Excellent page turner LA detective thriller

Another excellent Michael Connolly page turner, featuring irascible, uncompromising, defiant, streetwise, journeyman, LA murder detective Harry Bosch. Connolly’s series of books are steeped in American sensibilities of right and wrong being a black and white situation and Bosch is always single minded in his goal to solve the case and get the bad guys. As usual, the plot is complex and well-crafted and there is plenty of tensions and potential jeopardy between key characters. Bosch’s bold and brave character is deep enough to be credible, as are others who make up the key individuals in the story. And there is a comfortable feeling that you are being taken on a journey by an expert in the American cop thriller genre, which is indeed the case. If you like well plotted, cop thrillers with page-turner popular prose then you should like this book.
