Two of Connelly's characters from different series come together in this novel to create quite a gripping story. Terry McCaleb is an ex-FBI agent who retired from the agency after a heart operation and the birth of his baby girl. Detective Harry Bosch is with the LAPD and in the middle of a huge trial, trying to convict a Hollywood producer of murdering a woman.
McCaleb gets a call from an old colleague working a murder case to come up with a profile of the killer. McCaleb finds some points that the lead investigator misses and all roads point to Bosch. Bosch can't afford to be in the spotlight for a murder investigation because he is the star witness against the Hollywood producer.
This is another great book in the Bosch series. I really enjoyed McCaleb too, even though I hadn't read any of Connelly's books with McCaleb as the main character. I think the two characters would have made for a great partnership. Looking forward to the next book in the series!
First Line: "Bosch looked through the small square of glass and saw that the man was alone in the tank."
