A Page-Turner

As usual, Harry Bosch is a fascinating enigma; Michael Connelly is a master at the police procedural. It is New Year's Day and a dog finds a bone in the Hollywood Hills. The dog's owner, a physician, knows the bone is human ? a 10 to 12 year-old boy.

Thus begins an intriguing case that makes lots of hard turns. The murder occurred 20 to 25 years before and the victim was brutalized on a regular basis.

The case is fascinating, Harry's love interest and their relationship is not. Julia, a ?boot,? is a mature woman who went through the police academy months earlier.

As sharp as Harry is, he begins a relationship with her rather quickly ? even though it is against LAPD's policy for a supervisor and new recruit to be romantically involved. I just didn't feel that the relationship was real; the interactions seemed wooden.

One of the things that I like about Michael Connelly is that he isn't afraid to take chances with his main character, Harry. The case provides one surprise after another but the ending was a shocker.
