He did not show wonder, curiosity or excitement. He made Harry Bosch sound like a normal, pleasant, everyday kind of guy instead of tough, jaded, homicide detective. Narrative mode: Story length: Swearing language: Sexual content: Then go back and read the rest in order.

Michael Connelly manages to write some of the most complex police procedurals out there. Once again, this one had me flummoxed how it was all going to turn out.
I listened to this book and I enjoyed the narrator. View 2 comments. And his memories of the riots in Los Angeles in when the acquitting of the officers in the Rodney King beating caused a terrible wave of looting and fires throughout the city were particularly strong. The murder of a young woman in an alley had never been solved, and now, twenty years later, Harry was determined to bring the killer to justice.
But with technology being much further advanced than it had been twenty years prior, Harry thought they had a good shot at solving the case. But could they? Would they find the black box? Would those dark days back in reveal its secrets to Harry? Or was he putting himself in danger once again?
The Black Box is another excellent read which I highly recommend. Dec 01, Pamela rated it did not like it. Oh dear. After the fiasco that was The Drop I was hoping Connelly would redeem himself with this. He didn't. There were no plot twists Here are a few of the problems--granted none are so big as the lack of plot twists, but they are problems nonetheless: There was very little about the '92 riot.
So little, in fact, that you had to wonder why on earth he even bothered. Bosch's daughter could easily be replaced by a dog or even gasp! She is more sensitive.
She is more talented. She is more mature. She is boring, predictable, unnecessary, and ever so annoying. The book is more a screenplay than a book.
Not only does Mr. Connelly use a scene that has become trite and overused in movies bad guy shoots other bad guy in the head with no warning , he writes it as a movie scene.
Here you have the main character with blood, brains, and skull fragments blown all over him and there's not a single word about how it feels. Not a one! Oh yeah, there's the visual description, but nothing about what he felt or smelled or tasted. There's not even any mention of the effect of the sound on the character. It is all visual And this isn't the only scene that is written with "eyes only" Enough with the jazz Connelly could have used a lot of the time he spent on music describing the look, feel, smell, and sounds of the riot.
In short, I hate to say it, but I may have read my last Bosch. What a sad, sad day. They are written as though they were movies--scenes are described visually with little or no involvement of the other senses.
Try a bit of pulp from the '50s then something recent, and you will be astonished. You don't just see what's happening, you see, feel, smell, and hear what's happening.
You are well and truly in the character's head. View all 9 comments. Nov 03, James Thane rated it really liked it Shelves: During the course of the L. Jespersen, an attractive photo-journalist from Denmark, was found executed in a dark ally in the middle of the riot zone by national guardsmen who were attempting to provide crowd control.
But at the height of the rioting, Harry had no opportunity to do anything more than make a cursory examination of the scene before he was ordered away to During the course of the L. But at the height of the rioting, Harry had no opportunity to do anything more than make a cursory examination of the scene before he was ordered away to another homicide. In the wake of the riots, the Jespersen killing was assigned to a special task force and the case was never solved.
This is one of those cases that has always haunted Harry and now, twenty years later, the same gun that killed the young journalist is used in another murder. Bosch, who is now assigned to the department's Open-and-Unsolved Unit, jumps at the chance to reopen the Jespersen case and finally provide a very belated justice for the victim.
It will not be easy. The chain of evidence is almost hopelessly murky and would frustrate any detective less tenacious than Bosch. In addition to confronting an almost impossible case, Harry is also soon up against department bureaucrats who are interested only in posting statistics that make them look good, who do not share Harry's sense of the Mission of a homicide detective, and who for their own nefarious reasons, would rather this particular case not be solved.
Bosh will not be deterred. He makes an end run around his supervisors and doggedly pursues the case as he believes he should. He's desperately searching for the "Black Box," which will provide the solution to the case, but in the end, the term will become much more than a metaphor as Harry uncovers a particularly dark and disturbing series of crimes. As he investigates the case, Harry continues to grapple with the complex challenges involved in raising a teenage daughter by himself.
He also has a new woman in his life and this relationship is difficult as well, but watching him juggle all of these responsibilities is a treat, as always. All in all, this is an excellent entry in one of the best crime series in the history of the genre. Twenty-five years after first introducing Harry Bosch, Michael Connelly just continues to keep getting better and better.

A young Danish woman had been shot, execution style, in the eye and her body was left in an alley. This was during the civil unrest that swept L. Because of th Number 16 in The Harry Bosch series. Because of the riots there were was unprecedented levels of looting, assaults and murders. The National Guard were brought in to help quell the situation.
Because of the situation Harry could not do a proper investigation.
Now twenty years later Harry is back on the trail. Trying to build a case from twenty years ago was never going to be an easy task but with his usual dogged persistence things start to happen. The murder weapon is found and this leads to a known criminal which leads to a bigger criminal so on and so forth until Harry gets to see through the fog. As the fog clears a finger is clearly pointing at some very influential persons. To make matters more interesting the new Cold Case Lieutenant seems to have it for Harry.
As is usual from Michael Connelly this is yet another highly entertaining, warts and all, look at police procedures. Harry is not one to be doing things by the book you could call him a maverick but that would be an understatement.
But if you want the job done then your man is Harry with his gut instincts. Oct 05, Fergal rated it it was amazing. Harry Bosch what can I say? Loved this thank you Mr Connelly: Jan 13, Michael rated it liked it Shelves: Good but not great. Detective Harry Bosch is working on the cold case squad and takes a personal interest in the murder of a Danish journalist 20 years ago during the riots following the Rodney King case.
He was called to the scene at the time but the chaos and caseload prevented the police from serious efforts on the case. His relationship with his partner, John Chu, is pretty flat, and there is little depth revealed in his relationship with his girlfriend Hannah. Overall there is just no sense that Harry is really challenged.
He seeks justice like a bulldog and does not seem to flounder or get very emotional over the impediments he has to overcome. Thus, as a reader I was not as emotionally engaged as in many of the other great works in this series. View all 7 comments. Dec 19, Donna Schmidt rated it really liked it. Another good read by Michael Connelly. This series is always a pleasure to read, it's detective work without the unrealistic thrills the majority of the time and is readily absorbable.
It may be that you don't remember the nuances of each outing in a couple of years but each tale holds up on its own.
This one verged on the slightly unrealistic near the end with some go getting action but it still felt within the bounds of what Bosch would do to give 7. This one verged on the slightly unrealistic near the end with some go getting action but it still felt within the bounds of what Bosch would do to give a voice to the deceased.
The mystery was decent enough without ever hitting the heights of some of the others in the series meaning that a truer reflection would be 3. Not many left before I'm up to speed with the series which isn't great as I'll have to wait annually for the next instalment but I think I'll be finishing it sooner rather than later!
Great series. View all 4 comments. According to Harry Bosch, the black box is the narrative that provides the parameters of an investigation Just like the black box in an airplane provides meaningful data to help figure out why the plane went down. In this story, 20 years ago a Dutch woman photographer is found dead in the middle of the LA race riots following the Rodney King verdict. It made no sense for her to be there and when Harry and his partner were called to the scene, the LAPD, com According to Harry Bosch, the black box is the narrative that provides the parameters of an investigation It made no sense for her to be there and when Harry and his partner were called to the scene, the LAPD, completely overwhelmed, was frantically racing from one crime scene to another.
Under pressure, he delayed as long as possible, retrieving only a bullet casing from the scene before moving on.

Fast forward 20 years and Harry has the case back as part of the anniversary of those riots, an opportunity for him to do her justice. This was a fascinating case that I really enjoyed because it started with a bullet casing to find the narrative for Anneke being in that alley.
It was a windy, twisty journey and I just loved the ride. There was the usual dose of aggravating politics in keeping with real life and some interesting outcomes at the end.
I inhaled this one, loving every minute of it, even with a completely different narrator though I had kinda gotten used to Len Cariou. View all 5 comments.

The ending in particular felt shallow, rushed and lacked credibility in parts, using weak plot devices to create a bloody climax. After 18 outings I've read 15 of them , Harry seemed somewhat tired and drawn, a shadow of his former self trapped in a cycle of endlessly reliving his modus operandi as a solo, maverick cop who bends rules and annoys his superiors whilst unpicking puzzles lesser men would fail to solve. For the series to have new life my feeling is the stories are going to need to become more complex, layered and believable, and some of the secondary characters are going to have to come to the fore and there be sustained interaction.
Nov 05, Ed rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Michael Connelly fans. Recommended to Ed by: Long-time Michael Connelly fan. I breezed through this almost page Harry Bosch cop novel. Great storyline that has Harry working on a year old cold case. There is a warm-hearted sub-plot with his family life including his teenaged daughter Maddie and girlfriend Hannah.
I'm not a big fan of long books, but I'm a big Michael Connelly fan, so I took the plunge. View all 8 comments. Bosch and Edgar, brought in from Hollywood Division to provide initial cursory investigations of murders and, shielded by the National Guard, are led to an ally where Danish photo-journalist Anneke Jespersen, is the victim of an execution-style killing.
But what was she doing there? With little time to work the scene before the body is removed, Bosch recovers a spent gun cartridge. With only a handful of reports he follows the gun: Aside from working the case and rubbing his partner David Chu up the wrong way, Bosch is still seeing Hannah a psychiatrist from an earlier book and trying to be a good father to teenage daughter Maddie, though their diet seems high in carbs.
Once again he is on the wrong side of police administrators, this time around Lt. Not for the data you send up to the tenth-floor PowerPoint shows. For the victims. And their families. There are a few inconsistencies: Vintage Bosch Dec 01, Fred Forbes rated it really liked it.
Sometimes you just want to settle in with an old friend and get lost in his world for awhile and it is easy to do with Harry Bosch. The plotting, at least with regards to solving the mystery is clever and full of "where does he go from here and how does he get the information" points that make this series so enjoyable.
I agree with some of the other reviewers that there is more of a TV script like quality to this one, and I found the principal perp's ability to pull together what was happening b Sometimes you just want to settle in with an old friend and get lost in his world for awhile and it is easy to do with Harry Bosch.
I agree with some of the other reviewers that there is more of a TV script like quality to this one, and I found the principal perp's ability to pull together what was happening based on a few random clues to be a bit improbable but the book held my interest and was an enjoyable read.

She had been shot at close range. No weapon was ever found. Now ballistics has matched a bullet from another murder with the bullet that killed Anneke. Both bullets were shot from the same gun.

To top it off, while Harry delves into this case, Internal Affairs is investigating him. Harry has his work cut out for him in this book. Twenty years after the Anneke's murder, he needs to discover what story she was working on that brought her to Los Angeles during the riots.
This story captured my attention from the beginning. I had a hard time putting it down. My rating: I am so going to need someone to hold Bosch down one of these days and say going off to investigate solo has never worked out well for him.
And due to Bosch ticking off the Chief of Police seriously at this point how does Bosch have a job he may be getting kicked after the events of this book. You don't know since that is left up in the air. I do have to say that it's get I am so going to need someone to hold Bosch down one of these days and say going off to investigate solo has never worked out well for him. I do have to say that it's getting a little old that Bosch is always the only person in the world to care about victims.
If anything, I say his single minded obsession ends up getting everyone else around him killed. And for such a smart guy he keeps getting into it with people in power. He literally has no one to keep him safe anymore so I am just wondering about the long-game with this character. It's been a year since the events in "The Drop" which gets referenced throughout this book. After the events of the case involving Irving's son that Bosch investigated, we find out that Irving did not get re-elected to the City Council.
A more pro-police person won the seat. Kiz and Bosch have not spoken after he finds out she used him to set up Irving. Kiz is now a captain somewhere and the Chief is struggling to hold onto his job. The last thing puzzles me since it seemed like based on the previous books the Chief was well liked.
But now he's a politician according to Bosch so that makes him a not okay guy. Bosch seems to have few friends and is still dating a woman from the last book he met named Dr. Hannah Stone. Bosch investigates a cold case involving a victim that he and his former partner J.
Edgar called Snow White. The victim was found shot to death during the LA riots and many thought she was just in the wrong time and place. However, Bosch believes a gun that was used was involved in several other gang related homicides and starts trying to track down who owned the gun first.
This is typical Bosch going blundering around and acting like a jerk to a ton of people. There's also a weird scene when Bosch is reprimanded for calling someone by their last name and he realizes he may have been insulting his partner David Chu for years by calling him Chu, and then proceeds to keep calling him David that was just awkward to even read about.
Lord Bosch needs to do something besides listen to jazz. Maybe read a book on how to interact with others or something. His romance is pretty boring and part of me wonders why he is even with Hannah Stone. At this point he has been dating her for at least a year. He knows about her son and even gets into some trouble because of him. I am surprised he didn't cut his losses and break up with her. I guess we will see what goes down between them in the next book.
Bosch's daughter Maddie is now 15 or The Brass Verdict. How will he find anything? Question J. Definitely a page turner and an excellent read.
And for such a smart guy he keeps getting into it with people in power. After three years on the crime beat in L. The Steel Kiss. Back then, still a Homicide Detective at Hollywood Division with Jerry Edgar, Harry Bosch was called into a crime scene in an alley, where a white female body was found.
Then he finds one small piece of something and follows it.
