Regulars will enjoy the latest Bosch novel,
This review is from: The Drop (Hardcover)Detective Bosch is back and investigates two crimes in Connelly's latest novel : the first involves a cold case sexual crime and the second the recent apparent suicide of an influential politician's son.
This is a great novel with strong investigative elements and just the right amount of often unsavoury politics at many levels.
One of the beauties of this Connelly novel is the absence of nonsense - there are no Batmobiles and Bosch is not Superman. The story is well-written and well-constructed, with plausible scenarios throughout as Bosch identifies clue after clue in each case. Connelly does exceptionally well in keeping us interested and guessing.
I really do like Bosch as a character but, at some point, he is going to have to spend a little more time with his daughter and in developing relationships!
I am not sure the ending is how I would have liked it, but that's about the only "blemish" I could find, and blemish is probably too strong a word. Happily too, no Kindle typo or formatting problems here.
In short, another great Connelly/Bosch novel. 9/10
