I have to say so far out of all Bosch books I have read so far this one is my favorite. I really enjoyed the story, plot and character direction. I am really happy to see Harry Bosch become private investigator working on his own terms not dealing with the politics of the department.

FBI agent Rachel Walling makes a comeback to work with Bosch I love all the books she is with Harry Bosch. Her and Bosch have a great chemistry that just works well in the books. I always like to see Bosch with female partner I feel they keep him in check better.

Rachel Walling greatest fears have come true the Poet has surfaced. She has never forgotten the serial killer who wove lines of poetry in his hideous crimes and apparently he has not forgotten her. Harry Bosch gets pulled in from the widow of an old friend. Her husband’s death seems natural, but his ties to the hunt for the Poet make Bosch dig deep.

Arriving at a derelict spot in the California desert where the feds are unearthing bodies, Bosch joins forces with Rachel. Now the two are at odds with the FBI and squarely in the path of the Poet.

We get to see Bosch new car in action as he rips around the hot desert and deals with his new roll as a father. He has to change his life a little to handle his ex wife and new daughter.

Best Harry Bosch book so far out of the series a 5 out of 5 stars.
