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.
