An LAPD homicide detective must choose between justice and vengeance as he teams up with the FBI in the first novel of the "thrilling" Harry Bosch series (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.… (mer)

Started reading the series after the Amazon Prime series ended. Good consistently between them. A complicated plot with a number of surprise endings. ( )

I've read this, and all of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch books, before. When I started these back in the nineties, I thought of them as largely throw-aways and will readily admit that I only picked this one up because Connelly and I went to the same university. So, this summer I'm reading some, and who knows, maybe all, of them again. I have the time.

When I think of recurring characters, or series novels, as installments of a whole, I usually go to John Rebus, the crusty Scots detective who's development over 20 or so novels provides as much of a biography of Edinburgh as Rebus himself. But Bosch is my first, and in some ways the one I know best. Bosch, American, is more knowable to me, where Rebus will always have a touch of the exotic and wistful for this self-identifying Scots derivative.

But why again? While they may be great fun, to paraphrase my mentor, they ain't great literature. However, in the midsts of a crippling depression, it can be nice to revisit a friend, no matter how fictional he may be. And really, doesn't Harry Bosch have more evidence to his existence than most people we know? Perhaps not in this age of social media. Still, Bosch is predictable, comfortable, and most importantly, doesn't demand so much of my attention that I feel I'm doing a disservice to the narrative if my mind isn't fully present when reading. The familiarity, still somewhat surprising due to years passing by and memory used for other things, is a warm blanket.

As for the book itself, there's more thematically this go around than I noticed before. The appearance of tunnels, the foreshadowing of the present crime by the experiences of Bosch in Vietnam, like I said-- no one's going to mistake this for Umberto Eco, or even William McIlvenney. But Connelly is solid, and there aren't the expected lapses into unbelievable dialog posing as exposition that is typical of many lesser practitioners. That is, until the big bad goes all Bond-villain and inexplicably narrates the missing details of the crime Bosch is pursuing through the novel.

So four stars. Solid, not great, but pretty good. I suspect the next few will get better, before the inevitable decline that occurs, as in so many long-running series, as characters stick around past their prime. ( )

Always enjoy Harry bosch - another great read. ( )

Harry Bosch is a Noire-ish detective in the unlikely setting of Hollywood. He's a bit of the stereotypical hero policeman, a slightly loose cannon with less interest in making friends or following the rules than in uncovering the truth. This particular story hinges on his past as a Vietnam veteran, and includes a mildly silly romantic element, but the whole thing holds together pretty well. ( )

Big, brooding debut police thriller by Los Angeles Times crime-reporter Connelly, whose labyrinthine tale of a cop tracking vicious bank-robbers sparks and smolders but never quite catches fire. Swift and sure, with sharp characterizations, but at heart really a tightly wrapped package of cop-thriller cliches, from the hero's Dirty Harry persona to the venal brass, the mad-dog IAD cops, and the not-so-surprising villains. Still, Connelly knows his turf and perhaps he'll map it more freshly next time out.

Harry Bosch, detective de la policía de Los Ángeles quedó marcado por la dura experiencia de Vietnam. Ahora, un caso le devuelve su pasado. La víctima, Billy Meadows, había servido en su misma unidad. Ambos eran ratas de túnel que combatían en la red de pasajes subterráneos del Viet Cong; ambos experimentaron el terror del eco negro: la reverberación en las tinieblas de su propio pánico. Ahora Meadows está muerto. Pero su rastro parece apuntar a un gran atraco bancario perpetrado a través de túneles de alcantarillado.
