Is this the end of the road for Harry Bosch?,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Drop (Hardcover)As ever Michael Connelly pulls out a tremendous page turner of a story. The novel rattles along and as ever there are a couple of twists and turns. But what struck me most about this latest story is the way in which a sense of melancholia underpins the narrative. This is not a spoiler alert. The ending is rather downbeat but this is consistent with the way in which Harry Bosch reflects on his role as a detective and a father. This is a man trying to come to terms with his own mortality (finding time to be a better father) and the extent to which he can still reconcile his own values, his personal integrity, with the values of the LAPD. As I closed the book it struck me that this could very well be the final HB novel - and there's even a hint that the baton may be passed onto the next generation in the very near future. Maybe I'm wrong but ultimately there's only so much mileage in any character. I hope I'm wrong but if not so be it.
April 2012 I'm pleased to read that I was wrong and a new HB novel, The Black Box, is due out later this year

I was wondering whether Michael Connelly would try a YA series with Maddie at the realm, others have been doing it recently. Having said that I do hope there are more in the Bosch series.
