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.
Riveting and relentlessly paced, The Black Box leads Harry Bosch, "one of the greats of crime fiction" (New York Daily News), into one of his most fraught and perilous cases.

I am an avid eclectic reader.
I am a fan of Harry Bosch, he seems such a down to earth hero. Michael Connelly has done a good job keeping the series from becoming stale. Harry is in the cold case department now, and was assigned a case of a murdered Danish journalist find in an alley during the L.A. riots. The case demonstrates the tedious work of a police detective, as Bosch follows his leads then toward the end of the book it is all action and suspense. On the home front Harry and his daughter continue to work on their relationship and Harry as always is having trouble with the boss at work. The story ties into the first Gulf War and has international aspects gives a bit of different aspect to a Bosch case. Michael McConnohie did a good job narrating the book. If you are a Bosch fan you will not be disappointed.
Always enjoy Harry
Harry, I always enjoy the way he solves a mystery. Like peeling an onion - one layer at a time to solve the murder.
Harry must be coming to the end of his career.
