Fed up with the hypocrisy of the LAPD, Harry Bosch has resigned and is forced to find a new way of life. But the life of a retiree doesn't suit him. He has always devoted himself to justice and he is still drawn toward protecting, or avenging, those whom the law has failed. When he left the LAPD Bosch took a file with him, the case of a film production assistant murdered four years earlier during a two-million-dollar robbery on a movie set. The LAPD, now operating under post 9/11 rules think the stolen money was used to finance a terrorist training camp. Thoughts of the original murder victim are lost in the federal zeal, and when it seems the killer will be set free to aid the feds' terrorist hunt, Bosch quickly finds himself in conflict with both his old colleagues and the FBI. He cannot rest until he finds the killer. With or without a badge. Michael Connelly received the Maltese Falcon Award from the Maltese Falcon Society of Japan for Lost Light, which was judged the best private eye novel published in Japan in the previous year. This is Michael Connelly's second Falcon Award, his first being for The Black Ice.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

An intriguing story...Connelly comes through. Miami Herald
Swift, absorbing. Houston Chronicle
Lost Light succeeds. Denver Post
Lost Light has all of the ingenious plotting and skillful writing that are Connelly's hallmarks. Baltimore Sun
As always, Connelly rewards mystery fans who pay attention...There is an energetic pace to the painstaking detective work...The atmosphere and supporting characters are richly textured. People
Exciting...and Connelly's coda has a kicker about Harry's private life that will draw gasps of astonishment from longtime readers. Publishers Weekly
Loyal fans of the series have gotten to know Harry over the past eight books, and they'll learn even more in this one. He remains one of the most fascinating characters in the mystery world. USA Today
“Despite some shockingly sunny developments in his personal life, Bosch wears his depression like armor, making him the perfect hero for our paranoid age.” New York Times
“Connelly’s skill as a prose craftsman remains in full force. He writes about Los Angeles and its environs as poignantly and beautifully as anyone since Nathanael West.” USA Today
“An enthralling and labyrinthine crime novel.” Sunday Times (London)
“As always, Connelly does many things well. He has internalized police procedure and the way cops think; he knows them as well as he knows himself. His prose is increasingly lean and muscular…His plot, so seemingly straightforward, builds to a series of surprises, both in the investigation and in Harry’s personal life. In novel after novel, Harry has been trying to save his soul, and as this one ends he finally, unexpectedly, has salvation in his grasp.” Washington Post
“Connelly never disappoints…In Lost Light, Michael Connelly ventures into new territory by having the taciturn Bosch narrate the story. It takes nerve and skill to tinker with a formula as successful as the Bosch series. Happily, Connelly has plenty of both…Lost Light has all of the ingenious plotting and skillful writing that are Connelly’s hallmarks.” Baltimore Sun
“Reader Cariou…has the timbre and talent to capture the sound and the moods of Harry: thoughtful, tough, driven, yet surprisingly hopeful. His treatment of the other characters—from a raspy-voiced, paraplegic ex-cop to Bosch’s disillusioned former partner Kizmin Rider—is nearly as effective. The quality of the narration plus the added production details…result in an intriguing, suspenseful audio noir package, as dark and edgy as its hero-narrator.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“Len Cariou keeps the listener completely involved. His nuanced, well-paced reading draws one into the action, not letting us sit back as passive listeners. And his Harry Bosch is entirely believable—tired, a bit jaded, yet fiercely on the case.” AudioFile
