Fed up with the hypocrisy and bureaucracy of the LAPD, Harry Bosch has retired, but the life of a retiree doesnt suit him. He has devoted his life to law enforcement because of a deep drive to see equal justice for all. On his own, he is still drawn toward the law. And when he rediscovers a startling, unsolved murder among the old case files hes been poring over, he knows he cant rest until he finds the killerwith 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 powerful new novel.
