#1 Fiction bestseller in Australia and the US
Harry Bosch is back as a volunteer working cold cases for the San Fernando police and is called out to a local drug store where a young pharmacist has been murdered. Bosch and the town's three-person detective squad sift through the clues, which lead into the dangerous, big business world of prescription drug abuse.
Meanwhile, an old case from Bosch's LAPD days comes back to haunt him when a long-imprisoned killer claims Harry framed him, and seems to have new evidence to prove it. Bosch left the LAPD on bad terms, so his former colleagues aren't keen to protect his reputation. He must fend for himself in clearing his name and keeping a clever killer in prison.
The two unrelated cases wind around each other like strands of barbed wire. Along the way Bosch discovers that there are two kinds of truth: the kind that sets you free and the kind that leaves you buried in darkness.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The 20th book in Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch series is a romping mystery that sees Bosch—now retired and in his sixties—volunteering as a cold-case investigator. A job from his past comes back to haunt him: a death-row killer claims Bosch framed him and says he has evidence to prove it. While working to defend himself, Bosch proves he’s lost none of his verve and investigatory smarts. Connelly’s writing is as fast-paced as ever; his nuanced portrayal of the aging Bosch and his sharp-eyed characterizations give this gripping thriller real-life urgency.

Another Brilliant Effort
As much as I tried to pace myself and make this book last, it was simply too gripping to put down. My only regret is how long I'll have to spend waiting for another. Micheal Connelly is hands-down the best crime thriller writer of this generation.
