In his first case with the Homicide Special Squad, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch must follow his instincts to stop a killer who could destroy the entire city -- even as the FBI works against him.
Near Mulholland Drive, Dr. Stanley Kent is found shot twice in the back of the head. It's the case LAPD detective Harry Bosch has been waiting for, his first since being recruited to the Homicide Special Squad. When he discovers that Kent had access to dangerous radioactive substances, what begins as a routine investigation becomes something darker, more deadly, and frighteningly urgent. Bosch is soon in conflict with not only his superiors but the FBI, which thinks the case is too important for just a cop. Complicating his job even more is the presence of Agent Rachel Walling, his onetime lover. Now guarding one slim advantage, Bosch relentlessly follows his own instincts, hoping they are still sharp enough to find the truth -- and a killer who can annihilate an entire city.

    It's great. This one is a page turner. Even though I can guess who did the deed since the beginning as I think Mr. Connelly left us some clues, it's still very entertaining to see when they all came together.

    Disappointed. Have loved all of Connolly's books. This one left me cold.
  • Probably the weakest Bosch novel so far

    By Emily Gilmour
    I have read them all in order, and while I am a big fan of harry's, this one was just really weak. Disappointing plot, shallow characters.... Hope Connelly isn't running out of steam....
  • Bosch

    By K Wright
    Connelly once again transports you into the streets of LA and the mind of Harry Bosch. This time in a race against terrorists and time where nothing is as it seems. He delivers as usual in this tightly wound mystery.
  • Very good.
