Ã Read ✓ Angels Flight by Michael Connelly Ý A black civil rights attorney is murdered The lawyer was about to go to trial with a high profile case against the LAPD for police abuse against a murder suspect The suspect was black, the police were white Harry Bosch is assigned to the case and told to solve the murder as quickly as possible in order to avoid potential civic unrest.
This is the first Harry Bosch novel I ve read Connelly s The Lincoln Lawyer, about defense attorney Mickey Haller, was a fun, fast paced, suspense laden thriller This one gets mired down in sub plots involving Bosch s crumbling marriage, the political in games Bosch has to play to get anything done, and some of the creepiest stuff I ve read in a while.
Bosch has to be able to see the forest for the trees in a case that quickly zigs and zags in some fairly dark and unexpec When the phone rang in the early hours of the morning, Detective Harry Bosch wasn t in bed where the caller expected him to be he had in fact been pacing the house in the darkness, willing the phone to ring but the voice at the other end of the line wasn t the voice he wanted to hear He felt the desolation hit him again but the call out by Deputy Chief Irving was another shock out of their area, out of their district, and into an explosive case that would change lives, and in a violent and permanent way.
Angels Flight was a combination of two trolley cars which ran from top to bottom of one of the steep inclines of LA the motor to run the cars was at the top and operated by a driver The two cars would pass each other in the centre it made Angels Flight a great tourist attr My first ever Harry Bosch novel and I really enjoyed it Harry is a wonderful character and I am so glad he is not an alcoholic like so many of the main characters in these kinds of books I can cope with the fact that he is trying to give up smoking and that he is bad at relationships Those things just make him real The story line in this book is excellent and full of twists and turns The book starts off steadily and then rapidly becomes a page turner designed to keep the reader up late at night And the ending is just perfect although quite a surprise So now I have to go back and read the first Harry Bosch novel which I believe is the start of a series of about nineteen books Lovely.
Holy moly this was a convoluted one And I say that in the most complimentary way possible Harry is once again brought in to solve a case that threatens disaster no matter the outcome, and all the suspects keep ending up dead which leads to convenient assumption type answers that Harry just doesn t eff with This case was a riddle inside an enigma spritzed with a little dusting of mystery, and layered than an onion and I loved it, while at the same time kind of waiting for the disaster to strike every other sentence I have come to realize that this series is now my go to for when I don t know what I want to read, because I know that there s gonna be an interesting case or two or three and that Harry s situation is going to be tenuous at best, but despite it all, he s gonna do his damndest to get to the bottom of it eve
LAPD s Black Warrior case Micheal Harris black kid accused of killing of a 10 year old white girl The 4th day girl s body found he s released innocent RHD Robbery A complex and satisfying Bosch mystery I do believe that Harry is becoming far politically adept as he ages, but at a cost.
Angels Flight takes place in April 1999, so it appears that Harry and Eleanor have been married almost three years by this point.
Sadly, in this book we see Eleanor and Harry s marriage break down This is well portrayed in several scenes throughout the book, very poignant, and without rancour Note that despite what you might read in the Harry Bosch Wikia, their daughter, Madeline, has not been born yet.
The mystery itself is complex with a large cast The issues of race and police corruption are prevalent throughout, but well presented, believable and sadly a reflection of the realities of the day.
There is an additional theme This is only my second book about Harry Bosch, the first one was The Concrete Blonde And I have to admit that I liked this one even than the previous one.
Bosch is given the case of the murder of two people on the historic tram line It immediately turns out that one of the victims is the lawyer most hated by all policemen The list of people who wanted his death is extended and there are some Harry s colleagues on it The evidence disappears very quickly and false trails are created even for no reason Meanwhile, it seems that Bosch s supervisors does not care too much to find a murderer but rather to stop any possible riots in the city.
I found this book very interesting and suspenseful There are lots of twists and turns It is also quite somber at some time view spoiler two people commit suicide, the book also deals with child abuse hide spoiler
