The Black Ice
‘Harry Bosch’ series Book #2
The official report said suicide. But in a city where murder is sport, Bosch isn’t ready to blame the victim.
Narcotics officer Cal Moore’s orders were to look into the city’s lates drug killing. Instead, he ends up in a motel room with his head in several pieces and a suicide note stuffed in his back pocket.
Years ago, Harry leanred the first rule of the good cop: don’t look for the facts, but the glue that holds them together. Now, Harry’s making some very dangerous connections, starting with one dead cop and leading to a bloody string of murders that wind from Hollywood Boulevard’s drug bazaar to the dusty back alleys south of the border and into the center of a complex and lethal game – one in which Harry is the next and likeliest victim.
After his richly acclaimed debut, Michael Connelly brings Bosch back in an achievement even more stunning and suspenseful than its predecessor – a time-bomb of a novel supercharged with tension and non-stop action that doesn’t let up until the final, explosive ending.
Review: I liked this book as much as the first of the series. The action, the suspense, the way Bosch thinks, how he puts it all together… I couldn’t have asked for more. So many twists and turns near the ending had you wondering. At first, I couldn’t figure it out, but as it was explained, I caught on. Goes to show why I’m not a detective… I never would have thought of it. I am definitely going to continue with the series. If the rest of the novels are as good as the first two, I know I’m in good hands.
