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
    "Make few friends and take no prisoners - Bosch"

    Harry has made few mistakes in his work, and makes even fewer friends. The Black Ice is that slick surface that will kill him if he's not careful, but then again Bosch never seems to be too careful.
    Great story, superb narration, and Michael Connelly again weaves us through the story of a gritty detective that does not stop at anything until he finds the answers he needs to solve several related homicides. Throw in a couple of beautiful intriguing women, corrupt cops, the DEA, and a drug cartel, you have the making of a story that you cannot stop listening to.

    We learn more about Harry Bosch and his past as this exciting story unfolds. I've really enjoyed the first two Harry Bosch books.

    "Hooked on Harry Bosch"

    Enjoyed Black Echo immensely, was very excited to find the Black Ice intro at the end...since I hated to stop listening! I now have the entire list of Harry Bosch stories and will be looking forward to my commute time again! Great stories with good character development, not too easy to figure out where the plot is going!

    Story
    "A Good Harry Bosch Entry"

    Harry is still working Hollywood Division in this installment when a murder happens. This one takes Harry south of the border to figure out what happened while fighting the department along the way. Good story and a twist you won't see coming. Well done. Narration is typical Dick Hill..which means excellent character depiction. I enjoyed it.

    "Another great book from Micheal Connolly"

    This book, much like Black Echo, is extremely well written and the narration is top rate... I will definately be buying the rest of the books in this series.

    "Black Ice - unseen brilliance"

    Keen fan of Hammett and Chandler and I have read many Ian Rankins, but much preferred this.
    Thought it was time to try another crime author and the Harry Bosch story did not disappoint. Well read firstly, good selection of "voices" which always helps. Plot was complicated and kept on moving at a pace. To me the characters were well thought out and LA had a modern but grimy feel as portrayed by Chandler and Philip Marlowe etc.

    As soon as I have written this, I will download another Michael Connelly.

    "A typically good Michael Connelly"

    The problem is you get hooked on an author and just keep going back for more. It never ceases to amaze me that his plots aren't facsimiles of each other... they are all completely different. I am amazed he can remember which major character is which as he has a number of regular "heros", Michael Connelly as good as ever, thoroughly recommend this one.

    "Entertaining, compelling and well narrated"

    Another in the Harry Bosch series with the usual successful formula of a maverick ex-Nam cop and the pathos of his personal life. It's not necessary to listen to them all in order, although it helps (Black Echo is the first). The LA setting is as compelling now as it was in Chandler's day and the plot has enough twists and turns to satisfy the cynical listener without too much suspension of disbelief. The narration was particular good on this recording. Enjoy them all!

    Story
    "What a Guy, and that's just the Narrator!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Black Ice: Harry Bosch Series, Book 2 to be better than the print version?

    I don't know I haven't seen the print version. However, I would be inclined to say absolutely. Dick Hill doesn't read, he acts, he dramatises. He does the whole bit so well, you can follow the action with your eyes. He, in the immortal words of Eddy Cochrane, is just something' else.


    What other book might you compare The Black Ice: Harry Bosch Series, Book 2 to, and why?

    Difficult. Perhaps Val Macdermid, because she is also very visual in her writing.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Again difficult. The whole book is like a big chocolate ice cream, you dread the ending of it. Secret; I haven't finished it yet, I am just loving the thing so much I decided to do this.


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

    It just made me smile. Harry is such a guy. He wants to be good, he wants to be right but, he has his problems.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Michael Connelly keeps writing Harry for ever, or at least until I'm in the ground. Oh, and Dick Hill has to keep reading them. Just for me.

    This is a good sequel to The Black Echo and really well narrated. Not quite as good as Echo and no reference is made to the events in that story. I'll keep going with this series, it's really good.
