Narcotics officer Cal Moore's orders were to look into the city's latest drug killing. Instead, he ends up in a motel room with a fatal bullet wound to the head and a suicide note stuffed in his back pocket. Working the case, LAPD detective Harry Bosch is reminded of the primal police rule he learned long ago: Don't look for the facts, but the glue that holds them together. Soon Harry's making some very dangerous connections, starting with a dead cop and leading to a bloody string of murders that wind from Hollywood Boulevard to the back alleys south of the border. Now this battle-scarred veteran will find himself in the center of a complex and deadly game-one in which he may be the next and likeliest victim.

Bosch finally get back to the station and working with his old partner. Only 51 pages in and like it already. Bosch said he walked funny after he left this job. Is it because of his shoes that he is off his balance? No. It is because he is so used to wearing his gun that he feels lopsided wh...
I listened to this as an audiobook. The narrator was fine, although I think that someone else might do a better job. One of the things that mysteries do better than just about any other genre, in my opinion, is really take a setting, in this case LA and Mexicali, and use elements of location to be...
