The Drop is the 24th novel by American crime author Michael Connelly, and the fifteenth novel featuring Los Angeles Police Department detective Harry Bosch. The book was published on 22 November 2011.Wikipedia
This is the first book I’ve read/heard by author Michael Connelly. I listened to the audio version and it was performed well. The character of Harry Bosch was well portrayed as were other characters.
I felt the story took off slowly, but it worked well for the story to do so. It was much like the detective/protagonist building a case. When it got going the story couldn’t be put down.
The story intertwines the hunt for the truth in a case that waffles back and forth between suicide and murder as the cause of death. Each waffle had me convinced that was the truth.
Simultaneously Bosch works a twenty-year-old cold case that ends with…
Detective Bosch is made very believable as the single parent of a fifteen-year-old daughter, and by his relationship with a woman he meets during the course of his investigation. Relational dynamics between he and his partner keep tension throughout.
I will be reading more books by Mr. Connelly and gave it a solid four stars.
