The Black Box by Michael Connelly
An unsolved murder case has bothered LAPD Detective Harry Bosch for twenty years. As the anniversary of the bloody riots that rocked Los Angeles in 1992 approaches, Bosch asks specifically for that case: a Danish journalist killed in an apparent execution-style murder. With very little to go forward, Bosch plows through to find the murderer.
With fame and an established audience of loyal fans, bestselling authors often take them for granted, becoming lazy, regurgitating plots and storylines. But Mr. Connelly does not disappoint. He’s as much a great storyteller today as he was twenty years ago. Page after page the reader enjoys the intricate work of Bosch and the workings of a police investigation.
Who killed the journalist and why? What was she doing in the midst of those devastating riots? And who in the LAPD does not want Bosch to uncover the truth?
