Booklist Reviews 2016 October #2

*Starred Review* Harry Bosch has jumped from being an LAPD cop to an ex–LAPD cop multiple times throughout the long run of this acclaimed series, but now it appears he's hung up his shield for good, given his latest acrimonious exit and the suit he's brought against the department. Harry's still working, though, both as a volunteer at a suburban cop shop and as a PI, but he's very picky about his cases, which is why when a billionaire of dubious reputation comes calling, Harry is leery. But the mogul, nearing death, has a compelling story to tell: a dalliance with a Latina student decades ago may have produced a child, who may or not still be alive but who may have produced a grandchild. Harry's job is to determine if there is an heir and then to report only to the mogul, not to any of his greedy underlings. The first part goes relatively easily—yes, there is an heir—but the reporting part, not so much, as the mogul is murdered before Harry has a chance to talk to him. Juggling his investigation with the responsibilities of his volunteer gig, now focused on trying to catch a serial rapist, Harry finds himself caught between the sometimes contradictory demands of finding bad guys and helping victims. Unlike so many authors of long-running series, Connelly continues to discover new depths to his character and new stories to tell that reveal those depths in always compelling ways. Hats off one more time to a landmark crime series.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Harry Bosch is almost as big a success on TV as he is in print, and the resulting shock wave of promotional opportunities continues to reverberate.

So big that Hachette allowed him a one-hour booth takeover at BookExpo America, Connelly returns with another tale featuring redoubtable detective Harry Bosch. No plot details yet, but note that 2015's The Crossing had the most preorders of any Connelly title ever. With a 550,000-copy first printing.

Bestseller Connolly's canny detective, Harry Bosch, remains a compelling lead, but even longtime fans may feel that his creator gives him a few too many fortuitous breaks in his 21st outing (after 2015's The Crossing). Bosch's long career with the LAPD is a thing of the past, and he now divides his time between PI work and pro bono service as a reserve police officer for the city of San Fernando. He gets involved in an apparently impossible case for an extremely wealthy client, Whitney Vance, who pays Bosch $10,000 just to agree to a meeting. The 85-year-old Vance asks Bosch to find out, in complete secrecy, what became of the woman Vance impregnated 65 years earlier and who disappeared from his life almost immediately afterward. The billionaire, who believes he is nearing his end, hopes the investigator can ascertain whether he has a living heir. Though the trail is beyond cold, Bosch lucks into a solid lead. The multiple contrivances significantly diminish the plot. Agent: Philip Spitzer, Philip G. Spitzer Literary. (Nov.) Copyright 2016 Publisher Weekly.
