Echo Park – Michael Connelly

Another excellent encounter with detective Harry Bosch in his first big case following his return to LAPD after an early retirements and stint as a PI. Again the story revolves around one of Hollywood’s many open-unsolved cases – the disappearance and presumed murder of a young woman – which Harry first investigated 13 years previously; only now it looks like she was one of many victims of a serial killer.

A few familiar faces turn up to help out Harry in his quest to track down the murderer, and the truth – and given that politicians and elections come into the mix too Harry faces even more dirty double dealings (and plot twists and turns) than usual. link: Echo Park – Michael Connelly
