THE DROP - Michael Connelly
The latest offering from Connelly in the 'Harry Bosch' series and it is excellent.
Harry is attached to the Open Unsolved Unit, investigating old homicides when he is called in to investigate the apparent suicide of a L. A. City Councillors son. The councillor is an ex- detective who loathes Bosch.
While doing this he is trying to solve an old murder where DNA was located on the victim but the suspect was only 8 years old at the time.
This is brilliant crime writing, the last 'Bosch' I read ( Nine Dragons) was poor, but the author has nailed this. Genuinely excellent. (Published 2011)
