Review quote

Give a dog a bone and a whole can of worms opens up. This is the start of the 7th great Detective Harry Bosch novel, set in LA but far from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. When a dog returns to its master with a humerus in its mouth it opens up a horrific case of child abuse from twenty years previously. For the next two weeks Bosch and his partner try to bring closure and after identifying the skeleton the answer seems simple. Too simple... Digging back into the neighbourhood's past unearths secrets that could and do destroy lives and careers, bringing back memories for Bosch that he would rather forget. Award-winning crime writer Michael Connelly carries the plot back and forth, intertwining it with Bosch's bolshiness in the face of authority. Love interest arises only to confound both the case and Bosch with the complexity of its relationship. A page-turning, fast-moving pacy crime story - forget about doing anything else till the last page is turned and Bosch reaches a crossroads in his life. - Lucy Watsonshow more
