I have been a bosch fan from the outset. Connelly was the most compelling author in this genre. I have said that the Bosch novels have lost their bite lately. I have re-read previous novels and compared to the current offerings to make sure my positions are valid. Unfortunately, I stand by my observations. And that is okay, since this is not a bad book. It is just not a Harry Bosch novel. And I am afraid Harry is lost and gone forever.
