When I saw this book in the book box at bridge yesterday I was quite excited because I did not think I had read it. However, when I got home and checked I found that I listened to the audiobook (read by Len Cariou who was great) so I am not going to keep it.

This is what I said about the audiobook:
In one storyline Harry and his partner in the cold case squad have been handed a case to investigate. Forensics have matched a blood stain on the neck of a murder victim to a known sex offender. It's a bit of a mystery because at the time of the murder the sex offender would only have been 9 years old. So that's the storyline that I liked. While they are investigating it Harry meets a woman to whom he takes an instant liking.

However, before Harry can even get started on the case he gets called in to investigate a suspicious death that occurred the night before. The son of a city councillor (and former thorn in Harry's side) was found at the base of a hotel stark naked. Did he jump or did someone throw him off the balcony? And what was he doing in the hotel in the first place? This is the "high jingo" case because the chief of police, the city councillor and Harry's former partner, Kiz Ryder, all want a quick resolution but do they really want to hear the truth?

The endings to both storylines are pretty dramatic but the good news is that Harry is around for another 5 years. Look for more interesting cases with Harry Bosch.

I am taking this book to the Holiday BookCrossing Meetup. If no-one claims it you can find it on the shelf of the OBCZ.

When you find a BookCrossing book it is yours to do with what you like. You can read it and keep it or pass it on or if you don't think it is your kind of book pass it on to someone who might like it or release it in a spot for someone else to find like you just did. Whatever you choose it would be great if you could write a short note letting us know what new adventures the book is on.
