3 Stars

An activist attorney is killed in a cute little L.A. trolley called Angels Flight, far from Harry Bosch's Hollywood turf. But the case is so explosive--and the dead man's enemies inside the L.A.P.D. are so numerous--that it falls to Harry to solve it. Now the streets are superheating. Harry's year-old Vegas marriage is unraveling. And the hunt for a killer is leading Harry to another high-profile L.A. murder case, one where every cop had a motive. The question is, did any have the guts?

I would say reading the Harry Bosch series is a guilty pleasure, but in actuality I don't feel guilty about it at all. I find the books to be enjoyable with excellent characters and fun story lines, even if not always plausible. This book was no different and as such I will continue to read and enjoy the Harry Bosch series.

There is not much to include in a review of this particular book that is unique from the overall series -- I find the character development and plot development to be natural, I find the twist and turns in the book to be appropriately placed and well nuanced, and I find the ending of the book to be wrapped up sufficiently without droning on forever after the plot is finished.

Overall, these are fun reads that are well written.

It is actually Season 4, but because the seasons are so random in which books they are based off of I won't watch any of it. I could watch seasons 2 and 4 at this point, but not 1 and 3 because they are based on later books.
