*Starred Review* Harry Bosch has retired from the LAPD before and then come back, but this time it appears he's played out his string. So when Harry is paired with a rookie detective in a cold case like no other—the victim of a nine-year-old shooting has only now died, leaving the detectives with a warm corpse and a cold investigation—he's tasked with a dual charge: find the killer and train the newbie, Lucie Soto, who has an agenda of her own. As a child, Soto, an orphan, was trapped in a burning building and watched many of her friends die before she was rescued. No one was ever arrested for the arson, and Lucie is out to solve her own cold case—against the rules and off the books. Harry, who has never seen a rule he wasn't willing to break, agrees to help his new partner, if she agrees to put their real case first. That becomes considerably easier to do when it appears the two may be connected. Ah, but there's a rub: the trail leads to what Bosch calls "high jingo," political considerations that mean interference from the big bosses. By putting the emphasis on the training of a young detective, Connelly shows us a side of Bosch we tend to de-emphasize, stressing instead his maverick attitude and his battles against inner demons. Harry is also a damn good detective, eschewing databases and cell phones to do his investigating by following the old-school motto of "Get off your ass, and go knock on doors." Sadly, door-knocking doesn't always win in the face of high jingo, or even garden-variety bureaucrats, and if the Bosch series teaches us anything, it's that hard work is often its own—and only—reward. That's the real lesson Bosch must teach Lucie, and he does it in grand style. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Connelly's 26 novels have sold more than 58 million copies worldwide, proving that crime-fiction fans love a maverick. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Orlando Merced is finally dead from the bullet that struck him in the spine and paralyzed him a decade ago as he played with his band in Los Angeles's Mariachi Plaza, and the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit has caught the case. Such investigations are rarely straightforward, but soon detectives Harry Bosch and his new partner, "Lucky" Lucy Soto, discover that the victim had ties to a mayoral hopeful, putting a political spin on their probe. Bosch has never had patience for political machinations, interoffice or otherwise, and he must juggle this complication along with an inexperienced and untested partner. Bosch finds himself in shark-filled waters with a murder case that turns out to be about much more. His love for the job and for the City of Angels, warts and all, and his fierce sense of justice are among the many things that make this series great. VERDICT Connelly's (The Gods of Guilt) exceptional gift for crafting an intricate and fascinating procedural hasn't faded a bit. Our protagonist remains, after 19 books, one of the most intriguing creations in crime fiction, even as he faces his impending retirement. A humdinger of an ending will have readers anxiously awaiting the next book. [See Prepub Alert, 5/12/14.]—Kristin Centorcelli, Denton, TX

An autopsy opens Edgar-winner Connelly's superb 19th Harry Bosch mystery (after 2012's The Black Box). Orlando Merced, a mariachi musician, was transformed into a symbol for urban violence by an opportunistic mayoral candidate when he was wounded a decade earlier, a random victim of a drive-by shooting. Merced's death prompts a reexamination of the case, and Bosch and his young new partner, Lucia Soto, get to work. With his usual deftness, Connelly links the Merced shooting to an act of arson—an apartment fire that killed nine on the same day—and returns to his perennial themes: local politics, the media, the LAPD's internecine warfare, and, of course, Los Angeles itself, from the wealthy enclaves of Mulholland Drive to the barrios of East L.A. Bosch is very much of the old school in this high-tech world, but his hands-on tenacity serves him and the case well—just as Connelly serves his readers well with his encyclopedic knowledge and gifts as a storyteller.
