Cal Moore is a Narcotics officer looking at a recent drug killing. However he himself turns into a victim as he is found in a motel room in what looks like a suicide. Rumours start circulating about how Moore had crossed over to the criminal side by selling the latest drug of choice Black Ice.
Harry Bosch doesn't understand it. It may look like a suicide but his instincts are telling him otherwise. His superiors tell him in no uncertain terms to stay away from the case but Harry soon starts his own investigation and is determined to find out the truth. The truth can only be found by Harry visiting Mexico but with it comes the danger of corruption and his own life being on the line.
I decided a while ago that I wanted to tackle the Harry Bosch series of books by Michael Connelly in order. I read his first novel a long time ago but it had been so long that I figured I should just start again at book 2 and try to read one every few weeks. Michael Connelly is a very successful author like many other crime greats such as Peter James, James Patterson and Lee Child but his writing style is not necessarily the same. Yes there are parallels in the majority of the crime genre books but that is to be expected. The one thing that is instantly noticeable for me is his attention to detail. This may not be favourable for some people but for me it makes a refreshing change. The other advantage to the detail is the advantage of getting to know why characters make the decision they do, especially when you know that this is an ongoing series.
The main character is Hieronymus (Harry) Bosch who is an ex-Vietnam soldier who is now on the force. Harry is a great character who is your typical cop who is strong willed and does things his way.Read more ›

Although you find the same messed-up character of the first one, it is not a separated episode, because... Read more
