May 1992, and after four LAPD officers were acquitted after the savage beating of Rodney King, Los Angeles is ablaze. As looting and burning take over the city, law and order are swept away in a tidal wave of violence. But under threat of their lives, homicide detectives like Harry Bosch are still stubbornly trying to do their job. With no effective police presence on the streets, murder just got a whole lot easier - and investigating them got a whole lot harder.
Escorted by National Guard soldiers from murder scene to murder scene, Harry and his colleagues are only able to do the bare minimum in terms of collecting evidence. And for Harry that's not enough. When he finds the body of a female journalist executed in an alley, he cannot accept that he will never be able to bring her killer to justice, and her tragedy starts to eat into his soul. But then, 20 years later, Harry finds himself working in the Open Unsolved Unit, and suddenly the past comes back to haunt him once again, in a way he could never have imagined.

"Not his Best :("
I'm very sad to write this review as I'm such a massive Michael Connelly fan. I've read all his books up to now and have to say the last couple of years they've slowly been going downhill. His peak was at the end of the 90s early 2000s but this last book for example, The Black Box, only properly kicked when there was only a few chapters to go whereas in his other books this would've happened much earlier.
HOWEVER I still think Harry Bosch is an absolute legend.
"The Black Box"
Sadly this was not on par with any of the other Harry B books. The story was predictable and lacked the pace of the other stories in this series. Come on Michael you can do better!
It's been great following the development of Harry Bosch from book to book and, as the latest in the series, The Black Box doesn't disappoint. Thoroughly enjoyable, highly recommended!
"the black box"
as good as all the rest of the harry bosch books can,t wait for the next one
"The Black Box"
Harry Bosch and Michael Connelly, its a combination that is a must to download, it never disappoints, if it was a printed volume you could not put it down until you reach the end and in Audio form the same can be said.
