The fifth Harry Bosch book sees him back in Homicide after disciplinary leave picking up his first case. A corpse in the trunk of a white Rolls Royce, it looks like a mob hit. The investigation takes Bosch to Las Vagas, again a mob connection, and here he stumbles on Eleanor Wish.
Wish appeared in Connelly’s debut novel THE BLACK ECHO as an FBI agent who Bosch was involved with but who… well I can’t tell you about that bit. Anyway her circumstances are very different five years on. The relationship now between Wish and Bosch is a little unconvincing, but looks like she will be a long term character. The investigation is good – I didn’t see where it was going and again this is well put together page turner.
