Another excellent novel by Michael Connelly. Great character development, goes deep into what it's like to be a news reporter but not to the point of the reader losing interest in what's being said. The story moves fast from one chapter to the next, and it's hard to put down! Keeps you guessing what will happen in the next few pages. This time the story is told from the (first person) viewpoint of Jack McEvoy, a reporter that appears in many of Connelly's "Harry Bosch" novels. Another recurring character, FBI agent Rachel Walling, is an integral part of the story. Some authors rush to end the book and you feel left unsatisfied - NOT the case with this book: this ending leaves you satisfied that the story has reached its conclusion at just the right pace.
