I hadn't read a Harry Bosch story in awhile and it took a bit to get back to the character. Story got complex but it tied together at the end. It was fun to learn how Harrys personal life was going and the end left things open for more.

“Only in books do we learn what’s really going on.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Melanie Joy
“Becoming aware of the intense suffering of billions of animals, and of our own participation in that suffering, can bring up painful emotions: sorrow and grief for the animals; anger at the injustice and deception of the system; despair at the enormity of the problem; fear that trusted authorities and institutions are, in fact, untrustworthy; and guilt for having contributed to the problem. Bearing witness means choosing to suffer. Indeed, empathy is literally 'feeling with.' Choosing to suffer is particularly difficult in a culture that is addicted to comfort--a culture that teaches that pain should be avoided whenever possible and that ignorance is bliss. We can reduce our resistance to witnessing by valuing authenticity over personal pleasure, and integration over ignorance.”
