We find Harry Bosch still at the Hollywood division, still being ostracize by the LA PD brass. A narcotic's cop of the Hollywood division turns up dead in a motel room on Christmas night. Suicide, murder? The cop was under investigation by Internal Affairs. Bosch is on call but doesn't get called but shows up anyway at the crime scene. He knows the cop Calexio Moore somewhat from an on going investigations of a drug carrier Bosch is working on. Very soon Bosch turns up information the brass doesn't want to know about and that Bosch can't let go off. We end up following a trail of bodies all the way to the California/Mexico border where the past joins the present. It's a good, decent plot with compelling characters. I kinda didn't take on Sylvia (Moore's ex) but overall it was a good second novel with one or two hunches that in the end are logically explained.
