When a body is found in a hotel room, reporters are soon all over the case: it appears to be a missing LAPD narcotics detective, apparently gone to the bad. The rumours were that he had been selling a new drug called Black Ice that had been infiltrating Los Angeles from the Mexican cartel.
The LAPD are quick to declare the death a suicide, but Harry Bosch is not so sure. There are odd mysteries and unexplained details from the crime scene which just don't add up. Fighting an attraction to the detective's widow, Bosch starts his own maverick investigation, which soon leads him over the borders and into a dangerous world of shifting identities, police politics and deadly corruption . . .
In this surehanded sequel to The Black Echo , LAPD detective Hieronymous ``Harry'' Bosch stalks drug traffickers in L.A. and Mexico.

Another great book by michael connelly
Not my favourite
I love the Bosch books but this wasn’t my favourite. I prefer him when he is investigating a murder and that is the essence of the story, here it is a drug related crime story, moves from L.A. to Mexico and has lots of sub plots going on that in my opinion detract from the best of Bosch.
Took a long time to gather pace!
I have read most Harry Bosch novels,but I am afraid this novel did not gather pace until half the book was read.
