Connelly, for sharing your gift with us. He explained so many things about police procedure that are too obvious to ordinary people.

Susan Kirk I have read all the Bosch series and really liked them. At the autopsy it is discovered that this was no mistaken, random shooting but a very professional execution.

Procedurals are hard enough to follow but without immediate scenes and heavily laden with data and specifics dragged on, not the Connelly tale I used to love.
