    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
    What did you like best about The Black Box? What did you like least?

    The promise of another Michael Connelly book.
    The fear that the great books of the past will not have another successor to remind us of this author's great skills.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Weaving in the international aspect and historical events but then the author seemed to have phoned the story in, it was not developed and the outcome seemed obvious. Even Harry seemed one dimensional.
    But I am not sure the narrator did not cause this reaction.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration reminded me of narrators of the old film strips shown in schools and guaranteed to put children to sleep. It was bad. The gentleman has a voice but no calling to deliver a mystery and especially the weathered tough but soft Harry Bosch.


    Was The Black Box worth the listening time?

    Only if you love Harry Bosch and Michael Connelly but it will worry you that we won't have a new Connelly in the future with the greatness of past books. I hope it was mostly the narrator.
