Former LAPD detective Harry Bosch is running a private investigations business and working as a volunteer detective for the tiny San Fernando Police Department (SFPD) when he is summoned to the home of billionaire Whitney Vance. Nearing the end of his life, the octogenarian tells a story of young love, an unexpected pregnancy, and a relationship cut short by Vance's father. The old man has decided that rather than leave his fortune to his company's Board of Directors, he'd rather find out if he has an heir—and that's where Bosch fits into the picture. With only a name, he sets out to determine what happened to Vance's lover and her baby. At the same time, Bosch is busy with his SFPD partner Bella Lourdes, trying to track down a serial rapist who cuts screen doors to access his victims' homes. And Harry's half-brother, attorney Mickey Haller, makes a brief crossover appearance.
VERDICT This solid read will please both Connelly's longtime fans and readers seeking police detective stories. [See Prepub Alert, 5/16/16.]
