Description

An LAPD homicide detective must choose between justice and vengeance as he teams up with the FBI in the first novel of the "thrilling" Harry Bosch series (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.

    I had seen Michael Connelly's books on the bookshelf for so long but I had never picked it up. It's truely my loss. I watched Bosch as TV series and I was so hooked to this character and the story that I though it would be best to start reading Harry Bosch series from the beginning. That's a great decision as this book is so good you just can't put it down.

    Another excellent Connelly book. He is one of the best mystery writers. It is difficult to put his books down. Very fast reads. I only have 2 left to read and will wait impatiently for his next book.

    Bought on iBook cause I was down to a few $$$$ on my account. Man am I glad I did. Real page turner from the get go. Ending well disguised until close to finishing. Have to check and see if some of Connelly's older books and Harry are on sale. If you like detective books this is for you.

    Move over James Patterson, you've just been replaced as the No. 1 mystery writer.
  • Well?...

    A fun read with some real page turner moments, but I gotta say, quite a few holes in the story, and you'll never buy the romance.
  • Great read!

    Just finished this book last night. I am not a big reader, but Connelly is a masterful story teller! His attention to detail draws you in, while plot twists keep you coming back for more. Really a great read. I am looking forward to getting started on "The Black Ice" today.
