An LAPD homicide detective must choose between justice and vengeance as he teams up with the FBI in this "thrilling" novel filled with mystery and adventure (New York Times Book Review).
For maverick LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch, the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal . . . because the murdered man was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who had fought side by side with him in a hellish underground war. Now Bosch is about to relive the horror of Nam. From a dangerous maze of blind alleys to a daring criminal heist beneath the city, his survival instincts will once again be tested to their limit. Pitted against enemies inside his own department and forced to make the agonizing choice between justice and vengeance, Bosch goes on the hunt for a killer whose true face will shock him.

    I can't stand smokers!! It was annoying to have him constantly "lighting up". They literally stink

    I had seen Michael Connelly's books on the bookshelf for so long but I had never picked it up. It's truely my loss. I watched Bosch as TV series and I was so hooked to this character and the story that I though it would be best to start reading Harry Bosch series from the beginning. That's a great decision as this book is so good you just can't put it down.

    Another excellent Connelly book. He is one of the best mystery writers. It is difficult to put his books down. Very fast reads. I only have 2 left to read and will wait impatiently for his next book.

    Bought on iBook cause I was down to a few $$$$ on my account. Man am I glad I did. Real page turner from the get go. Ending well disguised until close to finishing. Have to check and see if some of Connelly's older books and Harry are on sale. If you like detective books this is for you.

    Move over James Patterson, you've just been replaced as the No. 1 mystery writer.
