Three year retired Harry Bosch is working on cold cases for a small San Fernando Police Department who respect and treasure him, unlike his old colleagues from the LAPD days where he left under a cloud. In his new life he is asked to help with the murder of father and son pharmacists. At the same time he is questioned by his old department about a murderer and rapist’s case, a man who has been on death row for thirty years. Harry is accused of planting evidence and failing to do a DNA test, very serious allegations. Meanwhile his present case requires him to go “underground” to bring down a drugs gang. Because of the formal enquiries over the rapist photographs of Harry are released to the press and his cover blown. Now all hell breaks loose in a tense read. The plot could almost have been three separate stories but Connolly has cleverly interlinked them into a coherent whole. Great stuff. Sarah Broadhurst
Harry Bosch works cold cases as a volunteer for the San Fernando police department when he's called out to a local drug store where a young pharmacist has been murdered. Bosch and the town's three-person detective squad sift through the clues, which lead into the dangerous, big business world of prescription drug abuse. Meanwhile, an old case from Bosch's LAPD days comes back to haunt him when a long-imprisoned killer claims Harry framed him and that there's new evidence which proves it. Bosch left the LAPD on bad terms, so his former colleagues aren't keen to protect his reputation. He must fend for himself in clearing his name and keeping a clever killer in prison.
The two unrelated cases wind across each other like strands of barbed wire, and Bosch learns that there are two kinds of truth: the kind that sets you free and the kind that leaves you buried in darkness.
