Lost Light

by Michael Connelly

Grand Central Publishing | October 2, 2006 | Trade Paperback

Lost Light is rated 4 out of 5 by 3.
The vision has haunted him for four years--a young woman lying crumpled in death, her hand outstretched in silent supplication. Harry Bosch was taken off the Angella Benton murder case when the production assistant's death was linked with the violent theft of two million dollars from a movie set. Both files were never closed. Now retired from the L.A.P.D., Bosch is determined to find justice for Angella. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear into the guilty, he's on his own. And even in the face of an opponent more powerful and ruthless than any he's ever encountered, Bosch is not backing down.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best Bosch book, but still good Former Detective Harry Bosch has finally retired but can't let one case go. The case was from four years prior and involved a murdered actress and a $2 million heist, taken place within a week. Bosch is forced to hand the investigation over to another team and within a year of the case, the two lead investigators are caught in a shoot-out. One dies and the other becomes paralyzed. Bosch visits the paralyzed cop to try and get more details about the case and then is warned off by his old partner because there are bigger forces at work. The FBI soon warns Bosch off and he is taken and held in a cell for half a day as a "warning". That doesn't convince Bosch to give up because he can't let this case go. This wasn't my favourite book in the Bosch series but it was still good. I found the FBI part of the case a bit over the top and got tired of everyone tailing Bosch around. When it was finally revealed who the culprit was, I didn't find it too satisfying because Bosch had spent so long chasing other leads that felt pretty unrelated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from another great Bosch mystery When Harry Bosch retired from the LAPD he took a file of cold cases with him. Cases he was determined to find justice for. Bosch was on a movie set asking some questions about a murder he was investigating when the delivery for a large cash outlay for a movie production went all wrong. Thieves hit the set, the money disappeared and a man was shot. Also involved or thought to be involved was the murder of the accountant, a young woman. Bosch, now wants to solve his former case but no longer has the authority of the police department behind him. Although no link from the murder to the robbery exists Bosch's intuition says that it does. One of the policeman originally investigating the case is dead and the other is in a wheelchair. Bosch's dogginess and stubbornness is his best asset as he keeps at it in spite of overwhelming odds to find the perpetrator. Bosch seems to come into his own as he is now his own boss. Several of characters from past stories show up, some of them not too happy with Bosch and the way he left the LAPD. Eleanor, Bosch's ex-wife also helps him and it is nice to see this relationship grow ever so slightly. I love Connelly's Bosch series and look forward to the next in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Connelly continues great series Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series is inventive, exciting, and impressively engaging. Bosch, retired from the LAPD, picks up a cold case from his past. He follows a trail of death and betrayal that reaches the halls of the FBI. The conclusion is unexpected and sad, but Bosch gets one final surprise on the last page of this great read. If you are of fan of this series, you'll love this book.
