Book Review: Angel’s Flight, Michael Connelly

AngelsFlightThis is another Harry Bosch thriller by Michael Connelly. This one is set at a period of time when Harry is married to Eleanor, but the marriage is in trouble. A bad time, then, to be assigned to a highly sensitive case which could trigger riots in the discontented city if handled injudiciously.

Bosch has to handle inter-departmental politics and work with a team headed by Chasten, his sworn enemy who has investigated his own conduct in the past. The case centres on the death of Elias, a celebrity lawyer known for taking, and usually winning, cases against the LAPD.

Harry is assisted by Kizmin Rider and Jerry Edgar, but has to watch out for a high-level leak from within the case. It’s a good read, though the background case of a murdered young girl is rather harrowing.
