Overview

Angels Flight (Harry Bosch Series #6) by Michael Connelly

The man most hated by the LAPD - a black lawyer who has made his name by bringing lawsuits alleging racism and brutality by police officers - has been found murdered on the eve of a high profile trial. The list of suspects include half of the police force. And Harry Bosch is the detective chosen to head the investigation.

The political dangers of the case are huge. If it's not investigated fairly, the public outcry could make the Rodney King riots look tame. But a full investigation will take Bosch into the ugliest corners of law enforcement.

Reviewed by Stephen Brayton for Readers' Favorite A lawyer who makes his living by bringing lawsuits against the Los Angeles police department and a bystander are shot on one of the Angels Flight trolley cars. Detective Hieronymus Bosch and his team get called out of rotation to run the investigation. The city is, again, starting to heat up, as the lawyer, Howard Elias, was black. Even from the beginning, Bosch discovers no end of suspects. Besides the seemingly endless string of potentially vindictive cops, Elias had a girlfriend and, also, was involved in pornography - both print and online. Elias' philandering brings in a motive for his wife and son. Bosch has to wade through the evidence while at the same time not get sucked into office politics. One of the cases Elias was working on centered around a black man accused of killing a white child. Bosch finds indications that Elias knew the real killer's identity. The case, however, is not the only thing affecting Bosch's emotions. He also has to deal with his failing marriage of just over a year because his wife is addicted to gambling. Connelly's Bosch mysteries are guaranteed to include excellent police procedure, intrigue, police politics, and that one special clue that breaks open the investigation, even when the case looks solved. Angels Flight is no exception. When those in charge named the killer, I knew the story had more to offer. I knew Bosch had yet to conclude the case. I've enjoyed Connelly mysteries for many years. There's never a disappointing moment and each chapter brought something new that kept me guessing. Connelly's style is such that I felt as if I stood next to Bosch throughout the entire few days, seeing what he saw and feeling his emotions. Every Bosch novel is a winner and I look forward to the next one.

The Bosch series just continues to get better with each book. I thought Angels Flight started out just a little slow, but once the pace picked up, it really got rolling. Connelly is a master at this genre, developing believeable plot and side storylines and producing characters with depth. I have no intention of stopping here - gonna keep reading all the Bosch books in order.

If you love detective stories Harry Bosch is one of the BEST! Angles Flight is great but I highly recommend if you read this series begin with the first one. I started with number 10 and had to go back and read all of them. I am now on 11. (They are so good I read number 10 about two months ago).

I am currently reading all of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series in order, and I LOVE them. I am a big mystery/detective story fan, and I have tried so many different series from different authors, but I finally found the one for me! What can I say? I often find myself not really liking the main characters in novels, but I truly like Harry; he is a good guy - not perfect, but he works hard, isn't a womanizer, and isn't overly macho. All of the stories are well-written, realistic, contain surprises and twists, and keep me hooked until the very end. My favorites have been The Black Echo (#1), The Concrete Blonde (#3), Trunk Music (#5), City of Bones (#8), The Narrows (#10), although again - I enjoyed all of them. If you like detective mystery novels, you won't be disappointed with Michael Connelly and Harry Bosch.

Lots of twist and turns.  Feel the book gave enough background that if you hadn't read the others you could have followed the characters.  I was with it right up to the end, would have liked justice for the child.  Peaked you're interest?  Read and find out.
