Another atmospheric, gripping, captivating case for Harry Bosch
on 27 October 2016
It has been more than 10 years since I read any of the Harry Bosch stories and more than twenty years since this book was first published. In that time the world of police detection has changed immensely, partly as a result of developments in technology and the forensic sciences. However, this story stands the test of time well.
The story hooks you virtually from the start and is a real 'page-turner', in part due to the crisp, taut writing which makes it very easy to read. There are lots of twists and turns as the story unfolds and the ending caught me totally by surprise.
These early Harry Bosch novels are a real delight to re-visit. If you haven't read any yet, I would recommend you read them in order starting with The Black Echo, as then you will see how well Michael Connelly develops the character of Harry Bosch in this gripping second novel, The Black Ice.
