Harry Bosch is back again. Of all the things to describe the LAPD homicide detective, subtle is not one of them. That's what makes him such a good cop, after all. So when he finds Cal Moore with his brains blown out in a lonely hotel room, suicide note carefully placed in a back pocket, he knows something feels off...and he's not afraid to say so.
The next weeks are a winding road of gloom, from the dusty Mexico alleys to drug cartels in Los Angeles. He knows something's not right...and he knows there's a murderer on the loose. But questions remain: Will he be able to catch him? Is he right? Is everything what it seems? He needs to find out...both for Cal's sake and the sake of his next victim.
