Product Description

Amazon Review

Michael Connolly has written seven books featuring the hard-boiled Vietnam vet-turned-LAPD detective Harry Bosch and Lost Light sees him ride again. The astringent and vivid realisation of the city of Los Angeles (quite as sharply done as in the great novels of Raymond Chandler) and the layers of complexity created for Bosch made him one of the most interesting and well-realised characters in modern crime fiction. Even the overused device of alcohol abuse in the detective was treated with freshness and imagination. Such non-Bosch titles as Chasing the Dime have their virtues, but most admirers will frankly be relieved that Harry is back in action.

When Harry Bosch left the LAPD, he took with him a murder file about a film production assistant killed four years before during a large-scale robbery on a movie set. The LAPD has decided that the stolen money was utilised to create a terrorist training camp, and there are moves to release the killer to enable the FBI to track down the terrorists. Needless to say, this does not go down well with the volatile Harry, and he soon finds himself up against his erstwhile colleagues at the LAPD and the implacable forces of the FBI.

In the earlier Bosch novels, it's clear that the flintily wrought characterisation and gritty scene-setting concealed some less-than-original plots, but here we've got a triumphant marriage of innovative, hard-edge narrative and a parade of characters quite as vivid as any in the genre. The set pieces have all the usual panache, and the larger and more detailed canvas is carried off with considerable dash. --Barry Forshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Taut, pacy and with an agreeably dark atmosphere, this is a welcome return for the grizzled but all-to-human Harry Bosch. -- GOOD BOOK GUIDE

[An] enthralling and labyrinthine crime novel. -- The Sunday Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Harry Bosch, now officially retired, has time on his hands. But, he still feels the pull of the job, and knows deep down that finding justice for the dead is, for him, not just a job, but a life. And so, he begins to look into a four year old unsolved case that has fallen by the investigatorial wayside, the vicious murder of Angella Benton, a film production assistant, killer just a few days before a daring $2million robbery on a movie set. Bosch gradually uncovers new information, throwing the case into an entirely different light, and finds that, even though he’s now left the LAPD, trouble still won’t leave him alone…
This is a tremendously successful Bosch novel from Connelly, surely the finest American exponent of the gritty cop thriller. It’s plot may not be entirely engrossing, but this book has so much in it about Bosch – no doubt helped by the fact that it’s told in the first person – that that doesn’t matter. Indeed, I don’t think Connelly has ever dug quite so deep, or shined his light quite so far into the mysterious dark cavern that is Harry Bosch, which makes this book a real delight for all fans of the series. To be honest, I feel that this book is primarily about Bosch, Bosch and Bosch (oh, and maybe L.A. too), so if you want a novel with a strong plot, maybe pass this by just for now. Although, I’d certainly recommend Lost Light to all those who are already fans. But, as the plot isn’t Connelly’s best (even though it does turn into something quite special at the books fascinating climax) those looking to just try the series out, should probably try an earlier one.
It’s fresh, it’s very well written, it’s engaging, and it even has another final page revelation to shock the reader, making this another gem among the treasure-trove that is Connelly’s work.

I'm not usually one for a crime novel, and after hearing good things, i gave this book a go. From the start you get pulled into the world and mind of Harry Bosch, and the mystery of his case unfolding.
The plot is based on an unsolved murder case which Bosch felt attached to and after retiring as a cop wants to complete it for peace of mind. However, the case is much deeper and dangerous than he thought!(dont want to give anything away!)
Great charectors, No cheesy bits, Fab ending, No need to skip a few pages when nothings going on in the book! My first encounter with Micheal Connelly and i hope to find another of his just as good as this. Even if crime novels arent your key passion you'll still get hooked on this.

Format: Paperback
Harry Bosch has always been on a mission: to speak for the dead, especially those who other people seem to forget about. Now retired from the LAPD, Harry can't forget about one case where the murdered woman's hands seemingly reach out to him. After investigating more, the mystery involves the heist of 2 million dollars from a Hollywood movie set, the shooting of two cops, and the disappearance of an FBI agent. Without his badge, Harry runs into the problems of most P.I.s--access to evidence and witnesses. The strongest part of the story is when Harry butts heads with an elite counter-terrorism unit of the FBI. Connelly's superior writing talent is on display in this book, where he seamlessly tells stories within the story to provide background for characters and add color to particular scenes. What I like most is the way Harry uses silence and draws out the information he wants from people. His indirect approach is clever and refreshing. My only criticism is that with the constant reminders of the victim's hands, the title doesn't seem apt.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By 100wordreviewer on 25 July 2007
Format: Paperback
Michael Connelly has given us a series of crime thrillers featuring the eccentrically named detective Harry (Hieronymus) Bosch. I've never read a duff one yet. In "Lost Light", Harry must solve the murder of an innocent girl with the help of a detective left paralysed by an apparently unrelated shooting, while holding at arm's length the combined forces of post-9/11 FBI and Homeland Security. This is clever, intriguing stuff, with Connelly's usual level of convincing detail and Bosch himself as brilliant, right-on and - where necessary - as tough as ever, even if a water bottle does come to his aid at a key moment. The only downside for me was that that FBI/Homeland Security angle did not ring as true as Connelly's more usual detective stock-in-trade. If you like this, try "A Darkness more than Night"; "The Poet" or "The Black Ice", all reviewed here.

Summary: enjoyable page-turner with solid plot, slightly less convincing when dealing with terrorism-related issues.

Format: Paperback
Harry Bosch has finally done it: he has turned in his batch and retired. But even after eight months there are still a couple of unsolved murder cases that keep nagging him. He has made copies of the files and decides to work on the murder of a young woman working at a film company. When he starts digging into the case he gets more attention then he bargained for, especially from the new Anti-Terrorism Squad of the FBI. It takes all his skills and perseverance to bring this case to a good end. And what are the roles of a paralyzed ex-cop, a former DA-turned-lawyer and Harry's ex-wife? And the biggest surprise of them all is right on the last page and it makes you wonder what will happen to Harry. Another highly entertaining book by my favourite detective author.
