Bosch's life is in shambles. His girlfriend has left him. His house is condemned and he is under suspension for assualting his boss.
Bosch decides to spend his time investigating a cold case from 1961, the murder of a prostitute, his mother.
Bosch as usual,is the 'take no guff' kind of cop. his questions generate more questions and eventually lead to more murder.
Bosch is the kind of cop you would want on your side. "Everyone counts" I was very happy to see Pounds get it. I was thoroughly sick to death of him.
I loved this book. It was the best so far!! I certainly hope that Jazz sticks around for a while.
