The plotting, at least with regards to solving the mystery is clever and full of "where does he go from here and how does he get the information" points that make this series so enjoyable.
I agree with some of the other reviewers that there is more of a TV script like quality to this one, and I found the principal perp's ability to pull together what was happening b Sometimes you just want to settle in with an old friend and get lost in his world for awhile and it is easy to do with Harry Bosch. I agree with some of the other reviewers that there is more of a TV script like quality to this one, and I found the principal perp's ability to pull together what was happening based on a few random clues to be a bit improbable but the book held my interest and was an enjoyable read.
View 1 comment. Oct 28, Robin rated it it was amazing Shelves: Detective Harry Bosch has a new cold case to explore. Twenty years ago, the body of Photo-journalist Anneke Jespersen was found in an alley during the L. She had been shot at close range. No weapon was ever found. Now ballistics has matched a bullet from another murder with the bullet that killed Anneke. Both bullets were shot from the same gun. Harry has a tough investigation in front of him with not much to go on.
To top it off, while Harry delves into this case, Internal Affairs is i Detective Harry Bosch has a new cold case to explore. To top it off, while Harry delves into this case, Internal Affairs is investigating him. Harry has his work cut out for him in this book. Twenty years after the Anneke's murder, he needs to discover what story she was working on that brought her to Los Angeles during the riots. This story captured my attention from the beginning. I had a hard time putting it down.
My rating: I am so going to need someone to hold Bosch down one of these days and say going off to investigate solo has never worked out well for him.
And due to Bosch ticking off the Chief of Police seriously at this point how does Bosch have a job he may be getting kicked after the events of this book. You don't know since that is left up in the air. I do have to say that it's get I am so going to need someone to hold Bosch down one of these days and say going off to investigate solo has never worked out well for him.
I do have to say that it's getting a little old that Bosch is always the only person in the world to care about victims. If anything, I say his single minded obsession ends up getting everyone else around him killed. And for such a smart guy he keeps getting into it with people in power.
He literally has no one to keep him safe anymore so I am just wondering about the long-game with this character. It's been a year since the events in "The Drop" which gets referenced throughout this book.
After the events of the case involving Irving's son that Bosch investigated, we find out that Irving did not get re-elected to the City Council. A more pro-police person won the seat. Kiz and Bosch have not spoken after he finds out she used him to set up Irving.
The Black Box (2012)
Kiz is now a captain somewhere and the Chief is struggling to hold onto his job. The last thing puzzles me since it seemed like based on the previous books the Chief was well liked. But now he's a politician according to Bosch so that makes him a not okay guy. Bosch seems to have few friends and is still dating a woman from the last book he met named Dr. Hannah Stone.
Bosch investigates a cold case involving a victim that he and his former partner J. Edgar called Snow White. The victim was found shot to death during the LA riots and many thought she was just in the wrong time and place.
However, Bosch believes a gun that was used was involved in several other gang related homicides and starts trying to track down who owned the gun first. This is typical Bosch going blundering around and acting like a jerk to a ton of people. There's also a weird scene when Bosch is reprimanded for calling someone by their last name and he realizes he may have been insulting his partner David Chu for years by calling him Chu, and then proceeds to keep calling him David that was just awkward to even read about.
Lord Bosch needs to do something besides listen to jazz. Maybe read a book on how to interact with others or something. His romance is pretty boring and part of me wonders why he is even with Hannah Stone. At this point he has been dating her for at least a year.
He knows about her son and even gets into some trouble because of him.
The Black Box
I am surprised he didn't cut his losses and break up with her. I guess we will see what goes down between them in the next book. Bosch's daughter Maddie is now 15 or I can't even remember.
She is in this book more than previous books though so that's one positive step forward with her character. However, I am going to complain that I found most of the things that Connelly included about her to just be padding the novel.
We go off with Maddie and Bosch at one point where he takes her to a simulator that the police use to train. And Maddie is apparently the best shot ever and also has better critical thinking than the average person. So yeah, we are setting her up to be a special snowflake. I heard from a fan that he thinks that the Bosch novels are ultimately going to focus on Maddie. I don't know if I will continue with the series if they do. I ultimately find nothing about her compelling.
There's really no one else in this book besides Bosch, Maddie, some references to Chu they barely interact , Hannah Stone, and Bosch's new boss and the Chief of Police. Bosch takes one of the guys from the unit into his confidence, but once again Bosch can't listen to anyone giving him rational advice so that character gave me no joy.
He's not talking to Kiz, J. Edgar, his other two partners are dead. I have to say I ultimately found this case boring. Bosch is focused on this case because reasons.
I called BS on the whole story-line we find out who murdered the victim and why since it was such a mess with plot holes galore that I kind of gave up trying to make it make sense. I also laughed when it looks like Bosch is finally going to meet his maker, and then someone randomly shows up to get him out of trouble.
I mean hello plot contrivance. In the end I just found the book all over the place.
Back then, still a Homicide Detective at Hollywood Division with Jerry Edgar, Harry Bosch was called into a crime scene in an alley, where a white female body was found. A foreign journalist by the name of Anneke Jespersen.
Bosch found a bullet as well, a nine-millimeter Remington, which he assumed came from the gun that killed her. But it was a city under fir 4. But it was a city under fire, Bosch was called to another crime scene, the case then given to Riot Crimes Task Force, and it was never solved. Only Bosch found out that the case was more personal than just a reporter getting killed during a riot Twenty years later.
And it is still GOOD!! My history with Harry Bosch has spanned over a decade My first taste of this series was back in -- I remember because I bought the first six books in 2 omnibus, and at that time book 8th was just released and every single time I get my hand on his story, I feel the same excitement as I did ten years ago. Bosch, for me, is simply one of the personal literary detectives.
He wasn't perfect: But Bosch had that determination that never waver, a sense of justice. I admired him for it. The case itself took life in a way that I couldn't even predicted. First, I thought it was related to some sort of war crimes, because Anneke was a Danish freelance reporter that cover war stories.
Even until half-part, I still had no idea where the crime case would take me. When it was revealed view spoiler [that Anneke came to Los Angeles to investigate some ex-Desert Storm troopers that raped her back in hide spoiler ] , I felt sad for Anneke and her brother, who has waited for twenty years to find out what has happened to his sister.
It was truly well-written plot -- by the pen of Michael Connelly. Aside from the case, I enjoyed reading about Bosch's personal life -- most notably with his daughter, Maddie. I loved that Maddie made that birthday dinner for Bosch.
I'm not sure about parenting ways of teaching teenagers about guns; how shooting simulation could be an idea of a father-daughter activity, but this is a different culture than my own, so I couldn't really judge. On another note, I did wish Bosch could be slightly kinder to his younger partner -- but maybe Bosch was always better as a lone-wolf type of detective, anyway.
Here, Bosch hinted that his DROP contract was for five years and with this book, he still had another four years coming. Could I really hope that meant that there would be at least four more books of Bosch?
Though of course, I would always get the new Bosch, no matter how many books it will be I recently wrote a short review of this for my usual outlet -- the reviews are anonymous -- and I think it is one of the best, if not the best, books of Connelly's oeuvre, which now numbers 24 novels and one collection of nonfiction. Harry Bosch is soldiering on, this time picking up the tiniest of loose ends of a case that began during the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles.
Bosch is working "cold cases," in the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit fans will remember he's nearing mandatory retirement I recently wrote a short review of this for my usual outlet -- the reviews are anonymous -- and I think it is one of the best, if not the best, books of Connelly's oeuvre, which now numbers 24 novels and one collection of nonfiction.
Bosch is working "cold cases," in the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit fans will remember he's nearing mandatory retirement , and reopens the case of Anneke Jespersen, a freelance Danish foreign correspondent, ostensibly in the City of Angels to cover the rioting.
Her murder was not pursued vigorously--no obvious clues, no obvious motive--and the city was engulfed in flames, its police forced stretched to the breaking point. But Bosch recovers a spent shell casing, and in , the technology to link it to a gun brings the case to life. Connelly has fashioned a seamless but intricate puzzle of a book, and it hits the right notes consistently. From that tiny thread of evidence, he weaves a consistently intriguing tapestry of character, narrative and observation.
At first glance, the book is a classic procedural, but Connelly's gift as a storyteller if you like his work, you'll inhale this in a few big, deep draughts--and be sorry when it's over enables "The Black Box" to transcend the notion of a genre novel. It is unmistakably great and undeniably compelling. It is also written with a dark and poetic sensibility, which will be familiar to Connelly's fans but seems to me even more distinctive and powerful in this book.
I absolutely dread the day Bosch retires from the LAPD and hope that he hangs out his own PI shingle so I can continue to read about him and the cases that engage him. Another cracking entry to the Bosch series - these just get better and better as the series goes on. Really novel twist in this one so that what looked like a fairly normal case had a very unexpected type of murderer in the end - extremely cleverly done.
Dec 01, Fred rated it it was amazing Shelves: Harry Bosch is the first person in the book. He must find if Anneke Jespersen, a photographer was shot to death in the unsolved riots. Bosch leaves him alive to suffer a very long painful life sentence in jail Another good addition to the series, although Harry jumped the shark at one point toward the end.
Excellent characters again, too. As usual, this should be read in order. See my review of the first book in the series, The Black Echo for the full Harry Bosc Another good addition to the series, although Harry jumped the shark at one point toward the end. See my review of the first book in the series, The Black Echo for the full Harry Bosch Universe chronology which differs from the one here on GR slightly.
It also contains all the short stories with links to the books in which they can be found. The story is very detailed and shows how with new technology and a lot of perseverance old crimes can now be solved. Bosch seemed a bit old and tired to me. Quite boring.
Draggy at many parts. There was no twists. Waste of my time. I only wish that I had followed this series from the start, though at the age of 7 I was more into The Secret Seven crime capers than the type of crime Michael Connelly so effortlessly delivers every single time. What an outstanding series of books and what a character. The Black Box is another gripping tale that sees Bosch once again going up against his superiors. He always comes out on top with a big fuck you to those who are against him.
Here we see Harry dealing with another of the cases he failed to solve that have lived with him ever since and once again I can only marvel at the tale that has been spun here and sees Bosch going off the reservation and putting his own life in danger to get results.
Characterisation wise and I loved the scenes with Bosch and his daughter. It seems only five minutes since we found out Bosch had a daughter and now she is a teenager with ambitions of joining the police herself and here we really get more of an insight into their relationship.
I like these characters, Bosch, Reacher et al because they are loners.
It never ceases to amaze me how Michael Connelly achieves such a constant level of excellence with his writing in relation to the excellent Hieronymous aka Harry Bosch series. As the violence escalates Bosch and his counterparts find themselves rushed from crime scene to crime scene under the protection of the National Guard, unable to devote time to each murder victim- the majority of whom end up as files in the Open Unsolved Unit where Bosch is now based.
Bosch is haunted by one particular murder, that of a female Danish photo-journalist, Anneke Jesperson, shot at point blank range in an alley during one of those fateful nights, and re-opens the investigation into her death. Once again, Bosch is presented as a harbinger of morality, where the rights of the victim are at the forefront and the quest for justice paramount.
Yet again Connelly has hit the ground running with another solid and engrossing addition to the Bosch canon, and this will be sure to please die-hard fans or those lucky enough to be picking up their first Bosch thriller.
Definitely a page turner and an excellent read. The Black Box is the 18th book in the series and there are two stories in it. The story opens in during the chilling and traumatic events of the L. South Central riots to work on a homicide of a white woman that had been killed in an execution style in an alley.
Because of the chaos during that time, the crime was never solved. Twenty years later, Harry re-opens the case. To see how he methodically gathers evidence on the case and how he follows the clues that no one else but him would see is a joyful journey.
Fitting the pieces of a puzzle together!!! Though I thought the end was tied up too quickly with the solving of the case. His love for her, his guilt at leaving her alone so much and the way he tries to let her know how much she means to him was so endearing and poignant. I hope that the author will give us a Maddie Bosch Series one day……hopefully not having us waiting for too long!!!!!
The best Bosch book in a long time. Sure-footed, complex, a cold-case to beat all cold cases. Clues which must be teased from the past and the present. We also see Maddie growing in skills and vision, and Bosch's joy and trepidation in her chosen direction in life. Connelly poignantly presents the deep pain of a brother whose sister has been killed, and whose pain Bosch shares in His Mission for justice, to speak for the dead. Please, go ahead.
