Across the border intrigue.
on September 3, 2016
Harry is hated by everyone, all the time, and forever and ever, or so it seems. AGAIN he is on the wrong side of every supervisor. He is a lone wolf and they can't stand it because they can't control him. They see a suicide, he sees a homicide and they despise that he won't let something go.
A cop goes missing, then is discovered and the scene had been set up by someone who didn't want the investigating officers to look any further. Of course, Bosch does just the opposite and when the case gets under his skin so deeply, he cannot and will not let it go. His supervisors should know by now that he will get to the bottom, no matter who is on top trying to cover themselves and their associates.
He begins to see several cases that are coming together as tied together in a way that would not be obvious unless a tenacious detective got his teeth in it. Black ice. Not that treacherous ice covering bridges and curves, invisible until you're spinning out of control. Black ice is a very dangerous drug that is making itself known and who gets the control is sitting on a gold mine.
A trip (unauthorized, of course) to Mexico to discover why a body found in LA has evidence of insects found only one place. This uncovers a plot that has tentacles stretching into Los Angeles and must be stopped.
I can't give this five stars because of the continuing (and BORING) theme of his being under scrutiny by IAD.
