"Black Ice" begins with the discovery of a dead cop in a motel room that appears to be suicide, and ends with a revelation (uncovered by Harry Bosch) that the cop's death was murder. However, Harry is the only one to believe in the cop's murder until events unfold to prove him correct, and the suspects are hard to come by.
This is typically well-written, fully-developed, and articulate Harry Bosch, only William Connelly's second novel (after "The Black Echo"). The plot is very well constructed, with revelations evenly paced throughout. The characters are more than placecards to hold their positions for the novel to unfold. Bosch proves himself the rebel of custom and protocol as he ventures through several states and countries.
Readers familiar with the Bosch cycle of novels will not want to miss this one. Readers new to Bosch are advised to read "The Black Ice" first.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Michael Connelly's novel The Black Ice features veteran LAPD detective Harry Bosch. This time Harry is investigating the death of 'one of their own'.

Cal Moore, a narcotic's officer that Harry knew vaguely, is found in a motel bathroom with his head practically blown off by a shotgun and a suicide note in his pocket that read 'I found out who I was'. When Harry is given the duty of notifying next of kin, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to Moore's wife, Sylvia, and the attraction builds slowly, albeit perhaps a bit too predictably.

As Harry investigates an unidentified 'Juan Doe' who seems to have a connection to Moore, one of Moore's partners gives him a file that Moore had been working on. It was a case involving 'black ice', a deadly rock narcotic that had hit the streets.

A series of murders in Hollywood and Mexico lead Harry to a Mexican drug lord Zorrillo, known to his compatriots as El Papa--the pope. Zorrillo is a man shrouded in mystery and death.

From beginning to end, The Black Ice is full of action and suspense. The only thing lacking is perhaps a bit more warmth and emotion from Harry, who has lived the single life far too long. I'd like to see him have a real and deep relationship, instead of always the carefree bachelor kind.

Regardless, it's still a great book by a great author. Fast-paced, technical in crime scene investigation and believable. This book kept me reading and wanting more.

But it is the final three chapters that give you an unexpected twist and a final, explosive confrontation leads to death. The plot weaves through intricate subplots, with the familiar touch of a protagonist that is multi-dimensional in character. Harry Bosch has grown immensely in Connelly's last few novels. Looking forward to his next case.

Like all Bosch stories, you don't want to put it down. Excellent plot twists that keep you guessing. A must read.

This book with an intriguing title and cover is brilliantly executed and shows the depth of the author's resourceful mind. Michael Connelly's imaginative and knowledge are weaved together to create this fascinating plot, brilliant narrative and fast-paced mystery that takes us into the world of police than we have ever known; ie simple folks like us.

This mystery novel with its enlightening story, easy-to-relate-to characters and breath-taking pace rekindles my once waning interest in mystery/thriller books. It reminds me of Triple Agent Double Cross, which holds the breath of the reader until the very end. Connelly is the type of writer to go for.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Aug. 20 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Be sure you read The Black Echo before this book. The back story and characterizations rely a lot on these books being read in the order they were written.

The Black Ice has many things to recommend it. Harry Bosch is a modern "noir" detective working in LA's underbelly, the sleazy streets of Hollywood, who sees himself as an avenging angel with no room for anything else in his life. That characterization is tested in The Black Ice when Harry is affected to his toes by meeting the widow of a murder victim.

The descriptions of drug manufacture, distribution, and dealing are powerful and memorable. The book has lots of exciting action.

You'll also feel like you've been taken on a well-run tour of Hollywood and Mexicali . . . to see the tawdriest locales.

But the book does go wrong, tarnishing lots of good writing. Michael Connelly inexplicably and unnecessarily uses one of the oldest and least satisfying plot devices in the mystery author's filing cabinet. I won't say more, but you'll know what I mean when the book is over.

The effect of hitting that plot device is like going from a smooth ride in a jet to a kid's soap box derby crate rolling over potholes. The ride just isn't the same. Up until the plot device is triggered, the book is clearly a five-star effort.

But you have better things ahead. The Concrete Blonde, the third Harry Bosch mystery, is a much better and more rewarding book to read.
