Rated 4 out of 5 by from intriguing Connelly has created another great story line with "Bosch" taking the lead once again. An intriguing tale which ends with Bosch being transferred back to RHD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book in the series Detective Harry Bosch is called out to a wooded area when a local's dog finds a bone that looks like a children's bone. Bosch finds the shallow grave and it is determined that the bones are from a male child and have been in the ground for at least twenty years. Bosch and his partner Edgar next try to find the id of the kid. They also interview people from the neighbourhood and their suspicion falls on a man that was convicted of child abuse many years ago. Despite having a partner to work with, Bosch tries to move the investigation forward by himself. As always, Bosch makes waves with his equals and superiors. Has he pushed them too far this time? Could they force him into retirement? As always, the books in the Bosch series do not disappoint. The mystery flows along quite smoothly while you get a great idea of who Bosch is and another peek into his personal life. This time he falls for a rookie cop, which is against regulations. I liked the small details that showed Bosch's character, including how he would place his hand on the box that held the child's bone when he was in the car so that it wouldn't slide around. Another great Bosch mystery!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Harry Bosch #8 This is #8 in the Harry Bosch series and they just keep on getting better and better. Harry is investigating a bone that a dog has found in the Hollywood Hills. It ends up being human from a cold case 20 years previously. The case becomes intense for Harry as his childhood keeps on being dredged up. Harry in his typical persistent dogged manner starts digging through police records, hospital records and missing people reports. He just won't let it go. Bosch finds a family is disarray because of their missing child. Following a trail of meager proportions he continues, sometimes alone by choice, until all hell breaks loose and the police have a live case to solve. Harry also gets involved with a rookie cop which although short has disastrous results. Harry's character is the cop we all love to see. One who follows a case and solves it on crumbs of clues. Can't wait to read the next in the series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Connelly's best While Connelly wanted to make us feel angry about the young victim's death, it just didn't consistently come across in the writing. I have read better Harry Bosch mysteries. Still entertaining enough for a summer read.
