#12: The Black Box by Michael Connelly

Cold case detective Harry Bosch goes back, on the anniversary of the L.A. riots, to a murder from that time period that has always plagued his conscience; soon he is right back in a case that stretches from the California 'burbs to the first Desert Storm in Michael Connelly's The Black Box.

Connelly's Harry Bosch novels are, I believe, one of the great contemporary crime series and one whose latest additions I am always quick to pick up and read (This one I nabbed from the Farmland Public Library).

The last few novels have especially built a head of steam, seemingly heading towards Bosch's retirement (if he doesn't go out with a bang in some way).  A bit hard to pick up and fully appreciate without having read Connelly before, but recommended for fans.
