From the Publisher
Fed up with the hypocrisy and bureaucracy of the LAPD, Harry Bosch has retired.But the life of a retiree doesn''t suit him.He has devoted himself to law enforcement out of a deep drive to see justice done equally for all.On his own, he is still drawn toward the abyss. And when he rediscovers a startling, unsolved murder among the old case files he''s been poring over, he knows he can''t rest until he finds the killer, with or without a badge. Moving ever further inside the remarkable character of Harry Bosch, whom the New York Post calls ''the quintessential mystery book hero,'' Michael Connelly takes another step closer to the classic novels of Raymond Chandler in this breakneck, relentless, and potent new novel

Journal Entry 2 by wingAceofHeartswing from Mississauga, Ontario Canada on Sunday, April 11, 2010
When Harry Bosch retired from the LAPD he took a file of cold cases with him. Cases he was determined to find justice for.

Bosch was on a movie set asking some questions about a murder he was investigating when the delivery for a large cash outlay for a movie production went all wrong. Thieves hit the set, the money disappeared and a man was shot. Also involved or thought to be involved was the murder of the accountant, a young woman. Bosch, now wants to solve his former case but no longer has the authority of the police department behind him.

Although no link from the murder to the robbery exists Bosch's intuition says that it does. One of the policeman originally investigating the case is dead and the other is in a wheelchair. Bosch's dogginess and stubbornness is his best asset as he keeps at it in spite of overwhelming odds to find the perpetrator.

Bosch seems to come into his own as he is now his own boss. Several of characters from past stories show up, some of them not too happy with Bosch and the way he left the LAPD. Eleanor, Bosch's ex-wife also helps him and it is nice to see this relationship grow ever so slightly.

I love Connelly's Bosch series and look forward to the next in the series.

Journal Entry 3 by HoserLauren at Toronto, Ontario Canada on Friday, December 31, 2010
Former Detective Harry Bosch has finally retired but can't let one case go. The case was from four years prior and involved a murdered actress and a $2 million heist, taken place within a week. Bosch is forced to hand the investigation over to another team and within a year of the case, the two lead investigators are caught in a shoot-out. One dies and the other becomes paralyzed.

Bosch visits the paralyzed cop to try and get more details about the case and then is warned off by his old partner because there are bigger forces at work. The FBI soon warns Bosch off and he is taken and held in a cell for half a day as a "warning". That doesn't convince Bosch to give up because he can't let this case go.

This wasn't my favourite book in the Bosch series but it was still good. I found the FBI part of the case a bit over the top and got tired of everyone tailing Bosch around. When it was finally revealed who the culprit was, I didn't find it too satisfying because Bosch had spent so long chasing other leads that felt pretty unrelated.
