Review published on December 14, 2017.
This is the latest Harry Bosch procedural detective story – very good stuff.
I hadn’t read any Michael Connelly novels for a long time and received this one to review and it certainly puts me in mind to rediscover and continue with them soon. This one finds Harry Bosch working for the San Fernando Police Force and getting involved in a double murder at a pharmacy as well as trying to exonerate himself when a case from the past comes back to trouble him.
The characterisation of the main character is a major factor and the plot swings along very nicely and fluently, engaging the reader (I finished the book at 5 in the morning!). Straightforward and interesting, it should be recommended to all lovers of detective fiction. My only gripe (a pet gripe of mine) is the need for thriller writers to give us readers street directions! Apart from locals who may read the book, this is meaningless to any other reader.
Paul Allard 5/3
