December 2012 eBook of the Month.
Another compellingly excellent Harry Bosch novel where a 30 year old cold case serial killer and a political conspiracy keep an ageing Harry Bosch more than fully occupied. Any fan of crime fiction needs to have read at least one Michael Connelly book - we at Lovereading have been addicted since 1996 and his consummate novel The Poet. And in case you are wondering DROP stands for Deferred Retirement Option Plan.
A message to our readers from Michael Connelly...
A cold case gets a DNA hit for a rape and murder which points the finger at a 29-year-old convicted rapist who was only eight at the time of the murder. Then a city councilman's son is found dead - fallen or pushed from a hotel window - and he insists on Bosch taking the case despite the two men's history of enmity. The cases are unrelated but they twist around each other like the double helix of a DNA strand. One leads to the discovery of a killer operating in the city for as many as three decades; the other to a deep political conspiracy that reached back into the dark history of the police department.
