Synopses & Reviews

From Powells.com:

"Lost Light is fast and furious, with the murder's implications expanding the investigation far and wide, possibly implicating police corruption, FBI conspiracy, and international terrorism. The twists and turns are never predictable, and are revealed in Connelly's trademark breakneck pace. But Connelly doesn't miss a beat, with plots that are meticulous, dense, and always satisfying....Connelly is one of the best at what he does, and Lost Light is an excellent addition to an exceptionally fine series." Georgie Lewis, Powells.com (read the entire Powells.com review)

Publisher Comments:

Only the money was real.

L.A.P.D. detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with two million dollars cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. Bosch got off a shot that struck one of the robbers as their van sped away, but the money was never recovered. And the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the L.A.P.D.

Now Bosch moves full-bore back into that case, determined to find justice for the young woman. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear in the guilty, he learns afresh how brutally indifferent the world can be. But something draws him on, past humiliation and harassment. It's not just that the dead woman had no discernible link to the robbery. Nor is it his sympathy for the cops who took the case over, one of them killed on duty and the other paralyzed by a bullet in the same attack. With every conversation and every thread of evidence, Bosch senses a larger presence, an organization bigger than the movie studios and more ruthless than even the LAPD. The part of Bosch that will never back down finds as fatal an opponent as he's ever encountered ? and there's no guarantee that Bosch will survive the showdown ahead.

In this breakneck, intricate, and powerful new novel, Michael Connelly takes us a step further into the complex character of Harry Bosch and delivers a book that is as close to the classic investigations of Raymond Chandler as anything written today. Lost Light marks Connelly's most stunning achievement yet, further proof that he is "the most talented of crime writers" (The New Yorker).

Review:

"Amazingly, Connelly manages to keep every new curve not only clear but breathlessly exciting. Mystery fans will cherish echoes of The Doorbell Rang and The Long Goodbye, but the best news is that prodigious Connelly hasn?t been content simply to echo his own earlier successes." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"It's never pretty watching Harry edge toward connection with those he loves and then back away, drawn by the pain of others, but it just may be the most compelling train wreck in crime fiction." Bill Ott, Booklist (Starred Review)

Review:

"As always, Connelly does many things well....His prose is increasingly lean and muscular, although he offers an occasional homage to his first hero, Raymond Chandler....His plot, so seemingly straightforward, builds to a series of surprises, both in the investigation and in Harry's personal life." Patrick Anderson, The Washington Post

Review:

"Like his creator, [Harry Bosch] never disappoints. In Lost Light, Michael Connelly ventures into new territory by having the taciturn Bosch narrate the story. It takes nerve and skill to tinker with a formula as successful as the Bosch series. Happily, Connelly has plenty of both....Lost Light has all of the ingenious plotting and skillful writing that are Connelly's hallmarks." The Baltimore Sun

Review:

"[O]nce Harry picks up his saxophone, figuratively speaking, he returns to well-worn, familiar Connelly territory....Lost Light is B-level Bosch..." Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Synopsis:

The vision has haunted him for four years--a young woman lying crumpled in death, her hand outstretched in silent supplication. Harry Bosch was taken off the Angella Benton murder case when the production assistant's death was linked with the violent theft of two million dollars from a movie set. Both files were never closed. Now retired from the L.A.P.D., Bosch is determined to find justice for Angella. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear into the guilty, he's on his own. And even in the face of an opponent more powerful and ruthless than any he's ever encountered, Bosch is not backing down.

Synopsis:

In his latest "New York Times" bestseller, Connelly brings lone wolf Harry Bosch out of retirement and on a wild excursion into evil, seeking the truth about a cold case that still haunts the LAPD, movie studios--and Bosch himself.
