He is asked to profile the killer of an unsolved murder. The victim was a scuzzball who six years earlier had been arrested by Harry Bosch for murder but then released uncharged by the DA's office. In doing what he does best - reviewing the crime scene tapes and investigative records - McCaleb picks up a clue the sheriffs missed, a plastic owl left at the crime scene that the sheriffs thought belonged to the victim. McCaleb discovers that it was left by the killer as a message. He traces this symbol to an icon used as a sign of evil in renaissance paintings, and finds that one of the most frequent users of this iconography was none other than Hieronymus Bosch, which makes Harry a suspect.

Bosch was lead investigator on a murder case that saw the arrest of the son of a wealthy and powerful man. As the trial progresses the defense strategy becomes clear: put Bosch on trial instead of the rich kid, make the focus on Bosch and his methods.

Michael Connelly is an exceptional writer and I've always looked forward to the next Harry Bosch book. The character is facinating, a bit of a rebel, unorthodox in his investigations and every episode is a teriffic read!

Once again Harry Bosch breaks open a hard nut murder mystery using both brains & brawn. This time he works in the context of art history and great paintings focused on his namesake - Hieronymus. Fascinating plot, very well written.

connely writes crime thrillers that are best literature as well. this book combines two of his bestknown protagonists-Bosch and Macaleb - who by themselves are dark and complex persons. meeting together they put this book as one of the best in crime fiction as well as in drama.
