The drop : a novel / by Connelly, Michael,

Publication: Crows Nest, N.S.W. : Allen & Unwin, 2011 . 388 p. ; 24 cm. Date: 2011

Bosh has a new lady in his life and is trying to keep it from his teenage daughter, but she manages to outsmart him. He considers she will have a great career in the police force, is this a lead into a new series in the future as Harry is getting on in years, who knows. I thought the story to be very interesting with the interplay of the many characters who all act to muddy the waters in one way or another and keep you guessing. The return of Irving into Harry Bosch's life was an interesting move. Added 05/11/2013 by
