5.0 out of 5 stars Open-Unsolved Unit- aka Cold Case, 24 Jun. 2005
This review is from: The Closers (Hardcover)
Detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch is back in all his glory. Michael Connelly, in his eleventh novel, has brought Harry back to the Los Angeles Police Department. Harry had retired but after three years his feet were itchy to get back to his real love, LAPD. He was invited back by his old partner, Kismin Rider. She is a smart, tough but warm detective and very much respected by her peers.
Harry came back to the Open-Unsolved Unit (aka "cold case" squad). This excited him. He had so many unsolved crimes in his career, and in his mind he could picture many of them. On his first day at the squad he was obtaining coffee for his partner when his old nemesis, Deputy Chief Irvin S. Irving, gave him a warning, "Watch your step, Harry, there are many watching you!" This threat didn't bother Harry, but the fact that Irving sought him out made Harry wonder what the real story was all about. Later that day, Harry and Rizen were given their first case. Rebecca Verloren, 16, was discovered missing from her Chatsworth home many years ago, and now, there was a new DNA clue to help them solve this mystery.
Along the way Harry relies upon his skills, sometimes a bit rusty, but his "gut" is so sure that he knows what clues to look at and what is real and what is sometimes false. He gets back to his research, and the people he knew before he quit the job. Often, a long ago name or profile will surface, and we wonder how long will it be before this person shows up. A next door neighbor from Las Vegas from one of his last cases bears a remarkable resemblance to one of the people seen in a newspaper article that has a close relationship to this new case. Michael Connelly often inserts small clues about previous stories into his novels, and I find this piece of detective work thrilling. I look forward to each novel to find the most unlikely clues inserted in the most unlikely places.
Harry Bosch has arrived in this novel. He feels at home. He knows his job, he is a seasoned partner, but all the same, this is a new beginning. Harry does his best job and his best reasoning in this novel. Michael Connelly has found the heart of the man in this novel. "The Closers" is the best of the best and highly recommended. prisrob
