"Publishers Weekly Review"
by Publishers Weekly,
"In Edgar-winner Connelly's compulsively readable and deeply satisfying 17th Harry Bosch novel (after 2010's The Reversal), Harry, still a member of the LAPD's 'Open-Unsolved Unit,' pursues two investigations. A recently unearthed DNA hit connects the 1989 murder of a young woman with Clayton Pell, a convicted sexual predator. But Pell couldn't have committed the crime because he was eight years old at the time. Meanwhile, Irv Irving, a city councilman and LAPD nemesis, wants Harry to look into the apparent suicide of his 46-year-old son, George, a well-connected lobbyist. The case smacks of politics ('high jingo,' Harry calls it), but he and partner David Chu do a by-the-book investigation to determine whether George fell from the seventh floor of the Chateau Marmont or was pushed. All of Connelly's considerable strengths are on display: the keen eye for detail and police procedure, lots of local L.A. color, clever plotting, and — most important — the vibrant presence of Harry Bosch."
