Library Journal Review

In Connelly's 17th Harry Bosch procedural, the Los Angeles police detective has been placed on the Deferred Retirement Option Plan (DROP). Although facing retirement in three years, Bosch seeks challenging cases to test his mental, physical, and moral strength. Good for Harry, he gets two: the DNA match of an eight-year-old boy associated with the rape of a teenage girl in 1989 and the surprising death of a city councilman's son, who was pushed or had fallen from a hotel window. Connelly tightly twists the two cases with conflicting power grabs, plausible procedural barriers, and unexpected snafus to support his credible plot. Furthering his noble cause to root out evil, Bosch exhibits an unshakable and highly respected integrity that will not be swayed from the truth. Verdict If Connelly's engaging plot doesn't hit you between the eyes, Bosch's insights and integrity will. Mystery fans as well as general readers will appreciate this engrossing novel. Order multiple copies. [See Prepub Alert, 5/16/11.]-Jerry Miller, GSLIS, Simmons Coll., Boston (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
