The Drop by Michael Connelly

Harry Bosch is nearing permanent retirement and he realizes that the most important thing for him, besides his daughter, is to continue to work for the LAPD. He came back from retirement once and he has been granted his last extension to continue to work in the homicide division. He and his partner Detective Chu are about to start work on a new cold case when the Police Commissioner tells them they are to work an alleged suicide at the Chateau Marmont hotel.

The entire matter is strange because Bosch has been personally requested for the assignment by Councilman Irvin Irving. Although Irving is now a Councilman, he was once a cop and a bitter enemy of Harry’s. It’s the Councilman’s son, George, who either fell or was pushed from a seventh floor window, and Irving wants Harry to investigate. Harry would have preferred to work on the cold case, but what the Commissioner wants the Commissioner gets.

Kiz Ryder, Harry’s old partner, is now the Police Commissioner’s right hand man, but she is also a conduit to Harry. The Commish wants this matter resolved with as much speed as possible, but Harry is also drawn back to his cold case when the DNA found on the raped and murdered victim indicates a suspect who would have been 8 years old at the time of the crime.  Bosch has almost too much on his plate at this time.

Fans of Michael Connelly who have followed this protagonist over the years will not be disappointed in his latest Harry Bosch thriller.
