Michael Connelly is well know for his Harry Bosch books, cleverly crafted and always introducing not only contemporary elements of life in Los Angeles, but also bringing in some of its more disreputable past. This book is no exception. In The Black Box, Bosch is investigating a 20 year old murder which happened on his watch, as he sees it. A Dutch reporter was shot during the post Rodney King riots and Bosch wants to clear the case as it has bugged him since dropping it and moving on.
Michael lives with his family in Florida.
