[Lost Light] [by: Michael Connelly] - 1407235117

Michael Connolly has written seven books featuring the hard-boiled Vietnam vet-turned-LAPD ... more

detective Harry Bosch and Lost Light sees him ride
again. The astringent and vivid realisation of the
city of Los Angeles (quite as sharply done as in
the great novels of Raymond Chandler) and the
layers of complexity created for Bosch made him
one of the most interesting and well-realised
characters in modern crime fiction. Even the
overused device of alcohol abuse in the detective
was treated with freshness and imagination. Such
non-Bosch titles as Chasing the Dime have their
virtues, but most admirers will frankly be
relieved that Harry is back in action. When Harry
Bosch left the LAPD, he took with him a murder
file about a film production assistant killed four
years before during a large-scale robbery on a
movie set. The LAPD has decided that the stolen
money was utilised to create a terrorist training
camp, and there are moves to release the killer to
enable the FBI to track down the terrorists.
Needless to say, this does not go down well with
the volatile Harry, and he soon finds himself up
against his erstwhile colleagues at the LAPD and
the implacable forces of the FBI. In the earlier
Bosch novels, it's clear that the flintily wrought
characterisation and gritty scene-setting
concealed some less-than-original plots, but here
we've got a triumphant marriage of innovative,
hard-edge narrative and a parade of characters
quite as vivid as any in the genre. The set pieces
have all the usual panache, and the larger and
more detailed canvas is carried off with
considerable dash. --Barry Forshaw

Product Information for "Lost Light - Michael Connelly" »

Manufacturer's product description

Reviewers and readers agree that Michael Connelly is writing at the top of his game, giving us crime fiction of the dark side of Los Angeles and reinventing the form with every book he writes. At the end of CITY OF BONES Bosch quit the LAPD, but he's back in a new role, one that will give him more freedom to pursue the cases that compel him. When he left the LAPD Bosch took a file with him - the case of a film production assistant murdered four years earlier during a $2 million robbery on a movie set. The LAPD - now operating under post 9/11 rules - think the stolen money was used to finance a terrorist training camp. Thoughts of the original murder victim are lost in the federal zeal, and when it seems the killer will be set free to aid the feds' terrorist hunt, Bosch quickly finds himself in conflict with both his old colleagues and the FBI.
