The Black Box (Harry Bosch #18) by Michael Connelly


Book Description

Publication Date:November 26, 2012
In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved.
Now Bosch’s ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the “black box,” the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.
Riveting and relentlessly paced, THE BLACK BOX leads Harry Bosch, “one of the greats of crime fiction” (New York Daily News), into one of his most fraught and perilous cases.
Review –
The local library had the audio version of this book so I checked it out and I loved it.  It has  everything a Michael Connelly Harry Bosch Mystery should have : a complex story line spanning decades, a murder, a cold case,tension within the division and Harry, of course, who is like a dog with a bone that he’s not willing to give up.  The only negative thing I have doesn’t relate to the storyline at all, it has to do with the narrator.  He, and I won’t name names, but he was BAD.  All of the characters sounded the same. I will not listen to another book by this reader, that’s for sure.   I love Harry Bosch and I’ll anxiously be waiting for the next one.
