From the Publisher:
Terry McCaleb, the retired FBI agent who starred in the bestseller "Blood Work," is asked by the LAPD to help them investigate aseries of murders that have them baffled. They are the kind of ritualized killings McCaleb specialized in solving with the FBI, and he is reluctantly drawn from his peaceful new life back into the horror and excitement of tracking down a terrifying homicidal maniac. More horrifying still, the suspect who seems to fit the profile that McCaleb develops is someone he has known and worked with in the past: LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch.
Annotation:

Retired FBI agent Terrence McCaleb agrees to help the LAPD to track down an elusive and terrifying serial killer.To his horror, McCaleb becomes ever more certain that the killer's profile points to one man: LAPD Detective Harry Bosch. Is McCaleb right, or is Bosch being framed?
Author Bio
Michael Connelly
Michael Connelly's best-known novels feature Hieronymous "Harry" Bosch, an LAPD detective who is relentless in his efforts to solve cold cases. Connelly feels that crime fiction performs an important function. "The world has become more confusing. It has also become more dangerous," he has said. "These books tend to follow a standard in which justice prevails. This is reassuring. I think we all look at the world and see that bad people often get away. [But] that doesn't happen too often in fiction." Connelly, who was born in Philadelphia, decided to become a crime writer after reading the works of Raymond Chandler as a teen. He earned a degree in journalism, and after being short-listed for a Pulitzer, for a 1986 story about a plane crash that he had written for a Florida newspaper, he was offered a job at the Los Angeles Times, where he remained until the mid-1990s. His first Harry Bosch novel, THE BLACK ECHO (1992), garnered an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America, an organization that Connelly would later head. Since that first outing, Bosch has been the focus of several other books, most of them bestsellers. Connelly's other series protagonist is Mickey Haller, a Los Angeles defense attorney who works out of his car. The character was introduced in THE LINCOLN LAWYER (2005), which was made into a film starring Matthew McConaughey in 2011. That did not mark the first time Connelly's work had been adapted for the big screen, however; in 2002 BLOOD WORK, a 1998 non-series novel about an ex-FBI agent who receives a heart transplant, had been filmed by Clint Eastwood. Besides seeing his characters brought to life by Hollywood, Connelly has also had the distinction of portraying himself in an episode of the ABC-TV series CASTLE.

Praise

Book
"Thankfully, Connelly plays it low-key.... The two cases come together in a surprising--and ultimately satisfying--way." - Randy Michael Signor January/February 2001

New York Times
"In the end Mr. Connelly does concoct a sufficiently tangled web of clues for Terry, but the book's moodier side seems inflated. The title and the noir aspirations come from Raymond Chandler, but Mr. Connelly has to strain this time to find a darkness of his own." - Janet Maslin 01/25/2001

Wall Street Journal
"[T]he parallels between that apocalyptic Dutch painter's frightening universe and Bosch's Los Angeles--a modern-day garden of unearthly delights--are drawn with horrible force." - Tom Nolan 03/04/2001

Entertainment Weekly
"What should have been [Connelly's] most inspired yarn yet is perfunctory and formulaic." - Jeff Jensen 02/09/2001

Chicago Tribune
"The strength of the characters and clarity of Connelly's vision will help most readers maintain a willing suspension of disbelief. Again, too, Los Angeles provides an ideal platform for the author's musings on good and evil, and his storytelling here is typically lean and mean." - Gary Dretzka 03/04/2001
