Connelly's Los Angeles cop Harry Bosch finds himself retired but roped in to try to reduce the growing pile of unsolved crimes in his city ... Bosch steps in proves his retirement is just as exciting, dangerous and gripping as his previous life. (THE TIMES)For 20 years Connelly's creation Harry Bosch has been fighting crime in LA and the author is marking the anniversary with this taut and clever thriller ... a treat (SUNDAY MIRROR)an engrossing slice of LA noir (MAIL ON SUNDAY)The Black Box is another novel steeped in recent history ... it's a story that's as old as the genre itself but Connelly's skill is such that it all feels entirely fresh and vibrant, but heartbreakingly poignant too. (Declan Burke IRISH SUNDAY INDEPENDENT)another gripping and excellent thriller (THE SUN)Another winner from Michael Connelly (CANDIS MAGAZINE)I'm a fan of police procedurals and one of the books I enjoyed the most this year was this latest Harry Bosch novel (Toby Young MAIL ON SUNDAY EVENT MAGAZINE) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition. May 1992, and after four LAPD officers were acquitted after the savage beating of Rodney King, Los Angeles is ablaze. As looting and burning take over the city, law and order are swept away in a tidal wave of violence. But under threat of their lives, homicide detectives like Harry Bosch are still stubbornly trying to do their job. With no effective police presence on the streets, murder just got a whole lot easier - and investigating them got a whole lot harder. Escorted by national guard soldiers from murder scene to murder scene, Harry and his colleagues are only able to do the bare minimum in terms of collecting evidence. And for Harry that's not enough. When he finds the body of a female journalist executed in an alley, he cannot accept that he will never be able to bring her killer to justice, and her tragedy starts to eat into his soul.
