It's not his merits that make Harry Bosch, LAPD homicide police, a good cop. Rather, it's his instincts...and this time they've led him to something more terrible than he can ever imagine. Stretching all the way back to 1992, there's a case out there that looks like the ends are about to tie up...and not in a way that Harry deems good.
In a sudden misstep, Harry accidentally links a bullet from a recent homicide all the way back to that old case...and it turns out, it may be a lot more than a random act of nonsense. He's seen this before, and it's more than a little eerily familiar. As he combs through the case, he knows what he needs to find: the 'black box' that will glue all the clues from this mystery together. Will he find it in time?
The Black Boxis a gripping suspense tale, great for any mystery lover in your life.

In a case that spans twenty years, Harry Bosch links the
bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female
photographer during the LA riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but
it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved.
Now Bosch’s ballistics match indicates that her death was
not random violence but something more personal—and connected to a deeper
intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane
crash, Bosch searches for the “black box,” the one piece of evidence that will
pull the case together.
Riveting and relentlessly paced, The
Black Box leads Harry Bosch, “one of the greats of crime fiction” (New
York Daily News), into one of his most fraught and perilous cases. Download and start listening now!
