"Black is black, I want my baby back." Song lyrics

Henry Bosch is working out of the unsolved crime unit with the approach of the 20th anniversary of the Los Angeles riots.

He picks a cold case involving the murder of Anneke Jespersen who was murdered during the riots. Bosch was only able to spend a short time with the case when he was first summoned about the body being found.

As he looks into the gang warfare that predominated the area in which Anneke's body was found, he comes against a major impediment. His supervisor is a controlling officer who demands on knowing what is going on with each step of the investigation.

There is some excellent plot twists and the investigation moves to a national guard unit that was stationed in the area  during the riots.

The suspense of the story mounts as Harry gets close to the answers in spite of his busy body lieutenant who wants him on other cases.

The story is realistically told with Harry being a tough investigator who feels that the victim deserves his best. There is also nice character development as we see the kind of music Harry enjoys.

Connelly is known for his excellent conclusions and I felt that in this story, the conclusion fell a bit below the author's past masterpieces.

Overall recommended.

Please check my amazon review. I'm happy to see any comments.
