I tend to read most crime thrillers when someone else leaves them in the house. Glad they left this one as it was fun to read on the exercise bike.

It's a traditional whodunnit and even though it was fairly clear to me long before the end who actually "dunnit", I enjoyed the process of detection and deduction that is the key to this kind of book. In some ways it reminded me of an Agatha Christie novel as Connelly leaves little clues scattered among the pages to allow the reader to possibly think ahead of the detectives.

The "happy ever after" ending with the forced exit of a morally bankrupt official was way too Hollywood for me, but I suppose we have to expect that from a writer whose book is set in LA!

Don't look to this book for characters with great depth - all except Bosch are really two dimensional - but it is a good story.
