Description

The Black Echo by Michael Connelly

For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch -- hero, maverick, nighthawk -- the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal.

The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell. Now, Bosch is about to relive the horror of Nam. From a dangerous maze of blind alleys to a daring criminal heist beneath the city to the tortuous link that must be uncovered, his survival instincts will once again be tested to their limit.

Joining with an enigmatic and seductive female FBI agent, pitted against enemies inside his own department, Bosch must make the agonizing choice between justice and vengeance, as he tracks down a killer whose true face will shock him.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 28, 1993 – Connelly transcends the standard L.A. police procedural with this original and eminently authentic first novel, featuring Hieronymus (aka Harry) Bosch, a former hero cop exiled to the small-time Beverly Hills force. In July, Little, Brown will publish a sequel, Black Ice .

Customer Reviews

Awesome Series

Read every one of his novels and this is easily the best series I've ever read!

One of Many....

Like many I got hooked on Connelly reading "The Lincoln Lawyer". Although I truly love Michael Hallers Character in the book, The Black Echo got me hooked on Harry Bosh and is by far my favorite Bosh Book.

Landmark mystery not to be missed

Michael Connelly in 1992 took the cop story to a whole new level in this Edgar winning debut novel. A steal at this price for a classic. What makes this book exceptional is the layered plot told seamlessly. Since then he and others have equalled or exceeded it, but don't miss this treasure.
