Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: 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 across 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.

    *Starred Review* After debuting a new series lead, night-shift detective Renée Ballard, in The Late Show (2017), Connelly returns to everybody's favorite hard-bitten cop, Harry Bosch. Harry's gig as a part-timer working cold cases for the San Fernando PD suddenly gets much hotter when the sleepy suburb becomes the scene of a double murder at a pharmacy. The regular detectives look to Harry for help, and soon enough, he finds himself doing something he's never done: going undercover to expose an elaborate scam involving the distribution of opiates. It's not the best time for Harry to go underground, as he's also knee-deep in another scam, this one designed to make him the fall guy when a killer on death row claims Harry framed him decades ago. Connelly cleverly brings Harry's half brother, defense attorney Mickey Haller (The Lincoln Lawyer, 2005), into the story, along with other characters from Harry's LAPD past, including former partners Jerry Edgar and Lucia Soto. Expertly juggling both plots, Connelly mines the double murder for fascinating and frightening details about the opiate epidemic while using the case against Harry as a way of deepening the complex relationship between Bosch and Haller as well as giving Haller a chance to display his dazzling legal legerdemain. Connelly remains atop the heap of contemporary crime writers thanks to his rare ability to combine master plotting and procedural detail with a literary novelist's feel for the inner lives of his or her characters. Both talents are on abundant display this time.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The success of Amazon's Bosch series, starring the superb Titus Welliver as Harry, has only served to increase the popularity of the genre's most compelling character.
