From the Publisher
Fed up with the hypocrisy and bureaucracy of the LAPD, Harry Bosch has retired.But the life of a retiree doesn''t suit him.He has devoted himself to law enforcement out of a deep drive to see justice done equally for all.On his own, he is still drawn toward the abyss. And when he rediscovers a startling, unsolved murder among the old case files he''s been poring over, he knows he can''t rest until he finds the killer, with or without a badge. Moving ever further inside the remarkable character of Harry Bosch, whom the New York Post calls ''the quintessential mystery book hero,'' Michael Connelly takes another step closer to the classic novels of Raymond Chandler in this breakneck, relentless, and potent new novel.
