Harry Bosch has begun his retirement and he doesn't like it. After a career in law enforcement, and devoting his life to protecting, and avenging those wronged by the law, Bosch finds it difficult to sit home and do nothing, especially since he is haunted by the unsolved murder of a young girl.
Bosch begins his private investigation, only to find another unsolved crime...one that is linked to the murder of the young woman.
Unable to rest until the killer is caught, Bosch will work outside of the law, but every step he gets closer to the truth brings him closer to a madman who'll stop at nothing to keep that truth from being found out.
'Lost Light' is another great entry in the Harry Bosch series. The story unfolds at a breakneck pace, and every turn of the page introduces a new plot twist. Harry Bosch is one of the best characters in detective fiction, and with each new outing we see him grow wiser and more mature taking the series to a whole new level.
Michael Connelly continues to dazzle readers with his original, fast-paced and complex novels. Each new novel surpasses that of the previous, proving Michael Connelly to be a master of his craft.
As with all previous Connelly novels, expect to see 'Lost Light' on all the bestseller lists.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is told entirely in the first person, through Harry's eyes and mouth. For that reason, it takes on a very personal aspect that some of the other Bosch books don't have. Harry's personal foibles, his mistakes and his lost love make him a bit easier to relate to. He's fallible, but he doesn't fail. He's outside the loop now, but he still solves the mystery. Moreso than usual, Connelly grabs you by the collar and won't let you go until the end. This is the kind of book you want while you're waiting to serve jury duty or get on a delayed airplane flight. Diximus.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
'Lost Light' is only my second Harry Bosch novel but it did involve me enough to think about going back and reading the earlier books in the series. Here Harry, now retired and a PI, investigates an old case, a $ 2 million theft from a movie set and the murder of a young woman who worked at the company producing the movie.
Maybe I've been spoilt by all the James Patterson and Jeffrey Deaver books I've read but this novel seemed rather straightforward. There were no real shockers or twists and the novel traversed a straight path as Harry unravelled the plot. On the other hand, the novel was quite complicated and tight on plot and Harry as a character was interesting and human. It helped that he found himself in trouble with the FBI since his travails humanized him more (and the way he gets out of it was delightful). There were a few too many coincidences but it was admirable the way Connelly brought it all together at the end. The ending was hugely satisfying but would be even more so for regular readers, I would guess.

Harry Bosch has finally done it: he has turned in his batch and retired. But even after eight months there are still a couple of unsolved murder cases that keep nagging him. He has made copies of the files and decides to work on the murder of a young woman working at a film company. When he starts digging into the case he gets more attention then he bargained for, especially from the new Anti-Terrorism Squad of the FBI. It takes all his skills and perseverance to bring this case to a good end. And what are the roles of a paralyzed ex-cop, a former DA-turned-lawyer and Harry's ex-wife? And the biggest surprise of them all is right on the last page and it makes you wonder what will happen to Harry. Another highly entertaining book by my favourite detective author.

I had never realised that there ALWAYS was some luminescence even in the dark, just as I never new what a Brass Verdict was, until I read that book. Mystery loves MY company, or maybe it is the reverse, just like in the Reversal !

By Pol Sixe TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Oct. 7 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was the first Harry Bosch novel read and, pretty good stuff. Harry, recently retired starts his own investigation into a cold case from a few years earlier, a woman was murdered, a movie set lost $2milion in a heist and three law enforcement persons had come to harm's way. Along the way he butts heads with the FBI, Connelly uses his soap box to comment on the excesses of the Homeland Security efforts post 9/11. Bosch is studious and needs reports and data to review looking for new leads. He also has an ex wife in Vegas making her living as a professional gambler, Harry can't let her go. The pages turn quicker as the plot unravels, a good story, logical police procedural. Well done!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
You can quit the force, but can you get it out of your blood? Clearly not based on this excellent novel about a retired Harry Bosch seeking justice for a murdered woman. But can you at least get away from the police politics? Maybe so. Maybe not.

Why can't Harry leave a cold case alone? The dead woman's hands were "directed upward from her head, as if she were reaching out to someone, almost beseechingly, begging for something. They looked like the hands from a Renaissance painting, like the hands of the damned reaching heavenward for forgiveness. In my life I have worked almost a thousand homicides and no positioning of a fallen body ever gave me such pause."

The advantage of being retired is that you have plenty of time to work on one cold case. The disadvantage is that no one has to help you. Harry Bosch always finds a way, driven by the cruel memory of the dead Angella Benton.

One thing connects to another, and soon Harry is seeing that appearances may be deceiving . . . and intended to fool the casual observer. Then Harry steps his foot into something very delicate, the heavy feet come down on him. Harry doesn't like it, and he's more determined than ever to get to the bottom of the murder.

Opportunity, motive, and alibi all turn out to be important to solving the crime.

But Harry also notices some things that don't add up . . . but doesn't draw the right conclusions until the end of the book where you and he are in for a big surprise.

This is one of the better Harry Bosch stories, and it marks new ground for the series.
