    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.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'm a huge Connelly fan, I have read or listened to everything. I'm half way through the book and the story is solid, but not the best (The Drop, 9 Dragons, The Reversal, The Poet - being the best). I have never written a review before completing the story but I'm fed up with this narrator, he is so bad. I was so looking forward to 11/26 - the release of this book, and was so disappointed 15 minutes in after hearing this voice droning on.

    I'm at a loss as to why a series of this caliber and success would choose this narrator. I hope there was a very good reason for parting ways with Len Cariou, he was the best Bosch narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A great way of tying together 20 years of Bosch stories.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael McConnohie’s performances?

    No, this was a really bad performance.


    Could you see The Black Box being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Bosch would be a great character for a TV series.


    Any additional comments?

    Only die hard Connelly/Bosch fans should buy this. If this were my first Connelly listen I would never buy anything else (due to the narrator).
