Michael Connelly has given us a series of crime thrillers featuring the eccentrically named detective Harry (Hieronymus) Bosch. I've never read a duff one yet. In "Lost Light", Harry must solve the murder of an innocent girl with the help of a detective left paralysed by an apparently unrelated shooting, while holding at arm's length the combined forces of post-9/11 FBI and Homeland Security. This is clever, intriguing stuff, with Connelly's usual level of convincing detail and Bosch himself as brilliant, right-on and - where necessary - as tough as ever, even if a water bottle does come to his aid at a key moment. The only downside for me was that that FBI/Homeland Security angle did not ring as true as Connelly's more usual detective stock-in-trade. If you like this, try "A Darkness more than Night"; "The Poet" or "The Black Ice", all reviewed here.
Summary: enjoyable page-turner with solid plot, slightly less convincing when dealing with terrorism-related issues.
