Summary

Detective Harry Bosch returns to the scene of a twenty-year-old crime . . .

The Black Box Summary

The Black Box by Michael Connelly

May 1992, and after four LAPD officers are acquitted following the savage beating of Rodney King, Los Angeles is ablaze. As looting and burning take over the city, law and order are swept away in a tidal wave of violence. But under threat of their lives, homicide detectives like Harry Bosch are still stubbornly trying to do their job. With no effective police presence on the streets, murder just got a whole lot easier - and investigating them a whole lot harder.

When Harry finds the body of a female journalist in an alley, he is forced to hand over the case to the Riot Crimes Task Force, knowing that it will never be solved.

Twenty years later, new evidence confirms her death was not a case of random violence but something much more personal. This time Harry is determined that the killer isn't going to escape - even if it means stepping back into the darkest days of the city he loves . . .

Connelly's Los Angeles cop Harry Bosch finds himself retired but roped in to try to reduce the growing pile of unsolved crimes in his city ... Bosch steps in proves his retirement is just as exciting, dangerous and gripping as his previous life. * THE TIMES *
For 20 years Connelly's creation Harry Bosch has been fighting crime in LA and the author is marking the anniversary with this taut and clever thriller ... a treat * SUNDAY MIRROR *
An engrossing slice of LA noir * MAIL ON SUNDAY *
THE BLACK BOX is another novel steeped in recent history ... it's a story that's as old as the genre itself but Connelly's skill is such that it all feels entirely fresh and vibrant, but heartbreakingly poignant too. * IRISH SUNDAY INDEPENDENT *
Another gripping and excellent thriller * THE SUN *
Another winner from Michael Connelly * CANDIS MAGAZINE *
