Publisher's Summary

Narcotics officer Cal Moore's orders were to look into the city's latest drug killing. Instead, he ends up in a motel room with his head in several pieces and a suicide note stuffed in his back pocket.

Years ago, Harry Bosch learned the first rule of the good cop: don't look for the facts, but the glue that holds them together. Now, Harry's making some very dangerous connections, starting with one dead cop and leading to a bloody string of murders that winds from Hollywood Boulevard's drug bazaar to the dusty back alleys south of the border and into the center of a complex and lethal game - one in which Harry is the next and likeliest victim.

Impressed? Ace detective Harry Bosch is also on the case in other exciting Michael Connelly crime-fiction novels.

    Story
    "The Black Ice"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The character Harry Bosch has become one of my favorites. The story line takes many twists and keeps one guessing right to the end. The plot of the story leverages modern criminal drug trade with the politics of law enforcement and a detective that does the right thing even when its against the rules.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the character Harry Bosch, irreverent and unafraid; he get it done.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Wonderful transitions between characters. Dick brings each character to life by giving them their own personalities.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I just enjoy a good mystery

    People say I resemble my dog (and vice-versa). He can hear sounds I can't hear, but I'm the one who listens to audiobooks.

    Story
    "Number Two for One Man Army"

    I had just started Harry Bosch 3, The Concrete Blonde, which I had been sitting on for quite a while, when Bosch 1 and 2 came up in Audible's recent 3-for-2 sale. What a fortuitous coincidence. Or was it? As Harry always says, there is no such thing as coincidence. So I bought them, plus a bonus audiobook, tore through both of them, and continued on with 3.

    Trying to avoid spoilers, but the great thing about Connelly's plotting in many if not all of his books is that there is always more to the murder(s) than meets the eye, and more often than not that has to do with issues of family and friendship. In The Black Ice, a series of unrelated murders start to come together as part of a drug smuggling scheme, but then Connelly starts to bring these complex relationships into it, making things more interesting.

    As with the first Bosch, the last two chapters are all talk, all explanation, even after Harry has already figured it all out. This is not as bad as The Black Echo -- this talking villain does not give Bosch time to save himself by talking instead of acting. But he does talk nevertheless. I hope Connelly's other common threads and themes continue into future entries in the series, but I hope his over-reliance on the talking villain disappears.

    "Love the narrator. Love the author."

    The book was slow and I could not maintain focus. I didn't feel the author drew me into the story.

    "Bosch & Connelly do it again. Good read..."

    Just became a Connelly/ Bosch fan. Read the first of this series the Black Echo and quickly signed up for this next in the series, The Black Ice. Maybe a touch slower than Echo, but good enough to convince me to promptly sign up for # 3 (...Concrete).

    Excellent story with plenty of twists and turns to keep you off balance and interested. One of those books you don't want to stop listening to.

    "Bosch always draws you in"

    Narrator is awesome !
    Bosch is true to character with his hypervigilance and left brain and analytical thinking
    But also true to character with his relationships with women the way he idolizes and assumes they are the goddess for him
