LOST LIGHT by Michael Connelly was read for the What's in a Name 6 Challenge.
The vision has haunted him for four years - a young woman lying crumpled in death, her hand outstretched in silent supplication. Harry Bosch was taken off the Angella Benton murder case when the production assistant's death was linked with the violent theft of two million dollars from a movie set. Both files were never closed. Now retired from the LAPD, Bosch is determined to find justice for Angella. Without a badge to open doors and strike fear into the guilty, he's on his own. And even in the face of an opponent more powerful and ruthless than any he's ever encountered, Bosch is not backing down.
Although Harry has been retired for a year, he's kept files on some of his old unsolved cases. This particular case, the murder of Angella Benton, has a strong pull for him and he's determined to find her killer. He finds a link between the murder, the two million dollar theft, and a missing FBI agent and won't quit until he finds the common bond. Along the way, he enlists the help of friends in the LAPD and the FBI, while also making an enemy of another FBI agent. Throw in a couple of visits to his ex-wife in Las Vegas, where she's hiding a huge secret, and you've got another great Harry Bosch book.
I'm finally getting some answers to questions generated by the later books. The next book in the series, THE NARROWS, is waiting for me.
