The Drop

The Drop by Michael Connelly.

Hardcover: 388 pages
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company;(November 28, 2011)
ISBN-10: 9780316069410


 

Amazon Review..

Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two.

DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? The latter possibility could compromise all of the lab's DNA cases currently in court.

Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics. Councilman Irvin Irving's son jumped or was pushed from a window at the Chateau Marmont. Irving, Bosch's longtime nemesis, has demanded that Harry handle the investigation.

Relentlessly pursuing both cases, Bosch makes two chilling discoveries: a killer operating unknown in the city for as many as three decades, and a political conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department.

 

Once, a long time ago, I read another book by Connelly using Harry Bosch as the main character... I liked that one.. and I liked this one!  This one takes place near Hollywood CA and when they mentions towns and streets I remember them all.  So it was a combination book and some memory involved.

I enjoyed the fact that Bosch and his partner were actually taking care of a cold case crime and a recent  death, which might be suicide .  I also liked that when you think you know what's next.. it isn't! lol.

This was an easy read and short chapters, which is always a way to get me to read more!

The one thing I missed though.. is all the ambience of the Victorian 1800's.. and England! lol  I need to find more Gothic Mysteries!!

I haven't read anything by Michael Connelly (I read John Connelly) but Peter's read a lot of his books and like them a lot. Glad you liked it even if has no Victorian ambience. LOL
