By Michael Connelly
Harry Bosch has been given 3 years earlier than he needs to retire from the LAPD, and he desires circumstances extra fiercely than ever. in a single morning, he will get two.
DNA from a 1989 rape and homicide suits a 29-year-old convicted rapist. was once he an eight-year-old killer or has anything long gone extraordinarily flawed within the new nearby Crime Lab? The latter risk may possibly compromise the entire lab's DNA situations at the moment in court.
Then Bosch and his companion are referred to as to a demise scene fraught with inner politics. Councilman Irvin Irving's son jumped or was once driven from a window on the Chateau Marmont. Irving, Bosch's longtime nemesis, has demanded that Harry deal with the investigation.
Relentlessly pursuing either instances, Bosch makes chilling discoveries: a killer working unknown within the urban for as many as 3 many years, and a political conspiracy that is going again into the darkish historical past of the police division.
