Booklist Reviews 2009 September #2

*Starred Review* Every Harry Bosch novel tells two stories: one involving antiestablishment LAPD detective Bosch's bullheaded determination to solve the case in front of him; the other tracking the hero's inner struggles. This time the two stories come together in what may be the most wrenching Bosch novel yet. It starts with the murder of a Chinese grocery owner in South Central L.A., a man Bosch once met and remembers fondly. The trail leads to the Chinese triads, centuries-old, Mafia-like crime organizations with roots deep in China's history. Those roots seem to lead to Hong Kong, current home of Bosch's former wife, Eleanor, and 13-year-old daughter, Maddie. When Bosch receives an e-mail video suggesting Maddie has been kidnapped, the case explodes. Over a lost weekend like no other, Bosch flies to Hong Kong and launches a one-man vigilante campaign aimed at rescuing his daughter and solving the murder case. By the end of his "39-hour day," Bosch needs a shower, a new suit, and a therapist—and a lawyer. The jagged intersection between a cop's personal and professional lives is a recurring theme in many crime novels, but never has it been portrayed with the razor-edge sharpness and psychological acuity that Connelly brings to the subject. And that's layered underneath the nonstop action of the novel's last half—the kind of full-throttle, blood-spattered narrative road race one associates with Lee Child or Stephen Hunter. There's always something new around Harry Bosch's next corner, and he has the scars to prove it. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.

LJ Reviews 2009 June #2

Det. Harry Bosch should know better than to go after an L.A. member of a Hong Kong triad; now his daughter, who lives in Hong Kong with her mother, has gone missing. An energized Connelly; with an eight-city tour. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

PW Reviews 2009 September #3

Bestseller Connelly nimbly balances Harry Bosch's personal and professional lives, both of which take a substantial beating, in his 14th novel to feature the LAPD homicide detective. Bosch, last seen with his recently discovered half-brother, lawyer Mickey Haller, in The Brass Verdict (2008), investigates the shooting death of a liquor store owner. While the murder has none of the hallmarks of a regular gang hit, Bosch discovers the dead man was paying a weekly protection fee to a man Bosch suspects is part of a Chinese triad. Even though Bosch is warned to drop the case, he doesn't take the threat seriously until he receives a video showing his 13-year-old daughter, Madeline, being kidnapped in Hong Kong, where she lives with her mother and Bosch's ex-wife, a former FBI agent. Bosch flies to Hong Kong to try to rescue Madeline, prepared to face down one of the world's most powerful crime syndicates. Tenacious as ever, Bosch is even more formidable in his role as a protective father. 10-city author tour. (Oct. 13)
