5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, June 21, 2006
This review is from: Angels Flight (Harry Bosch) (Mass Market Paperback)
This 1999 book is a re-read for me. Can't remember all the details of a 7 year old book so it's as good as a new book for me.

Connelly, as usual, writes a very good crime book. It's not fast paced, it's not scary, but it's a very good police crime book.

Connelly's forte is writing realistic characters. I know all the protagonists, Bosch, Edgar, Kiz, Irvine and Chastain from previous books where he did a good job of bringing them to life.

There is a very good depiction of how the LAPD and LA reacts to a very serious crime, very realistically written and almost worth the cost of the book itself. However, it might put off some of his audience......

There is only minor subplot here, and some interesting stuff about the internet, but that's 7 years old. I didn't really like the subplot with Eleanor since this is a crime book, not a drama. I cringed when I read about Eleanor since I did not want to be reading 3-4 pages about something that had nothing to do with the plot.

The crime itself is very nicely plotted out. We are led along the leads and are right there as Bosche unravel the crime(s). Like I said, not very fast paced, but a very solid crime book. This was not a book I had to read til my eyelids dropped. I could put it down and do other stuff and get back to it, but still a very worthy addition to the Bosch collection. I don't want to give anything about the plot away so that's all I'll say about it.
