From Our Editors

Angels Flight is a trolley, attracting L.A. locals and tourists alike. On this day, one of the city’s most notable and controversial attorneys is a passenger in the vehicle. Most unfortunately, he is the victim of a vicious murder while travelling on the trolley. The lieutenant assigns cop Harry Bosch to the case but it won’t be easy trying to narrow down the suspects considering most of the dead attorneys enemies are boys and girls in blue. Can Harry conduct a fair investigation and still keep his job — not to mention his life? Michael Connelly shows two sides of the law in Angels Flight.

Journal Entry 2 by wingAceofHeartswing from Mississauga, Ontario Canada on Thursday, August 14, 2008
You just have to love Harry Bosch. This time he is called in to investigate a murder that doesn't happen in his jurisdiction. He is one of the few cops that the victim hasn't had dealings with in court. The victim, Howard Elias, is an activist lawyer who helps clients who feel they have been wronged by the police. His trial record is great and the police hate his guts.

Lucky Bosch gets to investigate the crime. The suspects number many and the prime suspect is a former partner. Bosch must now separate the BS from the facts amidst keeping his own life. He is walking a fine line and of course the whole city's attention is focused on him. Irving, his boss, wants this resolved now and is willing to take the easy road rather than the right road.

Meanwhile, Bosch's marriage of 1 year is on the ropes and he doesn't know what to do.

This was my favourite so far. This series just gets better and better.

Harry Bosch is back on at it when he's called in to a double homicide at Angels Flight. Except this case needs to be handled with extra care. The victim is Howard Elias, a lawyer who made it his life's missions to sue the LAPD and was in the middle of a case where he claimed that the LAPD tortured an innocent man and framed him for a murder.

Both IAD and the FBI are called in for this case, bringing characters back from previous Bosch novels. While working round the clock to solve this crime, Bosch also has to deal with problems in his personal life and his wife becomes distant.

I thought this novel was the best so far in the Bosch series. There are so many pieces that need to be fit together for Bosch to solve this case, yet he has enough personality to keep the reader interested and rooting for him. I'm looking forward to the next in the series!
