Staff Reviews

Do you need a new series? Do you like police detective mysteries? Let me introduce you to my new BFF Michael Connelly and Detective Harry Bosch. If you want old school, he's your guy. Full of enough twists and turns to keep you guessing but not so gritty you need to skip dinner. The series starts in the late 90's in Los Angeles. if you enjoy this, check out the series Bosch on TV.

— Beth


An LAPD homicide detective must choose between justice and vengeance as he teams up with the FBI in this "thrilling" novel filled with mystery and adventure (New York Times Book Review).

For maverick LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch, the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal . . . because the murdered man was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who had fought side by side with him in a hellish underground war. Now Bosch is about to relive the horror of Nam. From a dangerous maze of blind alleys to a daring criminal heist beneath the city, his survival instincts will once again be tested to their limit. Pitted against enemies inside his own department and forced to make the agonizing choice between justice and vengeance, Bosch goes on the hunt for a killer whose true face will shock him.
