|Summary, etc.:|| "Detective Harry Bosch has retired from the LAPD, but his half-brother, defense attorney Mickey Haller, needs his help. The murder rap against his client seems ironclad, but Mickey is sure it's a setup. Though it goes against all his instincts, Bosch takes the case. With the secret help of his former LAPD partner Lucia Soto, he turns the investigation inside the police department. But as Bosch gets closer to discovering the truth, he makes himself a target"-- Provided by publisher.

*Starred Review* Harry Bosch has been forced into retirement by his enemies within the LAPD, and he's not taking it well. As he sits in his house in the Hollywood Hills and looks down at the traffic, "the slow moving river of steel and light," he knows that's where he belongs. His half-brother, lawyer Mickey Haller, star of Connelly's parallel series, offers Harry a way back into the game, but it comes at a high price: working for a defense lawyer after a career as a cop means going over to the dark side. Reluctantly, Bosch agrees to investigate the case against a former gang-banger seemingly turned straight, whose DNA was found on and in the body of a high-profile woman murdered in her bed. If Harry finds evidence suggesting the accused is guilty, he goes to the cops, mitigating somewhat the dark-side worries. What follows is a tour de force of criminal detection. Connelly painstakingly and brilliantly shows Bosch slogging after the truth, eventually recognizing that an expensive watch that the victim attempted to get repaired somehow holds the key to the case and then following this wispy filament of a lead on a circuitous path to the killers But the appeal here isn't all cerebral; the novel concludes with a stunning, bullets-flying set piece in which careful investigation turns suddenly to intense action, almost like a nuclear physicist's blackboard formulas exploding into atomic bombs. As always, Connelly's blackboard work is as precise as his finale is exciting. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With the popular and critically acclaimed TV series Bosch adding to Connelly's celebrity, his total-copies-sold figure of "more than 60 million" will soon need to recalculated, yet again.
