Format: Mass Market Paperback
Howard Elias is part of the Los Angeles upper crust. As a very high profile African-American attorney and racial activist, his lucrative practice consists in large part of suing the LAPD for real, perceived or imagined civil rights infractions against the black community in LA. When he is murdered in a particularly vindictive fashion on the very eve of an important trial against four white officers, the administration of the LAPD recognizes that it has no choice but to investigate its own members and let the chips fall where they may. The case is assigned to Harry Bosch and his Hollywood homicide squad, rookie black female officer, Kiz Rider and a senior detective, Jerry Edgar, also a black officer in good standing. The political considerations behind the choice of this team to investigate the case are obvious. Bosch, Rider and Edgar, probably more through good luck than good management, have never been sued by Elias. That the squad has two black members obviously makes the choice even more politically palatable.

Michael Connelly has stepped up to the plate once again and treated us to an exciting police procedural that will thrill Harry Bosch fans to their very toes. Los Angeles is graphically portrayed as a tinder box ready to explode into a reprise of the Watts riots that took place in the aftermath of the Rodney King trial. As we've come to expect, Bosch continues to be a come-what-may investigator whose only pursuit is the truth. As Bosch's former partner, Frank Sheehan, comes under suspicion for the murder, Bosch's friendship, his loyalty and the steadfastness of his principles are tested to their limits.

This might not be the best novel that Connelly ever wrote.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 22 2008
Format: Hardcover
Angels Flight was written near the ebb of LAPD's reputation: OJ Simpson had skated after the police investigation proved to be corrupt in most peoples' minds and Rodney King had been beaten, enraging those who feared and despised LAPD. Angels Flight is an attempt to re-create that era and give a sense of the pressures on those who were trying to do their duty while public relations and political concerns ran amok. The cross-currents of those disparate interests suck Harry Bosch into a cesspool of duplicity from which he'll be likely to escape.

In Trunk Music, Harry had married . . . perhaps not wisely. As Angels Flight opens, she's gone . . . and Harry can't seem to get her back: The lure of the casinos is calling its siren sound.

Harry has the weekend off: His team in Hollywood isn't on call. He's surprised when the top brass call him out in the middle of the night on a murder that occurs on the incline railway in downtown LA: That's Robbery Homicide territory. He's even more surprised when the murder scene has already been combed over and Internal Affairs desk types are everywhere. There are two deceased: One is a civil rights lawyer who makes his living suing cops . . . and who is about to lower the boom on the Robbery Homicide crew. Harry quickly appreciates that having two partners who are African Americans is part of why he's "leading" the case.

Despite lots of pressure to pin the case on someone, anyone, Harry continues to investigate. What he learns suggests even darker secrets than appeared on the surface.

Will he be able to outfox those who want a sacrificial lamb? How will his marriage take the strain? Can he keep his job? Will the city sleep quietly?

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Angels Flight" is Michael Connelly's eighth book, his sixth to feature Harry Bosch and was first published in 1999. Much of Bosch's background has been covered in the earlier instalments. Orphaned at twelve, he later served in Viet-Nam before returning to Los Angeles and joining the police force. He currently works the Hollywood Division's homicide table, though he was once a member of the LAPD's elite Robbery-Homicide Division (RHD). He's seen by some as a maverick, though he's not quite the 'loner' he once was. Following a Vegas wedding he's been married to Eleanor Wish for about two years, while he's settled into his role as Squad One's Team Leader and works well with his partners. In fact, he seems determined to become a new Harry Bosch : he's even trying to quit smoking.

The book opens with Bosch and his team being summoned by Deputy Chief Irving to investigate a double homicide Angel's Flight. Bosch is confused, as the crime scene is beyond Hollywood Division's boundaries, and inside Central Division's. Irving, however, has his reasons - firstly, Central Division's homicide detectives are all on training. Secondly, the case itself is somewhat sensitive. Although two people have been murdered - Catalina Perez and Howard Elias - the department is specifically worried about the implications of Elias' murder. Elias was a lawyer who specialized in police and civil-rights cases, and his murder has come two days before what might have been his biggest case against the LAPD. Michael Harris, his client, is suing fifteen RHD detectives for ten million dollars. Questioned regarding the kidnapping of a twelve-year old girl, he claimed the detectives had tortured him over a three day period.
