There's not much to say about the story line: loner cop, corrupt superiors, and drug dealers. Pretty standard fare.
Now, couple that with Michael Connelly's writing abilities, some twists and turns, throw in a most excellent performance and production (especially considering this was recorded almost 20 years ago), and you have a very entertaining listen ahead of you.
While this book does stand alone, you may want to start with "The Black Echo" just to keep things in order. Both books have been solid value for my dollars.

Harry has made few mistakes in his work, and makes even fewer friends. The Black Ice is that slick surface that will kill him if he's not careful, but then again Bosch never seems to be too careful.
Great story, superb narration, and Michael Connelly again weaves us through the story of a gritty detective that does not stop at anything until he finds the answers he needs to solve several related homicides. Throw in a couple of beautiful intriguing women, corrupt cops, the DEA, and a drug cartel, you have the making of a story that you cannot stop listening to.
We learn more about Harry Bosch and his past as this exciting story unfolds. I've really enjoyed the first two Harry Bosch books.
I love books, writing, writers....these are my favorite things. I never have to stop learning! Have a lot to learn still.
Loved it. Performance good. Going to get next one even though there's a part of the next one I'm tired of hearing about. All of the stories are just too good to skip. Good reading and listening. Blessed Be.
Enjoyed Black Echo immensely, was very excited to find the Black Ice intro at the end...since I hated to stop listening! I now have the entire list of Harry Bosch stories and will be looking forward to my commute time again! Great stories with good character development, not too easy to figure out where the plot is going!
