In his first case since he left the LAPD's Open Unsolved Unit for the prestigious Homicide Special squad, Harry Bosch is called out to investigate a murder that may have chilling consequences for national security. A doctor with access to a dangerous radioactive substance is found murdered in the trunk of his car. Retracing his steps, Harry learns that a large quantity of radioactive cesium was stolen shortly before the doctor's death. With the cesium in unknown hands, Harry fears the murder could be part of a terrorist plot to poison a major American city. Soon, Bosch is in a race against time, not only against the culprits, but also against the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI (in the form of Harry's one-time lover Rachel Walling), who are convinced that this case is too important for the likes of the LAPD. It is Bosch's job to prove all of them wrong.

Another very good Bosch novel. Should have read Echo Park first. Highly recommended.

Staying frosty. How books change lives. Dedicated to the librarian who gave me To Kill a Mockingbird.

Outstanding book, doesn't get any better! Bosch at his finest, and Mr. C at his!
[Sidebar: And not to go to reality-based today, but nothing about the FBI should ever surprise anyone, especially since they blatantly lied {how many, many, many times} in 1992 and claimed those hoboes some dishonest Texas newsy floozies claimed were the three tramps in Nov. 22, 1963 photographed, so obviously false for many verifiable reasons, but here's one they and any real police force would have known:

[Sometimes you must paste this and hit return on several tries, as it tends to defaul to the htm file.]

Excellent as usual. Just be aware this is a reprint of a book published in 2007. I didn't realize til I got it home that I'd already read it a few years ago.

Another excellent read from the Harry Bosch series. If you like Patterson's Alex Cross series, give Michael Connelly a try.
