Customer Review

on 6 June 2006
Harry Bosch has always been on a mission: to speak for the dead, especially those who other people seem to forget about. Now retired from the LAPD, Harry can't forget about one case where the murdered woman's hands seemingly reach out to him. After investigating more, the mystery involves the heist of 2 million dollars from a Hollywood movie set, the shooting of two cops, and the disappearance of an FBI agent. Without his badge, Harry runs into the problems of most P.I.s--access to evidence and witnesses. The strongest part of the story is when Harry butts heads with an elite counter-terrorism unit of the FBI. Connelly's superior writing talent is on display in this book, where he seamlessly tells stories within the story to provide background for characters and add color to particular scenes. What I like most is the way Harry uses silence and draws out the information he wants from people. His indirect approach is clever and refreshing. My only criticism is that with the constant reminders of the victim's hands, the title doesn't seem apt.
