    Michael Connelly is a class act and in Harry Bosch he s created one of the best crime stoppers in contemporary fiction fact Connelly has also demonstrated an ability to branch off and develop additional compelling characters, like Mickey Haller The Lincoln Lawyer He s previously brought Bosch and Haller together and established a link but here, for the first time, he pairs them up to work in unison on a case.Th

    Another well done Harry Bosch novel This time, Harry is playing for the opposing side, helping his half brother Micky Haller He struggles for a long time with the whole idea of crossing over to the dark side, as he thinks of the defense As always, this is a convoluted tale with lots of twists and turns Even though you know who the bad guys are, it s the means by which Harry unravels the clues that provides the intrigue I listened to the audio
