The Black Ice

The Black Ice by Michael Connelly begins with what the reader is told is a relatively common occurrence: a cop’s suicide. Respect dictates that the investigation not be dragged out, but LAPD Homicide Detective Harry Bosch is dogged as always. When he finds incongruities and inconsistencies, he pulls on those loose threads until he finds himself plunged into more murder, corruption, and ties to the Mexican drug trade. Connelly doesn’t disappoint in this second outing with his signature protagonist; it’s a slick narrative that keeps the reader on their toes and guessing all the way to the end.
