My first Connelly read, I felt the prose style unmistakably male. It seemed fitting the hero, Harry Bosch would be namesake to a brand of powertools. Still, I sort of liked him. A double plot begins with a DNA match on an old murder victim to a suspect (Clayton Pell) who would have been only eight at the time. Has there been a mistake in the system? Bosch is relentless with finding answers, particularly when old adversary, Councillor Irving asks Bosch to look into the apparent suicide of his son, found at the foot of a highrise hotel.

The tale really rattles along without letup, particularly after Bosch encounters subtle manipulation in the most unexpected places. But those that appear to pull the strings are actually being manipulated. I couldn’t stop reading the part leading up to and the showdown of Bosch and Irving during a press conference. But the story is far from over, as Bosch has yet to locate a serial killer who has been sneakily leaving a bloody trail over three decades.

Connelly doesn’t go graphic with the horrors but he does with food and navigational directions. I felt a little sorry for Bosch’s partner, Chu, who after making a mistake, had to make it up big time to this resolute partner. It’s all very ‘high jingo,’ apparently.

I really didn’t see the twist at the end. Some might have seen it miles off and I usually see things coming in twisty plots. A really enjoyable read.

Harry Bosch at his best. Complete with jazz recommendations. Frank Morgan and others. He makes you believe you live in L.A.

An interesting and intricate story that has Bosch trying to solve a cold case as well as determine if a man who fell off a balcony was a suicide or a homicide. Things are never what they seem and when politics and crime combine, not everyone can be trusted. Another great mystery by Connelly!
