Cop commits suicide on Christmas ... or does he?

Harry Bosch doesn't believe it was suicide. Of course the bosses don't want him anywhere near the case. Then there is this other cop who has climbed into the bottle and Harry's boss wants him to clear up a case of his. The case crosses back to the dead cop. Even though the bosses don't want him near it.

Great ending. Connelly never disappoints on the endings.

I had certain misgivings about this book - black ice cna be a couple of things. Those of us in the Midwest know it in winter as we go slippin' and slidin' on it. It is a road covered in unseen ice and one can easily slide into other cars on it. Harry doesn't know anything about this kind of ice until the widow tells him. And then there is the black ice which is a drug made in Hawaii or Mexico.

Anyway, so I was afraid this book was going to go way into drugs. It doesn't go way into it. Just kind of on the verge.
