I have been a very big fan of Mr. Connelly and have read every single Harry Bosch novel (29 of them?) that he wrote including the Lincoln Lawyer ones.
I was looking forward eagerly to this one and got on the list early and was among the first batch of VPL readers to get their copy and read it in three days.
I found it un-satisfying. It was as if Bosch was behind an opaque screen, or out of focus. I could not sense him clearly in the book. The whole book seemed watered-down, somewhat bland despite some exciting situations for Harry and the other main character, Det. Renee Ballard.
Perhaps Mr. Connelly's creative energies are being expended in the Amazon Prime Video series about Harry entitled, "Bosch" of which he is Executive Producer to the detriment of his writing.
