Sarah Broadhurst's view...
This man is ace. The character Harry Bosch has appeared in several others including the one which precedes this, The Narrows. All are recommended. Connelly’s other novels are great but there is something special about the Harry Bosch tales. The LA police corruption, the rivalry between officers and the city itself all play an important part in the twists and turns of his exceptional storytelling. He is terrific. This title is also available as an Audiobook, in either CD or cassette format.
Comparison: Robert Crais, Dennis Lehane, G M Ford.
The Closers by Michael Connelly
After three years as a PI, Harry Bosch returns to the LAPD, working with his former cop ally and partner, Kizmin Rider.
Harry and Kiz are assigned to the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit. These detectives are the Closers; they put a shovel in the dirt and turn over the past. Harry and Kiz are immediately thrown into a politically sensitive and dangerous case when a DNA match connects a white supremacist to the 1988 murder of a mixed race 16-year-old girl. As he navigates the case, Harry finds a police department far different from the one he left three years earlier. A new Chief has been brought over from New York to change the bad old culture of corruption - or that's the theory.
But one thing hasn't changed - Harry's nemesis, Irving. The former Deputy Chief has been pushed from power and given a virtually meaningless new role. Full of vengeance, Irving calls Harry a 'retread'. He watches from the sidelines like an injured bear, hoping Harry will make a mistake ...
