Bosch is back! - in a superb new thriller from
this international bestselling author. Reviewers and readers agree that Michael Connelly is writing at the top of his game; giving us crime fiction on the dark side of Los Angeles and reinventing the form with every book he writes. At the end of City of Bones, fed up with the hypocrisy of the LAPD, Harry Bosch quit the department. Now he's forced to find a new way of life, but that of a retiree doesn't suit him. He has always devoted himself to justice, and he is still drawn towards protecting - or avenging - those whom the law has failed. When he left the LAPD Bosch took a file with him - the case of a film production assistant murdered four years earlier during a $2 million robbery on a movie set. The LAPD - now operating under post 9/11 rules - think the stolen money was used to finance a terrorist training camp. Thoughts of the original murder victim are lost in the federal zeal, and when it seems the killer will be set free to aid the feds' terrorist hunt, Bosch quickly finds himself in conflict with both his old colleagues and the FBI. He cannot rest until he finds the killer - with or without a badge.
