It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

If you could sum up Delusion In Death in three words, what would they be?

Great story line with an extra twist at the end... not my favorite, but very close to the top! I enjoyed how she worked in the resolution of the "Divided In Death" Homeland character.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked the new character Agent Tinsley, who is extremely capable, collected, and ethical - giving me hope that not all of Homeland Security is corrupted. I hope she will appear again in another story.

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

I enjoy her different voices for characters, excellent reading, and pacing.

The one good thing in Bosch's life, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him and Bosch travels to Hong Kong in an all-or-nothing bid to regain what he's lost. In a place known as Nine Dragons, as the city's Hungry Ghosts festival burns around him, Bosch puts aside everything he knows and risks everything he has in a desperate bid to outmatch the triad's ferocity.

The book was good, but not up to the usual standard. The action was good, but somehow lacking the usual intesity of the other books of this character. Still worth reading, just not Connelly's best effort.
