. Digging up the past may heal old wounds--or expose new ones.
My husband read this book, and I was not interesed in reading it.
