Harry Bosch is up to his neck in a case that has transfixed all of celebrity-mad Los Angeles: a movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. Meanwhile, Terry McCaleb is looking into another murder that just may link to Harry.
Harry Bosch gets together with Terry McCaleb of Blood Work to solve a crime that threatens both their lives. Jack McEvoy from The Poet plays an integral role. A superb job of bringing together Connelly's intricately woven LA universe.
I loved this book! Terry McCaleb returns to profile a murderer in a plot that twists and turns with such speed and grace you can't put it down! Wonderful characters and smart dialogue make Connelly one of my favorite authors. A great read!
Excellent book! Bosch is profiled as the bad guy and eventually hires McCaleb, the profiler, to find out what he "missed" during his examination of the case. Lots of surprising twists and intrigue in this one.
Terry McCaleb, the retired FBI agent who starred in the bestseller "Blood Work," is asked by the LAPD to help them investigate a series of murders that have them baffled. They are the kind of ritualized killings McCaleb specialized in solving with the FBI, and he is reluctantly drawn from his peaceful new life back into the horror and excitement of tracking down a terrifying homicidal maniac. More horrifying still, the suspect who seems to fit the profile that McCaleb develops is someone he has known and worked with in the past: LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch.
This book was not your typical Harry Bosch novel as Terry McCaleb was the retired FBI agent and Harry Bosch was the main suspect. It was a little slow to take off but once it did, it was a page-turner to the very end. Connelly is very good at developing characters, both good and bad, that are very intriguing and ones you'll feel are very real. I need to go back and read Blood Work as that's the book that introduces Terry McCaleb, a character which I like very much. This plot was very enjoyable and not too complicated. A pretty easy, straight forward read which I'm sure you'll enjoy if you're a Harry Bosch fan.
