I really love the Harry Bosch series and this is another good one. It is a mystery but without the violence. A little lighter read. I would recommend it.

A little light on the action but dual investigations taking place keeps the book busy.

Connolly weaves 2 plots together , both suspenseful. Kept me guessing till the end.

I have read all of Connelly's books, and this one is one of my favourites. Fast pageturner!

Really well-written, this is my first read of a Connelly novel and it won't be my last. It's an old school approach with solid craftsmanship, creative storytelling, elegant pacing and no over the top theatrics.

Detective Harry Bosch has a new job. Part time at San Fernando Police Detective & part time private investigator. Harry works on two mysteries, investigating an heir of a wealthy recluse & hunting down a murderer who stalks women & enters their house by cutting thru window screens. Michael Connelly can be counted on to weave both these stories into suspenseful resolution.

Keep up the good work, Michael. I have read all of your books and could hardly wait for the
new ones to come out.

This is the first Michael Connelly book I’ve read, and if all are as interesting as this one, I will seek out other books by him. I find few authors who can connect events that have happened in the past with current times. Connelly is one of those who uses the Vietnam experience his detective, Harry Bosch, with a current private investigation. I enjoyed the juxtaposition of his private investigation with the search for a rapist in his current position as an unpaid member of a small city police force, along with his father duties to his daughter in college.

Another very good Harry Bosch novel. Hard to put the book down.

Another great Bosch novel. A real page turner. Added bonus is a role in the story for Bosch's half-brother, 'The Lincoln Lawyer.'

I don't know how Connelly does it. He's said that the Bosch novels are supposed to be written in real-time and is attempting to get out, I believe it was, at least one Bosch novel a year as Harry reaches the end of his career. Even with the goal of fast writing this series continues to deliver. I'd rate this up there as the best of the last six or seven even. Two cases are going simultaneously and Connelly builds the tension in both like a well-written harmony. There's little side movement in this one. Bosch has some moments with his daughter, an altercation or two with other cops, but these are kept to a minimum, creating a great, suspenseful procedural I couldn't put down.

The TV series is really good as well. I like how they've used bits of each book for each episode. It has a great cast and it really is a great show to watch

Keep Bosch working and adding in the brother into the plot is useful. Sort of a travelogue quality to the story as he bounces about but an interesting tale never the less.

Bosch volunteered without paid in the police department of the 2.374 sq mile San Fernando, an enclave in LA county, while working as a PI to fill in the rest of the time after forced into retirement from the ranks of LAPD. Naturally his skill set was in high demand. However, he might have tried to do more than he should. Didn't care much about those police procedural details as in his recent books but liked the twists in his PI case and the art scenes of Chicano Park, a real place located under the Hwy 5 overpass and the exit to the bridge crossing San Diego Bay to Coronado Island. Decent mellow read for a detective thriller.

I thought that this might be one of the best Harry Bosch novels yet - although I am getting tired of the fact that he keeps getting hired/fired as a police officer...

Two for one stories with Harry Bosch calling on his half brother, Lincoln Lawyer Mickey Haller as back up for the legal bits.Michael Connelly has dealt with the Vietnam War in this one at a time of the anniversaries.Highly visual. Will translate so well to the small screen Very much enjoyed.

Vintage Harry Bosch with two for one cases in this book. A two or three day read, so don't start if other distractions. Stands by itself, but best to read the Bosch series in order if you can.
