Staff Reviews


Harry Bosch is haunted by the memory of a beautiful young
Danish photojournalist murdered during the riots following the Rodney King
verdict.   The killing of the attractive blond was never solved,
swept up in the chaos of the riots and forgotten by all but Bosh.  Now he
has a chance to find justice for the dead, he is working cold cases and
searching for the evidence that will make sense of the murder.  His bosses
are not so keen for Bosch to solve the case; they fear that focusing on the killing
of the blond when there were so many other victims of color will inflame the
community. Bosch is determined; he is paying attention and reading the
clues.  A phone call that that gives away more than the caller intended, a
gun that keeps turning up in shootings, and a million pieces of the
puzzle.  This is classic Connolly; I couldn’t put it down.

“Detective Harry Bosch is haunted by the memory of a beautiful young Danish photojournalist murdered during the riots following the Rodney King verdict. The killing was never solved and is forgotten by all but Bosh. Despite the reluctance of his bosses to reopen the case because they fear that focusing on the killing of the blond when there were so many other victims of color will inflame the community, Bosch is determined to find the 'black box' that will pull all the clues together. This is classic Connolly. I couldn't put it down.”

Description


In this "superb" thriller, Detective Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to the unsolved killing of a young female photographer during the 1992 L.A. riots (Wall Street Journal).
In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved.

Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box," the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

Riveting and relentlessly paced, The Black Box leads Harry Bosch, "one of the greats of crime fiction" (New York Daily News), into one of his most fraught and perilous cases.
