Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two.
DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? The latter possibility could compromise all of the lab's DNA cases currently in court.
Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics. Councilman Irvin Irving's son jumped or was pushed from a window at the Chateau Marmont. Irving, Bosch's longtime nemesis, has demanded that Harry handle the investigation.
Relentlessly pursuing both cases, Bosch makes two chilling discoveries: a killer operating unknown in the city for as many as three decades, and a political conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department.

A Case of High Jingo!
Having read all of MC's books, I was just a tad disappointed with the last couple of Bosch books. Just slightly. But, I felt this one was much more like the Bosch of Angel's Flight and Concrete Blonde. The way Connelly lays it out, all the pieces, with the one thing still missing that keeps gnawing at Harry. And, to combine two cases in one book, gave it a little bonus. I look forward to read about what happens next...until me meet again, Harry.
This is one of the best works to come from Connelly involving H. Bosch ever. It's well written with appropriate twists and the main character's emotions and thoughts are all correctly colored in reality in terms of how they are expressed in relation to the development of the plot. The ending is NOT expected but still seems to be the correct action in terms of the Plot's Exit Strategy. Kudos: Michael Connelly...
I Want My Money Back!,
Harry and I go way back...but Connelly mailed this one in......not worth the time to read much less the money.
