04.18.15 I'll be honest: this was a breath of fresh air after the density of Perfidia. Connelly's books at this point are kind of mostly soap opera for me. That's not to say that they're all about interpersonal relationships and torrid intrigue but since they more or less come out every year and follow a closed set of characters who age more or less in real time... I read the books more to check in on Harry Bosch's life rather than care about the specifics of whatever case he's on. And this book, whether it's me projecting or actually true, felt that way to me. There are two cases in this book, both of them are not terribly interesting and neither of them have particularly satisfying conclusions but I still think this is a good book because the prose is still authoritative and polished and... you know... you get to know Harry's latest partner and get a little check in on what his daughter's up to and things like that. I do feel like this one lacks that page-turning fire that Connelly's best books possess and would never recommend this as an entry point to the author or the character, but for me the fan of the series I didn't have any problems with it. I did really see the end coming even though it comes off as bit random and rushed, but if it ended any other way this book would REALLY feel like filler.
