When he left the LAPD Bosch took a file with him: the case of a production assistant murdered four years earlier during a film set robbery. The LAPD thinks the stolen money was used to finance a terrorist training camp. Thoughts of the original murder victim were lost in the federal zeal, and when Bosch decides to re-investigate, he quickly falls fouls of both his old colleagues and the FBI.

When the investigation enables him to meet up with an old friend, shadows from his past come back to haunt him...

Review:

Michael Connolly has written seven books featuring the hard-boiled Vietnam vet-turned-LAPD detective Harry Bosch and Lost Light sees him ride again. The astringent and vivid realisation of the city of Los Angeles (quite as sharply done as in the great novels of Raymond Chandler) and the layers of complexity created for Bosch made him one of the most interesting and well-realised characters in modern crime fiction. Even the overused device of alcohol abuse in the detective was treated with freshness and imagination. Such non-Bosch titles as Chasing the Dime have their virtues, but most admirers will frankly be relieved that Harry is back in action.

When Harry Bosch left the LAPD, he took with him a murder file about a film production assistant killed four years before during a large-scale robbery on a movie set. The LAPD has decided that the stolen money was utilised to create a terrorist training camp, and there are moves to release the killer to enable the FBI to track down the terrorists. Needless to say, this does not go down well with the volatile Harry, and he soon finds himself up against his erstwhile colleagues at the LAPD and the implacable forces of the FBI.

In the earlier Bosch novels, it's clear that the flintily wrought characterisation and gritty scene-setting concealed some less-than-original plots, but here we've got a triumphant marriage of innovative, hard-edge narrative and a parade of characters quite as vivid as any in the genre. The set pieces have all the usual panache, and the larger and more detailed canvas is carried off with considerable dash. --Barry Forshaw

Review:

Taut, pacy and with an agreeably dark atmosphere, this is a welcome return for the grizzled but all-to-human Harry Bosch. -- GOOD BOOK GUIDE

[An] enthralling and labyrinthine crime novel. -- The Sunday Times

Book Description Little, Brown, 2003. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: 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.- Each Connelly book outsells its predecessors--he's truly a writer who's gaining momentum. City of Bones (published 4/01) hit the New York Times list at #3 and has more than 285,000 copies in print to date.- Chasing the Dime, this Fall's departure from Connelly's incredibly successful Harry Bosch series, had a first printing of 325,000 (10/02).- Connelly is his generation's answer to Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, and reviewers have taken note.- Blood Work was the basis of a feature film starring Clint Eastwood, released in August 2002. The novel currently has over 1.3 million copies in print.- For the first time ever, Connelly writes a Bosch novel in the first person, taking readers even deeper inside his most complex hero.
