Former LAPD Detective Harry Bosch returns in this "New York Times" bestseller. Harry investigates the death of an old friend who had ties to the hunt for the infamous serial killer, The Poet. What Harry finds leads him into the most terrifying situation he has ever encountered.
From the Publisher:
When an infamous serial killer known as the Poet reemerges, FBI agent Rachel Walling, long haunted by her unsuccessful efforts to bring him to justice, receives assistance from LAPD detective Harry Bosch, who finds the case to be the most terrifying of his career. Reprint.
This 10th Harry Bosch novel links the retired LA cop with characters from previous non-Bosch novels. A serial killer and ex-FBI agent named Robert Backus, the title character from Michael Connelly's first novel, THE POET, was commonly thought to be dead. But now the Poet has resurfaced and has started killing again. At risk is FBI agent Rachel Walling, a former protg of Backus who subsequently investigated his first killing spree. As she begins a new hunt for the Poet, her path crosses that of Harry Bosch, who believes that the natural-seeming death of a friend, Terry McCaleb (a character from Connelly's BLOOD WORK and A DARKNESS MORE THAN NIGHT), may actually have been one of the Poet's murders.
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.
