The only problem is that the plot twists and turns are for the main part too predictable - there's very little other alternatives with the racing speed weight that the cast list keeps itself to, so the pleasure is not so much in trying to work out who did what, but in watching Bosch track the perpetrator down.
Nevertheless, a satisfying - if somewhat undeveloped - read. Steven King used to put manuscripts of books that hadn't quite worked out right into a trunk, where they would be unearthed and worked on at a later date, or if a contract needed fulfilling quickly, and this feels a bit like one of those 'Bachman' books. I enjoyed this - it's far superior to most crime fiction out there - but Connelly has set himself a high bar to jump over; he is judged by his own high standards.
Don't expect to work too hard reading this book - enjoy it for what it is - a quick checking-in on Bosch as he encounters a relatively simple (but stressful) case. Quick and light. And enjoyable!
A man is murdered, dangerous materials stolen, wife threatened. Who did it. I'll leave it to you to find out and it won't take too long.
That could be the root of the problem here, everything got solved so easily and all of a sudden, wham, it was finished.
Of course I didn't realise the story was over because several pages remained and it seemed as if there was some way to go. As I turned over from what was the last page I found Michael Connelly had "intervewed" Harry Bosch and it was printed on the next few pages. This was a novel idea and it was good to see that Bosch was just as single minded out of script as he is on it...!
I recommend not buying this book which as the French say is "Cousu de fil blanc"and hardly worth reading except for completing the series.
If you haven't read any of this series go to [...].uk to see the Harry Bosch novels in sequence [over 20] & start at the beginning & work your way through............ but it's a bit like watching "The Killing" it's awful when you get to the end & you're not quite sure what to do with yourself,but hey?!!
This was apparently serialised in an American newspaper and in this format would certainly work - and maybe he should have thought about his Charles Dicken's reference and learnt from him- the master at newspaper installments!
On the other hand, Connelly is a great writer and this is a change to his normal style. I did not feel short changed by the length of the book because it reflected that the whole crime was solved within 12 hours. I agree with G J Weeks (review below) that this is a good holiday/flight read that doesn't require too much concentration but has merit and is enjoyable.
