In a case that spans twenty years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the LA riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch’s ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence but something more personal and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the “black box,” the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

Riveting and relentlessly paced, The Black Box leads Harry Bosch into one of his most fraught and perilous cases.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“At his core, Harry Bosch is a cop with a mission—to tip the scales of justice toward the side of murder victims and their survivors…As usual, Bosch faces not only the seeming impossibility of reconstructing a crime that has been cold for two decades but also the roadblocks imposed by the bureaucrats at the top of the LAPD. But Bosch has never met a roadblock he wasn’t compelled to either barge through or cannily avoid. Harry is such a compelling character largely due to his fundamentally antiestablishment personality, which leads to chaos as often as to triumph but also because his unswerving work ethic reflects not simply duty but also respect for the task before him. Harry does it right, even—or especially—when his bosses want something else entirely. That’s the case this time…We like Harry, as we like many other fictional crime solvers, because he never stops, but we love him because he has the scars to prove that never sliding is no easy thing.” Booklist (starred review)
“Narrator Michael McConnohie…rises to the task when reading dialogue, infusing characters with energy, passion, and personality.” AudioFile
“LAPD Detetective Harry Bosch is back, smart enough to connect a current murder with the 1992 killing of a young female photographer during riots in Los Angeles. That killing, never solved by the Riot Crimes Task Force, now seems a whole lot more personal than anyone ever thought.” Library Journal
“[In] Connelly’s excellent eighteenth Harry Bosch novel…the tenacious detective finds himself caught in a maelstrom of departmental politics and personal danger as he searches for the “black box” of the title. Connelly draws on all his resources—his thorough knowledge of police work, his ability to fashion a complex tapestry of plot, and his ever deepening characterization of Bosch—to craft a mystery thriller sure to enthrall fans and newcomers alike.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Suspenseful; compelling character development; headed for bestseller lists.” Barnes&Noble.com, editorial preview
The Black Box is the eighteenth novel by Michael Connelly featuring Harry Bosch…It’s one of the very best.” Chicago Tribune
