Michael Connelly never fails in his Harry Bosch novels. In each one, another little piece of Harry's complex history and personality is revealed. Never one to let proper protocol get in the way of solving a case and bring justice to the victim and their families, Harry latches on to a 20 year old cold case on which he was one of the original investigators. The case arose during the King riots in LA when solving any murder was almost impossible because of their frequency and the chaos that ensued. Not to deterred, Harry persues the case relentlessly as always. Another fantastic read from a master.

aHHH! I am happy to report that Bosch wasn't in front of IAD----well, maybe a little, but it wasn't as boring as his other problems with them. It begins during the early 1990s riots in LA, murders, looting, arson, anarchy. He and his partner go to the scenes, but there are so many calls they can't spend the time to get much information for a case. This particular murder becomes personal and he is determined to find out why a photojournalist from Denmark ends up killed execution style in an alley in LA.
Years later he is working Open-Unsolved cases and comes across this particular murder book. It is intriguing and he is determined to follow it through to being solved and give the victim's family closure. It is a strange and convoluted case, but he manages to pluck strings and get to the core which takes him sleuthing from the Iraq war to modern times.
The only thing I find disconcerting is that he is involved with different women at different times, gets married to one, but then she's not in the next book. I guess the author forgets his continuity occasionally.

As usual I enjoyed the Harry Bosch character and the plot twists and turns. Michael Connelly did quite an intricate job of moving the story line from the riots in LA in '92 to the distant points in Denmark and the Central Valley more than ten years later. Having grown up in Modesto, CA and having traveled extensively throughout the state, I appreciated the specific landmarks and roads sited in the book. I could feel the story literally moving through the Central Valley and appreciated the flow that brought to it. Felt like I was back "home". I honestly can't say whether it was the local references that I appreciated more, or the cast of characters, all of which feel like they were really local boys to me. But this is one of Michael Connelly's books that I enjoyed reading the most.

Unlike most Connelly offerings, The Black Box begins a little slow. What's worse is that it seems to maintain that pacing for more time than it ought.

Harry is still Harry, and those who've come to love him will find the old detective as eager as ever to solve cases regardless of what, or who, may be standing in his way. What I found mostly lacking was the momentum that Harry craves, and likewise keeps the reader turning pages.

Alternatively, the latter third of this book seems to take on an entirely different pace - driven entirely by Harry's momentum, trademark hunches, and what feels like a rush to wrap up loose ends and conclude the narrative. In doing so, we forced to take an all too predictable turn that comes across less than genuine. It comes to be less about Harry, the character, and more about the action movie sequence that picks up where most of the rest of the book stayed slow. The tensions that had merely begun to simmer seem to explode all too quickly and you're left with a little of 'that's it?' when you reach the conclusion.

All in all, worth the read and still entertaining for Bosch and Connelly fans alike, but don't expect the best of the series in this edition.

Leave it to Michael Connelly to come up with another riveting novel is his Harry Bosch series with his latest book, The Black Box. The Black Box is the 19th book in this series, and Connelly's 24th work of published fiction overall. I'm always amazed at the high quality of Connelly's work--unlike some other best-selling authors who write worthless drivel in order to publish as many books a year as possible.

The Black Box opens May 1, 1992 during the Los Angeles riots after the Rodney King verdict. LAPD Detective Harry Bosch is on the streets trying to process murder crime scenes. He and his partner are sent to one particularly disturbing murder. A young, blonde women is dead in an alley with a gunshot wound through her head. It turns out that she is a Danish reporter, Anneke Jespersen. Bosch tries to do what he can before he's directed to another victim and the murder of Jespersen is eventually transferred to someone else and remains unsolved. Fast forward to 2012 and it's now the 20 year anniversary of the LA riots. Bosch is now part of the Open-Unsolved Unit, where new technology gives investigators the tools to process DNA, ballistics, and other evidence that wasn't originally available when the crime was committed. The murder of Jespersen always haunted Bosch, and he now has a chance for a fresh start when the bullet that killed the reporter is traced to another murder with that killer in jail. At first, Bosch thinks that Jespersen's murder is related to LA gangs, but as he does the "gun walk," he discovers that Jespersen wasn't in LA because of the riots, but as part of an investigation that goes back to Desert Storm. The more evidence that Bosch gathers, the more disturbing this murder becomes. Unfortunately, his lieutenant is a political animal and he doens't want Bosch to solve this crime in 2012 because Jespersen is white, and all the other unsolved murder victims are black. But Bosch is never one to back away from a case--especially as it is gaining momentum. Continuing his investigation can cost Bosch not just his career, but also his life.

Michael Connelly paid his dues as a crime reporter, and it shows in his novels, his vocabulary, his scenes, his plots and his characters. Bosch is an old-fashioned, hard-nosed detective who still does things the traditional way. "Bosch charted the killings on a blank piece of paper rather than on a comuputer as most of his colleagues would have done. Bosch was set in his ways and he wanted a document. He wanted to be able to hold it, study it, fold it up, and carry it in his pocket. He wanted to live with it. He left plenty of space around each entry so that he could add notes as he went. This was how he had always worked." Bosch has also been around long enough to have cultivated sources outside the police force, and it is one of these sources who provides Bosch with the "black box" that will help break this case. The black box is named after the black box in an airplane which will provide critical data after a crash. Find the black box, and you'll solve the mystery of the crash. In crime investigations, the black box is the evidence or clue that will provide the missing piece "that brings it all together and makes sense of things. You find it and you're gold."

Michael Connelly is one of the few mystery writers who I will purchase a book as soon as they're published, and he never fails to deliver. The Black Box is another outstanding effort. Too bad somebody doesn't turn Harry Bosch into a television series.
