Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Narcotics officer Cal Moore's orders were to look into the city's latest drug killing. Instead, he ends up in a motel room with a fatal bullet wound to the head and a suicide note stuffed in his back pocket. Working the case, LAPD detective Harry Bosch is reminded of the primal police rule he learned long ago: Don't look for the facts, but the glue that holds them together. Soon Harry's making some very dangerous connections, starting with a dead cop and leading to a bloody string of murders that wind from Hollywood Boulevard to the back alleys south of the border. Now this battle-scarred veteran will find himself in the center of a complex and deadly game-one in which he may be the next and likeliest victim.

Suzanne Oxford, November 4, 2012 (view all comments by Suzanne Oxford)
I have read several of Michael Connelly's books and feel this is one of his best. LAPD detective Harry Bosch is assigned to the case of Cal Moore, who is found in a sleazy motel room, an apparent suicide. From the very beginning, Bosch has a bad feeling about this case -- things just do not add up and he seriously doubts this is a suicide. His investigation leads him to the dark underbelly of Hollywood, which few visitors ever see. Since Cal Moore was working with undercover agents on the Narcotics Squad, Bosch must explore the drug culture and why some dealers have mysteriously been found dead. This investigation will take him to Calexico and Mexicali where he tracks down some corrupt and shady business enterprises, which are really transporting drugs into the US. This is truly a complicated and tangled mystery, leading Harry to very dangerous territories, even threatening his own life. The conclusion will surely shock the reader, as you never suspect it to end this way. If you are tired of the same old crime novel with the same worn out endings, definitely read this novel. You will not be disappointed.
