Harry Bosch is no longer working for the LA Police Dept but part-timing pro-bono for the San Fernando force and working as a private investigator. A reclusive billionaire asks him to find a possible heir in parallel with an ongoing search for a serial rapist. Connelly confirms yet again his mastery of the thriller with action and police procedure equally balanced and a double set of thorough investigations that click into place like a perfect jigsaw. Add wit, wisdom and his strong sense of empathy for those abandoned by polite society and Connelly, a true modern master of the genre, never puts a foot wrong, wrong-footing the reader at every turn with genuine surprises. Some prolific crime authors and their creations often inevitably get stale as they reach their third decade, but Harry Bosch (aided and a betted by a pleasing cameo by his half-brother, the Lincoln lawyer Mickey Haller) still grows in stature even after he has retired. Indispensable. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Only Harry Bosch can uncover LA's darkest secrets in this new gripping thriller from global bestseller Michael Connelly. 'What do you want me to do?' Bosch asked again. 'I want you to find someone for me,' Vance said. 'Someone who might not have ever existed.' Harry Bosch is working as a part-time detective in the town of San Fernando outside of Los Angeles, when he gets the invitation to meet with the ageing aviation billionaire Whitney Vance. When he was eighteen Vance had a relationship with a Mexican girl called Vibiana Duarte, but soon after becoming pregnant she disappeared. Now, as he reaches the end of his life, Vance wants to know what happened to Vibiana and whether there is an heir to his vast fortune. And Bosch is the only person he trusts to undertake the assignment. Harry's aware that with such sums of money involved, this could be a dangerous undertaking - not just for himself, but for the person he's looking for - but as he begins to uncover Vibiana's tragic story, and finds uncanny links to his own past, he knows he cannot rest until he finds the truth.
