Another enjoyable outing with Harry Bosch - 400 and something pages just zoomed past:)This book was a little slower than some of the earlier ones but I always enjoy police procedurals so it was okay with me. Harry seemed a little more mellow. He tried harder to work as part of a team and apologised nicely to Rider when he failed. And although he was still dead set on find the killer he took some of his co workers failings without comment instead of antagonising everyone. I enjoyed the fact that [...]

Harry Bosch is back with the LAPD, this time with the Open-Unsolved Unit, a new division responsible for closing cold cases. He's partnered with Kiz Rider and their first assignment is the 17-year old murder of a 16-year old biracial girl, Rebecca (Becky) Verloren. It should come as no surprise that Harry and Kiz end up opening the proverbial Pandora's box involving old police department politics. Oh, how I loved this story! I finished it in two road trip sessions and was thrilled that I had no [...]

Harry Bosch is back with the LAPD as part of the Open/Unsolved Unit. His first case is about the murder of a biracial teenager seventeen years ago. The case has been reopened because the DNA found on the murder weapon has now been analyzed and a match has been found. Harry and his partner, Kizman Rider, start weeding through the evidence, trying to put the pieces together.It's nice to see Harry back with the police department again. He's trying very hard to be a team player and not cut his partn [...]

Connelly Back To His Old SelfBosch and Connelly are back in top form in the Closers. Harry is back on the force and Connelly is back to writing Bosch in closely held third person point of view. For me, the point of view impacts the experience of Bosch considerably. For several novels now, Harry has been retired from the Police force and also written in the first person by Connelly. There is something lost in the brooding loner Bosch--the man on a mission, his credo: everyone counts or no one cou [...]

I sometimes take a break from "serious" literature to read some genre fiction. After reading Julia Keller's review of Michael Connelly's most recent novel I decided to try one of his earlier works, The Closers, featuring Detective Harry Bosch.I was not disappointed as the novel was tightly woven, suspenseful story of crime and detection. In it Detective Harry Bosch is brought out of retirement by a new chief of police and assigned to a new division called "Open-Unsolved"; basically a 'cold case' [...]

Harry is back on the force working cold cases. This case is reopened since DNA evidence is now available. While DNA is conclusive in most TV shows, it isn't in real life since it can now be read from such tiny, old samples. Often it is just evidence that someone interacted at some point - good data, but certainly not the whole story. Harry makes this clear as he follows a typically twisty tale.I almost knocked this down to 3 stars because it was pretty much just a police procedural, but dealing [...]

7.5/10Bosch is back! Well he never really went away in literature terms but he's back in terms of the LAPD. Working on the cold case unit, Bosch and his partner, Kiz Rider, are tasked with finding out who murdered a teenage girl 17 years beforehand. Quite a monumental task you would think, but advances in technology and policing means it's worth another crack when a hit on a blood sample links this case to some new information.What could be seen as a slow, procedural style book still manages to [...]

Too slow moving. Not as good as other books in the seriesVIEWER’S OPINION:This is one of the weaker books in the Harry Bosch series. If you want to read just a few of them, skip this one. Me, I intend to read them all, and I’m glad I read it. I did it as an audiobook, keeping me company while I was doing other things, so I didn’t mind the slowness. As a mystery it was average and slow at times. Nothing special was done during the investigation, kind of plodding along. But there was one nea [...]

Another super read in the Harry Bosch series as he continues his mission in life. About the time I reached the final third of the book, all other activities went out the window. Nothing could be done until the book was finished.

I think this might have been the best Bosch I’ve read since The Concrete Blonde, which is really saying something because that book was a motherfucker. I’m sure it had something to do with the fact that in this one Bosch is on the LAPD’s Open/Unsolved unit which deals with crimes that in some circumstances were committed decades ago. I’m obsessed with unresolved crimes and mysteries, especially ones where the victim was never even identified (if you want a really fucking bad case of the [...]

Description: He walked away from the job three years ago. But Harry Bosch cannot resist the call to join the elite Open/Unsolved Unit. His mission: solve murders whose investigations were flawed, stalled, or abandoned to L.A.'s tides of crime. With some people openly rooting for his failure, Harry catches the case of a teenager dragged off to her death on Oat Mountain, and traces the DNA on the murder weapon to a small-time criminal. But something bigger and darker beckons, and Harry must battle [...]

Is it me or is Harry Bosch's series turning into a police procedural genre? The only police procedural book that I know of is Ed McBain's 87th Precinct series. However, I haven't read any so I don't know how they compare. The bottom line is that in my opinion, the storyline here is pretty thin unless you enjoy an overload of police procedures. If some of my friends who read what I read (which is most, by the way) can you clue me in? I hate to put down this series but I do know it will be a numbe [...]

So this was the last Harry Bosch book I read this past weekend. We have Harry reunited with Kiz and now they are both working in the Open/Unsolved Unit in the LAPD (think Cold Case). Kiz pulled some strings and got Harry back with her and now the former partners are teaming up to figure out who was behind the murder of a young 17 year old girl in 1988. This book has a little bit of everything. You have Harry finally happy again because he is doing what he does best, closing cases. He has Kiz bac [...]

Bosch knew the dawn had nothing on the dusk. Dawn always came up ugly, as if the sun was clumsy and in a hurry. The dusk was smoother, the moon more graceful. Maybe it was because the moon was more patient. In life and nature, Bosch thought, darkness always waits.Harry Bosch returns to LAPD after three years in retirement to find a new chief has been appointed who is ridding the department of corruption and restoring its image in the eyes of the public.

I really enjoy Mr. Connelly's books, mostly because of what they have and also because of what they don't, that is explicit sex, excessive foul language and gory violence. What they do have is intelligent plotting, surprises and interesting characters. I've never been in the police and fortunately haven't had to have many dealings with the law, but Mr. Connelly seems to know what he's writing about."The Closers" is one of his books featuring Harry Bosch, who has just come out of retirement to jo [...]

In this novel, Michael Connelly tries to reinvent his character Harry Bosch by having him return to the unsolved crimes division after having retired from the LAPD, finding out that his life isn’t the same after leaving the police force. His first case is an unsolved murder of a 16 year old girl after new DNA evidence links the murder weapon to a suspect in the case. When Bosch begins to dig into the case, he finds many things that don’t add up, including links to hate crimes. What Bosch fin [...]

What a nice change from the last book. I love this author and I think I’m in love with Harry Bosch.

He is back with his partner Kit. Their first case is 17 years old. It’s recently been reopened because they have DNA and found a match.

The Closers by Michael Connelly is the 11th book in the Harry Bosch series.Harry returns to the LAPD and is assigned to the open-unsolved cases unit with his old partner Kiz Rider. They are assigned an old case from the 1980s involving the abduction and murder of a teenage girl. Harry is back where he belongs and is as sharp as ever but when things go wrong he begins to doubt himself. This book moved a lot slower for me with Harry seeming to need to explain his thoughts and actions every step of [...]

This installment of Harry Bosch is one of the best ones I've come across. I love a good murder mystery. Harry is back with his badge after 3 years retirement, running with a cold case and with limited clues. This particular one reminded me just how flawed our system can get. Just because there is DNA doesn't always mean that person is a killer. A young girl is stunned, swept away from her house, carried up a hill, shot and positioned to make it look like a suicide, and why? Read this one, it'll [...]

But after three years away from the force, he misses it and when he learns that certain personnel would no longer be there to torment him and that the new police chief is open to his returning, he decides to go back. The decider is that he will be able to work with his former partner Kizmir Rider in a new unit called Open-Unsolved. These are old murder cases that have grown cold but ar [...]

In this addition to the Harry Bosch series, Harry is called out of a 3 year retirement to work with his former partner, Kizmin Rider on the newly formed Open-Unsolved Squad of LAPD. The case assigned to Bosch and Rider concerns the murder of a teenager who'd been carried from her bedroom during the night and murdered not far from her home. The murder had originally been staged as a suicide, but even after that conclusion was ruled out, there never was a firm suspect or solution to the case.17 ye [...]

The Closers4.5 StarsHarry Bosch is back on the force and together with his new (old) partner, Kiz Ryder, investigates the unsolved murder of a teenage girl taken from her home. The case takes an unexpected turn when the evidence suggests a connection to white supremacists and the possibility that the LAPD, specifically Bosch's nemesis, Chief Irving, may have been involved in a cover up. The Closers is one of Connelly's better installments in the Harry Bosch series as the writing is succinct, the [...]

After all my praise for Connelly I have now to correct myself a little bit. Admittedly the plot of “The Closers” is good. As always Connelly knows how to lead the reader through the story, build up a lot of suspense and the end was really surprising and satisfying to me. But the middle part of the book has its length. It takes page after page to describe how they set the trap (telephone bugs, false tattoos, choosing of the right car, etc.) before the action begins. And, no, “Reichert” is [...]
