Fed up with the hypocrisy of the LAPD, Harry Bosch has
resigned and is forced to find a new way of life. But the life of a retiree
doesn’t suit him. He has always devoted himself to justice and he is still
drawn toward protecting, or avenging, those whom the law has failed.
When he left the LAPD Bosch took a file with him, the case of a film production assistant
murdered four years earlier during a two-million-dollar robbery on a movie set. The
LAPD, now operating under post 9/11 rules think the stolen money was used to
finance a terrorist training camp. Thoughts of the original murder victim are
lost in the federal zeal, and when it seems the killer will be set free to aid
the feds’ terrorist hunt, Bosch quickly finds himself in conflict with both his
old colleagues and the FBI. He cannot rest until he finds the killer. With or
without a badge.
