Harry Bosch is still volunteering at the San Fernando Police Department (SFPD), working cold cases and helping with any new homicides. His old LAPD partner, Lucia Soto, shows up unannounced with her current partner and an assistant district attorney in tow, advising him that one of his old cases is back in play. New DNA evidence may exonerate a man (Preston Borders) Bosch helped put on death row almost 30 years ago and he’s being accused of evidence tampering by the man’s lawyer. In the middle of the conference, the SFPD detectives are called to the scene of double homicide at a pharmacy.
I loved everything about this story with two intriguing cases that Harry is trying to navigate simultaneously. Jerry Edgar makes an appearance, as well as Mickey Haller and it just doesn’t get any better with this team working with Harry again. There’s courtroom drama as well, which is always a treat watching Mickey in action. And, Harry goes undercover, providing some really tense and exciting moments. The writing is excellent and extremely well paced, making for an outstanding story. There are other things in play that make this an even richer reading experience.
I’m now current with this series, a place I wasn’t looking forward to landing anytime soon. I’m also watching the television series and loving that, too (binged through it all). Having Titus Welliver narrate this story worked so well as he’s completely taken over as my image of Harry. To say I’ll miss my monthly Bosch fix is a serious understatement.
