Harry attacked his commanding officer and is suspended indefinitely, pending a psychiatric evaluation. At first he resists the LAPD shrink, but finally recognizes that something is troubling him and has for a long time. In 1961, when Harry was twelve, his mother, a prostitute, was brutally murdered with no one ever accused of the crime. With the spare time a suspension brings, Harry opens up the thirty-year-old file on the case and is irresistibly drawn into a past he has always avoided. It's clear that the case was fumbled and the smell of a cover-up is unmistakable. Someone powerful was able to divert justice and Harry vows to uncover the truth. As he relentlessly follows the broken pieces of the case, the stirred interest causes new murders and pushes Harry to the edge of his job... and his life.

"On leave for attacking his commanding officer, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch has time on his hands. He decides to spend it on a case that cuts close to his angst-ridden heart, the 30-year-old unsolved murder of his mother. When Harry smells a cover-up, he pushes on. Connelly is at the top of his form in this brilliant mystery. Dick Hill does an outstanding job capturing Bosch's cynicism and anger, confusion and hurt. Hill changes his voice well to portray the other characters, most notably the female police psychiatrist. One gimmick is annoying: the producers switch to a tinny tone whenever a voice on the phone is needed. Still, this is a first-rate production. P.B.J.
