Review quote

This gripping Harry Bosch mystery starts with a terrorist-style execution ... this is an increasingly cynical and dyspeptic Harry's first case in his new job * IRISH INDEPENDENT * Connelly has established himself as one of crime's most satisfying reads. * METRO * Some people get very excited about the propect of a new Harry Bosch book ... But its' not suprising. Fifteen years and umpteen books on, Connelly is still pulling in the crowds ... Thrilling rollercoaster? Take it as read. * DAILY SPORT * [Bosch is] still a brililant detective, and the only one to solve Connelly's well-constructed puzzle. -- Susanna Yager * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH * 'When you pick up one of Connelly's novels, be resigned to losing the rest of the day. He is one of those get-you-on-the edge-of-your seat, can't-put-it-down storytellers - and he can write.' * GLASGOW EVENING TIMES * The final chapters contain chases and twists galore - even so, there is time for some of that hard-nosed poetry which makes Connelly a cut above his competitors. -- Mark Sanderson * EVENING STANDARD * '...by then I was hooked, as is so often the way with Connelly, and as the pace quickened it slowly became clear that this was another classic by the best crime writer in America today.' -- Henry Sutton * THE MIRROR *show more
