Description
On New Year's Day, a dog finds a bone in the Hollywood Hills--and unearths a murder committed more than twenty years earlier. It's a cold case, but for Detective Harry Bosch, it stirs up memories of his childhood as an orphan. He can't let it go. As the investigation takes Bosch deeper into the past, a beautiful rookie cop brings him alive in the present. No official warning can break them apart--or prepare Bosch for the explosions when the case takes a few hard turns. Suddenly all of L.A. is in an uproar, and Bosch, fighting to keep control, is driven to the brink of an unimaginable decision.

        Starred review from March 4, 2002
        Harry Bosch is at the top of his form—which is great news for Connelly fans who might have been wondering how much life the dour, haunted LAPD veteran had left in him. His latest adventure is as dark and angst-ridden as any of Bosch's past outings, but it also crackles with energy—especially in the details of police procedure and internal politics that animate virtually every page. What other crime writer could make such dramatic use of the fact that the front door of a house trailer swings out rather than in, creating problems for a two-man team of detectives? Who else would create to such credible narrative effect an egotistic celebrity coroner who jeopardizes an investigation because she lets a TV camera crew from Court TV follow her around, or an overage female rookie cop so in love with danger that she commits an unthinkable act? When the bones of an abused 12-year-old boy who disappeared in 1980 turn up in the woods above Hollywood (near a street named Wonderland, where former governor Jerry Brown used to live), the case stirs up Bosch's memories of his own troubled childhood. Also, as his captain so aptly points out, Harry is the LAPD's prime "shit magnet," an investigator who attracts muck and trouble wherever he goes. So it's no great surprise when the investigation takes a couple of nasty turns, right up through the last chapter. Connelly is such a careful, quiet writer that he can slow down the story to sketch in some relatively minor characters—a retired doctor, a couple who lived through their foster children—without missing a beat. (One-day laydown Apr. 16)Forecast:Connelly doesn't need much help in hitting the charts, but Little, Brown is going all out anyway, with a massive television, radio and print ad campaign, transit ads in New York and a 10-city author tour. Expect blockbuster sales and blockbuster satisfaction.

        First published in 2002, this novel featuring Connelly’s popular protagonist Harry Bosch remains one of the author’s better entries, a perfectly plotted, richly detailed account of the homicide detective’s nonstop search for the perpetrator of a 28-year-old murder. The case is opened when a dog calls attention to the skeletal remains of the victim partially buried in the Hollywood Hills, a young boy beaten to death. Reader Fernandez, whose voice is a little too youthful for the middle-aged Bosch, and too cultured for the hardboiled material, manages to overcome these obstacles with convincing performances. Among the latter are Bosch’s eager, overly sensitive partner, Jerry Edgar; his former partner, Kiz Rider; the arrogant and demanding Deputy Police Chief Irvin Irving; and a gallery of suspects including the victim’s seemingly insensitive mother and a despairing pederast unjustly hounded by the media. Though Fernandez never quite matches Bosch’s maturity and world-weariness, he does capture quite well the detective’s cold, unsentimental, and unyielding dedication to the job at hand. A Little, Brown paperback.

        November 1, 2000
        Former FBI profiler Terry McCaleb is back in Connelly's latest thriller (following Void Moon). He has retired after his heart transplant and is running a charter fishing service. When he is brought in as a consultant to profile a killer for the LAPD, he finds that all of the clues from the gruesome killing point to a type McCaleb calls "an avenging angel." As he digs deeper, he is shocked to find that the most likely suspect is Connelly's regular hero, Detective Harry Bosch. Bosch himself is lead detective in a case going to trial that involves another grisly killing. Bosch's past relationship with the newest victim and his attitude toward the killing only increase McCaleb's suspicions. The reuniting of Bosch and McCaleb under these strained circumstances leads to a quickly paced and interesting story. As with all the Bosch thrillers, plot twists abound, but in this case the story itself carries the novel, and there is less gory detail to wade through than in previous books. Connelly is always popular, and this is Connelly at his best. Highly recommended. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/15/00.]--Patrick J. Wall, University City P.L., MO
