    EXCERPT The old lady changed her mind about dying but by then it had been too late She dug her fingers into the paint and plaster of the nearby wall until most of her fingernails had broken off Then she had gone for the neck, scrabbling to push the bloodied fingertips up and under the cord She broke four toes kicking at the walls She had tried so hard, shown such a desperate will to live, that it made Harry Bosch wonder what ha

    This is the eighth book in the Harry Bosch series and the one I liked the least so far I still enjoyed it and found it a quick easy read but it lacked a certain something I know I was uncomfortable in all the scenes involving Brasher who I found I could not like at all Eventually I wondered why she had even been included and in fact whether the author felt the same way judging by events There was a lot of description of police pr

    Calamity he was trouble as a puppy was the one who changed the course of Detective Harry Bosch s future and set a course for the following two weeks of dark memories and turbulent trouble When Bosch was called to Wonderland in Los Angeles, he suspected the bone which had been unearthed would be the usual a wild animal of some description But when the almost complete skeleton of a young boy was brought to the surface and learning th

    I definitely enjoyed City of Bones I really enjoyed this look at what it was that caused Harry Bosch to retire from the LAPD I m sad to think about what could have been though when you see athoughtful and happy Harry in this one.Bosch is still teamed up with J Edgar in this one book Edgar still sucks and they get called in when a bone is found up in the hills When it becomes clear they are looking at human remains, Bosch is thrown in


  6. says:

    A great Bosch book that details many sub stories within the one novel Perhaps not stories as much as solutions to the case, in which Connelly has the reader and Bosch sure that the killer is Mr X, only to find out that new evidence points to Ms Y It also touches on many powerful and painful themes, including missing children, abuse, foster care, and death on the job Connelly continues to build a strong emotional foundation for his best

    I have such mixed feelings about this story Harry Bosch and partner Jerry Edgar respond to a call about a bone found by a doctor s dog He s certain it s human and he turns out to be right, prompting the start of what ends up being a very cold case I loved the forensics aspect of the story, along with the procedurals Nobody does it better than Harry and I enjoy his investigative style There are other personal situations that impact the in

    After a few disappointing reads over the last few days I couldn t wait to jump back into the Harry Bosch series Having only recently read Michael Connelly for the first time, he has quickly became one of my favourite authors and I can t think of an author in this genre who writes better crime fiction than this The realism just oozes off the page and I can t get enough of these books Once again Connelly has written a truly gripping and engr

    A South African mystery writer recently said this was the best crime book ever written I have no way of verifying that, but it was very, very good This novel seems to come in the middle of Michael Connelly s series featuring Los Angeles detective Harry Bosch The title derives from the discovery at the outset of a set of boy s bones on a wooded hillside above a residential street, and the case resonates strongly with Bosch because of his own


  10. says:

    A solid mystery featuring my favorite lone wolf, Harry Bosch Unfortunately it dragged for me, but not because of anything Connelly did or didn t do, but because most of this book was well covered in the third season of theseries Because TV manages to change up even the best of storylines, there were a few surprises Most notable the ending I didn t see that coming but no doubt Bosch will find new ways to annoy the LAPD leadership.
