After three years as a PI, Harry Bosch returns to the LAPD. The superb page-turning eleventh Bosch novel from the award-winning No. 1 bestselling author.

Harry is back, assigned to the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit with his former cop ally and partner, Kizmin Rider. These detectives are the Closers. They are thrown into a politically sensitive and dangerous case when a white supremacist is connected to the 1988 murder of a mixed race girl.

The police department has changed, but one thing hasn't - Harry's nemesis, Irving. The former Deputy Chief has been pushed from power and given a virtually meaningless new role. Full of vengeance, Irving calls Harry a 'retread'. He watches from the sidelines like an injured bear, hoping Harry will make a mistake . . .

Review:

The Closers puts Harry Bosch back in the Los Angelese Police Department, where he was meant to be, and sets him to solving old cases, which is what he always did best, alongside Kiz Rider, who was always the best of the partners fate, and Connolly, gave him. They are working on the death of a bi-racial teenager back in the 1980s, abducted from her bedroom and shot dead. The racial tensions of the time are clearly a factor - the DNA of a known racist is trapped in blood on the gun - but in a Michael Connolly novel, things are never as simple as they seem. And Bosch finds, not to his especial surprise, that he has been asked back into the LAPD as someone's weapon in the dance of departmental politics. The death of Backy Verloren was a tragedy - the investigation of her murder was a series of mistakes that left her father an alcoholic mess and her mother an obsessive trapped in the past, and someone profited by their misery. Connolly is always at his best when Harry is caught up in the problems of other people, rather than his own, and this excellent, twisty police procedural is a snappy return to form. --Roz Kaveney

Review:

A scrupulously plotted procedural ... and all the excitements of a terrific thriller well paced by a cool and fast running narrative (Philip Oakes)

There's a mountain of American detective fiction. At the summit are Connelly's Harry Bosch books (SUNDAY SPORT)

A cracking return to form by Connelly, and we can only hope Harry Bosch doesn't apply for retirement again (IRISH INDEPENDENT)

The Closers is more than just a terrific mystery that slowly builds into a breathless race against time, twisting and turning to the very last page. It is a fascinating portrait of a city ... It also highlights, with great sensitivity. 'the toll of violence over time'. However, as usual, hardbitten Harry [Bosch] is the main attraction. He's exactly the kind of cop you'd want to investigate your own murder (Mark Sanderson)

Michael Connelly is always reliable and The Closers is as dark and thrilling as ever (Carla McKay)

A return to form (Maxim Jakubowski)
