This is the first book of the thrilling Harry Bosch Series. Although this book isn't my favorite of the series, it really sets you up and helps you get to know Harry and how he operates. Michael Connely is a fantastic writer who gets better and better with each book he writes! This series gets your heart pounding as Harry Bosch gets closer and closer to the killer. When the book is over, only then will you realize you were holding your breath the whole time, and you won't be able to wait to pick up the next in the series.

If you are planning to read this series I suggest that you go to Michael Connelly's web site and get a list of all his books. He also has the Terry McCaleb, Jack McEvoy, Rachel Walling and Mickey Haller series that all intertwine with the Harry Bosch series. I recommend that you read the books in the order they were written because it lets you get to know and understand these characters as they will all come into contact and have relations with Harry Bocsh in the following books. Enjoy!

    Needs to research!!

    It is VERY clear that the author knows nothing of firearms, explosives or thier use. Harry didn't smell Cordite after C4 jad been used and the pd could tell that guns were full auto based on the impressions the butt plates made in the dirt!! Wow Mr Connelly can send me his next draft and I will edit the firearms,explosives and medical passages for free!

    Blah...

    I usually love mystery and crime stories but I am literally forcing myself through this book, it's very slow and I dont feel it is written very well. I seem to be the odd one out because this book is getting great reviews, which is why I purchased it in the first place...I will keep trying...
