    Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two. DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer, or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics....

    Joanne says: "A completely satisfying listen"
    "Possibly the best Bosch ever"

    Story

    The only reason I hesitate to call this THE best Bosch ever is that I do not want to diminish all the previous wonderful volumes. Nevertheless, this book is the best Bosch in a long time. Although Connelly's style remains direct and unadorned, the subtlety with which he develops his characters' thoughts and feelings resonates throughout the story, increasing its depth as the plot continues to ravel and finally unravel in a thoroughly satisfying denouement. For those of us who have read all the Bosch novels, The Drop is a moving continuation of a man's life, a man whose purpose and ethic remain steadfast in a changing world. Bosch's relationship to his daughter, so central to 9 Dragons, takes a more symbolic role in the present novel, allowing the relationship to mature in some ways, but also allowing Bosch to regain the kind of independence that characterized his more youthful investigations. That said, The Drop is also a reflection on aging, on the kinds of questions we men of Bosch's age are asking ourselves in the later years of our professional lives, whether we still have "the edge". With this book, Connelly proves he still does have it, and it's sharper than ever, technically and creatively. As always, Cariou masterfully complements Connelly; this great actor still has "the edge" too.
