Fans and newcomers alike will love seeing Bosch back in uniform. Thriller

From the book jacket: Detective Harry Bosch is back with the LAPD. with the sole mission of closing unsolved cases. The murder of a 16 year old girl in 1988 is first on his list. A DNA match makes the case very much alive again, and it turns out to be anything but cold. The ripples from this death have destroyed at least two other lives, and everywhere he probes, Bosch finds hot grief, hot rage, and a bottomless well of betrayal and malice.

Comment: As Library Journal says, 'fans and newcomers alike will love seeing Bosch back in uniform, stirring up trouble.'

Booklist and Publishers Weekly both give starred reviews with the latter saying, 'Connelly comes as close as anyone to being today's Dostoyevsky of crime literature, and this is one of his finest novels to date, a likely candidate not only for book award nominations but for major bestsellerdom.'
