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.

Sarah Broadhurst

Now Irving wants Harry to head up the investigation. Harry uncovers traces of two of the city's deepest secrets: a killer operating for as many as three decades without being detected, and a conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department ...
