Book Review - Black Ice (Harry Bosch #2)
Title: The Black Ice (Harry Bosch #2)
Author: Michael Connelly
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Synopsis (from BN.com): Narcotics officer Cal Moore's orders were to look into the city's latest drug killing. Instead, he ends up in a motel room with a fatal bullet wound to the head and a suicide note stuffed in his back pocket. Working the case, LAPD detective Harry Bosch is reminded of the primal police rule he learned long ago: Don't look for the facts, but the glue that holds them together. Soon Harry's making some very dangerous connections, starting with a dead cop and leading to a bloody string of murders that wind from Hollywood Boulevard to the back alleys south of the border. Now this battle-scarred veteran will find himself in the center of a complex and deadly game-one in which he may be the next and likeliest victim.
My thoughts: I am loving this Harry Bosch series - they have become my go to ebooks while on the elliptical in the gym! In this second book in the series, hard-core cop Harry Bosch sets out to investigate the death of narcotics officer Cal Moore. As the invetigation gets heated, things are of course not what they seem.
The book takes you on an exciting journey from the streets of LA to the drug wars of Mexico! The characters are real, the story fast and intriguing with plenty of police corruption, twists, and turns to keep things interesting! This book also lays out Harry Bosch's connection to Defense Attorney Micky Haller (from Connelly's Lincoln Lawyer).
This series is worth a read! I'm moving quickly on to #3 Concrete Blonde!
My Rating: : ) : ) : ) : ) Liked it!!!!
