Angels Flight

by Connelly Michael

Little Brown | December 16, 1998 | Hardcover

Angels Flight is rated 5 out of 5 by 5.
The man most hated by the LAPD - a black lawyer who has made his name by bringing lawsuits alleging racism & brutality by police officers - has been found murdered on the eve of a high-profile trial. The list of suspects includes half of the police force, & 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. To make matters worse, Bosch's wife, Eleanor, has disappeared. Bosch fears she has left him - or succumbed to her gambling addiction. He's not sure which would be worse. Angels Flight reads in a white heat.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilling Michael Connelly has up'd the bar on himself. Another Harry Bosch novel that is sure to please. I suspected who the real villan was from the beginning, but this did not take away the thrill of reading the multiple threads, twists and turns of an excellent plot. It does however, come to a quick end, which I think I would have written a bit differently. Another 5 star, highly recommended for Connelly fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Series keeps getting better! Harry Bosch is back on at it when he's called in to a double homicide at Angels Flight. Except this case needs to be handled with extra care. The victim is Howard Elias, a lawyer who made it his life's missions to sue the LAPD and was in the middle of a case where he claimed that the LAPD tortured an innocent man and framed him for a murder. Both IAD and the FBI are called in for this case, bringing characters back from previous Bosch novels. While working round the clock to solve this crime, Bosch also has to deal with problems in his personal life and his wife becomes distant. I thought this novel was the best so far in the Bosch series. There are so many pieces that need to be fit together for Bosch to solve this case, yet he has enough personality to keep the reader interested and rooting for him. I'm looking forward to the next in the series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Angels Flight Harry Bosch has become my hero. It became a very good read. Obstacles at every turn and and a few red herrings thrown in. I like Harry, but he has personal problems besides the murder to solve. Kept me going till the end, to find out "who dun it".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Angels Flight Connelly's latest again features Harry Bosch and his team from the LAPD. Howard Elias, a civil rights lawyer with a propensity for suing the police, is found murdered on an inclined railway system. Bosch is called in to solve the murder with the least amount of political ruffling. Connelly's novels never disappoint. the plots are believable, the characters interesting. I sped through this one and will eagerly await the next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Angels Flight This was a very fast-paced novel from beginning to end. It's about the murder of a well known L.A. lawyer who has built his success on lawsuits against the police department - usually with regards to racially motivated situations. I found the book very interesting, as it almost felt like I was observing a police investigation through the eyes of people working in the wake of the whole O.J. Simpson fiasco. Everything has political and social consequences, not to mention the fact that the killing certainly was done by a crooked police officer. I would suggest this book to anyone who likes a police thriller with a twist of an ending

About the Author

Michael Connelly, Connelly graduated from the University of Florida in 1980 where he majored in journalism and minored in creative writing. After graduation, he worked at newspapers in Daytona Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, specializing in the crime beat. He was writing about the police and crime during the wave of violence that came over South Florida during the "cocaine wars." In 1986, he interviewed survivors of a plane crash with two other reporters and the magazine story subsequently written on the crash was on the short list for the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. This story led to a job as a crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times. After three years there, Connelly began writing his first novel. His first novel featured the LAPD Detective Hieronymus Bosch and was titled "The Black Echo" (1992). It was based, in part, on a true crime that occurred in Los Angeles, and "The Black Echo" won the Edgar Award for best first novel by the Mystery Writers of America. He followed up with three more Bosch novels titled "The Black Ice,""The Concrete Blonde," and "The Last Coyote." Afterwards, he published "The Poet" (1996), which featured a newspaper reporter as a protagonist, and "Blood Work" (1998), which was inspired by a friend's heart transplant and the "survivors guilt" that was experienced by his friend for living at the expense of somebody's death. "Angels Flight" (1999) brought back the Bosch series and in "Void Moon" (2000), Connelly introduced a new character,
