    This is another very good entry in Michael Connelly s series featuring L.A homicide detective Harry Bosch The case opens in the middle of the night when Harry s team is called out to the scene of a double homicide A man and a woman have been shot to death on a trolley called Angels Flight Harry cannot figure out why he has been called since his team is out of the rotation

    As research for a novel I m writing I m reading detective fiction and stealing everything of value My story takes place in L.A of the early 90s and burgling Michael Connelly turned out to be a bonanza Not only has Connelly written 23 Harry Bosch novels basis for theseries Bosch, which in its sixth season, combines one orbooks, updated to present day, per season but the literary

    It s tough to write a review about Michael Connelly s 2000 Harry Bosch novel Angels Flight without introducing spoilers.I want to tell about his brilliant use of multiple famous crimes and his ability to weave together multiple police investigations and then tie them all together and wrap up his story with a heaping second helping of poetic justice.But I d give it all away and Connelly has pr

    My first ever Harry Bosch novel and I really enjoyed it Harry is a wonderful character and I am so glad he is not an alcoholic like so many of the main characters in these kinds of books I can cope with the fact that he is trying to give up smoking and that he is bad at relationships Those things just make himreal The story line in this book is excellent and full of twists and turns The book starts

    Holy moly this was a convoluted one And I say that in the most complimentary way possible Harry is once again brought in to solve a case that threatens disaster no matter the outcome, and all the suspects keep ending up dead which leads to convenient assumption type answers that Harry just doesn t eff with This case was a riddle inside an enigma spritzed with a little dusting of mystery, andlayered than an

    When the phone rang in the early hours of the morning, Detective Harry Bosch wasn t in bed where the caller expected him to be he had in fact been pacing the house in the darkness, willing the phone to ring but the voice at the other end of the line wasn t the voice he wanted to hear He felt the desolation hit him again but the call out by Deputy Chief Irving was another shock out of their area, out of their dist

    Harry and his team Kizmin Rider Harry Edgar are called to a murder scene at Angels Flight They soon find they ve been assigned the worst of cases as the victim is a high profile civil rights attorney who is in the middle of a multimillion dollar lawsuit against the LAPD As with many of his cases, Harry s just drawn a really thorny, short stick I literally could not stop listening to this story with its many layers, twists, tur

  10. William William says:

    A complex and satisfying Bosch mystery I do believe that Harry is becoming farpolitically adept as he ages, but at a cost.Angels Flight takes place in April 1999, so it appears that Harry and Eleanor have been married almost three years by this point.Sadly, in this book we see Eleanor and Harry s marriage break down This is well portrayed in several scenes throughout the book, very poignant, and without rancour Note that despite what
