In 1961, when Harry was eleven, his mother was brutally murdered. No one was ever even accused of the crime. Harry opens up the decades-old file on the case and is irresistibly drawn into a past he has always avoided. It's clear that the case was fumbled. His mother was a prostitute, and even thirty years late the smell of a cover-up is unmistakable. Someone powerful was able to keep the investigating officers away from key suspects. Even as he confronts his own shame about his mother, Harry relentlessly follows up the old evidence, seeking justice or at least understanding. Out of the broken pieces of the case he discerns a trail that leads upward, towards prominent people who lead public lives high in the Hollywood hills. And as he nears his answer, Harry finds that ancient passions don't die. They cause new murders even today.Read Less

anything by michael connelly is a great read. If you have not read any of his books start with black echo and read them in order. his characters come back and even show up in books that they are not the main character in. I have read them all twice.

Always a good read
Although Connelly isn't a great writer, he is one of the best with the Cop/murder genre; this is one of his earlier efforts -- recently reissued in hard cover (paper over boards w/o DJ) but a really pleasant read. Buy and enjoy
