Lost Light: Harry Bosch Series, Book 9 | [Michael Connelly]

Lost Light: Harry Bosch Series, Book 9

Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. The crime was never resolved, and the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

Publisher's Summary

Only the money was real. Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. Bosch got off a shot that struck one of the robbers as their van sped away, but the money was never recovered. And the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

Now Bosch moves full-bore back into that case, determined to find justice for the young woman. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear in the guilty, he learns afresh how brutally indifferent the world can be. But something draws him on, past humiliation and harassment. It's not just that the dead woman had no discernible link to the robbery. Nor is it his sympathy for the cops who took the case over, one of them killed on duty and the other paralyzed by a bullet in the same attack. With every conversation and every thread of evidence, Bosch senses a larger presence, an organization bigger than the movie studios and more ruthless than even the LAPD. The part of Bosch that will never back down finds as fatal an opponent as he's ever encountered - and there's no guarantee that Bosch will survive the showdown ahead.

Don't miss Detective Harry Bosch on the case in these Michael Connelly crime fiction novels.

What the Critics Say

  • Audie Award Winner, Mystery, Fiction, 2004

"It's never pretty watching Harry [Bosch] edge toward connection with those he loves and then back away...but it just may be the most compelling train wreck in crime fiction." (Booklist, Starred Review)
"This exciting procedural is as good as any in the series." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Au Audie for This?"

    The glowing reviews and Audie award greatly influenced my decision to buy this book. I found the reading forced, stilted, and choppy. Len Cariou cut up. Sentences. Adding phrases like. Extra appendages. This is annoying in any work, but especially a first person account. And the music! It would be okay if it did something to enhance the mood or story line, but this was just stuck in anywhere like a gratuitous sex scene in a movie. Even so, I tried to get past all this and get interested in the story. Mostly it was just dull and not at all engaging. Connelly/Bosch didn?t share enough clues to for the audience to try to figure whodunit. Bosch stumbled on the revealing clue and then we all knew whodunit. I?m glad I stuck it out to the end, though, because there were two genuine surprises. If only the rest of the book were as good as the last hour.
