From the Publisher
In his first case since he left the LAPD''s Open Unsolved Unit for
the prestigious Homicide Special squad, Harry Bosch is called out
to investigate a murder that may have chilling consequences for
national security. A doctor with access to a dangerous radioactive
substance is found murdered in the trunk of his car. Retracing his
steps, Harry learns that a large quantity of radioactive cesium was
stolen shortly before the doctor''s death. With the cesium in
unknown hands, Harry fears the murder could be part of a terrorist
plot to poison a major American city.
Soon, Bosch is in a race against time, not only against the
culprits, but also against the Department of Homeland Security and
the FBI (in the form of Harry''s one-time lover Rachel Walling),
who are convinced that this case is too important for the likes of
the LAPD. It is Bosch''s job to prove all of them wrong.
