4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 28 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
How dark can you make a police procedural? Michael Connelly pushes the familiar noir envelope into new dimensions in this dark-as-night-at-the-bottom-of-the-sea story. I call it a triple noir mystery because detective Hieronymus (rhymes with anonymous) Bosch

1. comes from a horrible family background (his mother was a woman who rented by the hour and was murdered, leaving Harry to the foster care system),

2. lived a nightmare as a tunnel-rat fighter in the Vietnamese War, and

3. this investigation has enough darkness in it to put out a search light.

The book's title is a reference back to tunnel fighting.

Most new detective series begin with a character who is breaking in. During the subsequent books, the detective gradually develops skill and a career.

Connelly does something different: Bosch is a virtually burned-out case who lives only to bring down the bad guys (be they in LAPD or outside). He's beyond the classic rebel without a cause (James Dean would have been frightened of our Harry). This story picks up on Harry after he's well along on a slide in losing control over his anger.

It's the weekend and Harry's partner is out selling real estate. Harry covers what appears to be an OD by an addict until things don't add up. Pushing forward, Harry convinces himself it's a murder. No one is happy about it. But life is proceeding until Harry checks in with the FBI to find out about a bank robbery that seems connected. Harry feels like he's stepped into something he shouldn't, but the icy FBI agent, Eleanor Wish, attracts his interest anyway. Soon, the LAPD Internal Affairs team is after Harry. Can he brazen it out and keep his investigation?

This story has more surprises in it than you would expect.

Michael Connelly is one of my favorite authors and as an employee at a large bookstore chain I recommend him often. This is his first book featuring Harry Bosch, who is the main character in most of his books. I love this character and I love the way Connelly writes. Once you start reading his books I guarentee you won't want to stop... I know I haven't, I have read them all and look forward to the next Harry Bosch novel.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
An absolutely terrific first novel in the superb Hironymous Bosch series, introduces us to Michael Connelly's enigmatic and troubled LA detective. Harry Bosch lives for his job, and the cost to his personal life and relationships is troubling.
When we meet Harry, he has already been, in essence, demoted by being kicked off of the elite Robbery/Homicide squad and stuck in Homicide in the Hollywood division. But Harry is a pure detective, and will work every case with the same single-minded tenacity that gets results while alienating him from his fellows and irritating his bosses.
A throw-away death of a junkie found in a drainage pipe would have gone unnoticed if anyone but Harry Bosch had caught the call. But Bosch, while having a lousy personal life IS a superb detective, and he sees what many would miss. Not only that, but the victim is someone from Harry's past which further prompts him to look deeper. Harry's investigation causes him to cross paths with the FBI and his conflicts become even more personal when he becomes romantically involved with a female FBI agent.
The story unfolds with many surprises and the meticulous detail that we will come to expect from Connelly in the series. First rate all the way. A great beginning.

Well written; characters well developed and deep. Intriguing plot and great descriptions of procedure and geography. I would highly recommend. Bosch not quite as fascinating and troubled as Rebus, but very consuming.

I started reading Harry Bosch novels well into the book series and decided that because I liked the character so much I would search out the first book and start from the beginning. I was glad I did. It was a very well written novel and followed a precise story line. Now I have a better insight on how the character evolved and can't wait to read the next book in the series

This is the first Harry Bosch novel that I read and, I have to say, I am not disappointed. It is a really well written book that kept me glued to it, never wanting to let it down for more than a few minutes. If you like mystery/detective novels, I highly recommend the work of Michael Connelly.
